Having a managed service provider (MSP) take care of your company’s IT operations full time is the gold standard, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses. That’s only true if you’re getting the right level of service, though. Few things are worse than mediocre IT, however, and it’s important to find out if you’re getting the value you need for the annual or monthly fee you pay.
Small businesses are just as vulnerable to cyber and network attacks as large corporations since the main concern of hackers is to steal confidential financial information. Once they've seized the data they can use it themselves to compromise accounts or sell it to other criminals on the dark web. Here are realistic ways your SMB can fight attackers, using multi-factor authentication strategies.
Leaders wear multiple hats, regardless of the organization's size. Sure. But we know, as small business leaders, we feel the pressure to try to do more with less. Over the last three decades, we've seen the role that technology plays in enabling us to be more effective as a company and for our clients. Technology, we find, is often needed and used, but not cared for or maintained as carefully as it should. Why? Because everything we do for our business requires time, money, skills, and resources to accomplish the caring and feeding each department needs to aid in the growth of the company.
These days, you don’t have to look too far on social media to find a #10YearChallenge. Some are simple: post a photo of yourself from 2009 and another from today to see how much you’ve changed. Others are using the hashtag for bigger and broader things to reflect on, such as climate change, sustainability, and global conflicts.
In the dynamic realm of IT support, the term "Managed Services" has emerged as a beacon of innovation and efficiency. With our roots embedded in nearly five decades of industry experience, MicroTech recognizes the transformative journey technology has taken, accompanied by the evolution of terminologies. In this comprehensive exploration, we aim to demystify the multifaceted concept of managed services, dissecting it into three pivotal categories:
Small businesses are looking to take advantage of SaaS solutions and the technology value they provide because it is at a price-point you can afford. The unforeseen challenge that we’re seeing is the added complexity to your systems that makes managing all the moving pieces more difficult. With so many disparate components of office software, for example, SMBs can struggle to keep pace with increasingly rapid update cycles. And upgrade cycles are significantly quicker (and more expensive) than they once were.
When you’re running a small business, these are inefficiencies you can’t afford. That’s why the move to an all-in-one toolkit like Office 365 can be so valuable for SMBs.
To reap the benefits of cloud computing without having to juggle multiple tools, more SMBs are switching to all-in-one tools with a migration to Office 365, Microsoft's business collaboration platform.
Today, one out of five corporate employees use an Office 365 cloud service, changing the way all businesses leverage traditional desktop applications, now in the cloud. Office 365 brings together many of your standalone applications in a centralized platform that takes advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing.
No one wakes up and seeks out mediocre IT service.
Every IT service provider has a story to tell you. Maybe they focus on their technical pedigree. Or, maybe they promise to provide better service than any competitor could.
