Business without managed services is more reactive, costly, and unpredictable. Consider the impact of unscheduled downtime, caused by a virus or technical failure. A Gartner study revealed that each unmanaged desktop costs businesses an average of $4000 a year, in emergency services, lost productivity and opportunity costs, with an annual total cost of ownership (TCO) that is typically 42% higher than for managed PCs and 29% higher for unmanaged laptops.

Wheelhouse Solutions delivers best-n-class monitoring and management of all your IT assets, with the use of hundreds of policy modules. Policy modules are sets of monitoring and alerting rules, developed in partnership with leading vendors, like Microsoft, Intel, Cisco, Symantec and others.

Detailed, accurate data also helps expedite diagnostics and resolution when IT issues do occur.
If the best case unfolds, one or more resources are taken off core business activities for partial or full duration of problem diagnosis and resolution, resulting in loss of productivity. If anything less than the best case unfolds, significantly more time is required to resolve the issue, resulting in more lost productivity on core business activities. In the worst case, additional, unplanned expenses are incurred, including the costs of downtime: reduced productivity and lost opportunities.
