Managing IT in-house can be expensive, time-consuming and counter-productive. Unless your core business is IT Support, why maintain your own IT department?

A Team of IT Specialists on Call Whenever You Need Them

In the day-to-day running of any business, it can be difficult to identify an underperforming IT infrastructure. Issues such as an overloaded server, outdated hardware, an unsecured firewall, VPN, or FTP may not bring your operations to a standstill, but they do make you vulnerable to data loss, and have an adverse effect on the efficiency and productivity of your entire system. Whilst an in-house IT manager may be able to manage minor issues as they arise, to institute systematic change and optimise the performance of a commercial IT system, you need a team of experts, and that's where AWD's managed services come in.

The first step is a security audit

The first thing our IT professionals do is to perform an audit of your IT infrastructure to determine how each system in your network communicates and is performing. We assess not only the operation, performance and lifespan of your hardware, but also your operating systems, security, and endpoints, as well as internet and phone connections. This enables us to pinpoint the areas in each system which are failing or improperly configured and causing errors or downtime as a result. From there, we'll be able to develop an effective management plan that aligns with your business objectives.
