KMT Download May 2021 Edition

Hi All,

Welcome to the May KMT-Download.

May was a great month with most of our team joining us back in the office.  We celebrated birthdays, had some great face-to-face meetings, and even welcomed some prospective clients onsite which generated a fantastic buzz and a renewed energy.    That was until… well… LOCKDOWN 4.0!

Luckily, we were in the privileged position to be able to easily pivot back to remote working for both our staff and our clients at a moment’s notice.

We won a few awards in May.  Ranking as a Top Managed IT Service Company 2021 by Tech Reviewer and Best Managed IT Service Company in Melbourne Australia 2021 by Global Brands.  You can check out our other awards here on our new awards page.

Our team expanded with our new starters:  Anna Gilbert, Mai Tran and Anthony Collins.  Welcome to the team!

There is still a large focus on Cyber Security as more cyber incidents continue to threaten Australian Businesses.  With over 64% of cyber attacks being directed at small and medium businesses and the average cost around $200K, businesses cannot continue to ignore the importance of implementing a Cyber Security Strategy.

For the third month in a row, we are running our cybersecurity webinar.  Our webinar series was developed to assist our clients and other Australian businesses understand how prevalent cyber attacks are and why dedicated cyber security protection is now not an option.  We will be running our third cyber security webinar on the 8th of June and it’s called “5 reasons businesses can no longer ignore a cyber security strategy in 2021″.   If you have not already, please register on our website.

Our Service Desk is making some changes and we will be taking things to the next level.  Expect a few changes with Madeleine McKenna advancing into a Customer Experience Manager role to purely focus on customer experience and developing programs and initiatives to ensure that we continue to #ChangeTheGame with our customer service.

We cant wait to see the outcomes of these initiatives and hope you all stay safe!

Much love,
Bradley Kaine
Managing Director – KMT

Managed IT Support Desk CSAT and KPI scores for the month of May 2021

IT Support Desk Update

Each month we publish our KPI's which detail our previous months' performance.

These are just a few of the KPIs we use to monitor and evaluate our performance, so we can continually improve what we do.   We provide clients with detailed reporting to confirm that we are keeping our promises, exceeding expectations, and delivering an excellent service experience.

Client Case Study

Foamex meets growth plans in a tough market due to improvements in IT infrastructure

Foamex realised at a point that it had outgrown its IT infrastructure and support. As the company expanded with multiple sites and multi-state operations, it became obvious that the traditional method of IT support was not working again. The company was losing track of support requests and had several frustrated users. It was obvious that a bigger and better platform was needed.

Cyber Update

What is Ransomware and how to safeguard against it.

Ransomware, what is it really?  Ransomware has gained popularity due to a gradual but steady increase in attacks over recent years. In the first quarter of the 2020 financial year, there was a significant increase in incident reporting. This is a result of the working-from-home transition. The reason behind it was the lack of remote work cyber security practices and policies for employees by the organisations. Hence, cyber criminals have been using this opportunity to exploit vulnerabilities in small and medium businesses.
