As Benjamin Franklin once said “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Research has found that a proactive IT support service, compared to a reactive service, has far more benefits. The benefits of proactive IT include, reduced costs and an increase in business productivity, and are a result because it is easier and more affordable to maintain a healthy network than to fix issues as they arise.
More predictable IT investment
By spending money to help prevent issues you will have a much more accurate idea of your IT spend, rather than the expensive and unpredictable cost of fixing issues as they occur.
Faster performance and minimal downtime
Regular network maintenance will increase your network speed and minimize the chance of a crash. Through regular maintenance and a proactive remote monitoring solution you will be able to detect issues early and prevent them from escalating to expensive downtime and a slow network.
Sleep easier knowing your system is safe
Rather than worrying about if your system will crash at night and how you will fix it, a 24/7 remote monitoring solution can send you alerts at any hour of the day if something unique is going on with your network, so you will not be left in the dark.
Less to worry about
As an IT manager or business owner you already have a lot on your plate. With a proactive approach to your IT, you will not have to worry about hours of downtime and chasing fires because you will have a plan in place to prevent this worry.
By planning for your IT and taking a proactive approach, you will not have to waste as much time chasing fires all day, because a healthy network has less problems. It takes less time to keep your network stable consistently then to run around fixing unfamiliar issues.
A proactive approach to your IT will greatly benefit your company, and specifically the person at your company in charge of IT. There will be less to worry about, more predictable spending, less expensive downtime, and an overall time savings. Setting up a proactive approach to your IT system can be done by running regular maintenance and security checks on the network and 24/7 monitoring and alerting.
