The Challenge: An Inflexible Existing Landscape
Your IT team can be one of your greatest assets, but when your team is bogged down by routine admin tasks, troubleshooting, and more, they aren’t able to focus on strategic IT initiatives.
Uptime Institute’s 2022 Outage Analysis Report found that over 60% of outages cost more than $100,000. Downtime continues to become an increasingly high cost to incur. Not only is it a financial strain, but a strain on your IT team. While your team is busy remediating shutdowns and slowdowns, the projects that drive your business forward fall to the side.
When deciding where to start, New Direction wanted to focus on unburdening their internal IT talent. This meant looking closely at inflexible on-premises systems that were not adaptable to unexpected interruptions, complex systems with little integration, and strategic setbacks that caused their IT team to shift their focus to troubleshooting slowdowns.
Our Strategy: Fully Outsourced Managed Services
PEI worked with this customer to set up a fully outsourced Managed Services plan focused on proactivity and strategic IT planning.
PEI put a user helpdesk in place and took over day-to-day administration tasks to allow internal IT talent to focus on strategic IT initiatives.
New Direction company took advantage of the vCIO sessions included in their Managed Services Plan to create a roadmap for moving their business forward strategically.
Once the road map was in place, New Direction contracted PEI to migrate their systems to a cloud-based infrastructure and create a more agile IT environment.
