Managed IT Services is a proactive approach to your IT problems. It allows your IT provider to keep an eye on your IT at all times and fix problems as they pop up and avoid annoying downtime. Much like a car going to the mechanic – you should book your car in for a scheduled service rather than wait for the car to break down before getting it fixed.
As small businesses grow they start to rely on their IT networks and hardware, this creates the need for your technology to be running at its best. This gives business owners peace of mind knowing someone is looking after the IT needs of their business. The other advantage of Managed Services is it’s a fixed monthly fee which allows business owners to budget their IT expenses and have no unexpected bills.
So does your small business need managed IT?
Even small businesses with small budgets can benefit from having a managed service provider. If you were to wait until your network crashes or for a server to go down this can cost your business alot of downtime which results in loss of revenue or unproductive staff. By being proactive about your IT Management you can potentially avoid the problems completely.
Many business owners try to manage the IT themselves or put an employee in charge of fixng problems that arise. By doing this it is taking too much time away from your own work or your employee’s work. Its very beneficial to outsource this taks to a Managed Service Provider and leave you or your employee to focus on work.
