During my working life I, (like many of you out there,) have felt the need to throw the computer across the room. There are moments when it just doesn’t appreciate that you are working to a deadline. Constantly crashing is not helping the stress levels to get that all important report of the year to date Sales figures to your Director, for a major board meeting. (Normally when you have only been given an hour’s notice). Or you have had a last minute order come through at 16.45 to be delivered before 9am the next day. How does your business cope in these highly stressed occasions? Do you have IT Support that you can contact? Are you safe in the knowledge that the person on the end of the phone cares or that is listening to the fact you are about to have a breakdown and slowly reaching the end of a truly bad day?
I have worked at various businesses over the years, ranging from a small company of just 5 members of staff and no IT support, to large global corporate organisations that have an in-house help desk. I have experience on both ends of the scale. I am now a homeworker and my desk is in my spare room in Berkshire, whilst my office and colleagues are based in Ashford, Kent. I think it’s safe to say I am quite knowledgeable on how important it is to have IT Support I can rely on. Without having access to support I simply cannot get my work done when things go wrong. Yes I do now work for an IT Support company so you might think – well what does she have to worry about? I can assure you that when you are 2 hour’s drive from the office it can be stressful as you have no access to any other PC to get that report or order completed. The team at MPR IT are dedicated to solving the issue no differently for me than they would for a paying customer. Just last week I spoke to the help desk as my laptop was not syncing with my Office 365 account and I was concerned if the laptop went up in flames all my work would be lost. Queue moment of panic and fear – how would I explain to the team I couldn’t create a report or carry out my marketing tasks. Within 30 minutes, with the use of Remote log in the issue was resolved and my stress levels returned to normal.
