Swift Managed IT Services
Swift Systems' Impact on Businesses in a Nutshell
What Are Managed IT Services?
If you are working with an IT company under the traditional break/fix model, you know the pain of having misaligned interests. The IT company is usually paid on a time-and-materials basis, so the longer they take to fix your equipment, the more they get paid. You, on the other hand, want your systems fixed asap at the lowest cost possible to effectively solve the problem.
Managed IT services turns this on its head and aligns the interests of you and your IT provider. Payments are made on a fixed monthly basis regardless of what happens month to month and you have an experienced engineer that routinely comes by your office to get a first-hand look at your set up and fix any problems that arise. Because of this, your IT provider wants to keep your systems running 100% of the time, is incentivized to be proactive in IT maintenance, and more!
Take a look at some of the benefits working with Swift Systems can have to your company…
Consistent Pricing and the Ability to Budget
With a fixed monthly expense, you know what you are going to pay next month to keep your IT infrastructure up and running. Not only will your accounting department love the consistency from a budgetary standpoint, but it will help you sleep better at night knowing that if you run into a IT problem you won’t need to pay thousands to have someone come out to take a look at it.
Equipment does, however, need to be periodically replaced. There is really nothing you can do to avoid it. That being said, with a company that is routinely at your office checking in on your infrastructure, you will know when these need to be replaced. Instead of paying thousands of dollars to replace a server that dies out-of-the-blue, your engineer will be able to tell you in advance that it is reaching the end of its life.
You Get a Team of Experts with Diverse Expertise
Whether your company has a small IT department or none at all, it is difficult to have the expertise to fix every problem that arises in an efficient manner. Everyone has a specialty, and there are always IT issues that fall outside of that specialty. That is where Swift comes in. You have a dedicated engineer that is backed up by alternates, a help desk team, on-call emergency engineering staff, and Virtual CIO services that offer IT strategy, planning, and advice. This allows your current team to focus on completing those big projects, or just takes IT off your plate all together depending on your needs.
Proactive Maintenance Stopping Problems Before They Happen
As previously mentioned, a big advantage of managed IT services is the proactive maintenance. Swift’s goal is to maintain 100% uptime for your business, and the only way to do that is proactive maintenance. Reacting to emergencies can not only bring your IT infrastructure down for long periods of time, but it expensive. Because you pay a fixed fee, these emergencies would fall on your MSP provider. This is yet another example of the alignment of interests that come with managed IT services
The Scalability Your Business Needs
Growth-oriented companies like yours need assurances that your IT infrastructure can keep up with your growth. Swift can work with you to figure out the level of IT support your business needs, as well as grow alongside your company as those needs change.
