This is a common misconception many business owners have. Understandably, adding another monthly fee to your business expense is something most owners want to limit and do very selectively. However, when you break down the expense of an IT emergency, most business owners discover a Managed Services Plan actually costs less in the long run.
If you wait until something breaks before you get assistance, you are forced to be reactive and the cost of an emergency fix can be astronomical. Whereas a Managed Service Plan is designed to prevent major issues from happening in the first place. It’s not fool-proof — nothing is — but in most instances, we catch problems before they wreak havoc on your business, and you don’t have to waste precious time when problems do occur trying to figure out who to call.
Additional cost-saving benefits of a Managed Services Plan include minimal downtime and improved employee productivity. Downtime is the enemy of every business. It means decreased sales, frustrated customers and paying employees who are unable to do their work. Ultimately, a Managed Services Plan helps you run your business efficiently while keeping your technology costs reasonable and fixed.
