What are Managed IT Services?
Every business uses technology as a means to compete in their field and maximize efficiency. Businesses rely on networks and IT more than ever, and the funds needed to maintain an in-house team keep rising.

Managed IT Services are a way to outsource maintenance and repairs to experts. A top-notch managed services provider (MSP) performs multiple functions for your company, such as:
These services take the pressure off your employees who may be filling in as IT, allowing them to focus on their daily tasks with better efficiency and focus.
Why Should I Consider Managed IT Services?
Break-fix services ruled the market for decades. When businesses experienced a problem with their server, they would call up an IT expert and try to explain the issue. If they were lucky, a solution could be found quickly. If they were not, they would be caught up in costly repairs and downtime. This type of reactive service is known as the break-fix approach.
On the other hand, managed IT services provide constant and consistent monitoring of your systems with the goal of preventing failures wherever possible. With remote monitoring, your managed service provider monitors the health of your systems and will be alerted in real-time to any issues experienced on your network. And with our predictable fixed monthly fees, managing and maintaining your IT budget is a whole lot easier.
The pros and cons of managed services make it clear that partnering with an MSP like Stellar IT Solutions is the best way to simplify your IT management affordably.
