Nov 22, 2010 (12:11 PM EST)

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CharTec, the SMB channel's leading "Hardware as a Service" (HaaS)/sales training provider, today announced it has added live telephone support through a partnership with Live Virtual Help Desk (LiveVHD), a leading North American help desk service for managed service providers (MSPs). CharTec's IT service company customers will now be able to offer their end users skilled front-end help desk support, based on LiveVHD's industry-leading internal processes for addressing computer system questions and problems.


With the addition of telephone support services for CharTec's hardware and bundled systems, MSPs and solution providers reduce the time and resource burden on their technical and support teams so they can concentrate on other business functions. LiveVHD technicians provide friendly, personable service in plain and simple English, and the company boasts a fix rate of nearly 90 percent on the first call.

"As the owner of an MSP business, I, like many business owners, struggle with growth and finding good people. The consideration to build out my own help desk was easily outweighed by the sheer cost and high turnover related to this endeavor. Working with LiveVHD has allowed our company to scale and gives us the type of support our clients expect. We are excited to now be able to bring this solution to our CharTec partners and know that we are providing the best service in the industry for them and their end clients," said Alex Rogers, CharTec's CEO. "We're confident that partners will be so impressed with LiveVHD, they will consider this service an extension of their own team.

"We are delighted to be complementing CharTec's range of services and look forward to providing their customers with exceptional help desk support," said Neil Jones, President of Live Virtual Help Desk. "We take great pride in supplying the industry with leading service that increases efficiency and profitability."

Live help desk service is now available to CharTec partners for a flat monthly fee, so support costs remain predictable and easy to budget.
