WHY DID CANDLELIGHT CARE COME TO US?

Candlelight Care's work is crucial to their clients and must be of the highest quality to continue to meet and exceed industry regulations. With teams and clients across multiple locations, their IT systems are essential as a centralised point for storing highly-sensitive data, sharing team information and monitoring clients' care packages.

Previously, Candlelight Care worked with another company with no complaints. After a change of management, their IT provider shifted their business away from managed IT services. Candlelight Care needed to find the same level of efficiency, responsiveness and customer service elsewhere. On a recommendation from a personal acquaintance (and our employee) Candlelight Care approached us.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We provide Candlelight Care with a responsive and friendly outsourced support desk that is tailored to their business and budget.

When a problem arises, our SLA is immediately or even sooner. Once Candlelight Care logs a ticket or needs our advice, we are immediately on hand to help. If we can't solve the issue remotely, we send one of our engineers out to fix the dilemma onsite.
