Break-Fix, or the traditional method by which most IT Service Providers have provided technology support assistance in the past is still very prevalent today. This method, also known as time and material or T&M is often referred to as “failed technology, either hardware or software, that requires outside support services/personnel to help restore current functionality or working order of the failed service or device”. Break-Fix generally requires the “supported customer” pay for any hardware repairs that may be required as well as a pre-negotiated labor rates for service.
As businesses rely more and more on emerging technologies, it is now more important than ever to keep your network up and running. When a network fails, it can be felt in numerous ways across an entire organization. The ability to communicate with customers may be hampered or lost as phone services fail and email systems crash. Production may grind to a halt as manufacturing control systems go offline and revenue streams instantly vanish as websites and other order taking systems become unavailable. Each passing moment of downtime represents a missed opportunity and lost revenue. At that moment, nothing is more important than getting your systems back online... enter The Go2IT Group.

Remote diagnostics and repair is a method for troubleshooting software related problems via a remote desktop connection or VPN. Technicians use remote desktop software to allow direct access to a user's desktop or company server via the Internet. With the user's permission, the technician can take control of the user's keyboard and mouse to run diagnostics, review configuration settings or even transfer files directly from The Go2IT Group Network Operations Center. When appropriate, Go2IT engineers are also dispatched to the customer site to deal with more serious issues involving defective or failed hardware when remote connectivity is not a viable option.
