Choosing a managed service provider isn’t always easy, especially if you don’t know much about IT. It is important to know there are some services that every managed services provider should have. Here are 3 basic things that managed services providers should be offering.
Network Solutions that Work
Everything else aside, your business needs a network that will work. There is no “one size fits all” network solution that will just work for everyone. Global Harvest Networks provides network solutions that work for your business. We create networks that are made to last, so that you won’t have to deal with functionality problems. If you create something that works well in the first place, there’s no need to keep “fixing” it.
One of the most common misconceptions about using a managed services provider is that it is horribly expensive. After all, instead of just hiring one IT person, you’re hiring an entire team of experts. Actually, in a lot of cases the opposite is true. You are getting an entire team of IT experts, but the way a managed service provider structures their business is so that they can provide excellent network support but with competitive pricing. With that said, it is still important to do your research. If a price quote sounds “too good to be true”, it probably is.
Your network is crucial to the functionality of your business. Because of this, you will want to make sure your managed services provider is experienced, and reliable. Don’t be afraid to ask for references. Do your homework and look at reviews online. If something rubs you the wrong way, trust your instincts and look elsewhere.
