The benefits are nearly endless when it comes to partnering with a Managed Service Provider—however, many businesses have yet to tap into these benefits. In our conversations with local business owners, we find that often, it’s simply that business owners are uninformed about what is really out there, or have been swindled by a poorly run provider in the past and hesitate to trust anyone else. Allied IT Partners has compiled a list of benefits that come with working with a local managed service provider to help you understand the perks that come with it:
- Save Money: Let’s face it—as a business owner, you desire to be as profitable as possible. Often, IT is seen as a burden or a cost to your business, and often, it’s expensive. Partnering with a managed service provider can eliminate the need for onsite equipment, and will provide a predictable monthly cost that is easy to budget for and is, on average, 60% cheaper than not working with an MSP.
- Make Money: Not only can partnering with an MSP save you money because you are not focused on the break and fix method, but it can also help you make more money as a company. The IT staff you currently have, if any, can shift their focus from fixing issues to helping strategically plan for the future and IT within the company. They can concentrate on projects that will take the business further and help you generate more income as a result. If you don’t currently have IT staff to push strategic initiatives forward, consider our CIO-as-a-service option from TheCIO.co
- Increase Operational Efficiency: If your current IT needs are not being met in a timely or effective manner, your business is not running as efficiently as possible. Often, businesses have to wait 24-48 hours for their IT staff or current IT provider to respond to service calls or tickets. By working with a managed service provider with outsource help desk, you can cut that response time down to an average of 60 seconds! In addition to that, managed service providers can proactively monitor and manage your environment, ensuring that all systems remain operational during business hours, and fixing problems before they become production impacting.
- Increase Security and Reliability: If you rely on your current IT team to implement security measures and monitor your systems, you could be opening yourself up to cyber attackers. Let’s face it—most IT teams aren’t monitoring your systems 24/7 for security threats, nor do they have the manpower to. By trusting a managed service provider, your systems are continually monitored by our teams to ensure that all systems are protected and safe from these cyber criminals, protecting critical company and customer data. If you value your data, consider protecting it with managed services.
Partnering with a managed service provider comes with many benefits. If you really want to grow your company and free up more time to do so, then managed services is the right direction for you.
