What are Managed Services?

As you research and investigate IT services and support for your business, you might see the term “managed services”.  But just what exactly is that?  On the highest level, Managed Services is an arrangement for the information technology assets of a business – e.g. computers, networks, printers, point-of-sale systems, websites, databases – to be managed by a third party vendor, called a managed service provider (MSP).  Millcore Computing is a managed service provider serving the Columbia, SC area and the midlands.  We have three different plans that fit the needs of any small business.  Here are three great reasons to consider a managed service plan from Millcore Computing.

1) An IT Department for Your Small Business

It is too risky and inefficient to leave your network unmanaged, but full-time IT help doesn’t make sense for most small businesses.  Managed IT is the best balance to have your network professionally managed at a fraction of the cost of dedicated IT staff.

2) Proactive, not Reactive Support

With managed IT, proactive steps are taken to make sure that your systems are running efficiently, that your backups are reliable, and that your network is secure.  Your network and systems are continuously monitored, and quick action is taken to mitigate threats, outages, and incidents.  Potential issues are identified early through monitoring, alerts, and maintenance before they become a problem.

3) The Right Partnership

Managed IT brings out the best in both sides of the partnership.  Your incentive is to work on your business and let Millcore handle your technology.  Millcore’s incentive is 100% fully functional uptime.  Everybody wins.

Chris is a genius! I scheduled a consultation with him to analyze my current IT set up and he offered solutions that have increased my connections and therefore increased my productivity. I would highly recommend using his services and allowing him the opportunity to educate you on the proper equipment and set up tailored to your specific needs.

A HUGE thank you to Chris Ruffin at Millcore Computing for fixing an issue we were having with our quickbooks not sending forms. It wasn't the program itself, so Chris did his magic behind the scenes and BAM- it's working now! If you're having any IT issues, contact Chris!!!

Several of my friends have used Millcore Computing and have had great results. I saw where they've won multiple IT awards, including Best of the State in 2019 and 2020 so I contacted Chris to set up an appointment for service. Their new location is convenient and professional. Chris is great to deal with and really knows his stuff. He was able to take care of my computer issue quickly and less expensively than one of the local competitors. I highly recommend Chris and Millcore Computing for all of your IT services.

Chris Ruffin with Millcore Computing is fantastic to work with. My husband Jeff Gray owns a small local business called The Painter Guys. I took over his computer to help him get organized with labor, scheduling and finances. Chris set up the computer with everything we need to have a well managed PC. He is always available when we need help and quickly resolves the problem. He has also taken an old computer of mine and somehow managed to retrieve files on there that i could not do on my own. Millcore computing and Chris Ruffin are the way to go for all your IT and computer consulting needs.

Chris is so wonderful to deal with and so knowledgeable. Everything computer is over my pay grade! He even got me straight over the phone! It was actually a simple fix, but had I not talked with him I would never have been able to get what I needed done and I was in a time crunch. This company is one I will be using for a long time and I recommend if you are reading this that you use them also.
