Don’t Let a Computer Meltdown Slow You Down: Partner with Us for Peace of Mind, Higher Productivity

We’ve all been there. Few things are more terrifying than a computer crash during an important project – particularly when that crash could cost your business substantially due to downtime, data loss, and other headaches.

Enter Network Services Group (NSG), an expert in network management services, among others. Our experienced team has worked in – and evolved with – the industry since our founding in 1989, now serving thousands throughout Arkansas.

While some problems are best left to IT pros, we’d like to share a few common crash culprits and how you and your employees can prevent them:

  1. Most people realize by now that you simply cannot work online without a quality anti-virus program, which should include an anti-spyware feature. Spyware can install harmful malware as you work online.
  2. Do not open suspicious emails – particularly attachments from unknown senders – or visit questionable websites. These actions make your computer more vulnerable to infection.
  3. Scheduling regular defragmentation and hard disk clean-up helps your computer operate more seamlessly, as will a frequent systems check. And keeping your system updated improves security.
  4. Check your applications to be sure you aren’t running too many programs for your system to handle, which can cause a crash.
  5. Keep your computer clean and well-ventilated, with enough space to allow proper air circulation. Avoid overheating, particularly if working on a laptop. Many devices contain fans to cool systems while in use.

You’ll love having NSG as your partner, particularly as it relates to handling – and preventing – crises:

  • Our support techs respond to hundreds of after-hour requests each year – and they do it within a half hour. Others sometimes claim to provide 24/7 support but don’t deliver, a problem you’ll never experience with us.
  • NSG is flexible in the techniques we use to address IT problems, as we are trained in the most advanced methods for solving any issue.
  • Hands down, we provide the best backup and disaster recovery planning and administration.

Uptime Equals Profitability: Does Your IT Company Virtually Eliminate Network Downtime?

We’ve discussed how reliable managed network services for business provide an essential building block. We’ve also offered tips on choosing an effective IT partner.

Network Services Group (NSG) now would like to emphasize how much a professional tech team impacts your bottom line.

The bottom line is that network uptime is essential for profitability. The less time spent wasted on tech problems, largely due to many IT companies’ antiquated break-fix approach, the more time spent getting the job done – whatever yours happens to be.

Part of our commitment to providing reliable and professional services entails making sure our team knows the ins and outs of the ever-changing managed IT services industry. We make sure your business has the most advanced technology and customized solutions to successfully accomplish your goals.

We’ve compiled yet another list outlining more attributes of quality network services for business:

  1. A proactive approach is a primary characteristic of any quality IT company. By adhering to this philosophy, companies like NSG are able to significantly reduce downtime, while increasing productivity.
  2. The right partner also allows you to reign in your tech budget by replacing billable hours (a classic break-fix approach) with a more predictable, monthly flat fee.
  3. While we’ve mentioned this before, it can’t be stressed enough that having reliable managed IT services allows you and your employees to spend more time on what you should be doing – your jobs. Many small- to medium-sized businesses can’t afford to have an IT person on staff. So employees end up taking on responsibilities that divert from primary duties.
  4. In addition to avoiding that hourly service fee to get your network back online, working with a good tech company will save you from losing money on payroll employees who can’t work and clients who cannot connect with you during downtime.

NSG has been in the business long enough to know what works and what doesn’t. We’d like to share that knowledge to help your company succeed.
