Shift SLA Support


Redefined Support

Be Proactive, Not Reactive

METHOD IT Shift Support allows companies to have a consistent IT presence which they can fully rely on with a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time IT employee. 



METHOD IT のシフトサポートでは弊社の信頼できるスタッフが一貫したサポートを提供。常勤IT担当者の雇用コストを大幅に削減することができます。



Once-a-week, consistent IT presence to work alongside global IT


Redefined Support - Proactive IT, not just reactive when problems arise


Includes on-site training


Case Study


A long-term hedge fund client, with a staff list of eight, required local, bilingual IT support in Tokyo but not on a permanent basis.
We provided them with a three-hour shift once a week in order to solve issues, deal with queries and work alongside global headquarters regarding upgrades, maintenance and infrastructure in its Tokyo branch.


We bridge the gap with IT as a service
