Human expertise and dedication
Smile stands apart from classic hosts through its service-oriented organization. In fact, our service centre is organized into teams of Systems and Network Engineers (SNEs). Yours will be the same team as the one in charge of first and second line support for your platform, under the responsibility of a Project Manager (your dedicated contact).This is our guarantee to you, of a dedicated project team.
This structure allows us to personalize our relations with you. You will work with contacts that you know and who know your platform, so that they can step in and intervene quickly and efficiently.
This organization does not exclude the use of ITIL best practices with custom process management (incidents, problems, changes, etc.) and systematic platform documentation (CMDB, KEDB, etc.).
If your project is handled by Smile’s engineering teams, a single contact will be designated for you, for all your project’s phases: design, development, integration, hosting, maintenance, training, etc.
No more being shuffled back and forth between integrator and host, thanks to your single provider: Smile!
