Slow computers. Email isn't working. People can't remember passwords. A variety of technology issues in an office can cause a big headache and a lot of disruption.
Ever tried working without email or on a really slow computer? It's extremely frustrating and nearly impossible to get any work done.
Fortunately, there's a way to prevent these technology issues and have a smooth and efficient workplace. It's called Managed IT Services.
Managed IT Services is a modern-day tech solution where a professional IT company manages all of your technology for your organization at a flat monthly rate. You won't have to deal with slow computers, worrying about who's going to fix an issue or how much the cost is going to be. You have an IT partner making your life easier by taking care of all of your technology for you. It's pretty much your personal IT department.
As an IT Managed Services Provider (MSP), Restech can be your IT partner. We help manage your technology, so that your business can increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve financially.
Here are 5 signs that your organization is ready for Managed IT Services.
1. No full time dedicated IT department or staff
Small and mid-sized businesses (SMB) often have office managers and administrative staff who have to pile on IT tasks on top of their responsibilities. Without a true IT background, this multi-tasking can lead to some serious gaps in the latest IT & cybersecurity developments. And if complex issues arise, this can become a nightmare of a problem.
A full-time 100% dedicated IT position may be too expensive. This is where Restech can help – with an MSP agreement we'll include all required IT services at a fraction of the cost of a full-time technician's salary. This allows you to gain the equivalent of an entire IT department with senior-level strategic consulting for a fixed monthly operating cost without a huge initial capital outlay.
2. Continuous or repetitive tech problems
When everything is working, your technology systems seem relatively simple; however, as the lifecycle of your assets matures and you begin to require frequent maintenance or replacement, the complexity of managing technology becomes apparent. Continuous tech problems have an impact on your business - it can affect productivity, profitability, and increase risk for both your organization and your clients.
Managed IT services will ensure you have a team of experts supporting your organization to address and resolve problems, repairs, replacements, and improvements. As a partner to your business, we'll also be proactive in strategically planning for future growth and change.
3. Overwhelmed tech staff
It's not uncommon for a growing business to require more support than current staff can handle. Even experienced IT pros can be overwhelmed trying to keep up with the full range and changing demands of a growing organization's technology.
As your IT partner, we bring the resources and industry insight you need to complement your current IT staff while scaling with you as you grow.
4. Insufficient and unpredictable IT budget
What is the price of technology? It's always changing based on the needs of your organization. From replacement laptops and desktops, to new servers and extra storage, to urgent security threats that can't be ignored, budgeting can be quite tricky for any organization.
Managed Services will ensure you have a flat-fee, monthly operating cost that delivers all your critical IT needs.
5. No strategic plan for ongoing needs
What are your IT priorities? What's your technology strategy? Ongoing technology improvements—email systems, servers, mobile devices, etc—require a big picture perspective and expertise to confidently determine the order and priorities for your strategic planning.
As a full suite IT & cybersecurity firm, we'll work to understand your needs and goals. Together, we'll execute a technology roadmap to implement the right IT solutions specific to your business.
