Our Managed Services act as an extension to your in-house IT team

IT teams are under a lot of pressure by the demands of users and customers who expect the best performance of their systems at all times. However, limited resources and budgets can often hinder the delivery of service at this level. To help social housing organisations face these challenges, we offer a range of managed and hosted services to help free up your IT team, while we take care of the day-to-day items. Our services cover a wide range of areas including real-time monitoring, planned maintenance, out of hours cover, daily system checks, upgrades, application support, continuous protection with scalable hosted backup & disaster recovery and more. Our qualified, experienced team will assist in everything from audit, design, build, migration, and management of workloads and applications to and in the cloud so that you can focus on improving your customer journey.

Advantages

  • Set your users free from their desks with our Remote Desktop Servers which let them connect into their session from anywhere.

  • We can ensure you get the best network setup to meet the demands by users who expect fast speed connections.

  • If you are looking to change the way your organisation operates, our IT transformation service can help regardless of the size of your IT budget.

  • Our team can help you upgrade or implement new software should your old provider be coming to the end of its life.

  • We offer a single point of contact with our team of experts in the social housing industry, meaning you are free to focus on your strategic IT planning.

  • As a leading managed service provider, we guarantee that all of the services provided are fully compliant with GDPR regulations.

Entering into a Managed Services agreement combined with hosting has proven to be a transformational change and I recommend that every Orchard customer should give serious consideration to making it an integral part of their implementation.
