Most people and businesses update their software only when an IT techs comes for a repair. This adds time to your repair visit which is not good for your budget.
To keep your equipment up and running securely, you need someone who understands updates, how to apply all the patches, and how to make sure all your other tech is playing nice. If you are a business and have an in-house IT specialist, you should be good to go. But if you don’t have a qualified IT team member or you are a residential client, outsourcing to managed services is the perfect solution. You get highly skilled technicians remotely applying your network updates after hours.
Here are a few other areas that Layer 2 Computers look at as part of managed services:
Hardware Health: The last thing you want is days of downtime after a piece of hardware dies. By not staying on top of your hardware health, you’re opening yourself up to lost productivity, lost income and unknown delays. Our managed services can assess and replace components before they break.
Operating System Expiry: While it’s great that you have a preferred OS, keeping it after the manufacturer stops support can leave your business or home computer vulnerable for attack. We can suggest the best upgrade for your needs.
Legacy programs: Updates to your software have the potential to disrupt older programs, resulting in errors, slow performance or even downtime. With technology advancing so fast, we often find additional requirements with an update, such as extra processing power, memory or graphics. With our managed services, we will make sure to check for compatibility as a whole before running an update.
Staying on top of your maintenance and upgrades can be a huge challenge for small businesses and residential clients. Outsourcing to our managed services can help more than your budget – call us today at 937-660-4899.
