Our 3 Step Process to make
IT Easy for All Businesses
It is important for businesses to understand managed IT service agreements in order to ensure that their systems are functioning properly, secure, and optimized. Dark Blue Technologies provides a clear process to help businesses achieve this. Through their partnership process, they establish a Service Level Agreement (SLA) that outlines the services required and how they will be provided – including access rights and responsibilities, cost breakdowns, security measures and more.
This helps customers know what to expect from their managed IT service provider. This process also establishes an ongoing communication channel between the customer and Dark Blue Technologies, so any problems can be identified quickly and addressed in real time.
Step 1: Establishing a Partnership with Dark Blue Technologies
At the beginning of an IT managed service relationship, the provider and customer must establish a partnership. This is usually done through a signed agreement or Service Level Agreement (SLA) that outlines what services need to be provided, how they will be provided, and when they will be available. The SLA should include any additional items such as access rights and responsibilities, cost breakdowns, security measures and more.
Once these parameters are established, both parties can move ahead knowing exactly what each one expects from the other. An important part of this process is establishing an ongoing communication channel between the customer and Dark Blue Technologies so that problems can be identified quickly and addressed in real time.
Step 2: Monitoring and Maintaining IT Systems
Once the contract is in place, Dark Blue Technologies can begin monitoring your IT systems on a regular basis. This includes both proactive and reactive maintenance to ensure that all components are functioning properly. Proactive maintenance tasks may include patching software, updating firmware, running system tests, creating backups and more. Reactive maintenance tasks involve responding quickly to any issues or incidents that arise, such as hardware failure or an unexpected virus outbreak. With these measures in place, you can be confident that your systems will be running smoothly and securely at all times.
Step 3: Assessing Performance and Optimizing for Success
