IT Managed Services
There are many companies and organizations who try to manage their own networks, servers, workstations, maintenance and repairs,
applications and websites. This is commendable and may work for a short time but what happens when a major issue happens? What about
security breaches which are happening more and more often? What about data loss, disaster recovery or overall design and cost savings?
What about maintenance contracts, inventory/asset management or failing hard drives that have all your critical data to run your business?
What about when the business grows? It will continue to be more and more challenging to stay on top of everything. It’s not just the
thought of keeping everything running. What about preparing for the future?
These are just a few of the areas of concern but there are many others on the list. As a company, have you thought about an overall
IT strategy that will keep the business running with high reliability but also save you money? This is just the beginning of the questions
you should be asking yourself.
Lets use one example as described above – data loss. When a business loses data or customer records how do they recover the data? Do they
have a full proof backup strategy or DR plan? Are the processes and procedures in place to restore that critical data? What if a critical
workstation or server goes down or has a major hardware failure? Some businesses can be down for hours or even days depending on how bad the
situation is. Statistics show that when disaster strikes, such as data loss, most companies will go out of business in one to five years. This
is terrible to say the least but something that can be easily avoided.

The Top Benefits of IT Managed Services
- Control IT Costs
We don’t want to give away too much here especially to our competitors but if you contact us to schedule a FREE consultation
we will explain our strategy to saving you money. There are many ways to save including automation, consolidation, design and strategic planning
to name a few.
- Reduce Risk
Every business has a certain amount of risk. Financial conditions, competition, markets, rules and regulations and technology all play into that
risk. Having a managed service provider with years of experience will assume and manage most of these risks for you. They understand compliance
and have specific knowledge and expertise in the world of information technology.
- Reduce Labor Costs
Hiring and training an IT staff can be very expensive, and temporary employees don't always live up to your expectations. Outsourcing lets you
focus your human resources where you need them most.
- Focus On Your Core Business
When it comes to small to medium sized businesses, owners know that they have limited time and resources. How can they focus on IT and also
focus on their business. An IT provider will help your business with complex IT decisions and issues so that your precious time can be better
- Become More Efficient and Competitive
Organizations that try to perform their IT Services in-house will find themselves spending hours, days, weeks or even months troubleshooting an
issue or maybe researching a solution for a design or configuration. Businesses doing this will fall behind on the core business tasks and spend
more time and money which increases overall costs..
- IT Professionals with Experience and Certified
IT Professionals must have years of experience as well as certifications. How do you know an employee is qualified? It’s important for you to look
for an IT provider who has many years of experience and has leading industry certifications like Cisco, VMware, HP, IBM, A+ or Microsoft.
- Keep Pace with New Technology
An experienced IT service provider will have the resources to start projects right away. Trying to tackle these same projects in-house could take
weeks or months just to get started. New people may need to be hired, trained and supported in order to get them positioned to start the project.
An IT service provider will usually start the project quickly, implement at a rapid pace and can pull from a deep experienced staff to complete the
project on time and within budget.
- Network Security and Compliance
As security breaches are becoming more and more frequent, network security and compliance becomes very crucial to any business. All small to medium
sized businesses should implement PCI security standards and work to maintain those standards. What if you have PII data on your network? Is your
firewall up to date? Do you have a DMZ installed? Do you audit your Workstations and Servers? Many businesses have many ways of performing transactions
today but there are risks involved and due diligence is required. An experienced managed services company will be familiar with the necessary compliance
standards and IT security to protect those transactions as much as possible and minimize the risks associated with maintaining client data, credit card
numbers, sensitive information and the like.
- Managed Services Options and Simplicity
A good managed services provider should have a few options for their services such as “a la carte” or a complete package that covers everything within
your network. This allows your business to try a specific service and if you’re satisfied, purchase more in services in the future. This also allows
you to budget for these services as your business grows.
