Cloud infrastructure management
Cloud computing is a primary enabler of digital transformation through the delivery of secure, high-quality on-demand services that may include servers, software, network devices, and storage devices. Flexible and cost-effective, cloud infrastructure typically falls into three broad categories that include computing, networking, and storage.
Cloud computing is also reliable. Depending on the service level agreement, you can be guaranteed up to 99.99% uptime. Our comprehensive service agreements also include automated backups and disaster recovery plans that ensure your data is never lost.
Cloud application management
Cloud applications - or SaaS (Software as a Service) - allow your business to access the most recent, technologically innovative software for a monthly fee. Since it's subscription-based, it offers flexibility that gives you options on the programs you need and the number of users. It’s also convenient because the cloud services provider manages deployment and updates.
Cloud-based software can also be easily integrated with other programs, allowing for enhanced collaboration and increased productivity across departments. Popular examples include applications and management systems like Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, and Adobe Photoshop.
Virtual Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Services
Technology is evolving at an accelerated rate - faster than most businesses can keep up. That’s where the services of a virtual CTO come in.
A virtual CTO is a highly experienced technology expert that works with you to design custom IT initiatives, formulate tech strategies, and guide your company towards achieving its business goals. The experts at Standley Systems have decades of experience working with businesses of all types and sizes and are committed to adding long-term value to your business.
Managed IT Services Bring Major Advantages
An internal IT department is not the best option for every business. Most small and medium businesses don’t have the budget for the level of IT services required to compete on today’s business landscape - and that can result in a severe competitive disadvantage.
Managed IT services level the playing field by allowing smaller businesses to take advantage of the most advanced technological infrastructure and applications. Other benefits include:
Long-term cost savings with a small initial investment
MSPs offer high-quality critical IT services that can scale with the growth of your business.
That means you don’t have to invest in costly infrastructure or IT personnel, and have the flexibility to add or remove services as your needs change.
Managed IT services also provide budget stability with predictable monthly costs - without large unpredictable bills due to equipment failures or maintenance costs.
Improved user productivity
When you outsource IT services to an expert, your employees no longer have to concern themselves with time-consuming day-to-day troubleshooting or significant downtime when the network goes down. Managed IT services give you access to highly trained experts that get to the root of the problem fast - allowing IT employees to focus on company objectives instead of error messages and outdated equipment.
Managed IT keeps your business up to speed with the pace of technology
MSPs help smaller companies keep up with technological innovation, giving them freedom from costly equipment upgrades, maintenance, software licenses, and other tech-related costs that pile up over time. For a monthly fee, managed services allow businesses of all sizes to leverage first-in-class infrastructure and applications that increase productivity, efficiency and connectivity.
Immediate expert-level support
MSPs are experts in the field with a wide range of exposure to network, hardware, software, and connectivity issues across many types of businesses. With managed services, you have access to specialists that can identify the source of problems with maximum speed and resolve those issues in record time.
Enhanced cybersecurity and threat detection
Data security is an increasing concern as more businesses come online and into the cloud. Managed service providers are cybersecurity experts by default, and are always up to date and aware of the latest cybersecurity threats. Through onsite and network monitoring, MSPs protect your network 24 hours a day, seven days a week to stop threats in their tracks and immediately neutralize issues before they become serious problems.

According to a recent CompTIA study, nearly two-thirds (64%) of organizations use MSPs for at least one IT function. Is your business ready to join the digital revolution?
