Managed IT services are as they sound – a set of IT services is controlled and operated by a third party. As the client, you define a selection of tasks and responsibilities that you would otherwise have to perform in-house and outsource these to your chosen provider. With managed IT services, an MSP provides professional IT support. This can take the form of managing and maintaining IT infrastructure or providing help-desk solutions to internal staff. Other MSPs offer more proactive services, including planning solutions, professional consulting, and recruitment.
Traditional IT support operates on a break/fix model. If something breaks, you take fix the issue, and perform a little maintenance along the way to keep things running. This operational IT model works well with businesses running smaller IT operations that service a limited number of users. Capital costs can be higher up front, but once the solutions are in place it’s just a matter of maintaining them and keeping enough in the budget for upkeep and repairs. A managed IT service works alongside your organisation on a long-term basis. The provider takes on the responsibility for actively managing a set of services, ensuring they add value to the organisation. The MSP provides access to expertise and staffing capacity that you might otherwise be out of reach. Over time, the MSP becomes an integral part of normal business operations.
With a traditional outsourcing model, your organisation might reaches out to a service provider when there is a project – or a problem – that requires external expertise. There is little to no incentive for the outsourcer to offer proactive maintenance – as this could potentially remove the need for their expertise in the future. Managed IT services offer value because their business model moves the operational service burden from the client to the service provider. The more issues you encounter, the more resources your MSP needs to use. Conversely, when the MSP puts more time and effort into ensuring you have a smooth-running IT environment, the fewer issues occur. Thus, both you and you managed IT service provider share aligned values – both want a problem-free IT environment that enhances efficiencies.

The measurable difference between managed service providers is the maturity of the support processes and the capability of their people. Our overall business model is simple yet incredibly powerful, with the net result being a world-class customer service experience.
We recruit our technicians based on values, not based on technical skill alone. We can teach technical skills, but it’s much harder to teach a customer service ethic, teamwork, and integrity.
Our service desk and engineering teams are distributed across all Australian states, New Zealand and Manila, allowing us to recruit from a broad talent pool.
We have invested in the best remote support and administration software available, carrier-grade network monitoring software, and the best ticketing software – the right tools pay significant dividends in capability and efficiency.
We continually train and re-certify our staff. We build ongoing certification incentives into our employment contracts. We provide internal promotion opportunities to ensure the best teams are retained, challenged, and developed.
We have implemented real-time feedback systems to track, measure and reward high end-user satisfaction.
All our critical metrics are monitored and displayed transparently on screens around our offices. We immediately know when there is a problem, and we react efficiently and effectively.
We have a transparent management process based on continual staff and customer feedback, with built-in procedures to ensure execution against our internal development priorities.
