Our Approach To Managed IT Support
At Qlic, our emphasis is on customer service before IT jargon. Our recruitment process focuses on hiring personable staff with a love of IT – we feel this makes our IT helpdesk more approachable and encourages your users to develop good relationships and trust with our managed IT support service desk. Rather than having auto-attendants, receptionists or voicemail systems, the telephone number provided to our clients goes directly to our managed IT support team. You will speak directly to a dedicated engineer to immediately diagnose the fault and, where possible, resolve this without the need for a call back or further escalation.
Dedicated Account Management
Your Dedicated Account Manager has previously worked on our helpdesk and projects teams, giving them a unique insight into the support, planning and implementation of your charity’s IT systems. Their focus is to reduce your reliance on the helpdesk services by assessing and developing the systems your staff use, leading to improved reliability and efficiency.

At Qlic, we take pride in our high customer retention as we maintain great customer relationships with our long-standing clients. Our managed IT support teams’ ability to resolve faults quickly and with the least possible down-time for our clients.

Our Onboarding Process
FULL SITE SURVEY & IT AUDIT
A full site survey of your IT hardware, software and services including consultation with yourselves and your staff. We detail your charity’s existing IT infrastructure and discuss any additional requirements and ongoing or outstanding problems. Our engineers will install our highly-secure remote management and monitoring tools, as well as our remote assistance services to allow us to quickly and easily provide support directly to your users’ devices. Whether you’re based in Kent or London, we’re on hand to help both small and large charities.
BEST PRACTICE ANALYSIS
Once we have collated all of the information from your site survey of your charity, your dedicated account manager will contact you to arrange your Best Practice Analysis. This is a detailed document comprising information on any areas of concern with your existing system as well as information on security, compliance and business continuity. We also identify any upcoming renewals or out-of-date solutions and provide information on forthcoming technologies and services that may benefit your charity.
PRO-ACTIVE REAL-TIME MONITORING
Pro-active real-time monitoring and reporting enables us to detect and resolve many support issues before they impact your charity. We monitor every server, device and cloud service using a multitude of industry-standard alerting, monitoring and reporting tools.
FACILITIES & UPDATE MANAGEMENT
All new, change and remove user requests are managed to ensure organisational compliance and detailed to provide change tracking and reporting. This also includes software update control, data backup, restoration, server maintenance (automated as well as manual) and administration.
THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE & HARDWARE VENDOR SUPPORT
Where authorised, we will liaise with all your third-party hardware, software, telecommunications and cloud service providers on your behalf. This gives you one point of contact for all IT related issues and requests, saving your staff time and the frustration of being pushed between service providers – allowing us to have a full audit trail for all services and supplier requests.
DEDICATED ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT
Your dedicated account manager will contact you periodically to arrange a meeting or a call to discuss various aspects of your agreement, including feedback on our managed IT support team, a review of your ticket and service history, any noted areas of concern, completed / upcoming projects and any future requirements or new technologies.
Free IT Consultations for the Third Sector
We offer free IT consultancy to all charities and organisations. Included in our free consultations is an initial meeting to find out more about your organisation, your current IT set-up and where you need support. This will help us provide a best practice for your organisation.
