These days, more and more technology services are provided on a monthly service basis. This can include the labour for maintaining and repairing issues for business technology. The Managed Services concept is that the client is charged a monthly rate for services, and all visits, maintenance, setups, moves, etc. are included in that monthly charge. This takes away the uncertainty of IT costs per month or per year and switches the onus of maintenance and uptime to the IT provider. IT Providers will perform preventative steps and monitoring to ensure the systems don’t go down in the first place.
