Access Authorization

Geeks Solutions requires administrative access to the servers in order to provide server administration, helpdesk logins to work on ticket issues.


Geeks Solutions must also be authorized to contact the data center personnel responsible for hardware maintenance and technical support. Without the appropriate access rights – administrative access and authority to contact the appropriate data center personnel – Geeks Solutions cannot provide the highest quality services.

Response Time vs. Resolution Time

It is critical to understand that response time and resolution time are separate and distinct the majority of the time. Response time is the time it takes to return contact to you and start working on the resolution. Resolution time is the date and time a given problem is resolved or question answered. Because of the potential for 3rd parties and unknown situations, Geeks Solutions cannot provide a guaranteed resolution time when dealing with critical events or down systems. Geeks Solutions is responsible only for the software-level (operating system and application software) operation of servers it is contracted to manage. Geeks Solutions must be notified of all applications that are required to function in order for the system to be declared “in working order.” Geeks Solutions cannot be held accountable for system down time caused by hardware failures for ex. ( CPU fan issues, Disk issues , RAM Issues ) or connectivity issues.
