A fast and efficient network is critical for an organization of any size to remain competitive in today’s market. It is very important for those in charge of managing the IT to always be looking for new solutions to make their company as competitive as possible. Remote monitoring is a great option for organizations looking to make the most of their resources, by minimizing efforts and expenses to reduce costly network downtime.
For small to medium sized businesses it is not realistic to expect having a large IT department or around the clock help to address all issues immediately. Remote monitoring will allow your IT department, or IT services provider to respond to issues more efficiently as well as proactively monitor the network to reduce issues. Remote monitoring can benefit your business in the following ways:
Reduced Downtime: Most monitoring tools offer automatic alerts, allowing the technical staff to be immediately notified before a situation escalates. Remote monitoring is also 24/7, so even after hours you can receive alerts about issues.
Improve Network Performance: Through remote monitoring, issues slowing down a network will be recognized prior to your employees even realizing there is a problem.
Asset and Inventory Management: By implementing an asset and inventory management program, businesses will gain greater control and efficiencies with their hardware and software assets. A solution like this will allow your business to manage assets, track location to ensure you are not missing or nothing is stolen, and ensure deployments are handled properly.
It is a reality that an outage can destroy a business, according the Federal Emergency Management Agency 40% of businesses do not reopen after a disaster. By implementing remote monitoring, your business will be provided with the IT support you need to effectively oversee your network, and minimize downtime.
