Here’s answers to our most common questions

How do I choose the right Managed Service Provider?

Selecting the right MSP is no small task. Pro tip - Look at the caliber of equipment the MSP plans to use to power your company. Ask for the brand names of the hardware and software they plan to deploy; you don’t need to deep dive the models and features but make sure they are using true enterprise level equipment and software tools.  This is where the “gotchas” are. IT Resources uses the very best and next gen enterprise cloud managed equipment and sophisticated management tools on the planet. 

What kinds of companies need managed services?

We specialize in all classifications of companies with 5 to 150 employees. Computers and technology are driving production in all areas of business and cybersecurity is now a must-have.

What is Rapid Response?

Rapid Response means you get prompt support when you need it. We are always a call, email, or a text away and our techs are obsessed with the sense or urgency. When you’re down, there is no company faster to reply, address, solve, and get you back in the action.

What exactly does a Managed Service Provider do?

A Managed Service Provider is a third-party company that handles a company’s information technology (IT), network infrastructure, and computer systems. Small to medium sized-business, non-profits, and certain government agencies hire MSPs to perform day to day management of their technology services, such as network infrastructure management and security and monitoring.

IT Resources is your one-stop shop for all things IT! In speaking with Matt when needing to make an informed decision about a hardware purchase and subsequent software purchases after-the fact, he was knowledgable and thorough. The wealth of expertise and professionalism they bring to the table is second to none!

I have been working with the team at ITR for over a year now and I will say that they have raised the bar in IT. They hold their clients close to their hearts and are always there when they are needed. Even sometimes before the client knows there is a problem. I really like their proactive vs. reactive approach to security. I am happy to refer them for years to come.
