Helping you move forward, faster.

In today’s modern business, managed services for Microsoft solutions should represent more than simple break-fix support. Avantiico’s Live Services offers a unified support-model that allows your business to be preemptive in managing your Microsoft solution landscape without losing sight of your business’s vision and evolving goals – so you can focus on what matters.

WHAT IS LIVE SERVICES?

Your Vision | Our Support

Your organization’s success with key Microsoft Applications such as Dynamics 365, Azure, Power Platform, and Microsoft 365 is heavily dependent on a quality support plan and the Microsoft partner selected to manage it. Through the partner’s subject matter expertise and mastery of the Microsoft solution ecosystem and industry experience, paired with the knowledge of your landscape’s products, a Microsoft Partner should guide you in your business’s vision while offering support to your IT team. Live Services unifies all of your managed services, including advisory services,  business solution road-mapping, Microsoft licensing needs, break/fix support, business application updates, Microsoft product-release guidance, user training, and product adoption guidance.
