Ask the Right Questions to Find the Right IT Services Partner

Chicago IT services

You've decided it's time to outsource your IT infrastructure to a professional IT Services Provider. You've made a wise choice—one that will give your Chicago company disruption-free network and servers and your staff time to focus on core business objectives.

The Crucial Questions

Now that you've made the decision to outsource, the next critical step is to choose an IT Services Partner. If you've already begun searching, you know there's a long list of providers from which to choose. How do you go about finding the perfect match for your company's unique requirements? To begin with, a prepared list of questions can help narrow down your choices. Here's a good start:

  1. Can you explain why we should select your IT Services plan over another company's offering? A confident IT Services Provider will be more than happy to tell you about their organization. In particular, be sure to ask about company history, awards and accreditations, and recent successes.

  2. We're in a unique industry with specific requirements. Do you offer customized solutions? Crafting a customized solution takes extra time. If the IT Services Provider you're interviewing wants to plug you into an existing plan, keep looking. Trust your IT infrastructure to a partner with experience with a variety of different industries and businesses.

  3. What is your approach to server maintenance? Conventional break-fix models take a wait-and-see approach to server maintenance. A proactive approach will ensure servers that run smoothly, protect your data, and allow your team to focus on growing your business.

  4. What about Data Backup and Disaster Recovery? Your data is the lifeblood of your Chicago business. Make sure the IT Services partner you choose has a proven solution for keeping your data safe in case the worst happens.
