Vendor management requires both soft skills and a strong foundation of technical knowledge in order to be successful. Here at Contigo, we have both of these necessary components to keep your vendors’ services in check. In order to keep things running smoothly and managed properly, communication is key. When it comes to Austin IT support, it is best to continuously engage with technology vendors to fix issues more efficiently. Our services include working with vendors to ensure upgrades are installed as needed and to identify and solve application glitches. We also communicate with your Internet Service Provider to isolate any outage issues and remedy them in a timely manner.

Technology failure can develop excessive downtime and create stressful situations. It can even affect your reputation, which can negatively impact future sales. Don’t put yourself in that position. Let us do the leg work for your business by contacting us today.

 

Upgrades

Software upgrades are important because they often include security patches that work to prevent any breaches where security holes may have previously existed. In addition, keeping all of your applications properly updated can improve the stability of your software and can even remove outdated features, all of which contribute to a better user experience. We will work with vendors to ensure application upgrades are scoped and completed responsibly so that you can rest easy at night knowing that your business has done everything in its power to prevent potentially sensitive data from getting into unauthorized hands. This can help you to maintain a great reputation with your clients while also preventing bad user experiences and devastating breaches.

ISP Outages

When it comes to ISP outages, there is a lot at stake. The costs related to these outages can impact everything from your operations to your organization’s reputation. This can be devastating for any organization, so outages need to be properly managed and quickly remedied. Nobody likes dealing with unplanned hiccups, but this seems to be a common occurrence. When it does happen, we will work with your ISP to isolate the problem and remedy the outage as promptly as possible.

Application Glitches

Catching and fixing application glitches early on can prevent unwanted headaches later. A product full of bugs can tarnish your business’s reputation. Presenting your products or services to end users without double checking that all of the glitches have been worked out can negatively impact the user experience that you had originally wanted, creating a sense of frustration for the end user. This can all lead to a decrease in sales or less confidence in your future products, neither of which are desirable outcomes. In addition, bugs have a tendency to multiply, meaning that they can get out of hand rather quickly. Unfortunately, the more bugs that exist in your software, the harder it is to pinpoint the source of the problem. This translates to excess time spent just on tracking down the cause of the bug, which means time is being wasted – and we all know that time is money. This is why keeping any application glitches at bay is so important. Sometimes a second set of eyes and stellar service is all you need to ensure that there are minimal errors within your applications. Here at Contigo, we offer just that. We will work with end users to identify application bugs and open support tickets with the vendor to find a solution that works best for your organization. We handle the IT issues so that you can focus on fine-tuning your business’s products and services to better serve your customers.
