Managed IT Services
What is it?
Managed services let you offload specific IT operations to an outside service provider, whom assumes ongoing responsibility for monitoring, managing and/or problem resolution for selected systems, operations, and services on your behalf.
Offloading routine infrastructure management to an experienced managed services professional lets you concentrate on running your business, with fewer interruptions due to IT issues.
Why Should You Care?
Just like larger companies, small businesses need technology to operate efficiently and to compete effectively. But as reliance on IT grows, the resources to support an increasingly complex IT environment may not. In many small businesses, resources are scarce, and IT resources even more so. Resources and staff can be quickly overwhelmed with day-to-day responsibilities, and maintaining the IT Infrastructure that the business depends on up is left neglected.
Falling behind with things such as backups, patches, updates, and security, greatens the odds that you’ll face an unexpected outage, or other problem that can mean significant down-time, or loss of ROI, negatively impacting your business. It could be anything from a down e-mail server to a loss off rendered assets or other footage. Even one lost day lost can equal substantial revenue losses as a result.
