What are Managed Services?

Managed services refer to IT services delivered in a defined manner with a predictable expense. Typically, managed services are delivered with a remote monitoring and management (RMM) system that allows your IT solution provider to monitor the health and performance of your IT assets 24/7. RMM means that they can perform proactive maintenance efficiently to stabilize your IT, and respond with rapid remote remediation when things go wrong.

Business Before and After Managed Services

Business without managed services is more reactive, costly, and unpredictable. Consider the impact of unscheduled downtime, caused by a virus or technical failure. The average costs to small and midsized businesses can be staggering. A 2008 Gartner study revealed that each unmanaged desktop costs businesses an average of $4000 a year in emergency services, lost productivity and opportunity costs, with an annual total cost of ownership (TCO) that is typically 42% higher than for managed PCs and 29% higher for unmanaged laptops.
With Rapid Green IT, you can expect to experience a dramatic reduction of unscheduled downtime and lower IT costs because problems are detected and resolved faster—often before you’re even aware of them. Managed services also helps you reduce and optimize your IT spending, keep more of your internal resources focused on core business activities, and arms you with accurate data about the health and performance of your IT assets.

Reduce Downtime, Reduce IT Costs

Industry experts and comprehensive studies from third-party research groups consistently conclude that managed services cost less and protect IT assets better. For example, 2007 CompTIA study found that network servers and devices that went down took 96% longer to repair when they were not covered by a remote monitoring service, resulting in costly unscheduled downtime.

CompTIA also discovered that network servers and devices that go down take an average of 96% longer to repair and end-users experience an average of 88% longer periods of downtime when the network server or device that fails is not covered by remote monitoring. They concluded that remote monitoring and management services have the greatest impact on reducing IT downtime and its impact on users.
