There are three qualities that constitute an excellent managed services provider. While finding a provider that offers all three is a lot to ask, it isn’t too much to ask.
Addison, IL (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Look for expertise, experience and a full range of capabilities—these are three qualities that constitute an excellent managed services provider. Bill Dykema, B2B Computer Products´ Vice President of the Advanced Solutions Group, explained, “Technology providers tend to be focused on either providing managed services or reselling products or providing project-focused solutions. A great managed services provider will offer all three.”
Dykema added, “This is a significant benefit to clients because it allows us to streamline and coordinate every aspect of the product and service solutions we offer our clients. We can provide best of breed in every situation.”
More specifically, those in the market for managed/Cloud services should look for a provider offering the following:
- Superior design, implementation, training, and monitoring/management capabilities
- The ability to customize services for each client
- Proven expertise and excellent customer service (ask for referrals)
- Experience–staff members are both tech and management savvy
This is a lot to ask, but it isn´t too much to ask. Mitch Forkner, network administrator for Iowa´s Greater Regional Medical Center and a B2B Computer Advanced Solutions Group client, agreed that great customer service should be a primary consideration. “The Advanced Solutions engineers are amazing,” he said. “I even called them on a Sunday and they answered. Everyone is really good at what they do. Rather than just call over the phone, they will come down here when they need to and that personal service makes a big difference to us.”
