Managed IT Support: Is it Time you Switch?

Do you find yourself constantly explaining your problems to your IT provider? Are you growing tired of chasing them all the time?

Perhaps you should consider switching IT Support Provider.

Concerned about the perceived inconvenience of switching though? Indeed, a changeover period to your operating system can have a negative impact on productivity, performance and service availability when dealt with unprofessionally, but not with SEBS. We do everything we can to ensure minimal downtime for your business and a smooth transition, but we’ll cover that in more detail later.

First things first, when should you consider switching provider? There are several factors you need to take into account which may cause alarm bells.


One of the most prominent reasons that organisations are unhappy with their IT provider is the cost. If you are not receiving value for money or a good return on investment, then you may want to consider looking elsewhere.

Technical Capability

Do you feel that your IT provider is technically capable to meet your requirements? You should not have to explain everything to them over and over again as they should have an understanding of your industry. Nor should you have to chase them for solutions and regular communication. They should be proactive in their approach to answering any queries you have or fixing any issues that you experience so that you are able to focus on what you do best. If not, you may find that your IT will inhibit the growth of your business, rather than encourage it.

Quality of Service

Many IT Support companies do not offer 24/7 support, which can have a huge negative impact on your business. If a system does down and you are unable to reach your IT provider, then who do you turn to? Similarly, if they are providing inadequate innovation and productivity, it may harm the performance of your business also.
