Assignment Detail:- ICTSAS527 - Manage Client Problems Assignment - Danford College
Part 1 - Determine, plan and implement ICT support and resolution services #1
The Client Support Team has come up with a solution, in principle, for NowDays Office Supplies-
Check the proposed solution and technical support needs that the Client Support Team has come up with- You'll find this information below-
Then, you will need to complete the documentation to get the job underway- This means documenting client requirements and drafting client and technical support contracts-
Based on the needs of NowDays Office Supplies, and the solution and technical support that has been identified with the client:
1- Complete the client requirements template to agree on the needs and scope of the client's request-
2- Draft a client contract to agree on the solution-
3- Draft a technical support contract to agree on the level and cost of support-
Needs of NowDays Office Supplies
NowDays Office Supplies has an information management issue and has requested advice from Solutions R Us-
NowDays sales staff have a problem accessing product information when they are in the field- There are ten sales people who need to access a variety of catalogues in order to find relevant information for customers- In the past, this has meant carrying many large, cumbersome loose-leaf folders with them- They want to find a better way to store this information-
Most of the sales people have basic computer skills and they are all provided with laptop computers to do their work- They currently use the organisation's intranet site to upload orders received throughout the day- However, it would not be desirable for the sales staff to go online when they are with a customer-
Therefore, the solution to this problem has to rely on technology which works offline- The catalogues are currently available in electronic form but are too big to store on a floppy disk, each one being approximately 30 MB, and there are currently ten catalogues- For various reasons, the organisation would rather not store the catalogues on hard disk either-
Solution and technical support required
The solution has been to recommend a 512 MB memory stick, storing the electronic catalogues, for each sales person- This way the catalogues can be easily displayed to customers either on their own PC in their workplace, or on the salesperson's laptop- As well, updates of the catalogues can be issued to sales staff from the intranet site- In order to complete the documentation for this solution:
1- You will need to do some research to find a particular model of memory stick devices you would recommend, including price-
2- Draft a customer contract, using the Customer contract template provided under Tools-
The purpose of the contract is to explain to the customer the suggested solution from the Client Support Team and to get client approval of this solution-
Having received the go-ahead from the client, you'll need to identify the technical support required by the client- After further communication with the client, you've agreed that you are to provide their sales staff with a written help guide on using the memory sticks to retrieve information:
-Twelve copies of the help guide will be needed for the client-
-You expect it will take you approximately 4 hours, @ $65 per hour, to write the guide and coordinate the printing-
-The help guide will be printed in colour-
-The printing cost is $5-80 per unit -copy--
To complete the documentation for technical support:
-Draft a technical support contract, use the Technical support contract template provided under Tools-
This requires you to specify the level of technical support agreed on and give a costing-
