Onsite Assessment Process
Dove Assessment Onsite Steps
Use this as a general guide of steps to complete. Communicate with DoveIT team on a Teams call and send all relevant photos and files to the Teams chat.
Important: you cannot share files or photos with a chat/meeting if a non-Dove user is invited. Please use internal chat/meeting links only, or it won’t work!
If you are provided a floorplan, make notes of locations for follow up. Send a photo of the floorplan and notes before you leave.
Sales and Service should be together for all of this portion of the process.
Take photos of cameras, door access controls, wireless access points, network switches on desks, behind computers, as you see them deployed.
Ensure you can enter all network and IT closets, and locations of servers. Sometimes you need to use someone’s computer to remotely log into a server, so let’s look at the main server area before remote connection for assessment.
Call DoveIT On Teams
Once you have access to the server room, the service technician should call DoveIT on Teams to begin the network, ISP, and main IT room overview.
Photos will be taken later; this is just a general identification process. Ensure we have access to return to this room and any other networking closets/locations.
Remote Login To Server
Go to dove.support in a web browser on the server, and download our remote support tool. Once connected, Sales will move to an office or conference room to complete the online form portion of the assessment.
