The Incredible Long-Term Benefits of Managed IT Services vs. Break/Fix


March 2, 2016

The break/fix tactic has been a staple in the IT industry for years – but over time, businesses have began to realize it isn’t exactly the most effective method (or the most lucrative for your budget.) When it comes to technology, a proactive approach is the most reliable and secure way to operate.

Computer Network Management

Integris understands how crucial IT is to every facet of your operations: communication, collaboration, security, project planning, and so much more.

With a managed services plan that is aligned uniquely with your needs, you get the tools and solutions that you need at a set price – so you’re not shelling out extra cash every time you’re in need of a new service or immediate support.

Peace of Mind

With managed IT services, the burden of technology is removed from your shoulders. That means you don’t have to sit around worrying if an issue will pop up and derail your productivity. With a managed services provider, you benefit from knowing that challenges are not only acknowledged and resolved quickly, but are also proactively accounted for to minimize potential disruption.

  • A break/fix approach may be a lower cost on paper but it can get expensive rather quickly – which means your overall ROI isn’t as great as it could be.
  • Managed services are designed to maximize your budget and provide the peace of mind you need to stay focused on your important work while leveraging the right tools for your requirements.

With IT playing a major role in how you operate, taking a gamble on support is a major risk. With a break/fix approach, by the time you reach out for assistance with an issue it may be too late. Downtime cripples operations, and a strategic managed services plan is designed to alleviate that risk. Proactive managed support ensures issues are resolved quickly and with care, so disruptions are minimized.

So, are you ready to have a conversation about maximizing your capabilities and budget with a reliable and effective managed services plan?
