Why Accounting Firms and Financial Advisors Are Turning to Managed Services

managed services for accounting firms and financial advisors

Accounting firms and financial advisors need the right technology and expertise to run their businesses successfully. But maintaining networks and servers, upgrading hardware, updating software, meeting compliance requirements, and protecting sensitive information — all while supporting client needs — is a limitation many face. It can be downright impossible for small and medium-sized firms to keep up with.

In a time when technology plays a huge role in the financial industry — from communication to customer service to charting the past and planning for the future — it’s critical to maintain a robust I.T. infrastructure.

Leveraging Managed Services

Many small and medium-sized accounting firms and financial advisors use managed services to accommodate their technical needs and stay competitive. This is a highly successful support model in which a firm outsources their I.T. to trusted technology professionals who provide proactive 24/7 monitoring and maintenance of their computer systems.

This I.T. support model stands in stark contrast to the traditional “break/fix” model dependent upon I.T. systems having issues before a technician is dispatched. In a managed services support scenario, technicians are constantly working behind the scenes to secure, stabilize, and streamline I.T. operations.
