A proactive preventative approach to keeping your systems up
Our Managed Services focus is to keep your systems operational and available so that you can focus your efforts on the demands of growing your business, managing costs and increasing revenues. With our Managed IT Services, we provide your business with our highest level of support consisting of a flat fee annual support agreement. The plans below offer complete maintenance and Network Monitoring of your existing IT infrastructure and technical support for all of your staff. We optionally offer project hours for improvements to the IT infrastructure. Our most comprehensive plan includes Virtual CIO services.
Why is Outsourced IT More Cost Effective?
With a long-term, flat-fee structure we are no longer concerned about time because we are motivated to make your environment as stable as possible over the long-term. Second, it offers a very predictable cost structure. Finally, there is a built-in IT strategy element which ensures you are getting the most out of your IT dollars.
In today's economic climate, companies are focusing on the inefficiency of their small in-house IT departments, which are usually under-utilized and poorly managed. We have the expertise and cutting edge tools to manage your IT department professionally and at a lower cost so that you can focus on your business. With IT outsourcing, you get better support, lower IT costs, improved reliability, and more productivity from your employees.
