Optimised Managed Services - How it works:
Stage 1: Assessment
We start by assessing what equipment you have, how it’s being used and by whom. We work with your staff to understand their individual and team needs, then compile our findings into an early report.
Stage 2: Solution Design
The Stage 1 Report, which includes a full cost and usage analysis by device and workgroup mapped against accurate floor plans, reveals the weak spots and where quick wins can be made. You’ll see which machines are inappropriately placed and where to redeploy them to optimise your fleet.
Stage 3: Transition and Project Management
In order to facilitate and co-ordinate the implementation of the MPS process, Sharp will assign a PRINCE2 Project Manager to lead a project team who will take responsibility and accountability for the MPS rollout, and will work closely with the client throughout the process.
Stage 4: Ongoing Contract Management
This stage revolves around seeking continual improvement.
Once the new infrastructure is implemented we will continue to monitor it, checking the improvements in costs and productivity against the original plan on a regular basis.
Sharp Optimised IT Services
Technology presents risks as well as opportunities. Sharp are here to help you make all the right choices
Sharp’s Optimised IT Services give you everything you need to build and maintain a reliable, resilient IT infrastructure that’s fit for the future. Here’s why.
Your entire organisation and everyone in it depends on IT. Technology supports your HR, accounts, contracts, customer records, document archives, your web site, your email – everything.
But technology doesn’t stand still. And business needs change over time. So in our experience most IT environments are a mishmash of aging legacy equipment mixed with a sprinkling of the latest and greatest.
