An Analogy

If you take care of your car and do scheduled maintenance such as oil changes, tune ups, tire rotations, inspections, etc., your car will run a long time with very few problems and the repair costs will be at a minimum. On the other hand, if you neglect your vehicle, it’ll become a money pit. It’s the same with computers. Ongoing, scheduled maintenance reduces problems and keeps the equipment functioning longer, reducing expenses and helping your employees and business to be more productive. Make sense, right?

 Computer Support Services come in two flavors: Break-fix and Managed IT Services. Here’s the difference:

Break-fix

  • Call for service only when something breaks first
  • Long, Unplanned Downtime
  • Expensive Emergency Repairs
  • Hard To Budget For
  • Lost Employee Productivity
  • Customer Dissatisfaction
  • Risks The Loss Of Customer Business

Managed IT Services

  • Systems Monitored And Proactively Maintained
  • Little or No Downtime
  • Reduces/Eliminates Emergencies
  • One Low Monthly Payment – Easy To Budget For
  • Little Or No Loss Of Employee Productivity
  • Reduces/Eliminates Customer Dissatisfaction Due To Downtime
  • Reduces/Eliminates Loss Business Due To Downtime

Managed Services just makes more sense. If you maintain your equipment on a regular basis and constantly monitor how they’re working, you can immediately service the equipment when problems first arise, which are most likely to be small, BEFORE they become bigger, more involved issues later on. The result — very little or no down time.

Managed Services Is More Cost Effective Than Break-fix Over Time

Most business owners don’t like the monthly fee, thinking that it’s cheaper to call a technician only when something breaks. But, when they do an in-depth analysis taking into account the dollar impacts of downtime, lost productivity and sales opportunities, and possible lost business because of their inability to service customers when their systems are down, break-fix suddenly becomes a whole lot more expensive.

With Managed Services our business goals are aligned—when you’re having issues we’re both losing money because we can’t charge you to fix it!  Not so with Break-fix. You’re billed for each incident regardless of how many times you had the same issue. Your Break-fix guy wants you to have problems so he can bill you!

By monitoring and maintaining your IT systems, chronic computer problems become a thing of the past. Just think of the stress reduction for yourself and staff when everything just works the way it’s supposed to. And, when a problem occurs, we will usually know about it before you do and will already be working on solving the problem, many times before you even call. That’s called efficiency!
