13 Health check Not all engineers or maintainers keep up to date with the latest technology and methodologies for transition. A case in point is virtualisation and cluster integration. It is vital that the latest methodologies are followed otherwise errors occur and transitions in the future become very difficult. It is possible to mask errors, so your system appears healthy on first glance, but deeper insight shows that the system can often be under performing. Often a clustered environment that has been installed incorrectly only shows up when one of the resilient elements fails, and by then it is too late. Post rectification can be very time consuming and could result in a considerable engineering cost. Systems in a cluster talk to each other and need to be installed and decommissioned properly as once an element has been physically removed it cannot be deleted completely from the programming. A health check done before a maintenance contract is taken on ensures that we have carried out due diligence and the customer is fully aware of any limitations which can then be built into the account development plan. We work in partnership with our customers, for example inviting them to participate in learning how to configure their systems, thereby increasing their knowledge. There is a mutual respect between customer and engineer and in many organisations our engineers are treated as part of the team. Personalised service Working with Britannic has been a really positive experience. We get personalised service, quick turnaround, continuity of engineers and easy access to the team at Britannic. They are proactive, helpful and highly experienced which are essential elements we look for in a partner. Britannic s skill is in integrating multivendor systems with our new Avaya solution and providing seamless migrations to our new Productions. Britannic are ahead of the curve in their knowledge and experience. We value their involvement in our strategic ICT development. Phone

Selecting a fully hosted managed solution from Britannic reduces costs and can be integrated into existing systems enabling your organisation to develop a bespoke strategy that works to meet your business goals, whilst leveraging your existing investment in Avaya.
