Parker Black & Forrest
Managed Services Case Study
Parker Black & Forrest are based in Osbourne Park, Western Australia and are the states leading commercial distributors of door hardware, master keying systems, washroom equipment and associated fittings. The company saw a need for OIA’s Managed Services as they required proactive IT support that could mostly be provided remotely in order to save time and have issues resolved quickly, increasing productivity.
Parker Black & Forrest were searching for an IT provider to provide them value-for-money, proactive and efficient support. The drivers for changing to OIA were to minimise interruptions to work and resolve issues in a more timely manner, with support provided remotely where possible.
OIA’s Managed Services allows staff at Parker Black & Forrest (PBF) to quickly log support tickets via email, and have the peace of mind that the issue will be resolved in a timely manner.
PBF receives proactive support from OIA staff and advice which has helped them to prevent issues from occurring in the first
place, which reduces down-time and improves productivity. This helps reduce the number of Helpdesk tickets submitted and number of interruptions during the user’s day-to-day work.
