IT Documentation

IT Documentation Software

IT documentation software lets you store client information in a secure, searchable way, and standardize internal information to build a library of best practices. A web-based IT documentation app gives you real-time access to the information anytime you need it.

Why It Matters to Managed Services Providers

Over time, your technicians develop extensive knowledge about your clients. Unfortunately, much of that information is never documented and if you or another technician needs to step in, you can waste a lot of time searching for the information you need or trying to track down the technician who has the answers. Furthermore, if technicians leave your employment, a lot of valuable information may go with them.

IT documentation software can save your MSP hundreds of hours each year by securely storing and standardizing client documentation and allowing you to retrieve it quickly and easily when you need it. These solutions allow you to store information on devices and applications, passwords, domains, SSL certificates and more. You also gain complete transparency into who is updating information and how your technicians are solving problems for your clients.

The Opportunity for MSPs

You can operate more efficiently and profitably by deploying IT documentation software. It allows you to build a searchable library of best practices that your team can use to expedite work across all clients and improve the quality of service your MSP provides. It also integrates with professional services automation (PSA), remote monitoring and management (RMM), and other business tools, to keep all records accurate and up to date. In addition, you can print documentation for your clients to use during quarterly reviews or to simply off-boarding.

IT documentation software via the Software as a Service (SaaS) model lets you have all the benefits of this solution for a low monthly cost instead of an upfront investment in a software license and gives you the ability to log in from mobile devices to track down information when on-site.
