After Sales Support

Working partnership with our Education customers, providing the above solutions, we have learnt that ‘after-sales support’ is one of their major requirements and have had poor experiences with suppliers in the past including;

  • Selling equipment only “box-shifters”, with no after sales support or maintenance services
  • Call centre support with no knowledge of the product or solution sold
  • Limited or no support services in the event of an issue, query or major fault
  • Customer care is not a priority, unless they can sell you something

Khipu’s ethos is to provide ‘outstanding’ technical and after sales support to our customers, during and after a project implementation. Our goal is to have exceptional customer references that can then enable our business to grow and who will provide testimonials to customers who are considering our solutions. Please go to KARMA for more details.

Our customer references include; University of Portsmouth, University of Essex, University of West London, Durham University, University of the Free State, University of Westminster, University of Cape Town, Birkbeck – University of London, Trent College, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Kent College Canterbury, University of Nottingham, University of Oxford including Pembroke College, New College Oxford, St Anne’s College and St Hilda’s College.

“Being a leading University in South Africa, we have to satisfy the requirements of our research community for a continually improving flexible, agile and enjoyable working environment; enabling them to access Educational resources with minimal boundaries. In order to meet this goal and protect our environment at the same time, we have to ensure key factors such as network visibility and security are in place, without effecting or disrupting the user experience. Working in partnership with Khipu Networks, we have selected their “Cyber Security and BYOD” solution offering that will enable us to have a complete picture of our large network environment and provision “Bring Your Own Device” initiatives to our user base, without compromising security”
