- The ticketing system should be on our domain support.ourdomain.com
- Your staff will be managing the tickets and interact with the clients 24/7
- Our clinets must feel it is fully operated by us
- Notifications is very important to us in all possible ways and we truly interested on SMS notification.
- We might even extend the service to include phone answering by giving you a soft phone that connects to our IP Telephony system so you can answer calls coming to our support phone line.

Currently we have one Linux and one Windows server that need to be managed along with the Service Desk so a total of three clients only will be submitting tickets through the system. And the contract will be yearly with monthly payments.

Scope of Work. Our company is in need for a qualified experienced partner to handle our monitoring, maintenance and helpdesk services for us on urgent basis. For the time being we are interested on servers monitoring and maintenance, but in future we might monitor and manage our client's networks so the system should be scalable if it doesn't support it in your proposal or you might suggest another tool whenever it is needed.

- Windows 2008R2 web server: It hosts a single website with .Net CMS and applications and SQL Database.
- Support server: This server will be configured as a result of this project and will include the Helpdesk and monitoring tools.

The contractor staff will be responsible of handling our support email and interact with our clients by all means including the helpdesk and answering the phone in case we decide to include the phone support. If we find phone ticket logging necessary we will provide you with a soft phone that can be installed on one PC in your help desk center.

SMS and E-mail notifications
We will provide the username and password for any required number of email addresses that need to be linked with the tools. We also will provide the SMS gateway API for the contractor to integrate it with the monitoring and service desk tools, we expect the SMS notifications to be sent in only three cases "might be extended in future"
