Why Managed Services Will Save You More Than Money

“Downtime
costs money.”

That’s no secret, but it doesn’t quite
capture the whole experience…you arrive to work in the morning, grab your
coffee knowing you’ve got a hectic day ahead, and are ready to dive in.

For some reason your computer can’t access
the database and neither can anyone else’s. You restart the server while
fielding calls left, right and center, but are unable to answer any client
queries. Your hands are completely tied…and now the server is beeping
furiously…what’s going on??!

You’re not just in crisis mode, you’re on
damage control as you call every tech you can think of, trying to find one who
can come NOW.

Not exactly the day you had planned.

The Break/Fix Days Are Gone

Previously, businesses only addressed their
IT needs when something broke. A few hours down meant little in the scope of
things. In today’s fast world, businesses rely heavily on IT and downtime just
isn’t an option.  Even the legalities of
simply restoring financial, legal or medical files after a breach raises
issues.

The cost of break/fix is now too high, both
financially and emotionally.

Simply put, your IT services are remotely
monitored and proactively managed by a professional, external business. Your
Managed Service Provider (MSP) runs regular diagnostics on equipment to
identify impending failure and resolves problems before they happen.

Benefits of Managed Services

Small to medium businesses in particular
benefit from managed services, because they don’t usually have an on-site
technician to oversee the multiple systems in use. By subscribing to a managed
service provider, businesses can have reduced labor costs, access to a
knowledge base, future-pacing, better data security and reduced downtime.
Businesses can also know exactly what their upcoming costs are and plan
accordingly.
