Application Support

Page Content

Service Description

  • Account Management - We set up accounts for customers, help them log in, and remove accounts when necessary. We also make sure the customers have the appropriate level of access needed.
  • Scripting - We create scripts on servers to help move data appropriately. This could include anything from SQL scripts, FTP, or other scripting languages. We help get the data from our servers to the vendor or third-party systems.
  • Application Installation and Upgrades - For applications that we manage, we work with the vendor to manage upgrades. We make sure data integrity is maintained, downtime is minimized, and the vendor is assisted with technical support as needed.
  • Software Integration - We provide technical support and communication as a liaison between vendors and USM customers. We help manage the transferring of data from our systems to the vendor and vice-versa.
  • Application Software Maintenance - We ensure every Application server has all the software it needs to run. We handle the extra packages that need to be installed and/or upgraded for the system. If a vendor requires an upgrade, or additional software on which the application is dependent to maintain support, we help our customers upgrade to the correct version to keep their application running.
  • We provide systems overview, written instructions and assistance with tasks associated with applications.
  • We consult on purchases of software or peripherals related to our supported applications.
