Good Business Decisions Start with Data


Below is a list of what we view the benefits of IT managed services for small and medium businesses. As with all decisions you are weighing the risk against the reward; the cost verse the return on investment. Managed IT services offer many great benefits to SMB organizations that prefer to invest capital in other areas such as marketing. After about 200 users it becomes more cost effective to have IT personnel on staff. The theory is that having a single IT person represents an unacceptable risk. In any high-risk scenario having multiple options and backups is required. This is true whether defending against malware with a good disaster recovery plan or having several IT professionals on staff in case one quits, gets sick or killed or decides he/she deserves a pay raise and is not going to give you the password to the network until they get a raise.
