Frequently Asked Questions: PRIME I.T. for Business

What is PRIME I.T.?
Silverleaf PRIME I.T. for Business is a unique managed IT service provider (MSP) solution designed for small businesses with fewer than 100 users.

You can think of us as your company’s local “outsourced IT department”. Based in Los Angeles, we provide fast & reliable tech support, professional hardware & software management, and advanced security & protection for your business for a low monthly premium.

Does my business really need ongoing managed IT services?
Every business is unique, so your answer will depend on many factors such as business size, technical complexity, internal expertise, regulatory compliance, and system up-time requirements.

We find that in general, most businesses with ten (10) users or more tend to have reached a level of size and complexity (as well as a dependence on IT up-time) to justify some investment in a professional IT management service.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
New clients may start without a contract for a 30-day “Intro” period. During this important first step, we get to know your company and you get to know how we operate – without the need to sign a long-term contract right away.

I just want a one-time fix. Do you offer 'break/fix' hourly billing, or as-needed services?
No. While a ‘break/fix’ service may be acceptable for some very small businesses, we believe that the best way to ensure that your company’s IT systems run smoothly is through proactive, ongoing management and care of your critical IT systems – and with fast & effective support for your users.

We also believe that our billing model and pricing practices should be closely aligned with our goal of making sure your business enjoys as close to 100% up-time as possible.

In other words, we don’t make money when your tech breaks – that’s because our goal is to prevent tech breaks from happening in the first place!

What happens during the 30-day Intro period?
During the 30-day Intro period, we gather as much information as we can on your IT environment. We do a comprehensive network assessment, meet with your users to understand your workflow, and gather technical specifications to build our map of your IT systems.

Then, we provide a detailed report on your current IT status, make recommendations for possible changes or hardware/software upgrade projects, and provide an updated quote for ongoing monthly service.

At the 30-day point, if you think PRIME I.T. is the right fit for your business, a 12-month agreement is required.

How does your pricing work?
Our pricing is determined by the number of users and the number of computers in your business, and combined into a monthly premium.

What does the monthly premium include?
The monthly premium includes unlimited support for your company’s end users via phone, email, or chat, plus 24/7 access to our Help Center.

Regular maintenance and management for your existing hardware and software systems is also included, as well as quarterly business reviews, strategic project consulting, and full reporting capability.

Most importantly, we act as your company’s “delegated IT admin”, which keeps you in control and enhances your company’s overall security.

What's not included in the monthly premium?
New software and/or hardware purchases and installations (which we refer to as Project Implementations) are not included in the monthly premium, and are instead billed separately as one-time project fees.
Will the monthly premium ever go up (or down)?
In general, your monthly premium will go up whenever you add users and/or computers to your business.

If you subtract users and/or computers, your monthly premium will go down.

Do you offer discounts on the monthly premium?
Yes! All new clients are eligible for savings of up to 50% off the monthly premium with our PRIME I.T. Rewards program.
What are the minimum technical requirements for PRIME I.T.?
Generally speaking, if your IT environment consists of hardware and software that is less than 5 years old, then you most likely meet or exceed our minimum technical requirements.

However, if we find that there are critical hardware/software systems on your network that haven’t been upgraded in 5, 10, or even 15 years, then our service may be limited for those systems until they are upgraded or replaced.

How do we get started?
New clients may get started by getting a quote or contacting us.
