The more technical equipment you own, the more money IT ﬁrms make. That's long been a little "secret" about the business. But if you're a normal small business, you might not need a bunch of equipment in your server room.
Many services work well in the cloud - where the servers live outside your ofﬁce. We'll get you a fast and secure connection to the Internet. And we recommend two connections so you have a backup connection in case one goes down.
Because we do a little bit of work with a lot of companies, we'll only recommend equipment that we think will save you money.
When Calera called Mann, they knew they were on pace to hire an in-house resource right away. But they needed an experienced team of people to get them up and running quickly.
Because Mann is authorized to sell both Macs and PCs, it took a single phone call. Mann provided networking, a ﬁle server, software, plus all the Macs and PCs required for the new hires.
After six months, Calera hired a full-time IT person. But rather than do this in a hush-hush way, they involved Mann's consulting team, to prepare for it, provide documentation, even to review candidate resumes.
Calera reduced its Mann support knowing that if the need arises, we're a phone call away.
Jane's hired us at the last three companies she's worked. Do you feel that strongly about your IT provider?
They feel the work is beneath them. They want to do the cool projects. But you just need help, without fuss or having to make sure you get them on a "good" day.
Your employees come up with workarounds, some stop bothering to call for support. And most CFO's don't feel technically equipped to effectively manage their IT person. Many companies have to cope with difﬁcult IT people.
The size of your network should not determine the quality of your support. At Mann, we strive to provide the highest quality care with personal attention, conﬁdential and discreet handling of your information, and business-based advice and solutions
We help small businesses. Satellite ofﬁces of larger companies. Startups. Creative departments of large networks. Residential networks
Mann provides an essential safety-net for the firm’s technical operations. If the IT manager is out sick or on vacation, Dennis doesn’t have to worry about security, uptime or his employees’ productivity.
If Dennis has concerns about his IT manager’s performance or wants a second opinion on a technical proposal, he calls his Mann consultant.
So while many CFO’s lie awake at night worrying about what would happen if their IT person were to leave abruptly, Dennis is covered by using his Mann discount support plan. He receives consulting hours that don’t expire, priority scheduling, and the strength of an entire IT department without the salary burden.
Mann helps Dennis focus on running his business. Allow us to introduce ourselves.
If you're being asked to lower your email storage by your IT department, it might be time to have "the talk" - the one where you explain that you can go to a retail store and buy 1,000 gigabytes of storage inexpensively but that you have to keep your inbox smaller. You don't have time for that.
When your employees start going home to get real work done, or using their personal email accounts because work email is too restrictive, you have a problem. We can help remove the productivity barriers that impede your workflow. By using best-in-class solutions that don't carry any conflict of interest (we don't have salespeople who need to sell you things), we can recommend the best products and services.
IT departments used to control everything. Now they're fighting to keep that control, but information workers have caught on - they've learned how self-reliant they can be. We help businesses bridge the gap so that the IT people can ensure security is preserved, and the non-technical business people can get work done.
And they ended our support knowing that if the need arises, we're a phone call away.
