Other Resources and IT help

Last updated: August 29, 2022

By design, the Managed Workstation service rate includes a very minimal amount of user support. Almost all user support is charged at our consulting rate, this keeps our monthly rate low and makes sure you only pay for the support that you need. We detail the boundaries for that here.

There are many other IT services available, and we can help you with them. If we provide more than basic assistance leveraging published documentation using less than a few minutes of time, then we do charge our consulting rate. In many cases, those other IT services have their own support which does not cost anything. We will make it clear when you have a non-billable option and give you a choice. If you do want to take the free option, we’ll happily route your request to the right service team. One benefit of paying us is that sometimes we can help you resolve your issue more quickly, but it is important to us that you know that you have a choice.

Below, you’ll find documentation we’ve written about other IT services that we don’t provide. In some cases, there is no service that provides these. In other cases, customers have asked us to write documentation that the service team doesn’t provide.
