Benefits of Managed Services

Small businesses, just like larger corporations, require technology to operate efficiently and effectively compete. However, as reliance on IT grows, so may the resources to support an increasingly complex IT environment. IT resources are scarce in many small businesses, and they can quickly become overwhelmed with the day-to-day responsibilities of keeping the IT infrastructure on which the business depends up and running.

If you fall behind on things like backups, patches, and security, you're more likely to experience an IT outage or some other problem that will have a negative impact on your business. For example, if your ransomware attack, email, CRM system, accounting software, or network goes down unexpectedly, you will suffer significant productivity and revenue losses.

Unlike traditional outsourcing scenarios, in which you relinquish complete control of your IT assets, Ascot Business Systems allows you to choose what you want the service provider to handle and what you want to handle yourself. You maintain complete visibility into the process and management of your systems, which aids in risk management.
