Considering moving your IT management out-of-house is a big step for any company. With the knowledge gap of technology knowledge ever-widening, it can be difficult for SMBs to stay on top of this critical aspect of business.
Whether your current IT team is thinking of tackling some more strategic projects, or if you just need some technology pros to step in while you focus on scaling up, partnering with a managed Service provider (MSP) is a great way to make your business goals more achievable.
Here are our top three reasons to work with an MSP:
1. Business continuity planning
This is a fancy way of saying your business should be prepared for everything: a natural disaster, security breach, or even simple human error. MSPs can help through making sure your data is properly backed up and your network is secure. Retroactively trying to deal with the fallout from a disaster can leave businesses scrambling to get back on their feet, losing valuable time in a technological blackout. Having a plan and professional consultation on one tailored to your business is invaluable.
2. Reduce technology-induced chaos
MSPs help businesses across many industries and get to know the top technology concerns for their clients. Check out how IT helps the legal industry and manufacturing sector. MSP team members use their wide range of experience across multiple clients to adapt solutions to fit your business model and needs. MSPs aim to reduce noise associated with downtime. This allows businesses to function as effectively as possible, doing what matters most and focusing on their core competencies. Whether it is taking on all IT end-to-end, or acting as an extension to an existing IT department, business owners are given the peace of mind that their technology is handled.
3. Comprehensive problem-solving
The business model of an MSP is to provide your business with certified professionals that understand technology so completely that they are prepared for everything, and ready to face new threats that come with the tech territory. Tackling specific problems and identifying the root cause comes with the territory of a varied client portfolio, and it arms your MSP with knowledge of how to solve a problem at the source. The cost of network downtime, security breaches, fixing and replacing hardware adds up quickly — and can hurt the good faith of your clients. Having a team of technology professionals who understand your business is a service, and a good one is usually worth the price tag.
