Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a professional services firm providing IT solutions for companies in the San Francisco Bay area since 1990, has been a Managed Service Provider (MSP) managing client’s networks since 2004.

To fully understand the advantages of having a Managed Service Provider (MSP) for your organization, there are four key areas to consider when thinking about hiring an MSP and the first one should be response time.

Response Time
This is likely the most important aspect of successful IT management: response time. Ask your prospective (or current) MSP – what is your response time commitment? How often are you meeting it? CCS’ Managed Service Program (MSP) NetCentral tests and validates their Service Level Agreements 24/7 to ensure that they are meeting the needs of clients. A recent report showed that NetCentral met the service level requirements 99% of the time on over 6000 tickets since the beginning of 2015.

Ability to Work Remotely
Modern technology enables about 80% of IT support to be handled remotely. Driving should never be a problem for these issues. An MSP that can’t handle the majority of their support via remote is wasting too much time driving.

Capacity
Verify that your MSP has a large enough staff, and clear procedures in place for prioritizing service calls to ensure someone will be available when you need help fast. In addition, ask questions about capacity and staffing. CCS’ NetCentral MSP technical and help desk team is staffed by employees on site, not freelancers or subcontracted offshore.

Verifiable Service Levels
Promises and effort are great, but they’re not necessarily reliable indicators of an MSP’s ability to respond quickly in a consistent manner.  A truly mature service organization will have internal mechanisms in place to constantly track and measure service performance against specific goals. As we stated before, Ask your prospective (or current) MSP – what is your response time commitment? How often are you meeting it?

Consistently excellent service from a provider requires an organization with a tightly controlled set of processes to achieve their goals. And the process should constantly be monitored and measured – in real time and in periodic reviews.  If your MSP can’t demonstrate that they have these procedures in place, then they are depending on luck, and your business cannot depend on luck.
