Something we say all the time to clients is: IT isn’t expensive. IT disasters are. In a word, it’s why we are so passionate about managed IT support.
If you own a business, you likely have a budget. And we know that when you have a budget, you need to prioritize spending and sometimes, managed IT support is one of those things that gets put on the chopping block.
We get it. Managed IT support isn’t cheap.
However, there are so many benefits to having managed IT support. In addition to saving you headaches in the event of a data breech, outages and other connectivity issues, it can have a range of other benefits, like:
- Improved security and compliance (crucial in the health care field)
- A more efficient and dependable system
- Strong return on investment (ROI)
- Updated technology
If you currently have IT staff, they are probably working hard on your systems and not working so hard on larger projects and concepts. Maybe they are having issues handling the workload (it can be a lot!).
Working with a company that provides managed IT support doesn’t eliminate your need for in-house IT. But it can add valuable expertise and support to your current staff, as well as enhance your business, make it more productive and cut down on network issues.
One of the issues we see, especially in the health care field, is that companies aren’t necessarily as compliant as they should be. If you have employees with mobile devices, are they really being as secure as they should transmitting data? Security breeches happen and they can be devastating.
Managed IT support can help to ensure that everyone in your company is trained in security and compliance issues and that your systems are locked down so a breech doesn’t happen.
Lastly, when was the last time your system was properly maintained and backed up? Can’t remember? Was it a week ago? A month?
If you don’t know or can’t remember, that’s OK. But you should be looking into a fix for it ASAP.
Having managed IT support can make these sorts of worries obsolete, as you have more important things to worry about.
