Remote IT Support

Token Based Support Services (TBSS)

Support services when you need them.
Pay for what you use.

For clients who do not require a full-time managed services contract, Q Associates has developed a simple token based support service designed to be consumed and charged in flexible time slots, covering services outside the scope of traditional maintenance support contracts.

This enables the client to expedite topping up their own or vendor skills and resources. The full range of skills can be delivered in 30 minute timeslots.

Because we are not scheduling full days with the corresponding draw on resources, it’s a very efficient and effective way to get access to bespoke services, skills and knowledge base as and when you require them.

  • Purchase support tokens in advance. No need to raise a PO when you need help.
  • Use tokens to buy technical support when you need it. Tokens can be consumed in 30 minute blocks, using only what you need from your TBSS credit balance.
  • Customers with Support Tokens can register support requests with our Service Desk via email. A unique tracking reference will be issued to enable tracking of requests and resolution.
