Tip of the Week: Valuing Managed IT

Tip of the Week: Valuing Managed IT

It’s difficult to put a value on your organization’s technology solutions. While you might be tempted to assign a monetary value based on how much it all saves you, you also need to examine how much it costs you in the long term. Can you optimize your network even more than it currently is? Can you even keep track of the countless moving parts of your IT infrastructure? Managed IT might be able to help.

In the past, small businesses did everything they could to avoid IT maintenance, as they did not have in-house IT assistance available at a reasonable price. Businesses would only administer IT maintenance when it was absolutely necessary, but this brought with it countless other issues that stem from technology not receiving the aid needed to keep operations moving forward. The unfortunate reality is that the limitations placed on the budget might hinder your ability to provide your technology with adequate support and maintenance, putting your infrastructure’s longevity at stake.

The biggest difference between the break-fix IT and managed IT models is that managed IT aims to prevent downtime from breaking your budget. If your technology doesn’t work as intended, it’s costing you money in both repairs and work not getting done. This downtime can create problems in the long run, namely the incredible cost of issues that could have been prevented in the first place.

Managed IT actively keeps downtime to a minimum by carefully monitoring infrastructures for weak points and potentially fallible technology solutions. Businesses actually stand to save money by avoiding these issues in the first place, and since managed IT is generally leveraged on a month-by-month basis, it’s much more affordable and easier to fit into a budget. Ask yourself if it’s worth the small monthly payment to achieve peace of mind, and you’ll know for sure that managed IT is the way to go for your technology maintenance.

With Preferred by your side, you can accomplish great things with your business’ IT infrastructure. To learn more about how your organization can optimize its IT maintenance and management, reach out to us at 708-781-7110.
