Interested in finding out what managed cloud services might cost?
While we can offer base-level pricing based on the number of computers in an organization- and how they’re used, an onsite survey is usually required for specific pricing. The reason behind this- we need to ensure that your network is in a solid operational state, and we also want to make sure the current configuration is something that falls within the framework of our support capability.
Contact us for more detailed pricing – or submit your information or RFP with us. The Philadelphia Tech Dream Team will respond in a timely fashion.
Managed IT Services are Proactive Technical Services designed to release a Client Organization from the responsibility of maintaining their IT Infrastructure internally. Managed IT services can take a variety of forms, but the underlying goal is the same- to relieve organizations of the need for technical business functions, and remove the need for technology-related in-house teams.
Most Providers offering Managed Services will effectively Manage a variety of different services for the organizations they support. Some of these services may include Managed-Email-Services, Managed-VOIP-Services or Phone Systems, Managed Cybersecurity Services, and Managed Cloud services to name a few.
Managed Services Providers (MSP) Are Service Companies who Provide Managed IT Services to their clients. A managed service provider (MSP) delivers services, such as network, application, infrastructure and security, via ongoing and regular support and active administration on customers’ premises, in their MSP’s data center (hosting), or in a third-party data center. Some of these offerings may include things like help desk services, disaster recovery, managed security services or various cybersecurity services as well as a wide range of cloud computing or cloud-based services.
MSPs may deliver their own native services in conjunction with other providers’ services (for example, a security MSP providing sys admin on top of a third-party cloud IaaS). Pure-play MSPs focus on one vendor or technology, usually their own core offerings. Many MSPs include services from other types of providers. The term MSP traditionally was applied to infrastructure or device-centric types of services but has expanded to include any continuous, regular management, maintenance and support.
Remote Support is any type of computer related support service where an agent connects to a computer remotely, or helps the user from an external location.
Remote support is usually the first step of diagnosing a computer related problem or technical malfunction. In cases where connectivity can’t be established, a remote support agent will instruct the user to perform several tasks to get a better understanding of exactly what the problem might be.
Remote support findings can reveal a more detail-oriented technical assessment which can be used to identify and pinpoint the next steps of the diagnostic process. Sometimes this can be followed up with onsite service, but not in all cases.

Philadelphia Tech Support typically supports client businesses generating 2 million dollars per year or more in revenue, with respectable profit margins. While we don’t provide specific minimums for new clients, we feel that our services wouldn’t provide an advantage for small businesses, and they may not have a value for our services.

We help them, and they help us!
We don’t always require a monthly service plan for all of our services, however- most businesses do need ongoing support service related to IT. Many small business owners are not aware of the need for technology maintenance and proactive services. Sometimes it’s because businesses are operating on very thin margins.
