Managed IT Service, Does it make sense in todays
Many businesses are feeling the
economic effects of a shrinking IT budget. The question
to ask is, Does a Managed Services approach make sense
for my company? We at Cornerstone IT believe the answer
is yes. But first, what are Managed Services? Managed
Services offer fixed budget options for managing your IT
related expenses. Rather than incurring ad-hoc, capital
expenses when your computers, servers or networks go
awry, managed services allows you to have a fixed
line-item operating expense. In turn, this allows you to
accurately budget your IT expenditures.
Second, when you pay time and material, the expenses
are usually higher in the end analysis. More time is
spent trying to isolate the issues rather than
proactively resolving them. Managed services, which
usually includes some form of network monitoring, allows

Lastly, companies are looking to extend the life and
usefulness of the equipment they already have. Managed
Services seeks to maximize the value of the investment
already made. The goal is to spend your money on
improvements where they will have the greatest effect.
IT service providers are looking to form long-term,
strategic partnerships with businesses so that we all
weather the current economic storm.
