Amicom Remote+ provides unlimited remote support during office hours

Contacting our Service Desk couldn't be easier - either email, or call for immediate connection to an engineer - as often as you need. You will speak directly to an engineer.

If we can't fix the problem remotely or you need support out of hours that's not a problem, as a contract customer you will be entitled to preferential onsite, out of hours, and project rates so we can always be there when you need us.
