Flexible service and support options Zetes Service Delivery Management


A proactive approach means you get the most from your auto-ID technology investment

At Zetes, we understand our customers expect value for money. Success in today’s business environment means a careful balancing act between strategic investments in technology to enhance operational productivity and prudent cash management. Any expenditure has an opportunity cost and needs to be justified with a sound business case.

Adding value with service delivery management

Our proactive service delivery management and support team works closely with customers to make sure you are using your auto-ID technology as effectively as possible and act as an early warning system, identifying problems before they become an issue. As a system integrator, Zetes consistently demonstrates technical excellence in all aspects of auto ID and we deliver customer service and support according to the same best of breed, solution focused philosophy. We aim to add value to your business, with a consultative approach and the widest possible array of service and support options tailored to your exact requirements. Whether your need is for basic return to depot hardware maintenance or full solution managed services with service delivery management, the only aspect of Zetes’ support offering that could be described as standardised is our relentless pursuit of excellence and achievement of the highest performance standards.

Best Practice Based on ITIL Principles

At the heart of Zetes’ customer support is a structured approach to service and support delivery based on ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) principles. Originally created by the UK Government, ITIL is now globally regarded as a best practice framework by establishing a business management approach to the provision of IT services and added value in the form of Service Management capabilities. A key benefit to customers of Zetes using this approach is service transition, marking the clear evolution from the development / implementation phase into support with a controlled handover, support documentation and training.



Our Promise Set on Record

We assign the same level of flexibility and customisation to our Service Level Agreements (SLAs) as we do to the choice of support options available. Taking a proactive approach we create a tailored SLA that meets your precise needs – from Time & Materials based services to fully inclusive managed service agreements with guaranteed response times, providing a fixed total cost of ownership. In-built Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) measure performance standards on an ongoing basis. A range of fully tailored customer reporting options provide the basis for continuous service improvement plans.

“Having used Zetes’ hardware support service over many years we have found it professional, efficient and reliable in delivering to our expectations as a customer” Paul Briscall, Business Systems Manager, Ideal Stelrad Group

Our aim is to deliver products which are immediately ready for use on arrival at the customer’s site. Our fully equipped and stocked internal repairs workshop has also been accredited as an Authorised Vocollect and Repair Centre, an Intermec Global Services Partner and we are the only Authorised IND Repair Centre in the UK.



Multinational Support

Multinational customers will benefit from Zetes' network of support centres with strong presence in 16 countries worldwide. This enables Zetes to deliver localised or centralised support models that cater to the needs of the customers in a fast and effective manner. Additionally, the expertise of specialist Guide Partners is available to customers.

Single contract and service management with a local touch allows for unparalleled service tailored to your businesses needs.


Effective Incident Management

Whether a customer calls Zetes support purely for hardware maintenance, application software support or issues relating to a complex solution, the initial reporting, logging, routing, tracking and escalation of every call is essential. Our primary aim is always the earliest possible resolution of any issue and full restoration of service with the least inconvenience to the user. All Zetes support customers have the ability to log any incident electronically and we also provide the option to speak directly to our specialist Service Desk, all of whom have full access to our integrated contracts and incident management system.


Zetes offers a service delivery and support option to suit every business need.

Hardware Maintenance

A key element of our hardware maintenance package includes the provision and management of “buffer stock” which can be owned by either Zetes or individual customers. Holding ready to go, pre-commissioned buffer stock ensures we are able to keep disruption and service downtime to an absolute minimum. Options include:

• • • • •

Warranty and Extended Cover.

5 Day Return to Depot Repair – Just 5 days after receiving your faulty product, we will ship fully repaired and commissioned products back to you. The entire process is managed by Zetes.

8 + 8 Onsite (4 + 4 Onsite also available) – Especially valuable for large or fixed equipment such as scanners or printers; within 8 hours a Zetes engineer performs onsite diagnostics and a unit is either repaired or swapped out within a further 8 hours. 4 + 4 Onsite offers even faster problem resolution. 24/7 Engineering – A pre-requisite for mission critical wireless infrastructure.

Additional services include Site Surveys and proactive Maintenance Health Checks including Battery Maintenance, Server Hosting and Remote Device Management to ensure your facility’s infrastructure is optimised according to current capacity requirements.

Fully Comprehensive Repair – Incorporates the 5 Day Depot Repair service plus up to 100% accidental damage cover. This option gives customers clear total cost of ownership.

Advance Exchange – Using either Zetes or customer owned buffer stock we offer a next day replacement service. By managing buffer stock centrally we reduce your capital expenditure.

Emergency Exchange – Again using buffer stocks but with next day advanced replacement and collection via specially selected technical courier partners. This option both minimises down time and protects your assets.

Software Solutions Support

Fundamental to good software solution support is configuration and change management. And as with hardware support, structured incident management is the starting point for dealing effectively and efficiently with all software issues.

As soon as our support desk receives a customer call, logged “tickets” are allocated to the most appropriate member of the Technical Support team to undertake Problem management, with a defined priority level. Our Technical Support Team are industry specialists covering multiple disciplines and software languages, with full access to customer specific data. We either obtain remote access or use virtual machines simulating the customers’ environment allowing the technical team to:-

“Application support is very user friendly; Zetes are quick to establish a good relationship with system users and give a great service...

“Technical staff are keen to fix problems and they always stay with you until the issue is solved...

“Training is so good you don’t need to use it often, but when it’s required, it’s always excellent.” Ray Winter, Head of Risk Management at Ryman
