The networks and technology within all businesses is as important as ever to stay competitive in your market and to maximise your efficiency. But some, might sacrifice the quantity or quality of their network maintenance efforts to conserve limited resources.
Managed IT services are great to take the pressure off your internal IT team. Read on to find out how managed IT services could benefit your business.
What are managed IT service providers?
Managed service providers (MSP) are a way to outsource maintenance and repairs to experts. They free your team up, helping with the daily tasks which are the most time consuming and complex so you can stay focused on the things that matter most.
A top-notch MSP can offer numerous services for your business, such as:
- Network administration and cloud computing
- Data backup and centre solutions
- Network security, cyber security, and asset management
- Team collaboration
- Disaster recovery planning
- IT and end user support
The benefits of managed IT services
Investing in IT systems can be costly, especially when investing in your IT needs upfront. By using outsourced IT services, these expenses can be consolidated into a single, fixed set of costs, as they typically operate with fixed monthly rates. So, any unexpected breakdowns, maintenance or repairs won’t break the bank!
Employees can stay productive, as an IT services team is there to help a hand when they are faced with any technical difficulties. Not only that, but they handle hardware and software clients, so your team will never need to engage in complicated, technical conversations.
Expertise and experience
You’ll onboard a team that has qualifications, training, certifications, and experience specific to your industry. There won’t be a need to find and hire specific people yourselves as managed IT providers (MSPs) already have the specific skillset. You’ll also gain access to the latest technology on the market.
Cut operational costs
Running a full IT in-house team means you have significant sunk costs such as monthly salaries, benefits, insurance, and office upkeep. Not only that, but it takes time and money to train staff members to become familiar with your existing systems. MSP’s can help to save on, consulting, licensing, training, and any emergency repairs.
Cyber security support
MSPs help to put a proactive approach in place to help prevent a disruptive cyber attack. It’s often the people in your business who are the weakest link in these attacks. Your business can also be guided through cyber phishing training and cyber essentials.
It’s time to shut the door on those looming data breaches. Generate the data you need for those important business decisions. Get your team collaborating wherever they’re working.
