Success Story

There are a host of services we can offer a company or individual who want to implement remote support office solutions.  First let's discuss how this might work.  One of our clients approaches technical support solutions with satellite offices and remote infrastructure support.


This large mid-south refinery client with offices in Texas and refinery operations in Alabama utilizes a distributed office support arrangement out of necessity as much as out of good business practices.  Corporate offices, refinery operations, procurement and product sales are distributed in satellite office throughout the country.  Information Technology services are delivered by a very small internal employee support group and 'outsourced' to Free Agent service companies for specialized technical support.  Our sister organization, EDI Support Services is one of the outsourced companies chosen to support all electronic transaction processing for the procurement division.  The enterprise resource planning and support system is serviced by a remote company as is the application support services.  All these service operations are linked/connected by 24/7 broadband virtual private networks which allows for around the clock support.  No waiting for on-call site visits when immediate support is available at the click of a mouse.


Cost Effective Approach

This approach is cost effective and supports critical business activities.  There is no need for on-site presence for most business requirements.  The ability for the core management team to manage work is the key component.  Just because a person is 'in the office' does not mean they are productive.  The ability to manage work is a key component to the implementation of Working Remote and our support services.
