Help Desk Technical Support Programs, Pricing & Policies

Complimentary Phone Support for all Small Business Customers - Give us a try
We’d love to hear from you, so as a courtesy to any small business or organization,  the first 5 minutes of any call is not charged.  Its a way for us to get to know you and you to try us out.   To make the best use of your support call, its helpful to have as much information as possible available to the technician on the phone. Many problems can be solved very quickly with the right information. If an error message occurs, write down the exact message and any code shown with the message. Record what you were doing (i.e. the software program and the function within that program) when the error occurred.  It is also recommended that you record the steps used by the technician to resolve the issue so you will have them for future reference. After your first five minutes if the issue isn’t resolved, you can decide if you’d like to move forward with phone or onsite support - your call.

Your Business IT Services Partner -  liveconnect: The Launch Pad Difference

Liveconnect™ An Extension of Your Current Support Resources
liveconnect-tagOur liveconnect IT Solutions series for small business is designed to offer you a flexible level of technical support as needed to keep your company running smoothly.  For organizations currently represented by outside consultants or an in-house maintenance staff, we know IT crises may spring up when local support personnel are unavailable or the issue is beyond the scope of your local service technicians. In these cases, The Launch Pad's onsite and online support experts give you an easy, fast, and economical way to augment your local help and to transfer useful knowledge to improve your ability to resolve future problems locally. Or, you can put your organization fully in our hands and let us become your virtual IT department insuring all of your technology and web needs are completely taken care of.

With our liveconnect programs you’ll be able to:

Reduce Dependence on Freelance Consultants for Information Technology Services
For small business IT consulting, web services, repair and support, smaller organizations commonly depend on individual freelance consultants. While freelance service people may be able to charge less, they are often overbooked and lacking technical resources, making it difficult to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent small business IT consultant is unavailable, the absence of reserve help may force your company to go without assistance during an emergency. As your company expands, system unavailability and trouble with critical software become even more costly. The budget you thought you were conserving on an independent can be consumed quickly by lost productivity. The Launch Pad provides an on-call source of reserve service experts to make sure your IT system is always up and running.

Create a Scalable Foundation for Smooth Expansion
New organizations typically begin with a business information technology services system implemented on a shoestring budget. Without a scalable framework, shoddy fixes often get thrown on top of an unstable foundation. As a company grows, reliability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the business. These badly built systems need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and wide IT knowledge to evolve to a network infrastructure that can offer the solid foundation to handle current business requirements and ease future growth.

Use A Solution Provider in Strong Partnerships with Major Technology Vendors
Small organizations need guidance and technical education to navigate through an ever mmcpore complex array of technology alternatives available for accelerating business success and enhancing efficiency. Network consulting and specialized product expertise can result technology choices that meet the true needs of a small business backed by strong relationships with authorized vendor partnerships. This Launch Pad maintains authorized reseller and certifications status with most major manufacturers including Apple, Acer, Sony, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft and many others.  This allow us to align IT expertise with the real needs of clients backed by strong support channels and product education.

Keeping your business information technology services running smoothly is what we specialize in.
