where can i get several managed IT programs or customize a programs for our business. Managed IT tools allows for monitoring of all our systems including alerting, preventative maintenance, asset inventory, patch management and scheduled system optimization. and Fixed price options should be available to allow for easy budgeting.

    Hey Valencia,
    We use a whole bunch of services. Here's our list, let me know what you think
    Autotask: ticketing
    Kaseya: desktop/server management
    MXAlerts: Email Server Monitoring
    Quest PacketTrap: Network Monitoring
    WUG: Internet Line Monitoring
    Probably have some more but thats the main ones. Out of these the cheap and easy ones to setup are MXAlerts and WUG. Others are a little more expensive and require more time and dedication.

    Many of these capabilities are built into a Windows domain already. Some of the others can be done with as simple a tool as a project manager, or even a spreadsheet.

    We use Spiceworks and have had a reasonable level of success. It isn't the best for monitoring but it will do. It does have a ticketing system built in, and allows us to install on multiple client sites and take tickets from each site and keep track of hardware at each site.
