What are Managed Services?

Managed Services are how IT feels in an ideal world. Everything running smoothly, proactive diagnosis of networking issues and preventative maintenance being carried out regularly, giving your employees the access to the technology they need, where they need it without any frustrations getting in the way. Fabric IT offer the complete managed services package.

Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at some of our case studies.

What does a managed service provider do?

We offer support around your organisations entire IT needs. Support can range from the infrastructure and cabling, right the way through to end-user support and produce a package that works for you. The support we offer includes things such as SLA’s for any support requests, monitoring and checks regularly over the IT estate.

Managed services can be a more cost-effective option than hiring an in-house IT staff outright. The main benefit this gives companies is that they are not reliant on one in house employee. They can have the support of an experienced provider with highly trained engineers for a similar cost if not cheaper.

Some managed service providers will choose specialised areas that are more suited to them and their target audience, such as managed print. Here at Fabric IT, we look at the specific needs of each customer and advise on the best solution for their IT management.

The list of our expertise is endless but includes:

Keeping up to date:

One of the primary responsibility of a managed service provider is to keep our customers up to date with the latest technology and securities. We encourage all our customers to drive positive change through IT and reap the benefits it can add to their daily tasks. Look for a managed service provider that meets your business aspirations and needs.

Here are my top tips for choosing the best-managed service provider for your business.
