Platinum Support – Managed Cloud & Datacenter

Head of IT Service: »As a medium-sized company with the wide range of IT systems we have, we cannot have an in-house specialist for every technical system. Each of our IT employees has his or her technical focus, but when it comes to issues that require a high level of specialized knowledge, we fall back on the support contract with Softline as a second-level backup. This allows us to call in an appropriate specialist unbureaucratic and as soon as the need arises.«

As a pharmaceutical company, our customer has high standards for the quality of its products and services - credibility, reliability and innovation also play an important role for it in terms of its customer relationships. The foundation for this is a flexible, powerful and trouble-free IT infrastructure, for which Softline has been supporting the operation with its IT experts reliably for many years.
