secure - because our remote support software is protected with 128-bit end-to-end data encryption, remote desktop support is just as secure as if we were sitting in front of your PC. For your added security we are registered with the Information Commissioners Office for data protection (reg no Z2857235) and you can sit and watch everything we do so you know that no-one has looked at your personal information, and as a further security measure, all our remote sessions are now recorded on the providers system.
guaranteed - all our remote services are guaranteed for 30 days and you have the security of knowing that if we can't fix it, you don't pay
value for money - our services is priced for simplicity. £10 for every 15 minutes support, or part of, with any full unused support blocks remaining valid for a full 12 months from purchase so you can use them in the future.
Unless you are a business contract customer with unattended support installed, the support programme will automatically remove itself as soon as we, or you terminate the support session. If you are in any doubt, just re-boot your system so you can be sure
.: how much does it cost?
Before we start work we will have given you an estimate and only in rare cases will we need to charge over our estimated price; if we find a lot more things wrong, the support request is incorrect or you ask us to do more than the original support ticket requested.
Remote support is charged in 15 minute blocks at £10 per 15 minutes or part of.
Most remote sessions are between 15 - 45 minutes.
The remote software automatically logs the support session start & finish times and uses one of your blocks every 15 minutes. So if a support session starts at 9.00 and finishes at 9.16, for example, it will use 2 whole blocks of time.
The minimum purchase is 4 blocks of 15 minute support for £40. Buying more blocks at the same time gives you better value for money! Buy them here
all whole unused blocks are valid for 12 months so you have the safety of support at any-time in the future.
We never charge for more than 2 hours of remote support - if we think it will take longer than this we will suggest a different repair method. If the repair session actually takes us longer than 2 hours the clock will stop and you will not be charged more.
You can check your account at anytime to see how much you have left in your account.
