Excellent service, incredible value
Opmerkingen: They are incredibly customer focused. Our reps are very attentive and see to any questions we have or additional needs we bring to them very quickly and efficiently. For a company that runs on AI, they bring a very personal touch to the experience.
Electric AI has been an incredible partner in bringing our entire IT environment up to the standards needed as our company has scaled. They have taken so much work from the Operations team in the "Help Desk" area and been vital in sourcing solutions to manage our work more securely and efficiently than we could have on our own. The value they bring for the price is massive, especially when you consider what the cost of bringing IT management in house with a salaried employee.
There are some finder details of onboarding that we still need to finesse manually, but Electric is constantly improving their portal for technology resourcing and this issue has consistently diminished over our time with them.
Electric is an invaluable resource for my company
Opmerkingen: My overall experience with Electric has been fantastic! Admittedly, it was rocky at the beginning but I believe that's merely from not clearly knowing each organization's expectations. But once that was rectified, it's been an amazing experience ever since. I've experienced nothing but the highest level of customer service for the most part and truly depend on Electric for our IT needs.
The ease of accessibility, their quick response time, and the customer service. And Quality Assurance Analyst Dyran White has been an absolute godsend for us!
I've had mostly positive encounters, however, one of my more recent interactions was negative in that I was clearly dealing with someone from another country and the language barrier made it quite difficult to communicate efficiently and effectively with them. I had to repeat myself and it was quite time-consuming having to repeatedly explain my needs.
Great marketing, good ideas, poor execution
Opmerkingen: I like the concept. I think COVID caused Electric to scale hard, and they scaled in very incorrect ways. Instead of relying on technology, everything is click script done by a human. I don't know how our agents wound up deviating from said scripts so often, but this is ultimately the issue with humans - they make mistakes. My CS rep was awesome, he could not have been more understanding and dedicated to making the partnership work, and I felt awful constantly having to raise QA issues with him. The product team seems to have the right ideas. One specific product person I spoke with was very understanding of how the issues we were facing seemed to manifest, and we appeared in agreement on how technology and automation was the key to the success of the product. I appreciated her willingness to sit down and chat about the health of the partnership. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend Electric in this current form. Without key investments in automating against well documented and established SaaS APIs, there is too much human involvement. Almost every task requires one of your employees to double check their work. I'd be very curious to see how the product functions in 12-24 months once they get through some more of their roadmap.
I love the accessibility of the Slack-based helpdesk. Feels more conversational, more organic, less clinical than typical email based IT. My customer success manager was committed, insightful, and a great asset.
Quality of service was the #1 issue on a consistent basis. Tickets of the same exact nature would be handled in different ways depending on the agent or the day of the week. Administrative access was granted to users despite explicit instruction to never do that on multiple occasions, despite numerous reiterations of process. It would take hours and constant prompting to get updates to tickets or to close any kind of loop. Many promises made during the sales process wound up being completely untrue, such as DIY JAMF/MDM policies, and being given the JAMF/MDM config/instance when the contract expires. Onboardings were executed on time but with regular mistakes, such as missing group memberships or typos or putting their new work email in as a personal secondary email. Paid projects executed through the project management team were executed poorly, such as not taking backups before large-scale email migrations that wound up having issues with no backups to rely on. In the waning days of our contract, onboarding requests were marked as completed despite having absolutely no progress made. Even now after having cancelled our contract, they continue to try and bill our card for a contract extension that was cancelled, even after direct outreach to have them stop.
Very Helpful IT Resource!
Opmerkingen: My overall daily interactions are typically very good! They are prompt, helpful, and I appreciate all their efforts.
I have worked with Electric for almost 3 years! We have had our ups and downs but overall I am happy with their performance! Each tech that I speak with is knowledgeable and friendly. They are responsive and troubleshoot an issue from beginning to end. I appreciate the constant communication through Slack.
Although they are responsive, sometimes it does take some time to arrive at a solution (this happens rarely).
Opmerkingen: Because I have a monthly check-in with our account rep, we plan ahead and issues get resolved quickly and easily. While they make great use of automation, having a human contact makes a huge difference.
They allowed us to untether from being in an office to running a distributed workforce and know that all employees have access to reliable tech support. I can set up company-wide policies and report to/approval chains easily. And, I have a real person for an account manager
Because they are always evolving and working to make the product better, sometime new products are rolled out before they are fully debugged.
Finally. An end to fractional IT woes!
Opmerkingen: Electric pretty much solved our IT woes. Huge improvement in quality AND cost.
Electric has vastly improved IT service delivery and response time while cutting our cost by 40%. Fractional IT is not around when you need them and in the office when unneeded but Electric is always there to respond. We pursued SOC certification and Electric was integral to implementing requirements, rolling out new services, and documenting everything.
Does not assist with phone systems. Printer support can be spotty from offsite. There was a bit of short staffing on their special projects team for a while but they seem to be fixing that and it hasn't been a big issue.

Thank you for your review, Charles!
Effective (and Cost Effective) IT Support
Opmerkingen: It's like having a world-class technology team at your beck and call, but affordable.
Electric provides our company with remote tech support via Slack and MDM software, giving us quick-response answers and solutions to our IT needs. The service is equal to our better than our previous local solutions, but for a fraction of the monthly cost.
I haven't encountered anything that we're not liked, so far.

really easy to use. mostly communicate through Slack. saved us having an internal IT FTE
the response team can be long. usually it isn't but sometimes it takes more than a few min for them to respond.
Really good and professional ITservice
In most cases, responses are fast and helpful.
Sometimes the response time is too long.
