How can you limit IT risks? Find a better IT provider. One to support all your IT needs and be held accountable for service. In other words, find a qualified managed service provider (MSP).
For businesses who see the value of IT and want to invest in it, managed service providers are the right choice. How can you tell a qualified MSP from the competition? They do more than a few things better.
What are you risking with bad IT? We broke it down here.
IT is a crowded industry. Companies come and go constantly. To get on the field and actually play for years is a rarity.
If a company survives, it means they have something other IT support companies don't. They know what they're doing and they do it better than anyone else.
Qualified managed service providers take on more IT risk than you do. This means it's in their best interest to do a good job.
Plus since you're under an SLA, anything under contract has to be fixed by them (costing more time and money on their part) while you're sitting peachy.
Managed service providers have a monetary benefit to do it right the first time.
While other IT providers tend to fix the immediate problem, qualified MSPs go deeper. They know that surface-level fixes don't last. Going to the source of the problem is the best way to resolve problems for good.
With a qualified managed service provider, your life becomes easier. They follow a service-level agreement meaning everything under contact is agreed upon before work starts.
This process allows businesses predictable IT spend (lending to manageable budgeting). It also gives businesses a clear path to scale up and see how their IT will evolve with the company.
Qualified MSPs will have specialized, dedicated teams to service your business. These teams will have field experts ranging from technical account managers, onsite engineers, system administrators and more. Each one with particular skills to serve you.
Along with an established vendor network, these types of IT providers have the most important resource available: time. Time to understand your needs. Time to get things done right.
And if you're still on the fence about partnering, these managed IT companies will have a list of clients (in your industry) you can call for reference.
