As a business owner, we know that you have other things to do besides worry about information technology support and services. You may even wonder what’s the proper way to go about managed IT business services. But as our dependence on technology increases, so must the way we approach IT related issues.
If you’re looking to streamline your IT services, cut costs and preserve peace of mind, consider the following reasons to use managed IT business services.
Chances are your company uses many different devices, software, and networks. Managed IT business services can consolidate all your security efforts to make sure software is installed properly and updates and backups are performed automatically on each device. Our constant monitoring service ensures the highest level cyber security.
Maximize Your Time
If you have an internal IT department, things like system outages, security breaches, and large-scale updates can have a negative effect on your business’ productivity. With managed IT business services, there is less downtime when disaster strikes.
Proactive IT Services
Managed IT business service providers take a proactive approach to all things technology, as opposed the break-fix approach. Both the business and the service provider alike are incentivized to prevent technical issues that interrupt productivity because they cost both parties time and money.
In the long run, managed IT business services have proven to be more cost-effective. An internal IT department’s budget includes things like staff training, resources, payroll and network infrastructure can add significant expenses to your business. With flat-fees and predictable bills, managed IT business services can trim your business’ budget.
Why should I use managed IT business services?
As a business owner, data is an essential part of your day-to-day operations. Which means data storage and backup is even more crucial for you than it is for the average individual. These days, sensitive client information, historical data, financial records and more are all stored digitally, and data loss could be catastrophic to the future of your company. With 140,000 hard drive crashes each week, the risk of data loss looms large for businesses.
GCComp provides clients with a customized backup plan for their business and implements strategies to provide solutions that protect data daily, as well as a recovery plan for potentially lost data. Remember, it is far less costly and damaging to protect your data now through backup solutions than it is to try to recover it after.
