Managed Services are a way that small to medium sized businesses can have their own IT department for a fraction of the cost of maintaining an in-house one. You can offload specific IT operations, from routine monitoring and maintenance to backups and desktop support, which leaves your staff free to focus on your core business. With the ever increasing reliance on IT, you need access to experts who keep up to date, and are trained to navigate the complex and ever-changing world of technology.
In short, a Managed Service Provider (MSP) like Benson & Associates helps small to medium businesses (SMBs) like you with all of your IT (Information Technology) issues. That’s a lot of TLIs (three letter identifiers), but FYI – with an MSP your SMB will never be SOL or DOA.

We offer any kind of technology service you could need – it’s a pretty long list, so here are just a few of the services we provide:

Storage and related management services – we have a state of the art Data Centre which allows us to store all of your data, backups and software offsite. We keep your data safe and secure, and can provide a second line of defense in case of disaster at your offices. We can store your server here, or you can have space on one of our servers. We have technicians monitoring and maintaining our data center at all times – and they are able to trouble shoot any issues that arise. We can host your email, exchange server, enterprise wide software or website right here in our offices.

Desktop Management and Help Desk Support – when your email isn’t working, you’re getting an error, you think you have a virus, you need some new software installed, or your computer isn’t talking to your printer – these are the times you call our Helpdesk, and speak with an expert. On-site or remotely, we fix your problems right in front of your eyes. We will also make sure you have up to date and effective virus and spam protection.

You choose the level of support you require, and we provide it. We customize your managed support contract to include everything you need, and nothing you don’t need. Our services are priced on a per-device, per-month basis, so you can get the level of service you need at the best price. If you want 24/7 Helpdesk support for your employees in the field, we can provide that. If you need someone to host your website and your e-mail, we can provide that. If you want a comprehensive range of client, network, server and applications, we can provide that.

The bottom line is that Managed Services are the perfect fit for your small or medium business - a flexible, proactive, cost-effective way to manage your IT requirements.

If you have any questions about Managed Services, or want to discuss additional services we can provide to meet your organization’s growing demands, please call our Helpdesk at 1(403)247-1664 or toll-free at 1(877)247-1664. And please pass this on to any contacts you think might benefit from our services - they can visit our website at to get a free quote!
