MEET OUR IT TEAM TODAY
Information Technology Support
Sadly, not all of our brains are hard-wired to understand all of that technology stuff that we use on a daily basis and here at Global, this is something that we are very aware of.
So we searched high and low and found some of the finest ‘IT Whizzes’ out there. We gave them an office and a desk complete with computer, and with that our full time IT Development, Operations and Help Desk department was born.
Based at Head Office, our IT department includes a team of maintenance engineers at your disposal to provide fault resolution, with a door to door, hassle free, next day delivery service for any IT related problems you may encounter.
How’s that for service?
Their aim is to enhance your productivity, provide an impressive suite of IT services, trackable customer support and most importantly, fix that thing that keeps beeping.
Some of the benefits include:
- Package of tailored IT services
- End-to-end remote tech support
- Guaranteed fixes/replacements (for stuff that beeps)
