Fully managed IT support and guidance for small to medium-sized businesses based in Barnstaple

All of our fully managed plans have unlimited telephone and remote support built-in. Our front line team ensures that within seconds you are
talking to someone who can help.

Maintenance is an essential part of what we do to improve the performance and security of your Microsoft systems. We proactively managed your updates and security patches.

Organisations have many technology partners and they will provide specialist support we will always be available as an initial point of contact or as an escalation point, should you need it.

Our experience working with hundreds of organisations, thousands of technology providers and our specialist knowledge of Microsoft technologies mean our team are ideally placed to provide advice and guidance on all things IT.

With our weekday extended hours from 7.30 am – 6.30 pm, we got your team covered and there’s no need to pay for after-hours support again. Need emergency support outside of these times? No problem, our emergency out of hours support is available to access on all our managed IT support plans.

We place great effort into ensuring our front line support team are available in under a minute. Each month 89% who answer our customer satisfaction survey rate us as very easy to get help from. For any reason (within our working hours) a caller does not get through within 60 seconds, we will send them an apology.

A majority of IT support requests are straightforward and resolved within a few minutes. We have technicians available to pick up your call and provide support there and then.

Our response times are some of the best in the industry, plus we like to do things a little differently. Our front line support provides general support within a few seconds and our rapid escalation team are on hand to pick up critical priority issues. We continually improve on our delivery of support so we can keep a five-star service.

We have a highly trained team of experienced technicians assigned to escalation support. To ensure critical faults are dealt with as and when they arise.

When people join an organisation we know how important it is their equipment is ready and they know how to use it. Our unique induction means new starters can schedule a 1-2-1 virtual training session with one of our team. We will give them a guided tour of their new digital workplace, answer any questions and ensure that they know how to contact us if they need help.

Training provides an essential part of protecting your organisation and its data. That is why all our fully managed support plans include a monthly Cyber Security Awareness training. Our training is instructor-led by our Cyber Security Analyst. There is no limit to the number of attendees that can join or how frequently.

We use the best tools on the market to monitor, maintain and support your network. Our tools automatically alert us to problems that can be investigated and resolved in the background without interruption.

The support you receive must be appropriate and flexible to changes in your organisation.  Agreement flex is our way of adapting to changes that can occur at any time in a flexible, open and transparent way.

One of the most important aspects of what we do is onboarding. We manage any overlap in the final stages of the notice period from your previous provider to ensure a seamless, fully managed transfer.

We will work with you to identify products and solutions you use and make sure you are getting the most out of them, highlighting enhancements we think you should be aware of and regularly revisiting and updating the roadmap as our partnership progresses.

As part of our onboarding process, one of our Cyber Security team will work with you to complete a full cyber security audit and we’ll highlight and roadmap any recommendations that come out of the process. We’ll also get your team set up and for the Cyber Awareness programme to bolster user awareness and organisational security.

As part of client onboarding and annual review, we work through your existing disaster recovery and backup arrangements to ensure they are robust and meet the needs of your organisation. We can then monitor and support any solutions under our management.

Barnstaple Support Requests

IT Champion recognise that no two clients are the same. That’s why we offer multiple ways for our Barnstaple clients to request IT support.

Our first line of support is a dedicated telephone number that will connect your business to a Microsoft Certified IT Support Engineer or Technician instantly. This number has no call waiting or telephone answering machines; you’ll simply go straight through to a consultant on our Barnstaple team. If you have an urgent enquiry or you need a repair carried out, one of our technicians will be happy to assist.

Our preferred method for requesting IT support is the IT Champion Client Portal and ticket system. Whether you want to view account information, download monitoring reports, or simply check on the progress of an ongoing project, you can do it all via your own unique online client portal.

Customer-focused IT Support

At IT Champion our unique vision has led us to be recognised as one of the top IT system providers in the South West. One of the reasons we’ve been so successful in achieving this is by seeking to be the most customer-focused company in the county. That’s correct, the most customer-focused company – not just in the IT industry – but in every industry. We realise that working toward the same goals as our clients is vital to delivering results. Therefore, we make it as easy as possible to connect to one of our technicians in order to resolve any problems regarding your IT systems.

Every minute that your systems are down your company loses money. For example, a company with a turnover of £1 Million that has just 10 employees is set to lose £30,000 – £50,000 if their server goes down for just two days. As well as lost productivity affecting your ability to achieve your expected turnover, IT support costs and hardware and the data recovery cost all add up too. At IT Champion IT Support Barnstaple we have made it our top priority to ensure that problems like this do not happen. Through our advanced remote 24hr Proactive Network Monitoring, unique to IT Champion IT Support Barnstaple, we are able to mitigate all potential risks, carry out repairs and resolve critical technical support issues before they become a major problem. This is something other Barnstaple IT Support providers don’t offer and is just one of many reasons to choose IT Champion over the rest.

Email management

From queries to invoicing, email is an essential part of communication for today’s business. However, in recent years’ emails have become the perfect breeding ground for fraud, unsolicited advertisements and malicious network attacks. In 2013, over 60% of all emails sent were spam. Our remote Barnstaple support team understand the devastating effects that opening one malicious email can have on your company’s IT systems. That’s why we’re proud to offer IT Champion Email Management – a complete system solution that will protect your business against email security and data issues.

IT Champion also offer complete anti-spam and anti-virus protection as part of our managed IT services; meaning you’ll no longer have to filter through reams of unwanted emails. With our automatic updates, you’ll receive 24/7 Aanti-spam accuracy and reporting, as well as a complete email continuity solution. If your mail server goes offline due to an internet outage or simple server restart, our Email Management systems will store them in a secure data centre, so you’ll never lose an email again.

IT Champion’s combination of fast response times, highly trained engineers and focused customer service make us Barnstaple’s leading IT support company.
