What are the Benefits of Managed IT Services?

It can get expensive to maintain an internal IT department that can match the pace of new tech innovation. Instead of being proactive and embracing new technologies, companies are forced to be reactive and can often only fix what breaks.

Why Your Business Needs a Managed Service Provider

Businesses rely on technology more than ever and that trend is only going upward. How can any business, especially a small or growing business, keep up with new infrastructure, IT support, and maintenance demands without breaking the bank or hiring more staff? The answer: hiring a managed service provider (MSP).

A managed service provider (MSP) partners with your business to provide support and troubleshooting for all your IT needs. This article explores the benefits of outsourcing your IT and how to partner with a top IT managed service provider.

How Can Managed Service Providers Support Your Business?

Over the last decade, the MSP market has grown remarkably. A record number of small and mid-market businesses are finding great value in partnering with a top IT managed service provider. Expert analysts predict this trend to continue to rise for multiple reasons. Here are some of the key factors driving the increase, and how managed services can benefit your business.

Enhanced security measures

Cybersecurity easily tops most businesses’ priorities when it comes to IT concerns. Threats are becoming more sophisticated every day. In order to maintain regular business practices  and profitability, your cybersecurity must keep up to ensure your organization’s vital data and files are protected.

Top quality MSP’s employ a number of cybersecurity experts as well as partner with security vendors to stay vigilant against the threat of attackers. Working with an MSP means having a team of experts on your side to make sure your company has the right security services and systems in place to  ensure long-term security and success.

Predictable costs

Business owners know that the fluctuation of expenses can cause major disruptions to your annual budget and bottom line. Partnering with a managed service provider that understands your organization can work with you to stay within your budget and minimize the impact of any unexpected expenses. Your MSP can roll your regular monthly costs into an agile plan that ensures a predictable and stable bill. Considering another factor, if you compare the cost of partnering with an MSP with the expense and unpredictability of hiring, training, and maintaining a full IT Staff, working with an MSP presents a clear advantage.

Easy IT management

As your business grows and its needs change, you may require your internal staff to take on additional roles and responsibilities to keep up. This can potentially distract your team from the goals of their original positions and cause frustration for those in charge of managing the IT team. Deadlines get missed, work is overlooked, and simple mistakes can snowball into something significant.

Working with a managed service provider ensures that your internal staff can stay focused on their goals and not become overloaded with out of scope role responsibilities. To put it simply, your MSP is your IT expert and shoulders the network and security responsibilities so your employees can remain productive and innovative. Partnering with the right MSP allows your team to thrive in their own unique ways while  trusting that you have the IT support and security you need to  keep growing.

Access to new technologies

Keeping up with the new innovations and solutions in the tech industry can be a challenge. It can be overwhelming, confusing, and expensive trying to keep up on your own. One of the top functions of  a managed service provider is to stay on top of new technologies and services in the market. MPS provide expert consultation for their partners on these topics, making sure that they have the right technologies in place. Having a top MSP guarantees your business has access to the top tools and industry best practices when new technology breaks into the market. It’s also important to make sure that your IT partner knows the difference between the “right” technologies, and “more” technologies. It’s not always about adding the latest and greatest, but rather making sure that you have the right tools in place to support your business needs.
