Managed IT Services is where a company outsources all of their IT and computer network to a professional IT company to run, acting in place of an in house IT professional.
This approach works for small, medium and larger, international businesses, with a range of benefits available. Find our top six benefits below:
1. Reduced risk
With a professional IT company looking after all of your IT needs, there is a reduced risk to your business. This is because of their expert knowledge of the industry, compliance procedures and regulations, as well as security risks.
Here at Woodstock IT, all of our team are dedicated to ensuring your IT and computer network are safe from any issues or errors, no matter if they are critical or minor. This gives you peace of mind that your systems and files are safe and secure.
2. Better performance
As well as ensuring there are no security risks on your systems, with Managed IT Services, your chosen IT company will make sure your systems are running on the latest updates where appropriate. There is no risk that any of your systems are out of date and obsolete, or open to associated risks with having outdated software.
We monitor your systems using advanced tools and are able to identify and quickly implement new updates and technology that will help your business run more efficiently, keeping your files and software secure.
3. Access to IT professionals
One of the main benefits of outsourcing your IT needs is being able to access IT professionals with a wealth of knowledge. If you have any queries, you are able to contact your IT company and one of their fully qualified and knowledgeable members of staff will be able to help you.
Our team has a wide range of knowledge and expertise in a variety of areas, so no matter how complex your question is we will always be able to answer it.
4. Faster response time
