We specialise in delivering enterprise-level support and solutions, we love it.
Our Solutions & Partners:
Our Support & Help Desk
Our Support and customer attention is our foundation, our culture and our vibe
We believe that supporting our customers is not just a function of the support team within IDyam Solutions but that each of our customers is supported by the network of staff working at IDyam Solutions. It’s important for the ongoing relationship that every customer has access to the right skill set, whether it’s for daily operational support issues or the long term strategic planning of the businesses use of technology
For many organisations, delivering Service Desk support, providing incident management and meeting user demands effectively is costly and resource intensive. The challenges multiply when operations span multiple countries, time-zones and language requirements.
We believe our Service Desk lie’s at the heart of delivering a compelling customer service and typically influence how the IT function is viewed across the organisation. As a result, our customer benefit from our commitment to delivering the highest quality user experience.
Alongside our Sense and Respond methodologies our ‘Shift-Left’ approach also seeks to automate key processes and proactively reduce the burden of support. Bringing solutions closer to the user, making the resolution cheaper and faster and at the same time, improving user satisfaction.
Our Service Desk works to the same processes and standards, on a common tool set compliant with the international standards. This ensures we operate to best practice principles and deliver exemplary service quality, providing a service that continuously improves and evolves in line with your organisation’s needs.
Key Benefits you will get as standard.
Each customer has a designated team of staff to help and provide support at all levels, this team would consist of:
Nominated Support Consultant
While any member of the support, and in appropriate cases, the service delivery team may deal with support calls, we like to assign one of the senior support consultants as the customer champion. This member of the team will be actively involved in the take on process and with ongoing development reviews and testing.
Responsible for working with the Client and IDyam Solutions Service Delivery team to review the business requirements and advise on the most appropriate strategy and solution. The solution architect is also responsible for the annual technical review (covered by the Full Service Annual Support option).
Operations Project Manager
Responsible for managing the development and delivery of agreed functionality, managing the release of development work into the live environment and ensuring that all aspects of scoping, testing and go live support are delivered on time.
Our Account Managers are experienced NAV consultants and their primary responsibility is for managing the relationship between the Client and IDyam Solutions. However, as well as ensuring all is well, they can also help with ad-hoc training and consultancy, manage your change requests, follow up issues logged in support and ensure that any news, be it company or product related is communicated to your teams.
Core Features (which can be adjusted for each client needs)
In terms of the support operation, the following outlines the standard support service and SLA’s.
IDyam Solutions provide standard support from Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays and other Public Holidays from 9:00am to 5:30pm (Support Hours). For those customers who require it, extended support is also available, this level of cover provides support Monday to Sunday, 8:00am to 11:00pm 365 days a year. But we know that sometimes you need help out of hours, so we offer occasional use of the out of hours service free to all our customers.
Calls can be logged by email or by phone and can be tracked via our portal. The next release of the portal will allow customers to log and close calls, as well as generate support reports to track our progress. However, we always encourage customers to log calls via the phone as we find this the most effective way of understanding and resolving issues for some people.
In addition to this, each customer receives a monthly report, providing them details of calls logged, open and closed, as well as the annual performance against the published SLA’s.

LS Retail NAV and Microsoft Dynamics NAV
If you’re embarking on a project with Dynamics NAV, you can rest assured that we’ll be with you every step of the way; after all – we’ve been there done that and then learnt from it…over and over and over again.
We know that support is the main point of contact for most companies. That’s why, when building our Team we only wanted those who already had extensive experience of working with Dynamics NAV.
We have a large and dedicated team providing support. Support and customer service is a culture here at IDYAM and anyone who can assist you in solving your problems is empowered to get involved.
Our Team currently supports many customers. We believe that always having the bandwidth to handle a customer’s issue is critical in providing great support, which is why we have a higher ratio of staff to customers than found in most other Dynamics NAV support businesses.
We provide a range of training courses, which have been designed for you to enhance your understanding and knowledge of Dynamics NAV, enabling you to get the most out of your system.
Whether you are new to the solution, an experienced user or like most of us somewhere in between, training is the key to unlocking the power of your Dynamics NAV solution. After all, if you don’t know it’s there and don’t know how to use it, then it’s of little value to your business.
We understand the importance of training, but a lot of training is cost prohibitive and therefore businesses tend to shy away from giving their staff the knowledge to use the tools provided to do their job. It’s a shame but more importantly it’s probably costing you money, not getting the best out of your IT investment can result in manual, laborious processes and workarounds.
Here at IDYAM, we have put together a range of training courses which have been designed for you to enhance your understanding and knowledge of the systems you use.
Sadly, for a lot of existing Dynamics NAV users either their system is broken or more so they feel their quality of service, value for money or strategic advice from their current partner is non-existent. Never fear, we’re here with our NAV Doctor Service to make it all better!
We provide a free “Health-Check” to any Microsoft Dynamics NAV software user who wants it. The Health Check is designed to get to the root of your issues and provide advice and a plan of action to sort them out.
By providing a more enhanced partnership with your organisation through improved support, better advice and access to years of knowledge and experience, we can not only remedy your current problems, but provide you with a solid platform and a strategic view to ensure that your Dynamics NAV software solution is fit for purpose for many years to come.
Performance Health Checks (SQL and Data director)
Your data is a critical part of your business. As your business continues to succeed, the demands on your database will continue to increase. The increasing demands of a growing database environment can lead to unexpected performance changes like poor performance or outages. Without a clear performance baseline and plan to deal with the complexities of your SQL Server infrastructure, your team risks being left in the dark when issues arise. You may even miss opportunities to cut costs and increase performance.
IDYAM specialises in database check-ups and performance tuning, especially within the retail arena. We work directly with your team to assess the overall performance of your environment. We’ll dig in to any issues that we uncover, provide explanations, and offer strategies to mitigate or remove the issue.
During the check-up, we’ll establish a performance baseline and set up a regular maintenance schedule. Regular maintenance will keep your database in great shape and will make it even easier to implement performance improvements. With a reliable baseline in place, you can track your performance improvements over time. As part of the check up, we also identify opportunities for database and server consolidation to cut costs.
Once the check-up is complete, you will have a performance baseline, an action plan, and a set of techniques to help you measure and maintain database performance.
