Our client first contacted us as their server had a failure. Our assessment team quickly identified the problem and resolved the issue. Whilst we were looking at the server we identified several other areas of concern, which would have caused further disruption or even data loss so advised that we should have a more detailed look at the server and backup.
LAN Support attend site a few days later and completed a free full site survey and later provided several options and recommendations on what they should and should not be doing.
After a short consultation period, LAN Support were chosen to provide the services in one of the recommendations provided and presented a support contract to support their users.
