It’s no secret your IT is important, but do you know how to keep it secure and running efficiently? With technology changing at warp speed, it’s tougher than ever to keep in-house IT resources trained—so now what? You can’t forfeit quality and you can’t bust your budget. But, there is one powerful way to keep your IT running smoothly without breaking the bank.
What is an MSP, and how can it help me?
The best way to get the highest level of IT support and services without overstepping your budget is to partner with a managed service provider (MSP). An MSP manages and assumes responsibiilty for a particular set of services—either by completely managing them or providing them on a per-needed basis. These services can include data and backup recovery, security, server and network, cloud computing, Wi-Fi and more.
But I already have an IT team?
Think of it as an extension of your existing IT resources. A study by CompTIA found that more than 50 percent of the companies surveyed reported they use managed IT services so they can free up their own internal staff to work on revenue-generating projects. Co-managing or entirely outsourcing managed services frees up your existing tech team’s time and is more affordable than hiring additional full-time employees.
So what’s next?
As your business grows and goals shift, consider how you can integrate ever-changing IT practices. Then search for a partner that can not only meet, but exceed your expectations.
