Areas of Practice
Accounting and Financial Systems
We combine knowledge of financial and accounting systems with an understanding of best practices to help accounting and finance departments to become more efficient. Corporate finance organizations are facing unparalleled pressure to implement technology and improve operations. To be competitive, the goal of leading finance organizations is to achieve a return on financial systems investments, integrate and standardize applications and processes, and manage project risks, while improving performance and lowering costs. However, the challenges of having to do more with less, the issues of implementing complex financial systems and integrating functions, change management and regulatory requirements, along with the need for experienced staff, create challenges that make transformation difficult.
C3 Systems’ Accounting and Financial System Support Services offers a “one-stop-shop” of end-to-end project and systems implementation support. Supported by C3 Systems’ project management methodologies, financial systems implementation experienced staff, and core services, our transformation solutions leverage our industry experience to accelerate a return on investment through faster, more accurate delivery of solutions. Our approach improves the system’s performance, combining applicable best practices and significantly improving the efficiency and accuracy of the department.

Help Desk/ End User/ Call Center Support Services
C3 Systems offer our clients with a help desk solution that can serve both Enterprise businesses and Small-Med Businesses. We provide Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 technical support to your computer users or other IT staff and also assist you in keeping up with the high demand of your users to allow your IT staff to focus on their core responsibilities.
Unlike many of today’s top-ranked help desk outsource vendors, who use a one-size-fits-all approach, we cater our help desk for each customer based on your help desk outsourcing needs. Our help desk outsourcing services are divided into 3 different tiers based on complexity. As mentioned above we provide support for all Tiers of Support.
Tier 1 Support – Tier 1 provides basic Software Application and/or Hardware support to callers/users. These are usually quick calls that field the “How to?” questions or to fix a documented company/agency issue. Tier 2 Support – Tier 2 provides more complex support and/or subject matter expertise on software application and/or hardware and is usually an escalation of the call from Tier 1. In most cases Tier 1 and Tier 2 support can be handled by the same support technician based on their experience levels. Tier 3 Support – Tier 3 provides support on complex hardware and network operating system software. Tier 3 support can take much longer support times depending on type of issue.
We also provide our clients with Application Support, Hardware Diagnosis, Network Support, Front line call greeting and call routing, Ticket tracking and monitoring, and Remote Control assistance.
C3 Systems uses predictable, repeatable processes to deliver consistency that guarantees quality service to your callers/ Users. Our help desk service technicians/agents will always strive to resolve your issue from the ticket open to close no matter if we can actually fix the issue or we have to escalate to someone else. C3 Systems takes complete responsibility of your calls to solve the issue faster with higher customer satisfaction.
