|Long description||With this service, we combine the best of both sides: Microsoft, as a vendor, provides managed support with a fee for the services they sell through us, IT partner. And we (IT partner) provide a free Break/Fix support service to pre-solve any problems that Microsoft did not solve early.|
What is Break/Fix?
Break/fix is a method of providing IT support to customers. With this model, the client asks for support from their service provider when a problem arises, and the service provider solves these issues with a fee for time or other resources spent.
But we are also ready to offer this kind of support for free if the client purchases Microsoft subscriptions with our help, as a partner.
Break/Fix vs. Managed Services
Break/fix is different from managed services, a model in which a company that provides IT services takes responsibility for customer IT systems, providing monitoring, management, and continuity of services.
In the break/fix model, the IT company is involved in resolving issues only if the client requests support.
MSP takes a proactive approach to prevent the manifestation of the problem.

- Resolving issues related to Office 365 services in case of malfunction or incorrect work
