Did you know the average amount of downtime that businesses experience during their lifecycle is around 87 hours? Further, it is estimated that you lose $84,000 of revenue/productivity for every hour of downtime.

Here are five specific advantages of investing in R-Monitoring with Maintenance, River Run’s premier Remote Monitoring offering:

1. Limited Downtime

By implementing remote monitoring and IT automation, your servers will be watched 24/7 so that the moment a potential problem arises it can either be resolved automatically or escalated and addressed remotely. This can dramatically reduce the amount of time systems are inaccessible and, in many cases, prevent network downtime from occurring in the first place.

2. Enhanced Security

When systems can be automatically monitored around the clock, threats can be more quickly detected, identified, analyzed, prioritized and dealt with accordingly. Those incidents that can be remediated without human intervention will be resolved automatically while those that require human input can be addressed by the appropriate party either via SMS, IM, email or phone. This significantly decreases the chances of your company’s sensitive data becoming compromised.

3. Lower Total Cost of Ownership

A CEO, CFO, and/or IT manager know all too well how quickly Total Cost of Ownership, or TCO, can add up. Between the initial investment in hardware and software, the ongoing maintenance of both, and all the expenses that go along with recruiting, hiring, training and retaining your employees, it all takes a toll on your company’s bottom line. While there are, of course, certain costs associated with implementing automation, the added benefit of remote monitoring can help offset much of the overall TCO by enabling staff to work productively on the network and systems at a more predictable rate.

4. Streamlined Maintenance

It’s of critical importance that all systems, programs and applications are well-maintained and kept up-to-date with any updates, patches, security and overall health checks. When your network is properly maintained, your business will continue to run smoothly. Keeping up with this demanding task can be challenging, particularly for companies or IT departments that are working with limited resources, either financially or staff-wise. Remote monitoring keeps track of the status of all your technology to ensure that any issues that arise are promptly addressed.

5. Improved Productivity

With automation, manual tasks and workflows can be shifted from human to machine, freeing up talented personnel to focus their skills elsewhere. Also, since your systems and network will be continuously monitored regardless of staff location, you improve service levels and ultimately grow your business – which is why River Run exists! To help our people, our clients, and our community achieve meaningful results!
