Managed IT Services and Support With Ntiva

Gain access to top IT expertise, reduce IT costs & increase operational efficiency!

What Are Managed IT Services?

With the goal of simplifying IT operations and reducing costs, managed services enable businesses to outsource part or all of their technology management. 

A Managed Services Provider (MSP) can take the burden of managing your business technology services off your shoulders. This can range from completely outsourcing your IT needs, to arranging for co-managed services with your existing in-house team.

Ntiva is one of the top 50 MSPs in the U.S., offering more than 250 technicians who are ready to serve you around the clock. We offer competitive pricing based on a flat-rate monthly subscription service, which includes unlimited remote support provided by a U.S.-based help desk.

Our team of world-class talent genuinely cares about our relationships and providing solutions to your business needs. We understand that response, accuracy and care are the fundamental keys to a successful, long-term partnership.

How Do Businesses Allocate Their Managed Services and IT Support Budgets?

In a Spiceworks survey of more than 1,000 companies across North America and Europe, the top technology concerns for businesses include the need to upgrade outdated IT infrastructure and improve security.

Here’s how businesses are investing in managed service providers:

Average Managed IT Services Budget Allocations

Should You Keep IT In-House or Outsource?

Businesses that outsource technology responsibilities to managed service providers often see a huge improvement in their overall operational efficiencies with only modest impact on their IT budget. This is critical, because nearly half of IT executives feel their budgets are either somewhat or very inadequate to meet the needs of their business.

Before you decide whether to keep your IT in-house or choose managed services, you should weigh the pros and cons of each option.

On one hand, in-house technology services likely have an inside, intimate view of how your company operates. However, an in-house team is much more challenging to scale up or down. As your business grows, they can become overwhelmed. This can mean important routine tasks get dropped, or staff may adopt a break/fix mentality—waiting until a specific service is needed and hiring an expensive solution provider to fix it—all of which increases your security risk and hurts employee productivity. 

Conversely, choosing managed services allows you to scale according to your needs, guaranteeing an ability to quickly ramp up during a crisis. But not all managed services providers offer the same quality of service, so research and verification are needed before signing up.

What Managed IT Services Does Ntiva Offer?

Ntiva provides a full spectrum of managed services to support organizations that lack the time or talent to manage their technology in-house to the level they desire. Our team of more than 200 experienced, trusted engineers, programmers, analysts and consultants is ready to handle all of your IT needs.

us-based-help-desk

US-Based 24/7 Service Desk

Many service providers guarantee that your call will be answered promptly—but by whom? At Ntiva, we offer a US-based service desk that is staffed with trained technicians (not call agents) who solve most problems on the spot. We also let you “self-triage” your problem, which means you can call in 24/7/365 for any problem—no matter how big or how small. IT help desk solutions are a big benefit of a managed service provider, so make sure you're getting the best!

remote-it-support

Remote IT Support

The most common tech support solutions needed are end-user issues, such as inability to connect to the internet, a slow or "frozen" computer, lost passwords, inability to print, or difficulty logging in. We can solve these IT problems remotely using tools that allow full access to your network and systems. Ntiva remote support technology services includes installation of software, cloud services, advanced troubleshooting and repairs of applications, and more—cost-effectively keeping your staff up and running.
onsite-support

On-Site Support

With the growing popularity of cloud-based services, many IT support tasks are done remotely. But there are still issues where on-site solutions are either desired or required. Ntiva always sends a technician to your site for problems we cannot solve remotely. We also offer regularly scheduled on-site services. Talk to us about our on-site support plans to see which one is best suited for your needs.
server-mgmt

Server and Workstation Management

One of the most important ways service providers can protect your business from cyberattacks is to keep your software and operating systems up to date. Failure to do so means you not only miss out on new features, you also open the door wide to hackers who look for companies that haven’t bothered with the latest security updates. If you lack the staff to manage this on a regular basis, Ntiva will take over responsibility for this critical task to ensure business continuity with automated software updates, patch solutions, and security updates, including antivirus and antispam.

network-monitoring

Network Monitoring and Management


Want to keep your IT environment running at top performance? Managed services provide around-the-clock monitoring and management of all the components in your network, including routers, firewalls, and switches. Our automated systems detect and report failures of devices and connections as we proactively monitor your computers, servers, and other network elements. Ntiva offers two levels of service: Essential and Premium Monitoring & Management.

cyber-security

Cyber Security

Security is a huge concern for every business, but very few organizations have the resources to effectively combat cyber threats and attacks. Access to sophisticated, 24/7 cyber security protection is one of the top reasons businesses hire a Managed Services Provider. Click here to learn more about Ntiva’s Managed Security Services.
disaster-recovery-plan

Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR)

Today’s businesses are creating more data than ever before, and protecting that data is a priority. This calls for a robust data backup and disaster recovery solution that forms the foundation for business continuity. Your data backup and disaster recovery system is one of the most important investments for protecting your company. Ntiva helps you choose, deploy and manage the back up and recovery solution that’s best for your business. Many of our managed services include multiple options that will meet your backup and recovery needs.

microsoft-licensing

Microsoft Office 365 Licensing

Ntiva is a Microsoft Gold Partner with more than 16 years of experience in providing solutions and services for Microsoft applications, including Office 365, Azure and SharePoint. We help your business select the right Microsoft products and plans, help you migrate from your current solution, and provide ongoing management along with our US-based 24/7/365 service desk. Your productivity software is another important cornerstone of managed services!
Hardware Procurement

Hardware and Software Procurement

Evaluating, purchasing, and installing hardware and software is a time-consuming process. Ntiva has the knowledge and skills to help you determine the right licensing agreements and hardware for your business. We manage the procurement process end to end—from installing, maintaining, and upgrading your systems, through to retiring old hardware. Our solutions also allow for better pricing thanks to our bulk-buying power and our direct relationships with many key distributors.
mobile-support

Bring Your Own Device and Mobile Support

When employees bring their own devices into the workplace, mobile device security becomes a challenge. Although mobile devices increase employee productivity, improperly managed devices can be a major security risk. Many clients rely on our managed services for advice on how to protect their mobile environment. Typically, we start with creating a custom Bring Your Own Device policy. We can also help you evaluate a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution and other best practices for keeping your devices safe.

We'll Guide You Through the Onboarding Process

At Ntiva, we pride ourselves on delivering an excellent customer experience from day one—and our comprehensive onboarding process is a key part of this experience.

Our onboarding process consists of four phases:

onboarding-process

Phase 1: Service Definition

At the beginning of any managed services onboarding, the definition of services is a crucial part of the entire process. We discuss every service outlined in the signed Service Agreement. This process helps our team gain in-depth understanding of your business in preparation for the onsite data gathering, process documentation and ongoing support services.

Phase 2: Data Collection

Our technicians visit your site to gather information about your information technology environment and to begin the documentation process. They work their way through an extensive engineering checklist of discovery items and procedures, covering such things as network investigation, security assessment, backup verification, server room inspections and policy documentation.

Phase 3: Internal Information Review

The primary goal of this phase is to ensure that your IT environment will meet your needs and that you’ll have the technology in place to help your business grow. We gather the information collected in Phase 2 and review it with your dedicated team (alongside our specialized senior technicians if needed).

Phase 4: Orientation Meeting and Service Handoff

Your Ntiva team meets with you to review your new client manual. This review includes a discussion of all findings, including recommendations for additional changes. It also includes the final tailoring of support procedures if needed. We schedule any recurring onsite visits and set up the cadence for recurring meetings between you and your Account Manager.
