Preventative Support - 96% of Faults Fixed Remotely

Our combination of proactive monitoring, process automation and jeopardy management means that we only send an engineer to site 4% of the time, compared to 22% where customers are supported on a reactive, break-fix basis.

 

Unique Processes – Traditional Escalation vs. Jeopardy Management

Our long experience in managing global networks has led us to take a unique view of managing the inevitable issues that arise within any Communications estate.

Most companies will employ an escalation based service process where once an SLA has been breached, escalation begins. Connect’s view is that this is too late to escalate – the SLA has already been breached.

 

Jeopardy Management

Connect’s unique jeopardy management process, breaks up the SLA into key milestones. For example, within 15 minutes we will have diagnosed the fault and within one hour, we will either have fixed the fault remotely, or dispatched an appropriately skilled engineer with the correct part. We escalate if any milestone is breached, which in turn puts the SLA in jeopardy of being breached. We have seen SLA improvements of 25% using this methodology, which is illustrated below:

  • Jeopardy Management - We escalate on approaching a set milestone within an SLA - Not a breach of SLA
  • Alarm Management - Automated diagnosis of system alarms that are filtered, prioritised to our ticketing system
  • 24/7 Online Reporting – Connect offers an online portal for our Managed Services customers – providing a 24/7 view of network status, ticket information and service activity

 

Current SLA Levels

Using our latest Alarm Monitoring technology and our Unique Jeopardy Management processes we are currently achieving almost 99% SLA achievement for our Managed Service customers.
