Managed Services vs. Break Fix Mentality
Managed services is a better way that a business deal with their technology. Instead of following
the old-school tradition of break-fix (literally meaning wait until the server, desktops or other critical networking devices
fail, then scramble to fix them), a business operating with a managed service focuses on the prevention of these issues before
they disrupt employees, management and/or clients.
The Real Benefits of Managed Services
Put in simple terms - one of the biggest benefits of Managed Services is discovering and fixing problems before they can negatively affect your business.
A well maintained, proactively serviced computer network will always run better than the alternative. With proactive network monitoring, patch management,
and desktop optimization performed on a regular basis, you will notice a tremendous difference in operations… and you will reap the benefits of preventing fires,
rather than fighting them.

Why is Break-fix no longer good enough?
A Break-fix maintenance service fixes problems as they crop up. This means that something needs to go wrong before you receive
any service, resulting in an inevitable reduction in IT system performance while you wait for the problem to be fixed.
If you fall behind in keeping up with things such as backups, patches and security, the odds greatly increase that you’ll
face an IT outage or another problem down the road that will negatively impact your business and you will likely face substantial
productivity and revenue losses as a result.
