Managed IT Services Brings Immense Value

Managed IT Services Brings Immense Value

How many devices and technology solutions does your organization have to manage on a day-to-day basis? More often than not, small businesses have a limited quantity to work with for IT services, whether it’s a budget that’s too small or a workforce that’s too stretched. The problem is that IT troubles wait for no one, so you have to do everything you can to prevent them--even if it means asking for help from others.

There is often a stigma associated with asking for help, but it’s important to remember that nobody knows everything, and IT is no exception. If you don’t have an internal IT department for any range of factors (geographic location, lack of qualified workers, limited budget, etc.), your business might have trouble guaranteeing the type of IT support needed to ensure a sustainable future, but small businesses have more trouble than large corporations with practically endless resources.

In the past, small businesses relied on break-fix IT to make ends meet. They would try to save time and money by only repairing technology when it needed to be repaired. Unfortunately, this practice led to increased downtime, as issues that could have been resolved easily were instead exacerbated due to being ignored for too long, adding even more cost to the downtime incident--and that’s without mentioning the costs associated with replacing faulty devices or components.

On the other hand, preventative managed IT services provided by a managed service provider give businesses a more affordable alternative that can mitigate downtime and significantly reduce operational expenses. This kind of IT wouldn’t normally be possible, but thanks to the professional technicians at Decatur Computers Inc., your organization can leverage quality technology maintenance without the immense up-front costs associated with hiring new employees or shelling out for hardware replacements.

There should never be any shame in outsourcing, especially with a technical job like the ones done by managed service providers. It is not only a great way to shore up weak points in your organization’s operations, but also an excellent way to supplement current resources. Here are just some of the services offered by a managed service provider like Decatur Computers Inc.:

  • Server hosting
  • Cloud hosting and management
  • Data backup and disaster recovery
  • Email hosting
  • Network maintenance, monitoring, and management
  • Security monitoring and deployment
  • And more!

When you get creative with IT solutions, a managed service provider can find a way to improve, manage, host, or maintain just about anything you want to do. Whether it’s deploying a complicated software solution or investing in new hardware that will make operations more streamlined, a managed service provider can work you through the process from the planning stages to continued maintenance and management.

Decatur Computers Inc. can be a pillar of support for businesses that either don’t have IT assistance or simply want to supplement internal resources. To learn more about what we can do for your business, reach out to us at 217-475-0226.
