Selecting the right IT Partner for your organization is critical to your success. If you are seeking a strategic partner for your SME, we may be the one. The term Managed Service Provider doesn’t cut it for ATS. We prefer Managed Service Partner— that’s what we think of when we call ourselves an MSP. Creating that partnership-level bond with clients requires trust, the first thing we build before any ATS solution is in place. Building that trust means knowing the people depending on our expertise, knowing who we are working for. Only then can we accurately determine your organization’s needs and design, develop and deploy a solution — one that works from the start, and is able to adapt to the future.
Feedback we often hear from our clients:
We can start tomorrow if the situation requires it. However, a better solution is to have a transition period of 2 to 4 weeks. We lead and manage the entire process to ensure a smooth transition from your current solution to us. We will need some input from you, but you will be able to “focus on your day job” and won’t have to worry about driving the transition.
No problem. We offer Co-managed IT and have many clients with this structure. We find this can lead to a lower overall IT spend with greater efficiency, effectiveness and expertise for our Co-managed clients.
We require a contract for several reasons. Primarily because it lays out expectations of us for our clients, helps to avoid misunderstandings and leads to win-win, long term partnerships. Frankly, we would recommend against entering this kind of partnership without one (or a month-to-month contract). Our typical terms are 1 year or 3 years. Regardless of a contract, we prove our value to our clients everyday.
For system wide issues impacting multiple users, our response is immediate. Our NOC systems typically alert us before our clients even know there is an issue. For Help Desk issues we have a 2-hour SLA. However, our typical response is immediate. You call, we answer – you email, we respond – RAPIDLY. We follow up and take issue ownership. Our clients never have to ask, “what is the status of this?”

No, in fact small & medium businesses are attractive targets because they have information cybercriminals want and typically lack the Cybersecurity infrastructure / solutions / management necessary for robust protection. A 2019 Accenture study found that hackers targeted small businesses 43% of the time. It also found that a paltry 14% of those firms were prepared. Aligned Technology Solutions focuses on clients with Compliance and Cybersecurity requirements.
