Traditional IT vs Managed IT

Not convinced a Managed IT solution is right for your organization? Below, we outline the significant benefits of Managed IT — benefits you can't replicate with a traditional IT department or break-fix support model. These benefits are across the board, from improvements in productivity and security to proactive monitoring and maintenance that reduces downtime and risks of failure.

IT Productivity

  • Systems are regularly optimized automatically so issues don’t occur; they’re prevented with ongoing “checks” and resolved immediately.
  • Proactive identification of equipment nearing the end of its lifecycle means no downtime due to failed or outdated equipment
  • Automatic alerts when computers have issues keep equipment and employees working at peak performance
  • Cloud computing and instant offsite data recovery means no time or effort searching for “lost” files
  • Available tools and solutions enhance productivity and streamline processes
