Technology is critical for any business interested in increasing profits. Businesses rely heavily on technology to automate their core functions.

While technology can be incredibly valuable when it’s working properly, it can also cause major headaches when it isn’t. Business owners are being forced to deal with the technology aspects of their business, distracting them from running their business.

As a result, businesses are increasingly turning to local technology service providers known as “Managed Service Providers” to manage the IT function within their business.

What is an MSP? Simply put, an MSP becomes or augments a company’s IT department. There are a number of benefits of utilizing an MSP. These include:

24/7 Availability

What happens if your server crashes in the middle of the night? At Hooks Systems we have a team of highly trained professionals ready to make sure you’re covered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Business owners won’t have to worry about IT coverage in the event of holidays, sickness, or vacations. With phone access to a live technician, you have the peace of mind that an expert is just a call away.

Knowledge

Most small to mid-sized businesses can find it difficult to keep an in-house IT manager paid a competitive wage, educated on the latest technologies, and challenged within their role. In the world of technology, staying on the cutting edge means a constant investment in technical training.

Our MSP staff possesses a breadth of knowledge across the organization, allowing us to solve problems faster. With a wide array of experience and expertise, we are studying and testing industry best practices on a daily basis. As a result, your business benefits by having the most highly trained IT staff available.
