Outsourcing your company’s technology needs by choosing a Managed IT Services solution can provide benefits that go beyond simply having IT support when you need it. Choosing the right Managed IT Services provider, one who understands your industry, your business and its goals and needs, can propel you toward your business’ goals in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
Access to a Complete IT Department
Having access to an outsourced IT department is often the first benefit that comes to mind when businesses evaluate Managed IT Services. When you choose an outsourced solution, you get more than just day-to-day IT support. You’ll have a Technical Account Manager and a virtual CIO who will work with you to approach your IT needs strategically.
In effect, your business and its employees have access to a complete IT department staffed by skilled, certified professionals with years of practical experience – without having to recruit, hire and add those individuals to your company’s payroll and benefits systems.
Strategic, Proactive Planning and Support
For a business without the resources to staff an internal IT department, it can be challenging to think strategically about IT needs. Organizations that choose Managed IT Services get support and strategic guidance from seasoned IT professionals who can help identify future needs in the coming 1-2 years.
In addition, choosing Managed IT Services means your business will have proactive support rather than taking a reactive approach to technology risks. Instead of constantly addressing and resolving issues, your Managed IT Services provider will work to identify potential issues before they arise. This, in turn, helps your business run more smoothly and limits downtime and disruptions.
This strategic and proactive approach can help ensure your business infrastructure and software are upgraded and updated regularly to minimize information security risks and the expense and downtime that can come with unwanted systems intrusions, viruses and crashes.
Peace of Mind
Working with a Managed IT Services provider can also give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing it’s OK that you’re not an expert in all things technology-related. When you choose Managed IT Services, you don’t need to worry about whether your infrastructure and systems are working the way they’re supposed to and whether your data (and that of your customers and employees) is protected. Your Managed IT Services provider takes on that worry, so you can focus on running your business.
Your service provider is also incentivized to make sure things continue to run smoothly for your company, minimizing problems and watching key performance indicators directly linked to the efficiency of your IT function.
