This support is focused around our Service Desk where all calls and emails are logged and tracked using our Service Desk tools, processes and procedures and the C5 standard Service Priorities . The Service Desk will manage the resolution of support tickets and also manage escalations, both functional and hierarchal, and on-site support can be provided where required.

Incident lifecycle management

Our service desk team solve an average of 82% of all incidents on first assignment. For the remaining 18% we have an ITIL compliant, SLA backed process to ensure an appropriate response to the incident, depending on its severity, with a clear procedure to escalate our response when required.

Problem management process

We follow a robust problem management process with the ultimate aim to identify actions we can take to prevent any recurrence of the problem once it has been resolved.

We document any known errors through to resolution, ensuring your team are kept aware of progress and where necessary suitably trained to deal with future issues.

If C5 identifies that a change is necessary to prevent future problems, then a request is raised in accordance with a pre-agreed change management process.

Change management process

C5 can manage and resolve changes following a predefined process to allow effective and efficient changes to IT services but with minimal risks and Service disruption.
Depending on the IT maturity of your organisation, we are able to either work within your change advisory governance framework or provide this as a service to your organisation.
