Benefits of Managed IT Services

As a business owner, it is important for you to make the right investments to ensure the success of your business. One of the best investments you can do is to seek the assistance of a company that offers managed IT services. If you’re not familiar with Managed IT Services, also known as Managed Service Providers (MSP), let’s take a quick look at all the benefits they provide.

• Improve business efficiency
If you can improve the overall efficiency of your company, you can easily take your business to the next level. This is one of the main reasons to hire a company that offers managed IT services. After you partner with a MSP, you’ll be able to take IT management off your plate and focus more on your core business offerings. You’ll eliminate the need to spend your time training IT employees and monitoring IT issues. Additionally, the MSP would be responsible for ensuring that your business is adhering to the latest industry standards and best practices. By using the latest software and technology you’ll ensure the programs your employees are using are working at maximum efficiency to keep your business moving.

• Faster resolutions
When your systems are down, you can’t sit around and wait for someone to solve your IT problems. An MSP will always respond quickly in order to ensure your company’s productivity isn’t affected. Picture this scenario: your office email goes down and all your employees need to access their email via Webmail. Suddenly all your employees are calling your IT manager to help them log into webmail and access their login credentials. With an in-house IT manager, they’d have to tend to each employee one-by-one. At that rate, it could take hours before everyone is able to access their emails again. But with a MSP, your staff would have access to a full team when they need it most. Faster resolutions mean less downtime, which means your staff will be back to work in no time.

• Protect your business from security threats
IT security is something that should be a priority for any business. If your data is vulnerable, it could result in big problems down the road. A MSP can be a lifeline for companies who are already stretched in terms of IT capabilities. Companies who have outsourced IT support rely on MSPs to protect against advanced attacks at levels that are not easily replicated in-house. Additionally, cybersecurity skills take years to gain which is why most IT managers don’t have the experience needed to protect companies from cyber threats.

• Cloud-based services
Most businesses house their data in the cloud because of the accessibility and enhanced protection. A cloud-based infrastructure allows you and your employees to share, edit, and publish documents in a unified system, improve communication, and enhance your day-to-day business processes. Your MSP can help you with taking the core business operations to the cloud. A cloud-based infrastructure scales with your business, can be easily customized for your specific business needs, and is cost-effective.  Better yet, using a cloud-based infrastructure means that even if disaster strikes, you can still access critical files from anywhere. A MSP can help you make the transition to the cloud easily and seamlessly.

• Receive expert knowledge at all times
When you hire a MSP, you’ll receive the combined knowledge of several IT experts. Some members may have experience in small business systems while others will have experience supporting a specific industry and its related applications. By hiring a MSP you’ll be able to tap into the experience of all its members. Regardless of your business and industry, with a MSP it’s likely you’ll find a specialist that can provide the help and support you need to tackle any IT issue. The combined expertise of several members with varied education and training is an invaluable asset to any company and one that is rarely found in an in-house team.
