  • “ALL” work regardless should come via instruction from SupportCALL or our clients HQ contact and should normally be noted on the ticket by the instructing person or company.
  • remember, the end-user would want everything (top of the range printers, computers, 5x monitors…), but our client HQ has budgets, set ways they want their network and most important, our instructions and the payment of our account comes from our clients HQ. So what HQ says rather than end-user.
  • We do relay end-user requests and issues to our clients HQ via the Ticket System and the decision or resolve action (if any) does come from instruction from our clients HQ, not the end-user.
  • this said, we must always do our utmost best to keep the end-user happy because people find it easier to report negative things rather than positive, remember if the end-user is happy they work harder and deliver better work for our client.


Please remember…
