Period of Engagement
At WOTLink we know that the combination of service levels from leading applications (like Office365 etc) and our configuration services, provide clients with unprecedented cost savings and brilliant business outcomes.
Year on year, you can expect to save in the order of 50% to 80% in IT costs compared to traditional in-house support or “do and charge” IT support.
At our regular meetings we are providing IT health checks and tracking performance for you to ensure optimal business continuity.
A client should never feel “locked in” to a contract or pay hefty cancellation fees.
After 90 days, if you want to change or move your IT support arrangements simply give us a month’s notice. Your subscriptions, apps and data are yours from day one, so you always have the ongoing ownership and control.
Our job and incentive is to always provide our products and services with openness and integrity, deliver optimal business outcomes using best of breed technology, and provide value for money. We think that’s how business should be.
We do provide pro-bono work (at our discretion) if undertaking additional research, so that you are not unfairly burdened or frustrated by “cutting edge technology”.
