Thinking of switching IT providers?

Q1 - What if I don’t have a managed support plan with Linten?

No worries at all! Many of our valued customers appreciate the simplicity and convenience of our managed support services. We’d be more than happy to provide a quote based on the estimated time needed to resolve your concerns. This quote will encompass both our service time and any necessary travel if our engineer needs to visit you.

Our policy entails a minimum charge of 1 hour, whether it’s for remote assistance or in-person support. We bill in whole hour increments to keep things clear and straightforward. Should the resolution require more time than initially anticipated, we’ll communicate and adjust the charge accordingly to ensure fairness and avoid any unexpected fees.

At our core, we believe in transparency and fairness. We don’t retroactively invoice clients for unplanned support; our agreements are clear from the outset. Your approval is essential before we commence any work, as we strive for a cooperative and understanding partnership.

Q2 - How quickly can you resolve my issue?

Our speed in delivering an initial response and aiming to resolve the issue depends on the priority assigned. A ticket marked with a higher priority will have a quicker response compared to one with a lower priority.

Q3 - How quickly will you process my order?

We operate SLAs (service level agreements) once a customer has approved a quote for our services. These SLAs are to manage your expectations once we begin processing your order, depending on the type of order type.

Q4 - How do I escalate my issue if I am dissatisfied with the experience I have received?

We operate an escalations matrix for customers. Details of the escalation matrix can be found within your Welcome Pack or requested from your Client Relationship Manager.
