  • Round-the-Clock Support: IT managed services often include 24/7 support, ensuring that critical issues can be addressed promptly at any time.

3. Cost-Effective Solutions:

  • Predictable Costs: Managed services often operate on a subscription-based model, providing predictable monthly costs that help manufacturers budget effectively.
  • Reduced Capital Expenses: Outsourcing IT management eliminates the need for substantial upfront investments in hardware and software.

Customer Service!

I think the biggest thing is customer service, whenever we contact CD Technology, we always get a live person.  Any computer issues we have are always fixed in a timely manner.  CD Technology is better than our previous IT company because you are able to get a live person on the first call, no waiting and rarely no call-backs.  I would recommend them because of the response time, no waiting and same day service if needed to come on site
