IT Optimization and Service Management Consulting:

An impressive statistic, however, few companies have the internal resources and tools required to gather the information they need to make informed strategic decisions concerning their IT processes. An increasing number of Synoptic clients are realizing that the ideal place to start to garner the insights they need is through using our IT Optimization Service. Perhaps you should start here too?
We help you to optimize your IT operations with proprietary best practice assessments that define an appropriate roadmap for change.

Do you have a requirement to develop an integrated strategy that includes a converged network platform to support future IT services?

In this era, knowledge is power … it is the foundation that provides you with the insights and tools you need to make informed strategic decisions concerning your IT environment. From Synoptic’s perspective, the ideal place to start to garner the insights you need is our suite of Technology Consulting Services.

Project and Program Management:
Making an investment in the right technology is only one of the critical components of a successful project. All too often, ensuring that the technology is implemented efficiently and on-time represents the major hurdle that causes you the greatest headache.
With the fragile economy it’s now more important than ever that the highest standards are applied to project and program management in your organization. That’s why it makes business sense to engage with Synoptic. Find out how we can help.
Dealing with the ‘Peaks and Troughs’ Associated with IT Resourcing:
Have you been challenged to reduce headcount? Do you need contingent IT staff for multiple regional and / or global locations? Do you need technical expertise beyond that which your in-house resources possess? Do you need to ramp up staff temporarily for a special project?
Today’s businesses face an ongoing and uphill battle to achieve operational excellence while attempting to reduce staffing costs. For an IT business unit, this typically means taking on additional projects … without the benefit of additional headcount. At the same time, management is becoming increasingly reliant on turnkey solutions and emerging technologies. And, as technologies evolve and converge, the technical skills required to implement, integrate and support them are becoming more and more specialized – and less available. This combination of factors often creates requirements for short and long-term, specialized IT services and resources.
Forward-thinking IT decision-makers are seeing value in developing effective processes to deal with the ‘peaks and troughs’ associated with IT resourcing. It makes good business sense to establish a relationship with an IT staffing partner that can deliver fast fulfillment of high-quality, skilled and reasonably-priced resources, as needed.
Supplementing your in-house IT staff with Synoptic’s IT professionals will enable your organization to operate more efficiently as you implement the technological innovations that are critical for success. Our experts have experience in a wide range of technologies gained across multiple geographies and vertical industries. Contact Synoptic office to find out more about our capabilities in your location and discuss how our Staffing Solutions can add value to your business.
Our approach to delivering proactive, multi-vendor IT support services:
When it comes to business critical IT services, such as your network you can’t afford breaks in service. Unplanned events happen and when they do it’s a race against time to get your systems up and running. The good news is that the effects of service interruptions flowing from errors and unexpected events can be mitigated by taking proactive steps to maximize network uptime. That’s where partnering with Synoptic makes business sense. Delivering IT services is one of our core competencies and our clients leverage our suite of Uptime Maintenance and Support services to develop and execute strategies that deliver a relevant IT function into their businesses.
Flexibility is the cornerstone of our approach to multi-vendor support and we are mindful that every client is different and has its own specific requirements. Depending on your unique business challenges, your needs may span from basic maintenance services (i.e. the provision of spares and a capability to fix a problem when it occurs), to support services (which includes access to technology expertise and operational capabilities) or fully managed services, which involves handing over the end-to-end management and operation of parts of or even its entire IT estate, to a trusted partner.
By applying our product lifecycle management capabilities, we are able to constantly refine and tweak our IT support services to remain responsive and relevant to your unique requirements as well as changing macro-economic trends.
Uptime services are delivered globally through our Global Service Centers which enable us to deliver support at a consistent level to our clients around the world. This ability comes from having technical expertise across multiple technologies and vendors; and the geographical foot print to support any of our clients’ sites at any time.

How we deliver:
Execution … Consistency … Best Practice … Flexibility
The cornerstones of Synoptic’s approach to service delivery are: execution, consistency, best practice and flexibility.
Execution is all about giving you the reassurance that we have the ability to ‘get things done’ and the ability to provide services where you need them, while still taking into account local nuances and cultural considerations. Our on-the-ground presence across Saudi Arabia, coupled with our extensive network of preferred partners, allows us to deliver services in each nook & corner of the country.
Consistency is another non-negotiable. By consistency, we mean the ability to deliver in the same manner, to the same service levels and with the same type of pricing, processes and methodologies across the globe. At Synoptic, our global footprint allows us to adapt our service offerings to accommodate regional or country-specific requirements and you can rest assured that you will receive a consistent, quality service experience – regardless of your location.
Alignment to accepted industry best practice standards such as the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a critical enabler of consistency. Synoptic embraces global best practice throughout its business. From an IT Service Management perspective, we have modeled our service processes on ITIL. Furthermore, as our working procedures have been directly derived from our processes and include local specificities, we are able to meet your requirements, regardless of their geography and culture.
Our experience has taught us that flexibility is the operative word for outsourcing strategies and contracts because outsourcing can never be separated from business goals. To drive the desired results, outsourcing relationships must constantly evolve. We understand that you want to engage with service providers who are willing and able to allow a degree of flexibility into the contract and have continued to invest in our service offerings and capabilities to provide the utmost flexibility to our clients. Within our organization, we also embrace the concept of flexible commercial models, which may include an element of shared risk and reward.
When it comes to delivering IT Services, these four entities – execution, consistency, best practice and flexibility – work in concert to set us apart from our competition. We’d welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can bring these differentiators to bear on your business.
