  8. We have a specific line-of-business application that is not widely used. Can IntrinsIQ support and manage it?

  9. How is IntrinsIQ different from other IT companies?
    We like to think of ourselves as the best of both worlds. The ideal middle ground between one-man shops that cannot keep up with demanding workload and big conglomerates, who see you as just another customer record in their database. We work closely with our clients, developing personal relationships and gaining an extensive familiarity with their processes and applications. IntrinsIQ operates with complete transparency, and are upfront about all issues and fees. Regardless of the project or the specific circumstances, we will do everything within our power to achieve the best possible result and turn all of our clients into long standing relationships.

  10. What is covered in IntrinsIQ support plans?
    At IntrinsIQ, we understand that every business is unique, and no one service plan fits all. Alternatively, we offer three levels of support coverage, so you can find the one that best caters to your needs.
    • The Base Plan is well-suited for clients who have a limited number of users, or who choose IntrinsIQ as a supplement to their internal IT staff. The Base Plan provides 24/7 monitoring, preventative maintenance of all servers, software, and workstations.
    • The Enhanced Plan provides all of the benefits of the Base Plan, along with free loaner equipment, off-site backups, and email failover service. This option is ideal for small to medium businesses that run multiple workstations and need to secure sensitive data.
    • Our top tier option is the Complete Plan, which includes everything in the Base and Enhanced Plans along with complete third-party vendor management, access to live help desk personnel, onsite technicians, and our disaster recovery service. The Complete Plan provides you with maximum peace of mind, knowing that IntrinsIQ is always in your corner.

  11. How is support performed?
    The majority of computer issues can be fixed remotely, ensuring prompt resolution to many common problems. When a support ticket is submitted, a Rocket IT network engineer will contact you to request permission to access your computer remotely. Most issues can be diagnosed and resolved in less time than it would take an in-house IT tech to walk over to your office. In cases when a physical presence is needed, IntrinsIQ will dispatch a system or network engineer to quickly resolve the issue.

  12. Do I have to sign a long-term service agreement?
    Absolutely not! After establishing a support plan that satisfies your business needs, IntrinsIQ representative will prepare an agreement that outlines the details of the services to be provided. If for any reason you decide that IntrinsIQ is not right for your company, we first ask that you give us the chance to make it right, and if that's not possible and you no longer need IntrinsIQ, you will only need to submit 30 days’ notice to terminate your agreement.
