COMPARING MANAGED IT SERVICES AND BREAK-FIX PLANS
There are two basic types of service plans that most IT companies offer. The first is “Time and Materials” (known throughout the IT industry as “Break-Fix”). The second — and often better value — is "Managed IT Services."
Under this pricing model, you pay an agreed-upon hourly rate for a technician to fix your computer problem whenever something breaks. To keep costs down, you can often negotiate a discount on the standard hourly rate when you purchase a block of hours in advance.
