Managed IT Services and the Help Desk — What’s the Difference?
You might be wondering: Aren’t IT managed services just another type of “help desk”?
Think of it like this: We’re always on call like a technical support center, but we offer more than troubleshooting services. We can also take responsibility for regularly maintaining your company’s network systems and for developing technology strategies to help your business thrive. In other words, instead of just answering any questions you have about IT issues or technology deployments, we take an active role in empowering your business through value-added services.
Break-Fix or Future Proof?
You might be used to calling in a technician only when your company has IT trouble. This put-out-the-fire approach is reactive, not proactive. If you rely on a troubleshooter only to fix something when it breaks, then you’re not aware of issues until they become obvious problems. By that point, they could be costly and time-consuming to solve, disrupting your flow of business. We can detect issues and prevent them from becoming problems. We can proactively manage and maintain your company’s whole network with as much dedication as a full-time in-house IT staff.
In effect, managed network services help future-proof your infrastructure. Implement key services to empower IT staff, detect problems and remediate problems immediately and leverage access to IT experts 24/7 — all covered under a “living contact” that grows with your business.
Do I need managed IT when I have an in-house staff?
Having someone on staff solely responsible for maintenance and strategy development is a proactive way to support your company. However, the nature of IT work is that sometimes there’s a lot to do, and other times not as much. But you still have to cover the salary of that employee, even when there’s less demand. It’s also hard for one person to know everything tech-related, considering how quickly technology changes.
What happens when your IT person gets sick, goes on vacation, or quits? Who covers for him/her? Having a team to manage your company’s network means you’ll always have someone available to help when you need it, and we’re not costing you overhead when you don’t. It’s a more effective way to use your resources.
The Managed Advantage
Your business relies on technology to be productive and competitive — without the right tech solutions and safeguards in place, you’re losing ground. By partnering with the right MSP company, meanwhile, you get a professional team dedicated to proactively maintaining your company’s IT infrastructure as well as plan for the future.
