Managed IT can work wonders for your business regardless of its size. George Passidakis, the Apex Technology Management, Inc. Director of Sales and Marketing, visited KCNR 1460 AM studios in Redding, California to explain some of the incredible perks that come along with managed IT. In his 15-minute interview, George Passidakis delightfully explains what managed IT is, how Apex managed IT is perfect for small businesses, and why so many people have turned to his service for the past 25 years. Here’s a look at what George Passidakis and Apex Technology Management Inc. are all about.

What Is Managed IT?

Managed IT allows you to offload certain IT operations to a service provider as opposed to your being limited to in-house staffed IT. By hiring managed IT, your service provider can take on the responsibility of the problem resolution, managing and monitoring of your selected IT functions and systems on your behalf. Managed IT providers can offer data backup/recovery, patch management, security and alerts for a wide variety of client devices, including applications, networks, storage systems, servers desktops, etc.

Managed IT Perks

Applying managed IT allows your business to focus on operations/growth by off-loading its routine infrastructure to professionals, which offers less interruptions when repairing IT issues. In addition to this perk, managed IT services often provide service packages that cater to your business needs. These service packages help eliminate the costs of having full-time IT staff on hand when they’re not needed, which can quickly burn holes in a company’s budget. Other perks of managed IT include:

  • Provide Updates on Systems — Since managed IT is in control of the systems you operate, they can patch and update programs as you and your staff work. This eliminates the time that would be spent keeping tabs of your systems/programs or time spent repairing systems/programs after a data breach; managed IT can prevent a data breach before it happens.
  • 24/7 Maintenance — Managed IT can offer the 24/7 maintenance that the average 9 to 5 IT staffer cannot do (unless your business can afford it). Since budgets can be a big issue for SMBs and growing businesses, managed IT is often the avenue that many pursue because every cent is effectively utilized.
