100% Born and Built Managed Services

One-of-a-kind Seattle-based MSP

The Total Care recipe started 20 years ago when time and materials agreements began to cause conflict. Effective clean networks need to get to the root of the problem and not be temporarily patched for a quick fix. This required a different kind of thinking thus managed services was born. Nobody likes to pay for a service pack to be downloaded. 

The original monthly program was called Monthly Proactive Support Agreement (MPSA) and yes, we still have one customer on this legacy plan. The idea was to allocate specific resources to a specific client on a set schedule. Things changed when technology began to run 24/7 - networks required immediate fixes, not scheduled fixes, thus Total Care was born. Today's automation and alerting allows us to work proactively and protect our clients' data and up time, bringing a whole new meaning to IT support. 

A traditional network administrator can only work eight hours a day, SWAT Systems runs 24/7/365 using a team approach. Our help desk is staffed in teams so that each company has multiple network administrators, providing redundancy and accountability to getting things fixed and keeping things moving. We have over four different types of teams at SWAT Systems ready to spring into action depending on what needs to be done. Whether it's reactive support, on-site support, cloud migration, or high level design and project work, our team of 32 experts are standing by.
