13 Jan Industry Trends in Proactive Remote Support for IT from Modern Life Technical Solutions
Every year, the digital revolution in business and support services bring more efficiency and opportunities for innovation.
We have seen explosive growth in remote work with no sign of slowing down. In the 21st century, remote work has grown into an increasingly significant part of the economy. This has revolutionized many fields, but especially IT services and consulting.
Advancing technology has helped to create a new breed of IT consultants who work remotely for businesses. Expanding capabilities means that these workers can do more than ever to identify and diagnose problems before they become serious.
Also, we have seen that businesses using our remote consulting services enjoy much less overhead for infrastructure and labor costs. Most importantly, small and medium sized businesses have better access than ever to consultants who can solve problems at lower costs.
Today’s technology allows IT consulting firms the opportunity to not only solve problems as they happen but to prevent your organization from experiencing them in the first place.
From our perspective, proactive remote support for technology will continue to expand next year and beyond.
What Is Proactive Support?
Proactive support for IT services involves a closer and more comprehensive relationship than is traditionally enjoyed between an organization and its IT support company.
Support on this basis involves the IT consultants working with your company to ensure that services are performed on a consistent basis.
Just as you go to the doctor for checkups to discover problems before they emerge, our technicians periodically run checks and routine maintenance tasks to keep your systems and devices running at their best possible levels.
How Does It Differ from Reactive Support?
Traditionally, support came in a reactive fashion. Your company’s technical support team responded when systems broke down or when staff needed extra training.
While the traditional approach does solve problems at, usually, reasonable prices, it involves more cost overall. When your business waits until trouble strikes to react, your systems could go down for hours, or even days.
For many companies in the digital age, even hours without vital systems and devices can result in the high cost of lost productivity. All too often a simple adjustment caught in time could prevent disaster from striking.
Why Companies Will Increasingly Embrace Proactive Support Going Forward
First, proactive remote support from IT consultants provides an efficient, cost-effective solution, which usually costs much less than employing your own staff. You directly save by not having to pay full time salaries. Also, you need not sacrifice time and effort to train and supervise.
Proactive support pays opportunity costs dividends by reducing the chance of a shutdown that can eat time and money. Many routine adjustments to your systems can be done with little or no interference with organizational operations.
Working proactively also ensures that our team catches serious problems before they become disruptive and costly for you.
Most importantly, small and medium sized businesses usually gain in efficiency when they can focus on core functions. Your team may not have the time or the resources to train themselves or others to do the work. A consultant can apply his or her expertise on day one.
The impending emergence of 5G wireless internet will boost the capabilities of remote consultants in IT and in many other fields. Faster speeds and enhanced capabilities will allow for even more in-depth work off-site to keep your systems running as they should.
