Is Managed Services The Best For My Company

Georgia IT Services have come a long way over the past 2 decades that we have been in business. Managed Services benefits our customers in many ways, continue below for a breakdown of some of the common questions we get from prospective customers?

What are some of the ways IT Services Can be priced?

There are 3 main ways in which IT service companies typically price out their services for their customers. These include Hourly Break Fix, Block Hours and Managed Services.

  1. Break-Fix Pricing:

    • This model charges clients only when there is a problem or issue that needs to be fixed.
    • The IT provider charges an hourly rate or a fixed fee per incident.
    • Clients pay for support on an as-needed basis, making it suitable for businesses with infrequent IT issues.
    • Some of the Negatives of Break-Fix pricing: it can lead to unpredictable costs for clients and may incentivize the IT provider to prioritize quick fixes over long-term solutions.
  2. Block Hours Pricing:

    • In this model, clients purchase a predetermined number of hours in advance, which they can use for IT support as needed.
    • The IT provider typically offers these hours at a discounted rate compared to the standard hourly rate.
    • Clients benefit from cost savings and predictable expenses, and they have a certain level of flexibility in using the hours.
    • Some of the Negatives of Block Hours: if the purchased hours are not fully utilized within a specified period, they may expire, leading to unused funds.
  3. Managed Services Pricing:

    • Managed services involve proactive monitoring, maintenance, and support of IT systems for a flat monthly or annual fee.
    • The IT provider takes responsibility for the client’s IT infrastructure, ensuring its reliability, security, and performance.
    • Pricing is often tiered based on the size and complexity of the client’s environment and the level of service required.
    • Clients benefit from predictable costs, proactive maintenance, and rapid response to issues, leading to increased operational efficiency and reduced downtime.
    • There is no secret this may be our favorite way to serve our clients, the negative for the client is the required investment is usually more than the previoud methods however the benefits war out way the
