The cons of using an Ad-hoc service over a managed Service provider.

Ad hoc services are a one-off support service, where the problem has to arise for support to be carried out. These are the pros and cons of using an ad-hoc service for your IT Support:

Pros:
  • One-off costs.
  • No monthly charges.
Cons:
  • No proactive monitoring helping you nip the issues in the bud before they arise.
  • An Increase in downtime as IT issues arise.
  • Fewer IT developments.
  • No access to an IT expert at any time of the day.
  • No additional training for your staff.

Managed IT support services are available remotely during office hours and emergency support out-of-hours. MSPs also provide proactive monitoring leading to potential problems being fixed early. Using an MSP will save you money in the long run by investing in your IT support now you are eliminating potential exponential costs in the future.
