Is Managed IT Right for Your Business?
Technology plays a huge role in day-to-day operations for most businesses. Therefore it’s important that you not only have the right technologies, but that those technologies remain fully operational at all times. Living by the traditional break/fix IT service model can help you get by, but adopting the proactive approach of Managed Services will allow you to resolve IT issues before they negatively impact your business.
Without a Managed Services Provider, the responsibility and risk associated with managing your IT systems rests on your shoulders. If something goes wrong or breaks – like your server crashes or a workstation gets infected with malware – it’s up to you to take notice and contact an IT support provider to get it fixed. By that time, it’s already too late. The damage has already been done by the time you notice an IT problem. Business operations have been disrupted by the need to contact IT support, productivity has decreased and data has been lost. Therein lies the risk of the reactive break/fix IT support method.
Think About How You Currently Handle Your Business’ IT Needs
Ask yourself these questions:
- Has an employee with slightly above-average computer knowledge been inadvertently designated as your “go to” person for IT support?
- Does the appointed “tech” person spend more time troubleshooting & resolving computer issues than they do on their actual job?
- Does the idea of hiring a dedicated IT Support Professional at the annual cost of $40-80k simply not fit into your company budget?
If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the questions above, chances are your company could benefit from Managed IT. Give us a call 858-268-4774 or contact us online to learn more about our Managed IT services or to get a free network consultation for your business network.
