Toronto based Managed Service Provider for Small and Medium Sized Business

 

What are Managed Services?

 

From 1CS’s perspective, a Toronto based Managed Service Provider for Small and Medium Sized Business, supply’s those IT Services which require ongoing activity of some nature. It is not necessarily the task itself which defines if a 1CS service is a Managed Service or not, but rather the way in which the 1CS service is provided. Many IT issues can be addressed a la carte or on a one time basis. You call a technician, the technician comes by, fixes the issue and leaves. Some of those IT issues can be addressed a la carte or on a one time basis. Those issues may also be addressed as part of “ongoing” support.

 

Ongoing support can be provided by 1CS in 2 ways. First, through a monthly support contract or second, simply by choosing to engage 1CS continuously. In either event, support would be ongoing. Additionally, there are some specific services which are Managed Services unto themselves due to the nature of the service being provided, like monitoring and reporting, which implies an ongoing activity. Ongoing being the operative word, when it comes to a Toronto based Managed Service Provider for Small and Medium Sized Business.
