Monitoring and Incident Management for large US Telco

Client Speak

"So it has always amazed me how the ROCC TechM team pulls together and works so hard to accomplish whatever is thrown your way. But I have to tell you, this week-end you guys BLEW me away!! As if this wouldn't have been bad enough, this is such a busy time of the year and every day (especially week-ends) are full with family plans - holiday parties, putting up Christmas trees, etc. But around noon or so on Sunday, we started calling people to come in to cover STL during the power up until STL ROCC team could get up and running again. Within 60-90 minutes later I had 8 more people onsite that dropped everything they were doing to rush into work. It blew me away!!

All week-end the ROCC team in STL and SD were working overtime to help get things restored. You guys worked together as a team, everyone helping where they could and totally focused on the job at hand. Tech Mahindra Onshore was working right there with us and coordinated the Offshore to take care of the "normal" monitoring, allowing us to concentrate on the restoral.

Really you are guys are amazing - all of you. Thank you so much!"
