Answers to Your Questions

Why should a small business consider managed IT services?

Managed IT services can help small businesses:

  • Reduce overall IT costs.
  • Get expert and timely IT support.
  • Enhance cybersecurity.
  • Stay up-to-date with technology.
  • Focus on core business functions without IT distractions.

Isn’t outsourcing IT more suitable for larger companies?

Not necessarily. While large companies benefit from managed services, small businesses often see a proportionally higher impact, as they may not have the resources for a dedicated IT department. Managed services allow them to level the playing field and access the same expertise and technologies as their larger counterparts. Our clients range from 2 to 250+ users.

What can I expect in terms of costs?

Managed services are typically offered on a subscription-based model, where you pay a regular fee for specified services. The cost varies depending on service scope, technology used, and other variables. Generally, it’s designed to be more predictable and often more cost-effective than incident-based break/fix expenses.

What if my business has very specific IT needs?

We offer customized solutions tailored to the unique requirements of your business. It’s crucial to discuss and outline these needs during the initial consultation so we can work together to ensure your business has all the help it needs.
