Typical IT call
[telephone rings]
[male voice]“You’ve reached tech support, Andy speaking”.
[female voice]“Hi Andy, this is Betty from Page & Plant, P.A.”
[male voice]“Hi Betty, what can I do for you today?”
[female voice] “Mr. Page can’t seem to send or receive email. I’ve checked all I can but I don’t know what’s wrong.”
[male voice] “Hmmm... Well, I don’t have anyone available right now, but I just looked at our maintenance schedule, we’re booked to be out there next Thursday, do you want our technicians to look at it then?”
[female voice] “Um, unfortunately, Mr. Page is preparing for a trial that starts tomorrow and he’s waiting on some very important emails. Is there any way you can send someone to fix it this any sooner?”
[male voice] “I might be able to get someone out there tomorrow, but we have two emergencies we’re working on now and I’m not quite sure how long it will take us to resolve them. Once we resolve those, we can come out immediately.”
[female voice] “And there is nothing you can do to fix the problem now?”
[male voice] “I’m sorry, Betty. I just handle incoming service calls, I’m not a technician.”
[female voice] “Oh, I see... Will tomorrow’s service call be a billable event?”
[male voice] “Yeah, that’ll be our normal rate of a hundred and fifty dollars per hour, with a two hour minimum plus a fifty dollar travel fee.”
[female voice] “Okay, thanks Andy.”
[male voice] “No problem, Betty. Have a nice day.” [phone receiver click]

[male narrator voice] Does this sound frustratingly familiar? Your IT support company might be friendly...even knowledgeable, but their response times and business practices often leave much to be desired. Then, when they do arrive, you’re going to pay hundreds of dollars per hour for them to hunt around, find, and hopefully solve the problem, and many times they’ll require two or more on-site visits to finally fix an issue. The biggest problem with this approach is that unpredictable and inconvenient IT problems inevitably lead to unpredictable and inconvenient IT downtime...and bills. What if there was a better way?

[telephone rings]
[female voice] “*****************************, this is Michelle speaking, how can I help you today?”
[male voice] “Hey Michelle, this is Tom calling from Southern Engineering”
[female voice] “Hi Tom, are you calling about your email server?”
[male voice] “Yeah, we’re not getting any of our email.”
[female voice] “Yes, we got an alert about that a few minutes ago and we’ve just found the problem. It looks like someone accidentally stored a really big file on your email server. We’ve moved it to another drive for you and blocked that user from file access to the server. We’re just restarting your email server processes now.”
[male voice] “Hmm... Will that bring the email back up? That sounds too easy.”
[female voice] “It should, but we’ll double-check. Can you hold on a moment? I just want to make sure everything started normally and that your email is running again.”
[male voice] “Sure. No problem.”
[female voice] “Alright, I’ve just sent you a test email. Please let me know when you get it.”
[male voice] “Okay [email received sound]. There it is, wow that was fast.”
[female voice] “You should be all set now. If you notice anything else, just give us a call.”
[male voice] “Great, thanks so much Michelle.”
[female voice] “Happy to help Tom, enjoy the rest of your day.”
[male voice] “I, you too.”
[female voice] “Thank you for calling SLPowers!” [phone receiver click]

[male narrator voice] The average IT support ticket is open for three days. That’s three days not being able to send email, three days without printing, or three days with a “workaround” for a critical application. At ********, we offer a better solution. Our average time to resolution for our Guaranteed Networks clients is sixty minutes, the equivalent of a lunch break. Compare that with your current solution and it becomes obvious which alternative will keep you up and running and help you to achieve the greatest success.

Guaranteed Netoworks’ Purpose
[male narrator voice] Most IT service providers make their money when you have network trouble. The more trouble you have, the more they get to bill you by the hour. Is there any incentive for your break/fix network provider to go the extra mile to prevent network downtime? There is not. Remember, the more IT related pain you feel, the more money they make.

Guaranteed Networks, from ********, turns that traditional model around. By billing you an affordable flat monthly fee, we’ve aligned our interests with your goals. Now, when you have network troubles, it costs us, not are paying for things to work, not when they break.
Under this scenario, we are most profitable on our customers that experience the fewest problems.

******** has transformed the traditional IT break fix role from what amounts to spending most of our time working on reactive IT emergencies, to proactive preventative maintenance which assures that most of these problems are detected and eliminated before causing issues.

The success of Guaranteed Networks relies on our 3 part process. First we analyze your network to discover any systemic problems that may exist. Next, we address these issues in what we call the GN compliance stage. Finally, we proactively manage and/or maintain your network by monitoring key health indicators and responding with industry best practices and our own internally developed methodologies. Unlike some IT providers who generally schedule weekly or monthly maintenance visits, we’re looking at your network about every five minutes, three hundred and sixty five days a year.

Benefits-Productivity and Fixed Budgets
[male narrator voice]When an IT provider’s profitability depends on your lack of profitability, it’s time to rethink the basic equation. We believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The success behind the Guaranteed Networks suite of services is based on that premise. Monitoring and proactive management is at the core Guaranteed Networks.

Let’s take a brief moment to understand the effect of emergency network issues beyond the obvious spikes in IT bills. In the traditional model, you have to wait for something to break, and then wait even longer for it to be fixed.

Lets say you have 50 salaried employees in your office at an average cost of $50 an hour. If your server goes down, even just once a month, and it takes 4 hours to get it back up and running, have you considered the extra $120,000 a year in lost productivity to your bottom line? That is above and beyond whatever you are spending on IT repairs. That’s an astounding loss that cannot be recouped. And it doesn’t consider the lost sales opportunities and loss of customer trust or goodwill caused by the outage.

What about issues that don’t cause servers to go down but cause sporadic problems with one or two applications? If your 50 employees waste just 15 minutes out of a day (or two minutes an hour) because they have to wait for an application to come up or because their computers take too long to reboot, that cost equates to another $625 per day in lost productivity. On an annual basis, this $625 per day equates to another $156,000 per year! Does a pay-as-you-need-us network break/fix program make sense, now that you understand the true cost?

Choosing ***************************** is a true investment in your company’s productivity. You’ll improve your bottom line, not only by giving back hours of lost productivity, you’ll know in advance exactly how much you are going to spend on IT maintenance and support throughout the year.

Service Plans
[narrator]We understand that every company is unique and Guaranteed Networks offers several offerings designed to meet your needs and your budget. Whether you’re looking to fulfill the total IT support needs of a small business or enhance the existing IT staff of a larger organization, we have a plan that is right for your business. Our offerings range from simple preventative maintenance for desktops or laptops to fully managed servers and infrastructure plans, to hosted processing environments featuring on-demand computing and virtualization solutions.

And every Guaranteed Networks plan comes with 24 / 7 monitoring, proactive maintenance, access to our support desk, our online service portal, and our professional engineering team with onsite support available throughout most of the US, all for a fixed monthly fee. It’s like having your own IT department at a fraction of the cost.
