“I love managed services. It is awesome to have someone to help you troubleshoot, not to mention the monitoring means I don’t have to worry about the site staying live when I’m not at work. Given how essential uptime is for ecommerce, we don’t want to compromise our results or customer trust with a site that is down. Our team isn’t 24×7, so it’s important to our success that someone is always watching the site.”
Tony Trew, Director of Marketing
