Why LME Services?

A Comparative Analysis of LME vs Other I.T. Providers



Their Support Process

You call for help, get put into a HelpDesk queue and then hope for a quick response and ALSO pray that whoever gets your support ticket knows your network and what they’re doing.


Their Team

Most IT Companies have a lot of overhead so in order to hit their margins, they need to staff cheap, low-level technicians.

On average we see that most firms staff 80% of their firm with these low level (Tier 1) support and that means that when you call you’re getting someone who barely knows your network and who has only a rudimentary understanding of I.T. Support


Their Pricing is $ or $$$

They have Gold Plans, Platinum Plans and all manner of up-sells that get confusing and which, truth be told, may or may not be valuable to your operations.

They have yearly agreements, tie themselves into all your licensing and management and make distancing yourself a real pain because they know that companies will typically stick with their lousy IT support rather than move away and possible face another major headache.

Our Support Process

When you work with LME, you get 2 points of contact with a 3rd person knowledgeable about your network as an emergency contact.

You have your favorite 2 techs cell phone number and can reach out via our main line to be patched through and have a helpdesk ticket created for you.

Once an issue has been raised, a Tier 3 technician with 10+ years experience, whom you know and love, will handle its resolution.


The LME Team

We are small & family run and because we require at least 10 years of IT support experience, the people you talk to ALWAYS fall into the Tier 3 category.

You will get 2 main support techs and those 2 people will know your network inside and out and whenever you need help, you talk directly with them.

We don’t staff Tier 1, we don’t have turnover, and because we have a wide breadth of knowledge we can assist with any tech questions, from VOIP and Network Security to Web Design and SEO.


Our Pricing – $$

We have a suite of tools that we know and love and we put those tools on your network so that you can rest assured that even Vlad would have trouble getting in.

There are no Gold or Platinum Plans, we simply give you what you need and either charge you monthly or let you pay as you go.

We don’t require yearly agreements, we make sure everything you purchase is registered to you, and we make sure you understand what you are getting and why because it helps us do a¬†better job in the long run.
