How Managed IT Services Help SMBs Improve Operations

b2ap3_thumbnail_we_are_msp_400.jpgTechnology is an ever-growing part of today’s society, and skilled technicians are always in high demand. Nowadays, technology is so complex that it takes comprehensive and preventative maintenance to ensure that it continues working as intended. Innovators in the IT industry, like ourselves, have adopted a way to handle IT maintenance that helps SMBs like you better leverage your assets.


We’ll help your business differentiate break-fix IT from managed IT, and how the latter has significantly changed the industry.

How Break-Fix IT Works
The unfortunate truth of the business world is that many professionals who aren’t tech-savvy will continue to use their technology, even though it’s showing signs of degradation. This is a dangerous practice. When technology isn’t receiving necessary preventative maintenance, small issues can blossom into major problems that can no longer be ignored. Some business owners feel that putting off maintenance for as long as possible can save them money, but in the end, it winds up being much more expensive and risky.

Let’s use the automobile as an example. It works best when you provide the proper maintenance, like oil changes, tire replacements, and so on. Unfortunately, some people don’t take very good care of their cars, and what happens to them when their vehicles break down? More often than not, they pay a hefty fee for replacement parts and labor. In some cases, they might have to take a loan out to pay for an entirely new vehicle. These are expenses that can be prevented if the car receives the proper care throughout its life cycle.

How Managed IT Services Work
Break-fix IT may be designed to prolong the inevitable, but proactive managed IT services are designed to resolve issues as they become apparent, in an effort to save you money in the long run. Businesses that utilize managed IT services tend to outsource the responsibility of maintaining IT systems to third-party providers. The goal is to avoid major technology problems by resolving minor issues. For example, taking proper care of your server units and workstations can improve their lifespan, which means that you won’t have to replace them as often due to hardware failure.

The Benefits
Business owners have a lot on their plate, and they often don’t have enough time in the day to accomplish all of their goals. One of the biggest advantages of utilizing managed IT solutions is that you get back all of the time that your team would waste on wrestling with your technology solutions. Plus, replacing a critical piece of hardware before its time is up can be crippling to your budget, making it far more cost-effective to prevent problems rather than continuously replace failing technology.

Basically, the big difference between break-fix IT and proactive managed IT is the fact that you’ll be dealing with fewer technical hiccups due to regular maintenance and management. This leads to more uptime and more cost savings, allowing you to focus on what matters most: running your business.

If your team is ready to improve the way you handle technology, or you’re just sick of dealing with faulty equipment, Computerware can help. Our technicians can provide expert advice and care for your technology. To learn more, give us a call at (703) 821-8200.
