There are many annoying things that occur on the internet, but one of the most annoying is the pop-up window and advertisement.
However, in a work setting, an even more annoying disturbance is the software or hardware pop-up stating something needs to be upgraded, restarted, or repaired.
Sometimes it makes you just want to scream, doesn’t it?
It’s no secret that today’s employees are more connected than ever before, and that they have also seen increased amounts of stress.
So how can having managed IT services help reduce this stress in the workplace?
The answer is simple: by taking care of the issues in the background.
If your managed IT services can be running, upgraded, and checked by your provider without you knowing it; that allows you to focus your time and energy on what really matters at your workplace and life.
Here are 3 ways managed IT services can run in the background:
The Right Set Up
Many office programs and technology departments consist of a hodge-podge of equipment, programs, servers, and IT directors.
And what is the result?
I think we already can picture what happens: we have our data on multiple programs and spreadsheets, and none of them can talk to each other. We end up spending time with multiple programs open and quickly become frustrated when we waste time doing the same task in several windows.
A managed IT service can work with you on the front end to design your system correctly from the ground up. No more disconnected equipment and programs!
This initial process will take some time to map out and plan everything, but the result will be a set up that runs quickly and quietly in the background, allowing you and your team to efficiently perform the work that needs to get done.
The Right Technology
Not only is it important to eliminate the hodge-podge of programs, it is also important to have the correct technology, both in hardware and software.
Setting up a secure network, complete with servers and communication, can take a lot of time to plan, install, and maintain.
Plus, if you are not sure if your network is secure, then it probably isn’t.
Don’t let security or outdated equipment be a concern! These are prime issues that can get in the way of your productivity at the workplace, and having your IT managed by professionals can let you know that your data is secure.
The Right Support
Sadly, even if you have the perfect set up with the perfect equipment, you will one day get the all-dreaded error message.
Technology has a way of disappointing us, doesn’t it?
But if you have a managed IT service, you don’t need to worry when this happens. You simply need to contact them and let them take care of it.
In fact, many IT services will direct the error message to their own team so that they can take care of the issue before it becomes a problem at your office.
That is the beauty of getting the right support: you don’t need to worry about the problems, and many of them can be taken care of remotely by the experts!
If you know your existing IT is made of sub-par equipment and processes, but you are too worried to mess with it for fear of losing everything, you don’t need to worry.
Picture yourself with a system that works well and does what you want it to do. Not only will this make your job less stressful, but the increased efficiency (or decreased service calls) can actually pay for a large part of the IT service fees!
