06 Apr 2022 The importance of software support for your business
The software you use in your business is like the oil that keeps your car running smoothly. It’s taken for granted when it’s doing its job properly, but as soon as something goes wrong, things can come grinding to a shuddering halt.
Based on our experience, working with hundreds of customers over the last 10 years, we can highlight the impact which technology problems can have on the modern business.

Addressing software issues proactively
Most software needs to be updated or ‘patched’ from time to time. The reasons for this are many, but the nature of software is that new features may be added, and security vulnerabilities may need to be plugged.
Perhaps the most common reason, however, is that operating systems and other underlying infrastructure components are updated, so if the application running on them or in conjunction with them (to extend their capabilities) are not themselves updated within a specified timeframe, issues may start to expose.
The BlueFinch approach
BlueFinch offers premium software support and expert consultancy services to take care of all these issues before they occur.
Here’s how it works and why it is necessary. BlueFinch works with market leading suppliers like HelpSystems that releases regular software products updates and fixes to deal with bugs or improve the user experience.
In other words, software such as GoAnywhere MFT, that are designed to perform mission critical data exchange processes, must keep pace and release updates at or near the time that updated versions of the software are issued.
We provide customers with access to an online customer portal, and ensure with notifications that you receive your software updates in a timely manner to ensure that your product continues to work as expected.
The above mentioned software updates also include feature, security and usability improvements, so as well as working with the latest version of the software you depend upon, you’ll also benefit from software improvements.
World class technical support
The benefits of software updates are clear. However, updates are only segment of the whole picture. To complement software updates and implement them correctly, technical support is crucial.
BlueFinch online support is available 24×7 and we offer different support levels to meet the high demands from our customers. The different levels of support enable clients to tailor the support they receive to suit their budget and requirements. No matter which level of support you opt for, you will know that the solution for your technical issue can be just a simple point of contact away.
As well as online support we empower our customers to help themselves, with technical guides, a customer exclusive community, and knowledge centre to find answers to many of your common questions.
