Remote Management

Our Managed IT Services team keeps an eye on your entire network, all day every day. With 24/7 monitoring, we can identify and resolve hardware issues, detect and deal with suspicious activity, and apply patches and updates - before real issues occur. We’ll keep your technology up to speed by providing effective active server monitoring, ongoing workstation support, headless device management, patch management, and implementing security best practices.

On-Site Service

To provide you the biggest cost-savings, we do as much as we can online. However, along with ongoing remote management, we also provide excellent on-site support to the West Michigan area (and beyond). We’ll work with you to assess the situation and determine whether or not a tech needs to be dispatched. We have a friendly, personable team who are ready to work side-by-side in assisting you with issues, on-site. More importantly, we'll get to you quickly; usually within a few hours (not days).

Back-up Solutions

Gone are the days of maintaining separate sets of tape drives to preserve your company’s data. And if you’re backing your data up to an external hard drive, or even to Dropbox, you are setting yourself up for disaster. In a recent report, 93% of companies without a solid disaster recovery plan, who suffer a major data loss, are out of business within one year. We can help keep your data secure and safely backed up with outstanding remote and on-site solutions, including Barracuda Backup, Carbonite and Pipeline.

Office 365 Support

Cloud-computing has revolutionized the way we all do business, and Microsoft Office 365 is no exception. It offers a suite of productivity tools that are accessible from anywhere - such as Outlook, Word, Excel, OneDrive and more. We offer complete Office 365 support through our Managed IT Services plans, including initial pricing strategy, implementation, on-boarding, training and support. We also offer assistance with security and compliance, throughout the process. We'll help you take your productivity and communication to the cloud; securely and efficiently.

How Does it Work?

First, we’ll work with you to assess your company’s existing IT situation. We’ll discuss your organizational goals, review your budget, and take a look at your existing equipment. Next, we’ll provide you with a customized Manage IT Services plan, tailored to meet your needs.

Once the plan is approved, we’ll go through the on-boarding process with you – setting up security and monitoring software on the devices included in the plan, providing training on how to communicate with our support staff, and documenting the issues we find and address.

From there, we’ll provide you with ongoing remote management, meet with you routinely to review your technology health status, make IT recommendations, and much more.
