Augment Your Current IT Department with First Column’s IT Professionals
When you don’t have coverage, it’s dangerous to go alone.
You understand that technology is critical to your company’s success, but does your technology get the attention it deserves? If your in-house IT staff is overburdened with support work, they may find it difficult to keep up. This, in turn, puts the average employee in an unenviable position of having to troubleshoot the various common issues that plague the use of their technology.
This is why First Column’s co-managed IT is an exceptionally useful service, especially for small and medium-sized businesses that may have seen enough growth that you’ve developed the need for more IT support. SMBs often don’t have a budget flexible enough to onboard more trained IT personnel, so it makes more sense to outsource certain elements of your IT maintenance to other trained personnel. Additionally, with our certified technicians, you’ll gain skilled IT professionals to depend on when the time comes to integrate new procedures or resolve tricky issues.
Improve Your Business Operations
Scalable Co-managed IT services give your organization options.
Technology support is a field that requires vast amounts of knowledge that only comes from experience. If your team is busy integrating new changes to your organization's technology, some of the support might get put off, or go completely unresolved. This is particularly detrimental to your business’ network security. If patches aren’t issued regularly, your systems will quickly grow outdated and be vulnerable to the host of online threats.
Through our powerful remote monitoring and management solution, we can automate necessary security upgrades so when you integrate a co-managed IT situation, like the one First Column offers, you gain the expertise necessary to keep your network secure. With our comprehensive support services, your in-house team benefits from our technicians’ extensive knowledge in managing business technology.
Reliability and Accessibility
Give your team the powerful options First Column offers.
You might recall moments when an employee’s absence is felt around the office due to an increased workload. This can be a major setback, even if they’re only gone for a day. Our co-managed platform makes planning for vacations and paid time off easier.
Co-managed IT provides the availability to dedicated IT professionals that mitigate downtime-causing circumstances, whether your in-house IT staff is absent from the office, or not. In this way, First Column provides your staff powerful support options when their technology is on the fritz.
