network monitoring

Could implementing monitoring increase uptime for your clients in 2017?

Website downtime can be devastating for business, especially those operating in the e-commerce sector, or other services industries. As an IT provider, it is essential that you deliver a solution that gives your clients a highly available infrastructure. Building a reliable, efficient IT infrastructure can reduce downtime and increase consumer confidence, but can you increase uptime for your clients by implementing ongoing system monitoring?

Monitoring Infrastructure

Server and network monitoring allows you to stay one step ahead of any problems by automatically alerting you the instant an issue arises. This gives you the opportunity to make necessary amendments to your clients’ systems so that they in turn, can offer their customers a reliable experience, and continued service delivery.

Implementing a system for regularly monitoring your customers’ infrastructure also enables you to adapt their systems to optimise their customer’s experience, whilst increasing the efficiency of operations. Monitoring allows you to respond much faster to issues and fix problems quickly rather than waiting to be informed of potential glitches or hitches. In some cases you may be able to fix issues before your clients are even aware that there is a problem.

Consumer Confidence

Ensuring uptime is a great means to deliver a more convenient, reliable experience your clients’ customers. This increases consumer confidence and escalates the chances of return business for them, so it is clear that a reliable IT infrastructure is central to running any successful business. Server and network monitoring enables you to deliver a more consistent service for your clients and gain a good reputation for your business as you are able to deliver consistent customer satisfaction by providing the best service possible.

Gaining a good reputation amongst customers for consistent smooth, efficient service can be a powerful marketing opportunity as content clients or consumers spread awareness of your business through word of mouth recommendations.

Technical Benefits and Costs

Monitoring your clients’ server grants you access to a range of technical elements, allowing you the ability to view which elements of their infrastructure could potentially slow down performance or cause issues on different platforms. This is a helpful tool to make improvements over time, an cater for future requirements.

Implementing monitoring may have an initial cost, but this can save money as performance and services are not affected by downtime, which could cause loss of earnings. That is also before you consider the vast range of benefits that server and network monitoring can produce to help your clients to increase business.

In summary, implementing a monitoring system can empower you to respond quickly to issues in order to ensure uptime and deliver consistent customer satisfaction. Consequentially, increasing the chance of return business and increased brand recognition and loyalty for you, whilst your clients enjoy high levels of system uptime and customer satisfaction.
