When looking at IT support, there are two ways that you can approach it. You can opt for a reactive approach, which would be like going to see your dentist if you suddenly develop toothache. Or, you can take a more proactive approach which we can liken to having routine check-ups with your dentist to catch any issues before they become a real problem.
Similarly, by having the same attitude towards your business’s IT support as your health, you can keep your business and your IT systems working at their best and can foresee any potential issues or required investments to keep your IT int eh right place to support your business. A Good IT support service will provide 24/7/365 Monitoring and Alerting for servers, Workstations and Network Devices. This means that any issues will be quickly identified and rectified before they become more serious.
Take a look at some of the other benefits of proactive IT support:
- More cost effective
Proactive IT support might sound more expensive, but it often saves money in the long run. A good provider will bill you using a fixed monthly pricing model, allowing your business to plan knowing costs will be consistent. In contrast, if you one day notice problem that no one has previously picked up on, this could be more costly by the time the issue has escalated, is diagnosed, gets fixed, and you pay for the call out fees.
- Planning for the Future
Having IT support on a rolling basis means you are always ahead of the game. Providers will be able to help you analyse your current IT set up and suggest changes or a plan of action for the future.
- Efficient Disaster Recovery
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as ironclad IT support but if things do go wrong you can be assured that with an expert IT provider, they will have inbuilt disaster recovery plans. Allowing you to get up and running again in good time, without any significant loss of important data.
