Why Managed Services?

You can afford to have your own IT department.

Having IT professionals looking after your updates, security and back-ups keeps your business running smoothly, your data secure and gives you professional and friendly support if anything does go wrong.  

Managed services are cost effective because we do not need to charge you an hourly rate, we have many clients that all have similar needs, and we meet those needs at the same time! If something does go wrong, you receive prompt service from a local company you can trust. 

Personalize service from a local company, with world class software and hardware to support your business goals. Sounds good right? 

But do YOU need it?

Here are a few questions to help you make that decision, you can also book a Business IT consult if you would like a review of your needs and discover what solutions we can provide

What if?

What would happen if your computers didn’t work anymore?

Can your business operate without computers? If you are like us, you may as well shut your doors if your computers aren’t functioning. This used to be the case when the power went out, now for most people it’s also the case when the computers are down.

What can cause computer down time?

    • Hardware failure (some physical component of your computer fails)
    • Human error. One wrong click on the internet. One wrong file deleted
    • Viruses
    • Hackers

How long can you go without your computer and/or your data?

    • Can you be down 2 weeks? 1 week? A day? Hours?
    • How much will down time cost you
    • What if you could never get your files back?

What can be done to prevent or at least reduce the risk of this happening to you?

  1. Create a risk tolerance plan for your business.
  2. Keep up on your critical updates (windows and other software).
  3. Keep antivirus functioning and up to date.
  4. Do preventative maintenance.
  5. System monitoring (so things can be fixed before they cause problems).
  6. Web protection (block known bad sites and such)
  7. Backup. Backup!

Most of this can be done by you or your in-house staff.  Things to consider are:

    • Staff time costs? (what does 15 to 30min per computer everyday add up to?)
    • Are they actually doing it?
    • Are they doing it right?

Or we could look after these things for you!

Lowered Stress Level

“We would very much like to thank all of you at ACS Computer Solutions for all the great work you do for us, and thank you also for my much lowered stress level and peace of mind.   Don’t know what we would do without you.”

-Shelley R, D and D logging (managed services client)

Friendly and Helpful

“I’ve found the guys at ACS to be very friendly and helpful whenever I’ve had an issue or needed new hardware,”

– Hans Peter Meyer.

Reliable PC Tech Support

 “We have used ACS Computers for many years as one of our very few trusted technology and computer providers. In our business we cannot afford to be down for very long. We need reliable PC tech support and hardware that won’t let us down. Andre and his crew have provided that for us. And their prices are usually better than the “big guys” which makes it easy to shop local.”

-Bryan, ABC Printing & Signs

Professional, Expert and Up-to-Date Advice

 “ACS Computer Solutions has always provided us with professional, expert and up-to-date advice. They are always ready to assist us when we’re in a bind and go the extra mile when we have questions for our business needs and concerns. In such a time of rapid technological change, it’s nice to know we can call ACS Computer Solutions and have peace of mind with managing our i.t. needs ~ and they’re really nice guys!”

-Comox District Teachers’ Association

Solutions That Nobody Else Offered

“I discovered ACS around 2007 – A place where I could sometimes find parts that nobody else carried, solutions that nobody else offered, at prices that not many could beat. Add integrity, add a great attitude towards customer service, and I was hooked! When I opted to rejoin the world with scheduled paychecks, I didn’t hesitate to point my customer base over to ACS. Don’t think twice about calling (say hi to Thom and Andre for me!) and I don’t think you will ever regret it!”

-Andrea FullerT

Non-Profit Organization Budget, Excels in Customer Service

 “It is so important that we have an I.T. company that understands the limitations of our type of non-profit organization. With a strict budget and a small staff, we need a team that can work within these parameters but that still excels in customer service and continually offers value for our computing needs. It is for this reason, ACS has been a perfect fit for our society.”

-Lisa M. Iverson, Operations Manager, UPPER ISLAND WOMEN OF NATIVE ANCESTRY

A Solid Company to Work With

 “ACS Computer Solutions is a solid company to work with, the staff are quick to respond to our requests, always ready to problem solve and stick with a challenge until it’s overcome.  To us, they’re an extension of our work family!  They’re a terrific team!”

-Dianne Hawkins, CEO, Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce

Always Treated Very Well

“All the staff at ACS computers has always treated me and my company very well, they are willing to do office and house calls to help sort things out, even when the problem is between the keyboard and the chair. I have purchased a few computers, lap tops etc from them, each time they helped me to chose equipment appropriate to my needs, and they have never tried to up sell me something I did not need. I will continue to use their services in the future. Thank you for all your help.”

-Larry Poirier, President, Larry Poirier Construction Ltd

Speed and Competence

“I’ve been buying computers from ACS for almost 10 years. I have specific needs for my computing. I send Andre the list of what I need, and he makes that happen.  I can’t get that from any of the big box stores. I appreciate the speed and competence of the service I receive. And the one time I chose to buy a computer somewhere else, only reinforced for me how good the crew at ACS is.”

-Carrie Reid, Mostly Salish Consulting

Always There For Us

“CV Marine Ltd have been using ACS Computers since 2011 when we first started up our business.  They were great on helping us getting things started from a point of sale systems to our server and accounting computers.  They have always been there for us when we have a problem and/or needed to upgrade any of our system.  I would recommend them to anyone that wants a company that looks after their customers.”
