The IT support modes you can find in Singapore for IT support are Ad Hoc Support, Bundle Hours, Fixed Fee Managed Support, and Outsourced Placement.
Each company has different needs and requirements, there is no one model that is suitable for everyone.
The factors to consider when selecting an IT support model are your company’s budget, reliance on technologies, sensitivity to operation downtime resulting from IT failure, and whether you want reactive or proactive IT support.
