How To Interview Your Prospective IT Provider

Information technology (IT) is now intertwined with business. Reliable IT hardware and tools are needed to retain business security, relevance, and competitiveness. Hence, it would be best if you were thorough in choosing an IT partner who is both an expert and trustworthy. Here are the aspects you should focus on when selecting IT providers.

After-Sales Service

Providers put their best foot forward to get you onboard. However, how good is their IT support afterward? Do they have knowledgeable and courteous representatives in case you encounter technical difficulties? Are their agents available 24/7? Are they capable of providing clear and concise instructions to a layman?

Can they deliver the assistance and results on or before agreed deadlines for more complicated issues without going beyond any set budget? At BetterWorld Technology, we excel in the initial stages and during unexpected situations.

Network Maintenance

IT systems need constant upkeep to remain secure and effective. How often and in-depth does the provider perform maintenance services? In terms of accessibility, will your staff be granted monitoring privileges, or is access strictly limited to the provider?

Equally important is cost. Do they offer network maintenance services as part of a package, or do these services cost extra? How often do they increase the additional charge if it's the latter?

Data or System Loss Contingency

Data is vital to any business, so your IT provider should have contingency measures in case your data gets lost or corrupted. Can they restore damaged data? In the worst-case scenario, do they securely store redundancies or data backups?

If your system glitches or gets compromised, can they quickly bring it back to full operation? Is there a temporary alternative system that your business can use to continue operations unhampered?

Cybersecurity Insurance

Great managed service providers supply excellent IT support and assist you in securing and claiming cybersecurity insurance. Many providers offer no service on this aspect, so finding one that does is an upside.

Can the IT provider guide you in selecting the right cybersecurity insurance? Will they help you get your application approved? When claiming insurance proceeds, can you rely on them to provide supporting evidence to facilitate collection? Having an IT partner that has your back on these insurance matters can significantly lighten the load.
