Managed IT Services for Manufacturing Companies

Technology Consulting, Services and Support for the Manufacturing Industry

Fierce global competition has forced US manufacturers to adopt new technology and evolve their business models.

As a result, IT is everywhere in a modern manufacturing environment; from the machines that perform tightly controlled production work, to the external machinery that controls those machines.

Manufacturers must have their operational and business systems in alignment to stay operational and profitable in the face of unique challenges – whether it’s production or supply chain problems, safety or compliance issues, or even everyday logistical challenges.

At Ntiva, we understand what technology solutions can mean to manufacturers aiming to keep pace with today’s fast-moving market.

We also understand that the deployment and management of that technology can be problematic with so many moving pieces. That's why our in-depth experience with small to mid-sized manufacturers offers growing companies the tools and expertise they are looking for to manage and protect their technology investments.

IT Solutions to Address Manufacturing Industry Challenges

Maintaining Uptime

Maintaining Uptime

Maintaining uptime is the age-old IT challenge of manufacturing. Downtime (especially of the unplanned variety) can kill profit margins in a flash and create havoc.

A 2021 global study found that, on average, medium-to-large-sized plants lose 323 production hours to downtime per year.

But regardless of a manufacturing facility’s size, the costs to productivity – and the bottom line - build up:

  • Lost revenue
  • Financial penalties
  • Idle staff time
  • Restarting lines

That’s why the key to maintaining your uptime (or reducing downtime) is implementing a robust data backup and disaster recovery solution that forms the foundation for business continuity.

Ntiva supports your business’ continuity with:

  • Onsite and offsite daily backups
  • Cloud Backups as a second line of defense
  • Emergency Response Planning, training and procedures
  • Encryption of backed-up files
Managing Growth and Scalability

Managing Growth and Scalability

Shifting market demands and new tech innovations create new challenges, making existing processes and equipment obsolete.

But, integrating legacy systems with the latest applications and platforms to improve production quality and efficiency can be a huge challenge, requiring significant fluctuations in resources and manpower, as well as forcing some tough decisions regarding employment and budget issues.

Working with a managed services provider like Ntiva gives your business expert insight on the best way to optimize your technology resources, as well as experienced support in the design, implementation, and support of any new technology strategy.

Managing Cybersecurity

Managing Cybersecurity

From data breaches to hacks, manufacturing companies face the very real potential of significant losses from cyber events.

A successful cyberattack on a manufacturer can be devastating: Not only are money and intellectual property at stake, but a successful takedown of any part of the manufacturing process can halt production – potentially for days.

In addition, the growth of IoT devices and networks are making these businesses even more vulnerable to attacks. Experts forecast that the rate of industrial cyberattacks will only increase over the next decade.

IT solutions for manufacturing must offer robust cybersecurity services that can help manufacturers minimize these risks.

Ntiva keeps your business secure with:

  • 24/7 security monitoring
  • Security management and remediation provided by a dedicated team of cyber experts
  • Layered protection, starting with a security assessment and offering high availability SOC, SIEM and more
  • Access to skilled cybersecurity consultants, including Virtual CISO services

For those manufacturing companies operating as a government contractor, Ntiva is accredited to provide CMMC consulting and support to Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC) in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
