As we’ve posted before, the decision to go with a managed network services provider can be a tricky one. While monetary reasons may guide the discussion with your potential provider, here is another option to consider: hiring a local managed network services provider.
Why is a local managed network services provider a benefit to me?
There is always an option to have someone on site. Most large companies will say that most IT issues can be solved remotely. Copier Headquarters is able to troubleshoot with technological advances like any major company. However, since we are so close to our customers, we are able to come on site if necessary. This can range from training appointments to consulting on new IT practices. Having someone local is another layer of protection against many IT issues. Local managed network services providers are also more likely to offer combined options. Often times, local businesses are small businesses, meaning they can specialize their services to your needs. Copier Headquarters can combine Managed Network Services with office equipment purchases, maintenance agreements, consumables, service and more. By bundling services that relate to office equipment, you are able to receive one invoice and only have to remember one phone number. The benefit for your company is a more streamlined and efficient way to troubleshoot office equipment. [caption
