Managed Services

Managed Services

Businesses must increasingly do more with less in today's competitive environment, especially when it comes to headcount dedicated to managing and maintaining complex IT systems. Outsourcing these functions can consistently upgrade your coverage from a single employee's 8 to 5 schedule to the 24/7 peace of mind that LMT's Managed Services provides.  We not only function as your IT department but we can fill the role of the Chief Information Officer for your organization. 

The costs of owning and maintaining the infrastructure required to properly monitor your systems' health and status are becoming prohibitive. When you factor in labor, hardware and software required to monitor and manage the typical enterprise network, it's no wonder businesses are looking to LMT to provide a consistent, reasonable monthly investment for their complete communications solution.

Some find predictability boring. We disagree. How often have you spent hours resolving an unplanned, high-profile outage? Nobody wants to be diverted from an important project to triage your reputation from negative publicity generated by out-of-date software or a security breach.  LMT's proactive approach to managed services will improve your organization's IT risk management, system control and flexibility. Your network system will be monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to prevent costly downtime. The system will alert you, and LMT, of any anomalies immediately, as well as apply administrative updates to your system to keep your software at peak performance.
