Managed Services

Professional IT support, with a personal touch

The break/Fix IT support is a broken model!  It's reactive, unpredictable, and the interests of the customer and vendor are not aligned.  Managed Services provides a subscription based model for proactive, strategic IT support provided by a trusted partner.

Key Benefits of a Managed Service:

  • Aligned Interests
  • Proactive Approach
  • Predictable Costs
  • Scalable
  • Let's you focus on your core business
  • Greater Resource Availability
  • Reduced Downtime
    • Fewer occurrences, and shorter timeframes when emergencies do occur
  • Improved User Efficiency

However, not every Managed Service Provider (MSP) is created equally.

Why Laketec?

We are fully staffed with tier 1,2, and 3 Engineers who are responsible for ticket resolution.  Your Lead Engineer will be there to drive holistic solutions and to serve as an escalation point for the rest of the team supporting your account.  Our Service Coordinators are a key differentiator at Laketec.  They front end all customer communication and are responsible for getting you to the right Engineer in a timely manner and handling communication with you along the way.  We also provide a dedicated Project Manager for larger jobs outside of the MSP agreement.  Our General Manager serves an additional escalation point.  Finally, you will have an assigned Account Executive who will meet with you quarterly, or at your desired interval, to review the state and direction of your environment.
