Your Co-Managed IT Questions Answered
With co-managed IT services, you’ll have a reliable partner on hand who can support and enhance your hardworking existing IT team. By engaging co-managed IT services to take care of what you may not have even realized were potential problems, you will save money in the long run. Thanks to proactive co-management, you’ll find your business saving crucial funds that would have otherwise been spent on fixes such as repair bills or replacement fees. We work alongside your team, delivering reliable and efficient IT support.
We serve any industry; however, we specialize in institutions such as nonprofits, small businesses, financial institutions, manufacturing, and the healthcare industry.
If you’re unsure whether co-managed IT services could be beneficial for you, consider:
- The size of your IT team and their current volume of work
- If you’re fixing more IT problems than you’re preventing
- If your staff are frustrated with seemingly constant computer issues
- If you’re fully protected against possible cyber attacks
Choosing the right partner for your co-managed IT service is key to running operations smoothly. Before you start your search, take stock of your existing operations and how they’re running. Make a list of the services you’re confident your team can provide and where you could use extra assistance. Once you start your search, look for a co-managed service partner who:
- Delivers an easily-understandable contract with all of the relevant information clearly outlined
- Can perform the services you require
- Has the technology and equipment to carry out your requests
- Has a clear plan for communication
- Has or is willing to implement emergency protocols
- Aligns with your business goals and values
- Has excellent reviews or strong referrals
- Is proficient with their technology and past strategies they’ve implemented
- Is flexible and can adapt to new projects or issues easily
- Is competent with updating tickets timely and accurately
We provide ongoing support and services both on-site and remotely, depending on the situation. While every situation is different, we focus on helping businesses by providing preventative measures. This way, we can assist with stopping threats in their tracks and managing them before they can cause severe or even irreparable damage.
Even when you have a well-informed in-house IT team, these talented industry professionals can easily become overwhelmed with the amount of work businesses require. Many IT managers could benefit from extra support, which is where co-managed IT services come in. Whether there’s an unexpected uptick in demand, a sudden increase in projects, or an employee or two on leave, things can change quickly. However, what doesn’t change is your need for fast, efficient, and accurate IT solutions.
Co-managed IT services allow businesses to decide which IT services they should keep in-house and which they should outsource. IT services is a broad term but generally refers to things like network security, remote support, software as a service (SaaS), and hardware installation and management, among many other services.
We can help with services, including:
- Managed Computer— Windows
- Managed Computer— Mac
- Managed User
