Break/Fix model vs. Managed Services: Key Benefits of Managed Services
Many small companies use the “break/fix model” of technology management: when technology fails, a consultant is called in to fix the problem and the company pays a fee for the service. This method results in repeated downtime and lost productivity. The problem with this model is that consultants are not motivated to keep the client’s network and systems running efficiently because the consultant makes more money when the technology breaks down. Small business owners should consider the Managed IT Services solution for several reasons:
- Managed services provide affordable solutions to the complex technology problems of small businesses for a fixed monthly fee.
- Technology experts are fully focused on keeping the systems of the company up and running because repeated technology failures mean higher costs to them. Therefore, the managed services model is beneficial to both the client and the technology expert.
- Small businesses have the advantage of better services from a team of experts at lower fixed rates.
