Frequently Asked Questions About Server Support
Proactive server support combines a suite of services into a single package that bolsters a client’s IT needs. Typically, a proactive program includes remote monitoring, preventative maintenance, and other services that reduce the negative business impact of technology failures. By minimising both the occurrences and duration of failures, our customers will benefit from a reliable and stable network.Reactive support results in unpredictable outages, IT expenses and increased management effort.
IT providers who support IT systems on an adhoc basis are not incentivised to resolve issues as quickly as possible and they bill for every hour they are onsite resolving issues. In essence the customer ends up paying for downtime.
Let’s examine a real-life scenario of a File server failure at a 20-user law firm
- For eight hours employees do not have access to their client records, forms, document assembly and case management resources
- The firm’s partners and associates have a typical average utilisation rate of 70% (billable time)
- During the course of this failure, they can only work at 30% of the normal level of productivity
- Service provider begins remediation two hours after failure
Legal partners (4) bill themselves out at R3650/hr.
- Utilisation rate = 70% so effective billing rate is R2555/hr
Associates (10) bill themselves out at R2050/hr
- Effective billing rate = R1435/hr
Downtime Incident Cost Calculations:
- 6 hrs of technician time to fix the server: R6000 (4%)
- 4 partners lost billing at 30% utilisation: R57 232 (40%)
- 10 associates lost billing at 30% utilisation: R80 360 (56%)
- TOTAL COST OF DOWNTIME INCIDENT: R143 592 (100%)
