What’s Our 5-year plan?

This is a simple concept, but it’s almost always overlooked by IT clients. Have you ever asked us what our macro business plan is?

You may be surprised by what you find out. Some companies are simply seeking more and more clients in order to grow their value and seek a buyout. Others are looking to rapidly expand and diversify. Often, our business plan, if realized, can affect the quality of service the clients receive.

Make sure to keep this in mind and keep an eye on us as we grow and develop. It may give you insight into changes in service quality, or potential new offerings we may be able to make available to you.

How do we handle renewal/termination of service?

Always have an exit strategy—there’s a chance that you’ll find managed services in general, or we, in particular, aren’t right for you. Or, the opposite could happen: you’ll be perfectly satisfied with the services and will want to renew them.

That’s why it’s smart to know how the renewal/termination process will work ahead of time:

  • Should the managed services contract terminate, or does it require a monthly or annual renewal?
  • Will you incur any penalties for ending your service before the expiration date?
  • What is considered acceptable, in the contract, for us to cancel the agreement on our end?

What is their track record?

Whether this is The Miller Group you’re considering or your current IT support company, it’s important to look at the capabilities in the most exact terms available.

  • Do they have KPIs, benchmarks, scorecards, or other qualitative trackers available for review?
  • What is their CSAT, and how has it changed over time?
  • What stats can they provide on your service ticket resolutions over the past quarter?

What do our other clients say?

No matter how great an IT support company may seem, remember that you can’t take their word for it; or, not entirely. It’s important to seek testimonials and case studies about a potential partner before you sign on the dotted line.

Furthermore, where available, it’s a good idea to talk to our other clients. Whether it’s a peer group, a monthly happy hour get-together, or an annual appreciation client social, this is a great opportunity to find out how other clients are benefitting from our services and whether you could change your approach to service usage.

It’s Never Too Late To Know More

The bottom line is that you should always be striving to make better use of the investment you’ve made in IT services. The Miller Group doesn’t disengage clients to pay hundreds or thousands a month just for the occasional password reset or workstation installation. When you pay attention, the better ROI you’ll get.
