Get Started with Faster Support
How Dynamic Consultants Group Manages Support
Dynamic Consultants Group provides Tier 3 Support for companies displaced by Microsoft’s transition away from Premier Support over to Unified Support. Many Customers feel that Unified Support is not enough. The lack of a dedicated TAM (Technical Account Manager) for customers accustomed to that is a hard switch. We take a different approach. Our Tier 3 technicians are Microsoft certified and can take on even the most complex technical issues.
We break our support offering down into three unique categories that make us a market leader in supporting customers, including Fortune 500 clients. We make choosing a Microsoft Premier Support Alternative simple.

Introducing an Industry First: TTE SLA - Time to Engineer
Microsoft and even some partners can use SLAs to offer fantastic response times, either with auto-responders or with basic support. At DCG, we’re adding an all-new SLA to our offering. The “Time to Engineer” SLA. Meaning you have a price guarantee on how fast you be connected to a specialist engineer to solve your problem. Move beyond just getting someone generic. Start tracking how fast you can get on the phone with someone who knows your issue. It’s all part of our First Problem Resolution philosophy for how we operate Premier Support.
Our three pillars are not the only things that keep us on the bleeding edge of technology support and a viable alternative to Microsoft Premier Support. We focus on building teams of technical certified architects, engineers, and developers on staff to ensure that you have actual single case resolution when you have a critical issue.

Why Use a Partner for Support vs. Microsoft Unified Support?
Making the decision about Microsoft Unified Support or using an alternative is a big decision, here are a few of the pros and cons associated with using Microsoft Unified Support. There are more than these three, however, we wanted to keep the list short. Contact our team to learn more and see how your company could save with DCG.
Pros of Unified Support
With Microsoft, you get a single vendor, a direct link to product engineers, and more than 20 years of enterprise relationship experience you can rely on.
Microsoft engineers incorporate data collection, diagnostic checks, incident tracking, and root cause analysis into support to save you time.
You have access to as-needed consults with Microsoft engineers, and 500+ Managed IP services help you achieve the outcomes you need to succeed.
Cons of Unified Support
Microsoft Consulting Services uses a broad network of subcontractors (DCG is one of them), meaning your support experience ranges depending on the day and depending on which subcontractor you are getting. Tata, Wipro, and Cognizant are the majority of Microsoft support resources. There are even US-based support companies that subcontract their support out to third parties. With Dynamic Consultants Group, you can rest assured your team is not sourced to 3 or 4 companies, but we’re one unified team.
Slow SLA for non Premier Support customers; this means you will have to settle for a 4-8 hours SLA unless you’re a performance tier unified support customer. With Dynamic Consultants Group, you are guaranteed a 15-minute response, with most of our customers seeing a 3-5 minute average response time.
There is no Tier 3 support without additional costs. If the issue is Microsoft’s fault, you will still need to pay additional costs to escalate to a tier 3 support agent, increasing the already expensive cost of Unified Support. If you are a core unified support customer, there is no tier 3 support at all. With Dynamic Consultants Group, you will have access to the best tier 3 support engineers available. We will manage the escalations on your behalf without you needing to manage the escalation request. Very few of our tickets need escalation to Microsoft as our in-house dedicated support engineers can resolve 99.7% of cases without Microsoft, further reducing your support costs.
