Frequently Asked Questions
We offer direct, quick, and personalized helpdesk as well as onsite support to users.
We assign a team of 5 to 7 helpdesk technicians to a client. This way users always speak to the same group of technicians who know their environment. Our technicians will answer all calls from users directly from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday. Over 80% of calls are answered within 2 minutes. We also have a 24/7 emergency support where users will receive a callback from a technician within 30 minutes.
Users can also email our support via an email address configured on their domain, for example: firstname.lastname@example.org. Users can also book a support appointment online with a technician for less urgent issues.
We also offer onsite support. It ranges from going onsite when it’s needed to resolve an issue to going onsite a couple times a month, to a couple times a week, and even full time in some cases. We are very flexible with this and adjust to our clients changing needs pretty much on the fly.
We constantly improve our service from feedback we get from users. We have a survey included with every intervention making it easy for users to give us their valuable feedback. Our service managers will plan a call with any user that had a negative experience. The goal is to first apologize, and then to understand what happened so we can ensure it does not reoccur. We also conduct an annual survey to all users to track the progression of user satisfaction.
We regularly review user incidents to identify and fix recurring issues.
We are not perfect, and unfortunately, we do make mistakes. But we are absolutely committed to constantly improve our service and give the best experience for all our users!
Users calling outside of helpdesk hours (7am to 7pm Monday to Friday) will be invited to leave a message for an emergency. They will get a call back within 15 to 30 minutes.

Our typical client is an SMB with a head office in the greater Montreal area. Many of our clients also have other offices throughout Canada and the US. A good proportion of them have hybrid office models and some work entirely from home.
Our clients take the security of their data and the productivity of their people very seriously. They want to ensure that their IT enables them to meet their business goals and does not hold them back.
Our clients are from different industries. 60% are professional service firms and the other 40% are in distribution or manufacturing.
Our clients are in the Microsoft ecosystem. They mostly use Windows, Office 365, Azure. The majority have a mix of cloud and on-premise infrastructure. The others have a purely cloud infrastructure.
Most clients have no full-time IT people. Some have a small IT team that are focused on their line of business applications.
Clients usually find us when they outgrow their IT provider, or they lose an internal resource and decide they do not want to manage IT people anymore.
