Depending on the industry you're in, keeping track of the assets that are vital to your business can be significantly valuable to you internally, but it may also be a necessary step in meeting various security or compliance regulations.
Accountability is an important factor in many IT environments, but depending on how your IT solutions are delivered or by whom, there may actually be little in the way of updated or clear documentation for you to draw on.
In the last couple of blog posts, we've been talking about managed IT services and, specifically, the immense value that this type of arrangement can have for small and mid-sized businesses. This week, I'm going to discuss yet another benefit of managed IT from IT Horizons - greater accountability.
Consistency & Transparency
Sometimes, when IT solutions are provided in-house, knowledge is internalized rather than clearly and regularly documented. When it's time to recall details for operating procedures or you need to track assets, and critical events have been overlooked or staff changes mean the information you need isn't readily available, this can create a stressful and potentially costly situation.
When you invest in IT solutions from our managed service offering, however, you receive the higher level of accountability that comes as part of a financially-backed commitment to maintaining outstanding levels of service. Should you be audited or need information with regards to your assets, access or security, you will be equipped with all the documentation you require.
If you've been looking for a solution that will keep your IT environment consistent, transparent and as efficient as possible, trust IT Horizons to keep up to date records of your assets, as part of our managed IT solutions package.
