Main Disadvantages of ad-hoc IT Support services

With ad-hoc IT support services, we provide support when you contact us to request for a service. The main disadvantage and potential problem with this type of support is the fact that your IT system is not monitored, and more importantly the fact that by the time you as the client notices a problem it could already be a disaster – for this reason we recommend ad-hoc support for companies that only run workstations or for project work – whereas companies that run server based systems we always highly recommend managed support services.
