So what is ITIL?
ITIL is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world, with ITIL best practices providing a framework for businesses to manage their IT services more effectively.

How can ITIL improve my company's business performance?
At Managed 24/7 we aim to assist you to manage risk and keep the infrastructure and networks running, not only saving you money, but also allowing your team to do their jobs more effectively.
Ensuring correct usage of the ITIL lifecycle can remove time from technical teams to allow them to focus more on resolution and solution. We understand how frustrating it is when incidents happen more than once and become an ongoing problem, our ITIL team work on Problem Management to ensure issues are detected, logged, categorised, prioritised and work towards finding a resolution for the problem.
For example, brokerage firm Pershing reduced its incident response time by 50 percent in the first year after restructuring its service desk according to ITIL guidelines, allowing users with problems to get back to work much more quickly.
Why is it important to have a dedicated ITIL team?
At Managed 24/7 we have a dedicated and highly trained ITIL team on hand to help guide you on best practice. ITIL provides a systematic and professional approach to the management of IT service provision, and offers the following benefits:
- reduced IT costs
- improved IT services through the use of proven best practice processes
- improved customer satisfaction through a more professional approach to service delivery
- standards and guidance
- improved productivity
- improved use of skills and experience
- improved delivery of third-party services through the specification of ITIL or BS15000 as the standard for service delivery in services procurements
According to Axelos, ITIL can also help businesses improve services by:
- helping businesses manage risk, disruption and failure
- strengthening customer relations by “delivering efficient services that meet their needs”
- establishing cost-effective practices
- building a stable environment that still allows for growth, scale and change.
We work with your business using the ITIL framework to deliver best practice to ensure your business is managing your IT services more effectively.
