Every business, no matter the size or industry, needs IT services to stay competitive. The insurance industry is no exception. This post will explore different IT services that iTology offers and how they can benefit an insurance company. We’ll also go over some of our plans for small businesses and large enterprise customers who are looking for managed IT solutions tailored to their specific needs.

What Technology Needs Can We Help You With?

Managed IT Services

IT services are one of the most integral parts of any company. With managed IT services, iTology manages all your network infrastructure and servers to ensure it continually operates at peak performance. This allows companies to focus on core competencies while reducing costs, since they don’t have to spend time or money managing internal systems staff. Ways managed IT services can help your insurance company:

  • Reduce the risk of business disruption because of cyber attacks
  • Improve customer service levels through fast and reliable Internet connections
  • Save on IT costs by consolidating multiple systems into one managed environment
Cloud Services

As more and more companies turn to the cloud for their IT needs, iTology can help. We offer a variety of managed services and assist clients in creating custom service packages that meet specific needs such as disaster recovery and data backup. This allows insurance agencies to focus on what they do best while reducing costs by outsourcing infrastructure management. Ways cloud services can help your insurance company:

  • Improved productivity with access to all applications from any device
  • Reduce the need for a large physical footprint by utilizing virtual servers on demand
  • Provides an unlimited amount of data storage without requiring additional hardware

In today’s cyber-savvy world, insurance agencies must have the right cybersecurity plan in place. Suppose your business does not already have a strategy for defending against threats such as ransomware and malware attacks. In that case, iTology can help you develop an actionable IT security program customized to your agency’s unique needs. Ways cybersecurity can help your insurance company:

  • Decrease the risk of data breaches and resulting reputational damage
  • Protect your company’s valuable assets such as intellectual property, customer information, financial data, and trade secrets
  • Reduced operational costs associated with security monitoring and compliance by leveraging a single vendor for all services
Business Continuity Planning

Besides network services and cyber-defense strategies, business continuity planning is also an important component. Should a catastrophe strike, iTology can help insurance agencies create a plan for how to resume operations in either the event of inevitable data loss or just as a precautionary measure. Ways business continuity planning can help your insurance company:

  • Protect data and business processes with offsite backups
  • Restore data and applications in the event of a disaster
  • Provide your team with peace of mind as they work on their business recovery plan
  • Create an emergency contact list to ensure that everyone is informed
VoIP and Phone Services

Besides network management, managed IT solutions include VoIP and phone service from iTology’s communications division. What is VoIP? VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) allows you to make telephone calls using an internet connection instead of traditional phone lines or copper cables. It offers significant cost savings on international calling because it uses less bandwidth than other technologies. You also get increased connectivity when there are problems with traditional phone lines, such as power outages or natural disasters like hurricanes that might disrupt service. With VoIP, businesses never have to worry about dropped connections again. Ways VoIP and phone services can help your insurance company:

  • Significant cost savings on international calling
  • Increased connectivity when there are problems with traditional phone lines
  • Fewer to no dropped connections
Co-Managed IT Services

If you’re looking for a partner to help with network management and business continuity planning, iTology has the solution. This service is perfect if your company already has an in-house team for IT, but lacks expertise in certain areas. When you partner with iTology, we provide your team with the IT skills and knowledge they need to be effective. Ways co-managed IT services can help your insurance company:

  • Improve operational efficiency by centralizing responsibility
  • Reduce stress and save time for business owners responsible for their own company’s tech needs
  • Provide your team with training
