238 minutes. That’s how much down time the average IT interruption causes per day.
01 IT Support
Technology will fail and there’s no way to completely prevent it. Cybercrimes are becoming more and more prevalent by the second and, according to Forbes, its estimated that up to 90% of businesses that face a cyberattack will go out of business and around 58% of those attacks are on small businesses. Downtime due to technology is costly to your business, not to mention the additional expense of technology repair when things go wrong.
Managed service providers stand with you to mitigate the frequency and duration of these failures – getting you back online as quickly as possible.
Another benefit of having a managed service provider on your team, when something does go wrong, we can help you implement steps to prevent it from happening in the future.
At Grand Rapids Tech, we offer IT support services a few ways:
- Break Fix Hourly Services
