Is It Time To Find A New IT Provider?

Is it time to find a New IT Provider?

Finding a technology partner that continues to complement your business is paramount.  This includes having the trust and confidence in them to provide reliable and efficient IT support.  Ideally, your IT Service Provider will align with your business to ensure they continue to meet your growing needs.   This includes providing effective resolutions and proactively working on your IT infrastructure so systems continue to run smoothly.

Whilst we value long term business partnerships, cracks can sometimes begin to appear. As such, you might notice IT service standards slipping with your existing provider. As a result, your team will become less productive or even frustrated by IT instabilities. Overall, if you are not feeling valued, it might be time to find a new IT Provider.  It just might be the change your business needs.  Following are tell tale signs it’s time to switch:

Your IT provider is not proactively supporting your business

When IT issues do arise, response times should meet or exceed service level agreements (SLA’s).  Afterall, who doesn’t want an IT issue resolved quickly. When SLA’s are not fulfilled, it can be frustrating, time consuming and costly to a business. Most concerning is that your agreement is not being fulfilled.

When you engage a Managed Services Provider, it is their responsibility to manage your IT infrastructure proactively.   This includes maintenance such as security patches, updates and 24/7 monitoring to name a few.  Overall, your IT Provider should be identifying and dealing with potential problems within your IT environment, before they escalate into major issues.

IT issues are not effectively resolved

Outsourcing your IT support makes sense if you don’t have the expertise in-house to deal with technology issues.  Investing in Managed Services ensures your day-to-day operations are not disrupted.  As a result, you can concentrate on your business operations. However, if you find your business technology infrastructure is persistently experiencing the same IT issues, this is a problem. If your IT provider is not effectively resolving IT issues it may be a sign they don’t have the expertise to manage and resolve the issue. Whatever the reason, experiencing the same issues over and over again isn’t acceptable, particularly with today’s reliance on technology.

IT provider no longer meets your growing needs

Simple question… Has your business outgrown your current IT provider’s offerings? When you first outsourced your IT support, your organisation was probably smaller, with fewer team members.  As a result, a small IT support company or single dedicated IT technician may have been just what you needed at the time.

However as your business has grown, so have your IT support and service requirements. As such, your IT provider may be struggling to catch up and meet your requirements.  Therefore, a larger IT support company who has the resources to effectively manage your business, might be are better fit?

You lack confidence with their technology expertise

Keeping a current IT infrastructure in today’s technology environment is important for all businesses. Whether you’re considering a remote/virtual desktop environment or moving to the cloud, you want to be sure that your IT partner can provide smarter solutions for your business needs.  Overall, your IT Provider’s Project Development Team should have the knowledge and ability to align with your business to deliver the right results.
