Managed IT services provide many benefits, especially to small, growing businesses. Constantly evolving technologies and more demanding customers make it more difficult to stay ahead of the competition. Outsourcing IT has been the solution for many successful businesses.
Control Your IT Costs
One of the primary benefits of outsourcing is converting variable costs into a fixed monthly expense that works with your budget. Only pay for the services you need. When your growing business needs more IT assistance, that’s easy to add.
Have Experts Always Available, but not on Your Payroll
Hiring qualified mid-level IT staff is costly. Usually that results in in-house staff who have so much to do that some essential tasks can’t be completed. Outsourcing lets you take advantage of the skills and experience of many experts without dealing with employee sick days, vacations and retirement plans. It can also be difficult for a non-IT HR administrator to judge whether an applicant actually has the skills and experience needed by your business.
Increased Efficiency and Productivity
The right technologies, implemented correctly, will make your organization more efficient and increase employee productivity. However, performing all the research, development and implementation in-house will be much more costly than outsourcing this work. Also, experienced IT consultants know which new technologies won’t be a good fit for your business, saving you considerable time and money on the wrong IT investments.
Do What You do Best
No one can replace you at your core business, but you and your managers have limited time to spend on anything else. Don’t spend many hours of your valuable time on complex IT problems that can be handled efficiently by IT managed services.
When the network is down, money is flying out the window. 24/7 monitoring will detect and prevent many problems before the network is affected. This is much cheaper than waiting to fix the system after it’s broken.
Security and Compliance
Do you know if your firewall is up-to-date or if PCI security standards are implemented and maintained? Do you have everything backed up to the cloud? Are all payment methods and data secure against cybercriminals? Security has never been more critical than it is today.
