The old adage, "it's easier to keep up than catch up," certainly holds true with regard to IT infrastructure, communications, and data management systems. A Managed Service Provider (MSP), like the long-standing family doctor, can diagnose potential issues before they bring your systems down. Having a relationship with your business and your processes, an MSP can help you upgrade your infrastructure as your needs grow. Waiting until the hardware or software is 'broken' can mean costly down times and surface other problems that should have been addressed sooner, making the 'fix' more expensive and complicated.
