IT House CORE Cover is our minimum level of monthly support. It provides businesses with the essential level of service for their cloud services, and also allows us to effectively provide services on a block hours basis where required. The price for CORE subscription is $99 per month + gst.
The following outlines the inclusions in IT House Core Support.
Access to 30 minute increment billing for block hours
Usually block hours are consumed in 1 hour increments, or part there of. However many tasks (particularly phone call queries) often will take 30 minutes or much less. Subscribing to our Core Cover means that you can use your block hours more efficiently.
Discounted Block Hour Purchases
Subscribing to IT House CORE Cover provides a 10% discount on block hour purchases.
