Is your business using MSPs (Managed IT service providers) to handle your IT? Maybe you are, or you might be considering bringing one on board for 2023.
If so, it’s essential to make sure you’re fully aware of all the benefits they can provide so you can get the most bang for your buck out of them.
As well as helping your internal staff avoid repetitive daily IT tasks that can keep businesses bogged down, MSPs can also provide a range of services that many people are unaware of.
In this blog, we’ve outlined a few key services that Managed IT service providers can provide for businesses that you may not already know about. Have a read below.
Get the most out of your Microsoft 365 license
Countless businesses use a whole host of Microsoft 365 products to help run their company every day. But not all businesses are fully aware of all of the features their license provides, and how to use them most efficiently.
An MSP can help you work out how you can get the full range of benefits from your license, and configure it in whatever way works best for your business.
Cut unnecessary software expenses
Another way an MSP can configure free features within your Microsoft 365 so it works best for you includes activating the full Defender Antivirus that comes as part of the license.
Many businesses are spending unnecessarily on additional security licenses, as they are simply unaware that they’ve already got one built in to Microsoft 365! An MSP can help you save money that you might’ve otherwise spent on additional security licenses that aren’t actually needed.
Activate lesser-known features
An MSP can also help you activate useful Microsoft 365 features like Intune to manage your devices more easily.
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based endpoint management solution. It manages user access and simplifies app and device management across your many devices, including mobile devices, desktop computers, and virtual endpoints.
Make sure you don’t spend unnecessarily on additional licenses – at Axon we help activate the features built into Microsoft 365, so you get more bang for your buck!
So there we have it, just a few ways an MSP can benefit businesses that you may not have already been aware of.
