Customers can log a fault with our dedicated service team either by phone or email. Over 70% of our support team have been with Portal for over 10 years, enabling us to provide high quality and effective support. In addition, this stability helps to build an excellent rapport and long term relationship with our customers.
We believe the most effective support is provided by a team that acts as a single point of contact for fault logging, voice and data diagnostics and all fault rectification. This level of co-ordination enables our customers to be kept informed and thus remain confident that Portal is project managing and resolving all issues. Ultimately, this approach will save you time, money and much frustration.
Portals technical team will use remote diagnostic, line testing equipment and/or in-house lab facilities in the first instance in order to diagnose and remedy a fault. If remote fault resolution is not possible, our own qualified engineers will attend the customers site.
In order to ensure our technical staff are kept fully up to speed with our customers voice and data hardware, most equipment Portal has supplied is also installed in our technical facility. This facility can also help us reproduce and resolve technical problems on a system which is not “live”.
Where other hardware or software suppliers are disputing where a problem lies, then Portal are prepared (by prior agreement) to work with the suppliers to reach a swift and effective resolution.
In order to minimise fault resolution times, Portal carry approximately £150,000 worth of stock to resource our customers.
