There comes a point in every businesses life when they need a computer guy. An IT specialist to set up a network, maintain computers or install programs for the staff. If they can get away with it, they will add the IT duties on to a current employee and expect them to take on those duties as well as their current ones. If they can’t, they might hire someone to maintain the network, but hiring a full-time IT person for a small business is an avoidable expense.
Obviously, these are not ideal solutions, but keeping costs within reason is one of the main goals of small business owners. Managed IT solutions, on the other hand, outsource the computer needs of a small company to a provider that is already conversant with network issues and whose sole purpose is to run and maintain computer networks for other companies.
More affordable than hiring a dedicated IT professional, safer than adding IT duties to a non-professional computer guy and able to keep up with all aspects of the computer network at a small business – managed IT solution companies are the best choice for most small businesses.
Managed IT services, like CIO Technologies in Tampa, provide small businesses in the Tampa Bay area with full support, remote and in-person diagnostics for problems and on-site service when necessary. They are also available for deployment services for major upgrades on computer networks. All for a reasonable monthly fee.
Removing a major headache for small business owners, managed IT services are becoming as important and necessary as, for example, accountants. Even if you can do the work, it makes more sense to hire someone who specializes in it. Keeping your computers and network up and running is worth more than the cost.
