Getting started
The service is self-provisioned. Once the call-off agreement is signed and the commencement date agreed the following process will be followed:
• Set up for each user can be done completely remotely without the need for IT support.
• Each user will receive an invite link, once they follow the link and set their private password, they will be ready to go – as quickly as that!
• The “Office Manager” within SpeechLive will let their CloudCoCo know their workflow requirements (who types for who etc) so that can be set up ahead of Users receiving their invite links. If the workflow ever changes, or staff change, this can be easily amended throughout your subscription.

Full onsite or remote training is available and is charged at the SFIA rate card. User documentation and online training videos are also available.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
CloudCoCo has a fully documented ISO9001 and ITIL aligned change control process, all changes completed by CloudCoCo will be discussed with the Service Desk Team Leader and Technical Lead before a full task plan, backout plan, risk and impact assessment is completed. This information will be documented in templated format and provided to the Primary contact with effected customers and if required, the customers Change Management team. For a chance to progress, approval from a specified and agreed number of contacts must be received.
Vulnerability management type
Vulnerability management approach
Critical server updates are assessed immediately against the impact/risk. Where required an emergency change is immediately raised and implemented. Software updates/patching is implemented directly by Philips Speech live minimising any delays. We actively monitor Microsoft's partner portal to identify any emerging threats and Philips SpeechLive remain responsible for updating the core service.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
The underlying Microsoft Service employs sophisticated software-defined service instrumentation and monitoring that integrates at the component or server level, the datacenter edge, our network backbone, Internet exchange sites, and at the real or simulated user level, providing visibility when a service disruption is occurring and pinpointing its cause. Proactive monitoring continuously measures the performance of key subsystems of the services platform against the established boundaries for acceptable service performance and availability. When a threshold is reached or an irregular event occurs, the monitoring system generates warnings so that operations staff can address the threshold or event.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Our Incident Management process is based around ITIL best-practice. Incident Management is the process by which we track all faults and service requests.
Incidents are categorised based on the incident type, severity and the impact on the client’s operations. The severity governs the rate at which an incident is progressed through the relevant support functions and the level of visibility which it is afforded across the organisation.
Reports can be provided via email for free or face to face in line with the SFIA rate card.
