IT Managers Spread Thin?

Information Technology is a critical and often confusing part of your business operations – which is why great IT support makes all the difference.

 Situation

Often these are individuals who inherited the management position and are the tech staff and management. They are expected to handle ALL IT management and fix the technical problems.

  • Common Statements
    • “I just want to do my job but am always being pulled into meetings.”
    • “I am constantly stuck firefighting/triage and don’t have time to plan.”
    • “I haven’t taken a vacation in years.”

OCIO consulting queries:

  • If you could magically get rid of one technical problem, what would it be?
  • Do you have a strategy for technology or is it ad-hoc and are you always behind?
  • Do you have CapEx constraints (money, staff, or time) to get services into production, prohibiting you from executing on a much needed IT Project?
  • Are you looking to make your business more Agile?

As technology becomes more and more integral to the way businesses do business, making sure you have the right technology in place becomes more and more important. When you count on technology for everything that you do, you quickly find yourself with a complex infrastructure that can be tricky to manage successfully. Not only do you need to be sure you have the right technology solutions in place to suit the specific needs of your unique business, but you need to be able to keep that technology running smoothly around the clock.

That need to manage and maintain increasingly complicate Information Technology is the reason why businesses of all sizes are turning to outsourced IT support from a Managed Services Provider.

Managed Services Providers (MSPs) act as your business’ complete IT department, handling your entire IT infrastructure from top to bottom. Their team of highly trained and certified professionals is there to help by taking over day to day IT responsibilities from your staff, or stepping in to support your in-house IT personnel by adding specialized expertise to your existing setup.

The goal of managed IT services is to take the stress out of your business technology. You’ll always have someone to turn to with your IT questions, and a team of technicians will be there to fix any issues that crop up and actively work to keep disruptions and downtime to a minimum. Most importantly, unlike working with a break/fix IT contractor, you’ll be working with the same people each and every time you need assistance. An MSP takes the time to get to know your business and your staff, offering guidance and support we know will help you based on what your specific business needs.

An MSP gives you all the advantages of a fully-staffed in-house IT department at a fraction of the cost, with a range of services available for a low, predictable monthly fee. Not only do manage IT services take the guesswork out of your technology, but they also take the guesswork out of budgeting for your technology.
