The Value of Managed Services
Managed services are the fastest growing segment of the technology services industry, but a lot of people don’t understand what managed services are, or the benefits they bring.
Managed services provide ongoing operational monitoring and management of a customer’s network devices and infrastructure. Instead of a customer’s in-house network operations team tackling this burden, managed service providers (MSPs) perform the proactive monitoring of the customer’s environment. Unlike technical support, which in many cases is a reactive type of break-fix service, managed services are inherently proactive.
For the customer, being able to focus on innovation and their own customers’ satisfaction is a business outcome well worth the cost of managed services. That is the most beneficial outcome that we offer: Our customers are freed up to do what they do best, and they leave the network problems to us, which, by the way, is what we do best! Full article.

If a network fails at a critical moment in a business, there may be no backups and staff might lose hours trying to recreate valuable documents.
