Frequently Asked Questions about Managed IT Services

For those with questions about IT outsourcing and its impact on office technology, take a moment to review our list of FAQ’s on Marco's Managed IT that our field reps and technicians put together.

How Will I Know if Managed IT Services is Benefiting My Business? 

Our Managed IT customers receive a bi-annual business review – we call it the Client Business Review. During this review, you meet with your technology advisor to go over the details of your service. We bring all of the data, performance analytics and ticketing information, discuss your business goals and assess anything that is or isn’t working. Businesses that partner with Marco always have a clear vision of how their business is benefiting.

Break/Fix Versus Managed IT: What’s the Difference?

Many of our customers are curious about this comparison. Here’s a basic rundown of break/fix versus Managed IT Services: Break/fix is a model where solutions to IT problems are figured out after a problem has already occurred. If you’ve ever discovered a broken piece of business technology and worked to solve it, you’ve experience break fixing. In other words, break/fixing is a reactive way of managing IT needs.

On the other hand, the Managed IT model is a proactive approach to business IT. With the use of 24/7 monitoring, Managed IT makes it possible to find small issues before they become problems. Instead of waiting for something to break, Managed IT figures out what areas are vulnerable and fixes them before a large problem occurs.

Can an Outsourced Help Desk Really Benefit My Business?

Absolutely – if you work with the right help desk. When it comes to outsourcing IT, the quality of your provider’s help desk is going to have a large impact on your experience. IT help desk support is meant to assist your end users with whatever problems they come across, and they want support that is kind, effective and prompt. Before you select a Managed IT Services provider, take a long look at their help desk offering.
