Mainstream Technologies’ Managed IT Services – Part 2

Mainstream Technologies Managed ServicesManaged IT Services is all about investing your budget in the most efficient way possible. If you consider the past three years, what did you spend on your IT? What are you spending today for hardware, software, contracts, IT management, and support costs (internal and external staff), system downtime, and the associated costs of lost productivity?

A managed service provider in many cases can align their contract to approximate your current spending rate. Although the costs may be similar (and in some cases less) you’ll benefit by moving to a proactive, planned, and managed environment that increases the quality and quantity of your uptime. You can resolve today’s challenges while eliminating future unplanned costs.
