About our client

The organisation’s current IT contract with a single provider for 1st-3rd line support was not delivering the service value they needed. As a result they decided to split the services and move to a multi source agreement. They were not looking for a cost service focused but for better first line support 7/7 with an emphasis on strong customer satisfaction.
Acora was chosen as one of a number of partners.
Why did they choose Acora?
The organisation entered in to a three year contract with Acora in March 2018. Acora was able to address all their requirements, specifically around the customisation they needed for reporting KPIs. As a mid market provider, Acora was a good fit from a size & maturity perspective and more competitively priced than their incumbent.
