General FAQ

Do I need to register an account to use zdesk?

Not at all. You can use zdesk for full 24×7 support; there are no accounts, no contracts. However if you prefer to setup an account it will be faster to provide you ongoing support time and time again.

What is the level of support that zdesk provides?

zdesk is a first level support desk which can fix 90% of problems within the first hour.

Some issues may take longer or we simply may not be able to resolve at all; these instances are usually hardware issues which would require 2nd level support. If 2nd level support is required we can arrange that for you, depending on your location.

What can zdesk help with?

  • PC/Mac Operating software
  • Office 365
  • Email
  • Browser issues
  • Antivirus

Are there any concerns about connecting remotely to my PC?

You have nothing to worry about, we are professionals. You remain in complete control of the remote session and can close at anytime if you choose. You can chat via the chat window to ask the technician any questions.

We have 5 staff in the office and they all need support, can zdesk help?

Of course, we have plans for individuals and groups. If needed we can assign multiple technicians for larger projects.

What are the benefits of the monthly maintenance service?

just like a mechanic services your car, this service is designed as a proactive measure. Quite often people run their PC’s into the ground till they crash, often resulting in higher costs or reason to buy a new one. With our maintenance we will keep your PC running smoother longer.
