Managed Service Providers for Business IT
Businesses of every size need IT support. Whether there are trained professionals on staff or a small group of technology-minded employees brought in to mind the IT, most business’s IT is not covered by their area of expertise. While it is tempting to keep everything internal, modern cloud, mobile, and IoT computing make the need for properly managed IT essential to businesses of any size.
Because businesses don’t have the resources to build a dedicated IT support team, they often resort to pulling in people whose expertise is actually website design, engineering, or coding. While these individuals have the latent ability to handle IT, they’re rarely trained, equipped, or have enough experience to do the job well.
What is a Managed Service Provider?
This is where NexusTek’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) plans can help businesses of all sizes. Rather than using time, energy, and resources to build an internal IT management team, an MSP will provide the experienced IT support and management with their own resources.
An MSP plan takes the experience, technology, and training of expert IT management teams and makes it available to businesses of all sizes.
Managed Service Plans: REMOTE
The Remote Managed Service Provider (MSP) plan is NexusTek’s premiere IT support plan for businesses that operate primarily via cloud infrastructure. Out of our four MSP plans (Essentials, Remote, Dedicated, and Complete), the Remote plan gives businesses exactly what they need to manage their cloud IT and how it integrates with their actual use of IT.
How Does an MSP Manage IT?
In IT, information is everything. Remote MSP provides remote IT support and IT monitoring to ensure that businesses are not left in the dark regarding the state of their IT. Each MSP plan gives essentials like cyber security, system monitoring and tracking, and IT inventory tracking.
Remote MSP further helps with IT support via around-the-clock help desk access, support for backups, and other cloud-based IT support needs. Because of the help desk support included in the Remote plan, many businesses will use the Remote MSP plan to supplement their internal managed IT needs. The internal team tracks on-site IT and manages the physical infrastructure, while NexusTek provides troubleshooting and help desk support.
Features of the Remote MSP Plan
The Remote plan has all the same features as the Essentials MSP plan, plus more focused features that are geared towards cloud systems, including the following:
- 24-hours a Day Unlimited Help Desk
- Support for Unlimited Devices
- User Management Systems
- IT Strategy and Planning
- Website Content Filtering via OpenDNS
- User Security Training
- Software and Infrastructure Monitoring
- Business IT Recovery through Backups and More
