This offering can be hosted in-house at the client’s facility and staffed by ProV’s crack IT support team based on the client’s requirements. It can also be hosted in ProV’s data center with dedicated hardware reserved strictly for one client’s IT computing and support needs.

This offering is supported by ProV’s global data centers that use a shared, multitenant infrastructure secured with virtual private networks (VPNs) and SSO and SAML-capable ServiceNow instances. The geodiversity of these datacenters helps ensure stable, consistent access to IT resources across the globe.

 

Both of these offerings are available with specific SLA support levels based on a yearly subscription featuring flexible billing schedules (monthly or quarterly).

Additionally, these offerings boast unlimited client support hours so you can have 24/7 coverage 365 days a year. This support includes things as simple as call logging with first-time resolution through Help Desk, as well as full management of ServiceNow issues and escalations.

Managed It Solutions Explained

Transitioning into Managed IT Services

ProV helps enterprises transition into managed IT services using a comprehensive, step-by-step process:

1. Support Transition Phase. 

In this step of the process, ProV acquires an understanding of the client’s existing IT infrastructure and services by:

  1. Defining support objectives and goals
  2. Determining key success factors
  3. Setting timescales and milestones
  4. Confirming roles and responsibilities
  5. Identifying and creating reporting metrics
  6. Establishing a managed services support plan and sign-off

2. Support Transformation Phase. 

In this phase, ProV onboards the managed IT services team, creates schedules for support tasks, sets up connectivity interfaces, test runs the chosen support model, establishes QA acceptance, and performs knowledge transfer.

3. Steady State. 

In this step, QA testing/review is completed, and the hand-off of IT management from the client to ProV begin

This formula for transferring key IT responsibilities helps ensure the smooth transition of clients from using internal IT support to using managed IT services.
