Many small businesses in Denver have been researching IT Managed Services. Trying to determine if they are the right fit for them. What exactly is IT Managed Services? Well, in a nutshell an IT Managed Services firm will manage all technological aspects of the business for their customers.
In the manufacturing industry in the early 90’s, suppliers starting utilizing VMI. Vendor Managed Inventory systems tightened up the supply chain and improved deliveries to their retailers. IT Managed Services runs on the same premise. Small businesses that have no in house IT support or a one person operation typically run in crisis mode. They have a tendency to completely ignore the technology side of their business until it demands attention. Typically this means something pretty significant has occurred and business as usual is at a standstill until they can get an IT Support firm to their location.
This type of situation is unacceptable for all that are involved. What a huge waste of money for the business owner. They have employees not able to work and customers not able to get the information that they need. The potential for losses when running in crisis mode is huge.
