Partnering with Marathon Consulting as your managed IT service provider gives you the opportunity to delegate responsibility for your IT network to our team of expert engineers. You can rely on m|Watch, m|Protect and other proprietary Marathon systems to keep IT issues out of sight and out of mind. Marathon saves your business lost time and unnecessary headaches.
Here are some of the essential ways working with Marathon Consulting contributes to making your company more efficient and profitable:
> Routine Check-ups. One of the most important ways to maintain your network is through regular reviews of your hardware and software. m|Watch, Marathon’s exclusive monitoring and maintenance service, routinely tests your hard drives, servers, and other physical aspects of your workstations to ensure they’re in excellent working order. Marathon also regularly completes routine check-ups to enhance the performance of your computer software, memory and other core functions.
> Security and Updates. It’s extremely important to stay up to date with all of the security threats that are a part of life online. A basic way to protect your network is to make sure your software is running the most recent versions of each program and consistently update security patches on your computers. This practice goes a long way toward minimizing outside security threats. Marathon clients can rest assured these vital tasks are taken care of on their behalf.
> License Renewals. When it comes time to expand your company, you’ll need to consider how adding users will affect the licensing agreements of your software. There is usually a limit on the number of workstations that can use the software granted by a single license. You could run out of devices to operate the software on or even lose the software altogether from an expired license. Marathon engineers keep track of the requirements of your software’s licensing and work with you when it’s time to expand your business.
These are just a few of the ways Marathon works to maximize the effectiveness of your company’s network. Partnering with a managed IT service provider to take care of these issues saves you time, money, and frustration.
