Managed IT Services

When it comes to IT (Information Technology), many businesses are stuck with a break-fix approach. Some wait until last minute – until equipment or software quits to address issues that have been accumulating over time, while others “manage” their network utilizing part-time technicians or dedicated but underpowered internal staff. The result in most cases is very similar – lost productivity, distractions from creative and revenue-generating work, incurring unnecessary expenses when slowly debilitating problems turn into catastrophic outages.

At ASC, we eliminate the break-fix approach. In fact, we promote an entirely different approach – continuous monitoring of critical network hardware and applications, practicing preventative maintenance, which ultimately results in faster problem resolution, and substantially lowers costs.

Additionally, managing your IT infrastructure proactively delivers many benefits: greater network reliability, higher employee productivity, reduced risk of costly downtime, as well as improved total control over IT expenditures. Our approach is also the essential step towards utilizing technology as a powerful tool to help your business grow.

Essential Care

Focus on running your business, knowing that your trusted IT Partner is watching your back and is always accessible whenever you need them most. Essential Care provides precisely that and more – it gives you the same level of expertise that large companies demand, but perfectly sized for your business at a fraction of the cost.

This plan is based on our network monitoring service that prevents most issues from developing in the first place, and reduces the time and resources needed to fix problems that do come up. Instead of you noticing a problem on your own, calling your part-time IT person for help, and then waiting hours or days for resolution, we monitor and maintain your network for you and start working on a fix when our system automatically alerts us of a problem. In many cases, we can reduce downtime from hours or sometimes days to minutes, making sure your business can continue to work productively.
