How do you perceive Business IT? An exciting opportunity to meet your business aspirations, or an expensive burden that distracts and disserves?
However you view your business IT – favourably, or otherwise – there’s every chance that a Managed Service Provider can resolve or reinvigorate it. So whether you’re struggling with aging infrastructure or making the next technological leap, there’s many reasons to partner up with an IT expert of your own…
It’s Expensive to Manage Your Own IT
The cost of hiring your own IT experts, maintaining your technology and ensuring your devices are current and compatible can be a little overwhelming. While keeping your own team of technical professionals might help keep things manageable, it’s a costly alternative and a potential waste of resources – whose talents might be better used elsewhere.
With an MSP, you could cut the monthly cost of your IT services with a Service Level Agreement, providing only the IT coverage you need at the price most befitting your setup. You might find your IT cheaper to manage with a much more bespoke solution.
You’re Not an Expert
And that’s okay. Business owners are endlessly reliant on their company infrastructure, but that doesn’t mean it’s a staple of their everyday knowledge – not with bigger fish to fry.
A major IT failure is much harder to diagnose when you don’t know what or where your company firewall is; it doesn’t make calls to tech support much easier, either. A Managed Service Provider, with broader command of your infrastructure, won’t only be able to fix the problem, they’ll be actively seeking faults and alerting you before they happen. They might even have fixed it long before your chance to ask what on Earth an Ivy Bridge microarchitecture is.
You Want a One-Stop Solution for Your Tech
Microsoft, Apple, HP, Datto, Dell… there’s likely a few brands plastered over your business devices. In the instance that one of them gives up the ghost, you’re on the phone to one of many different tech support teams as you try to get it resolved.
A MSP’s solution to this is two-fold; not only do they provide coverage for all their installed devices, they’ll be accredited as experts by the device manufacturers. This mean’s they’ll be able to offer support on your technology that matches the best available knowledge and service. When everything from your telephony to your Data Recovery is monitored and covered by just one provider, the entirety of your technology becomes much easier to manage.
You’ll Benefit from More Uptime
With the entirety of your company tech managed by an outsourced provider, you’ll liberate a wide area of your company operations from the concerns of their devices and infrastructure. With your IT needs universally catered to, a huge chunk of your business considerations is essentially a distant memory, and you can channel that extra energy into your company aspirations.
You Can Kickstart Your Brand-New Strategy
Got a bold, new corporate plan? Maybe a vision for your company technology? An MSP can help you implement both, ensuring that they compliment each other for the best possible results. By implementing your solution from beginning to end, they’ll develop an intricate understanding of your company setup; and by making the most of their ongoing services, you’ll be better-equipped than ever to tackle business disruptions or sudden changes of plans.
It’s not just a lack of IT know-how that necessitates a Managed Service Provider. Whatever your circumstances, you may find it’s the best way to steer your company towards its aspirations.
