Managed IT Services
Viruses, hackers, data loss, system failure. These are just a few of the many things threatening your business every day. Most retailers don’t have a dedicated IT resource or department to manage their day-to-day technology needs. This means IT responsibilities usually fall on an operations manager, store manager or owner who often doesn’t have the time or technical expertise to address critical issues when they arise.

In today’s digital world, finding the right management resources to help ensure your company is embracing
technology in a meaningful and cost effective way is critical to success. However, these resources often come
with a hefty price tag and the competition is fierce. Our Managed Services plan helps address this dilemma by
offering the resources and expertise you need to address current and future challenges while maximizing
your technology investment. This is accomplished by:
- Providing an experienced “virtual” Chief Information Officer, or vCIO, who will be intimately
familiar with your company, the challenges you face and the systems you use.
- Developing a strategic technology plan that prioritizes goals/objectives and gives you
recommendations on the solutions needed to meet them.
- Maintaining constant communication with your company on all technology related activity –
from the status of support tickets to the health of your network.
- Holding quarterly business reviews to evaluate KPIs, address ongoing concerns and identify
future technology needs in order to stay ahead of the curve.
- Providing ongoing consultation to help ensure you are utilizing best practices and making
informed decisions that will help you achieve success.
- Developing a detailed IT budget to help you maintain better control of all ongoing technology
costs and anticipated growth.
