At VBS, we also like to supply information you can use to make the right decisions. That’s why we’ve put together some tips on how to get the most from your managed IT services provider.
Cheaper Isn’t Better - Value is
Aim for value to get your small business to where it needs to go. Choosing the best service is about much more than just looking for a cheap price. Outstanding providers understand technology but also cater to your budget concerns.
There are lots of managed service providers to choose from. It can be overwhelming and confusing to choose the right one. Look for a company that’s willing to talk about your business goals, as well as budget. It’s this kind of personalized touch that can make a difference.
What Tools Do They Have in Their Managed IT Services Kit?
When it comes to managed IT services, there are several things you need to be looking for. These are a few of the boxes you need to check.
- Proactive 24/7 monitoring is a service that monitors your technology to alert of issues before they become serious problems. This service dramatically reduces downtime and improves productivity.
- Cyber security protection is a critical service to protect your business data and keep your business safe. Hackers target small businesses because they are vulnerable and typically do not have proper protection.
- IT Consulting. The company you’re thinking about doing business with should have a consulting department too. As your business grows you might need advice on where to go and what to do as far as software and technology systems to grow your business. Getting everything under one roof is cost efficient.
