In today’s ultra-competitive business marketplace, the value of having access to a comprehensive team of IT experts can’t be overstated. Many small and mid-sized businesses simply don’t have the budget to hire a comprehensive, well-rounded team of experts in-house full time—so they hire one or two IT professionals in hopes that a few dedicated, full-time employees will fit their needs.
What many small and mid-sized businesses don’t realize is that when you contract with a managed IT services provider, one of the many benefits you can expect is the ability to leverage the expert support provided by your managed IT services team to consult with and empower your in-house IT staff.
1. Strategic In-House IT Consultants
Managed IT services provide a budget-balancing approach to managing your business’ IT infrastructure and controlling skyrocketing IT costs. When you outsource your IT solutions and (that can also include managed security services), you allow your in-house IT team to focus on more strategic business-centric matters, like process improvements and core technology.
If you’re a start-up or a small to medium-sized business that simply can’t afford to hire IT staff, a managed IT services provider can take the place of a full-time IT team and act as an on-site or virtual IT department.
2. Technology That Scales With Your Business
Presumably, you’re in business to make money, be successful, and grow your organization. When you have a team of managed IT services experts behind you, you can utilize the most innovative technology available without having to foot the bill for extensive licensing fees and infrastructure upgrades.

With the constantly evolving adaptability of hackers and other cyber criminals, it’s tough enough to stay abreast of the latest security threats in order to effectively mitigate them—let alone protect your business continuity with a plan in the event that an incident does occur. With a managed security services team behind you, your business will benefit from a solid line of defense that includes the most up-to-date security experts in the field, along with a comprehensive business continuity and disaster plan that will keep your business up-and-running in the event that the unthinkable does occur.
