Why Every Business – Big and Small – Needs Managed Services

Managed Services
9/7/2016

It goes without saying that computers are a major part of running most businesses. From managing accounting and payroll to tracking inventory and shipping dates, computers handle a wide range of tasks and, for the most part, all of those tasks have one thing in common: data. The goal of managed services isn’t just to keep things running smoothly, it’s to protect your data... your customer lists, employee information, bank account numbers and more. To that end, the fundamental purpose of managed services is to address small issues before they become major problems. In this post, we’re going to look at a couple of these issues are and, more importantly, how NobleNetworks’ managed services can help you overcome them.

Issue 1: Technology changes

Probably the most common issue, changing technology accounts for a massive portion of all data breaches. On your home computer, installing updates and security patches may fall by the wayside but on your business system, delaying them can be catastrophic. Managed services eases the burden of maintaining your systems by tracking, installing and configuring updates on a regular basis.

Issue 2: Resources are scarce

For small businesses especially, IT resources can be hard to fit into the budget. Focusing on your business’ primary role – servicing your customers – it’s easy to let maintenance and backups slide. Managed services provide you with the benefits of in-house IT specialists without the hassle – or overhead – associated with hiring another full-time employee.

At NobleNetworks, our aim is to provide small and medium-sized businesses in the Kalamazoo area with stability, efficiency and security. We accomplish this by providing comprehensive IT services that address their needs: the management, design and implementation of their networks.
