MANAGED SERVICES = Managed Costs, Managed Risk, and Peace of Mind

  • Security:  Outdated technology will ultimately result in security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers, putting businesses at risk.  Older systems are often unsupported, leaving updated security patches unavailable for them.
  • Productivity:  Whether it is hardware or software, older applications and systems are more likely to fail than their modern counterparts.  These failures result in increases in downtime – a bane for any company.
  • Money:  According to the Samanage State of Workplace Survey , productivity lost due to outdated technology cost American businesses $1.8 TRILLION per year.  Outdated technology is also more expensive to maintain, resulting in additional costs over newer devices.
  • Reputation:  According to Microsoft, 90 percent of consumers say they would take their business elsewhere if an SMB was using outdated technology.

Managed Services IT Department  

In addition to partnering with Embark IT to keep your hardware up to date, we offer services to maintain your top of the line equipment in its optimal state. It used to be that having an IT person was as easy as delegating the task to someone in the office. However, in our fast-changing landscape of technology, those days are gone. Software maintenance is key to optimal productivity and reducing downtime. Intense security data breaches are happening more than ever, and the need to hire an IT department has become more and more imperative. However, hiring a qualified IT department is expensive.  So, what is the solution?  Outsource it.

At Embark IT we realize that you need to keep your focus and attention on your business. You shouldn’t have to overpay for staff that you don’t need full time, yet you do need that level of expertise.  This is where Managed IT Services become the perfect solution, and Embark IT is perfect partner.

Do you need it? Ask yourself some questions.

What is your current situation?  How much time are you or other key employees spending on technology instead of income-generating activities, or their primary scope of work?  How much are you spending calling someone when your technology breaks?  How much time are you spending researching IT needs and what the best solution(s) may be? How much does it cost you when your critical systems are down?  What would happen if you lost all your organization’s most important data overnight?  What is the financial impact to your business to lose everything and not be able to recover it?
