The remote engineers use LogMeIn and TeamViewer to connect to your computer and use it as if they were in your office. This never happens without your permission.

In the unlikely event that your issue cannot be resolved by our team, we will contact the vendor of your software / hardware and work with them to quickly bring your case to a resolution. We are a Microsoft Silver Partner, which gives us fast access to the best technical team for all things Microsoft. Our close ties with Dell and HP technical support ensure that your computer can be looked at quickly by their field engineers if necessary.
Should you wish to escalate your case further, or if you have a complaint, our office manager is here to assist and ensure that you are satisfied.
Be advised that your complaints are treated confidentially and seen only by our management. However, should you wish to send an anonymous complaint, you can submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
