Break-Fix is a service model that delivers IT support and service when there is a need for repairs and updates. It is ideal for companies with in-house IT support and infrastructure requiring additional or emergency solutions to unique problems, like hardware failure short-term projects to upgrade or improve an existing solution. The biggest benefit of break-fix is that you pay for the services rendered instead of a fixed monthly fee for ongoing managed services. BIS typically works based on the time-and-material concept, where we either charge hourly or a fixed project price + cost of parts.
Many organizations are opting for cloud computing and storing data in the cloud. But many companies still operate business applications that are using legacy equipment. However, supporting and maintaining legacy, (older equipment and hardware components) using manufacturer OEM support could be quite expensive. Most manufacturers offer ongoing annual support, which turns out to be costlier than purchasing a new system, as they have moved on with their new offerings.
Here’s where our Break-Fix services come into the picture – we, as a third-party service provider, deliver IT support and maintenance for a marginal cost. Based on your company location, we can respond to your call between 4 and 24 hours.
