Benefits of Managed IT Support
Skill and Expertise
Simple tasks are time-consuming but easy to manage if you’re technically minded. But when you encounter a complex and critical issue – it helps to have someone to turn to.
Managed IT support gives you access to expert skill on an ongoing basis. We’re here to help with any task, big or small. Best of all, we’ll need minimal involvement from you except to let you know it’s sorted.
Managed IT support makes IT management simpler than ever. Rather than managing and maintaining your IT yourself, a team of professional handles it on your behalf. Complex and time-consuming tasks no longer cause frustration. In most cases, they are completed before you’re even aware of them.
While many businesses can provide support in-house, it is expensive for the small to medium business. It’s not just salaries to think about – training costs and new tools on top of your existing IT spend quickly add up. When you add up the costs of absence cover, training fees and recruitment costs – outsourced support is a more attractive alternative.
At iQuda we give you the benefits of your own IT team at a fraction of the cost. Our team of Level 1, 2 and 3 engineers is here to help with any problem – big or small. Plus, we provide you with unlimited support from our highly specialized engineers, so there’s no need to spend more on expensive consultants or experts.
We help you get more from your systems by ensuring they are configured for top performance. Our whole ethos is focused on proactivity. Whether it’s making sure your updates are applied regularly or our continual improvement policy – we always keep you one step ahead.
Through proactivity, we make sure you get the best possible value from your IT. We’re passionate about ensuring your systems are as optimized as possible – and that we remove any roadblocks that stand in the way of your success.
Compliance and Security
Security is a massive consideration. Despite highly publicized attacks over the last year, many businesses still fall behind the curve. Every business wants to stay secure, but some don’t have the time or resource to make it happen. That’s where we come in.
We include security management in our managed IT support agreements so you’re set up for success. From configuring your systems in line with best-practice to monitoring global threats to keep you safe – your security is our number one priority.

The Evolution of Managed IT Support
Break/fix support is entirely reactive and relies on something going wrong before a solution is implemented. This is typically a ‘pay-as-you-go’ service. Break/fix works for some businesses, but usually results in higher-pressure, emergancy scenarios when your systems go down. Downtime can continue until new components or systems are sourced, delivered and installed.
Given that most IT problems can be prevented a long time before they cause substantial disruptions, it’s easy to see that this can be a short-sighted solution.
This approach actively implements fixes before potential problems get out of hand. Network monitoring and monitoring are commonly used to monitor vital performance metrics like drive space, CPU usage and the status of installed patches or updates. When a potential issue is spotted, a fix is put in place to prevent a larger problem. This level of support is usually paid for on a monthly basis and results in a more effective network with less downtime. The level of service you receive largely depends on the provider.
MANAGED IT SUPPORT
Managed IT support takes proactive support even further. This service caters for every aspect of a businesses IT support needs and delivers an entirely outsourced-IT department for a fraction of what it would cost to develop and maintain an in-house team. Organisations that use managed IT support effectively outsource all their IT needs to an external company, placing the operation and maintenance of their network in the hands of their provider. This is our approach to IT support.
The entirety of your infrastructure is managed and maintained to maximise the value you leverage from your IT. Managed IT support is an all-inclusive service that places your IT in professional hands, giving you freedom from daily maintenance and unlimited supports across the board. Best of all, everything is covered by a single monthly fee, making it easy and predictable to track what you spend on IT.
