Managed Services

What Is Managed Service?

Managed Service is an outsourcing alternative for companies who want a lower cost, lower risk solution for their technology infrastructure investment. Equivus Communications manages and delivers these services from the clients or our data center to multiple users via the Internet or a private network, giving our customers viable alternatives to procuring and implementing complex systems themselves. The applications will look and function the same as one purchased by an organization. The only difference is whether it is running on a central server managed by Equivus Communications as opposed to an employee's desktop or the company's server.

Services that are managed include:
  • Technology infrastructure and support services
