How Your Business Can Benefit From Outsourced IT
Managed IT services from a Managed Service Provider (MSP) allows you to outsource your IT services to an experienced, competent third party – and dramatically boost efficiency at your company.
Not sure if working with an MSP for outsourced IT is right for you? Wondering if managed IT support can really boost efficiency at your company? Read on, and see how your business can benefit from working with an MSP.
1. Improved Operational Efficiency With Proactive IT Management
One of the best things about working with a managed services provider is that they handle day-to-day IT tasks like database maintenance, helpdesk support, network monitoring, and so much more.
You can quickly get access to a team of experienced professionals who will manage your IT systems proactively – not just fixing problems with a “break-fix,” model, but taking steps to enhance overall IT efficiency, prevent downtime and service outages, and secure your data centers.
This dramatically improves operational efficiency by minimizing downtime. The average cost of IT downtime worldwide is $5,600 per minute – so working with experienced IT administrators can help you save a lot of money.
2. Scalable IT Team To Ensure You Always Get The Level Of Service You Need
Depending on the terms of your service level agreement (SLA), you will be able to quickly add IT staff members or scale back your IT team whenever you need to do so. This provides you with more flexibility – and ensures you’re only paying for the services you need.
For example, if you’re launching a new website, you may need to request more IT staff from your MSP to help with the project. Then, when this engagement concludes, you can go back to your normal level of staffing quickly. There’s no need to worry about finding and hiring new workers, or about letting them go if they’re no longer needed.
3. Peace Of Mind With Security Testing & Data Backups
Your business operations can be severely impaired by an unexpected data breach – and if you’re affected by data loss or a hack, your business may grind to a halt until the issue is resolved. And if you don’t have proper backups, a single data breach can lead to severe long-term consequences for your business data.
That’s where an MSP can help improve efficiency. Your team of outsourced IT professionals can ensure that all of your systems are patched and updated to eliminate vulnerabilities, monitor suspicious network traffic, and back up your data to ensure that you can quickly recover from a data breach or data loss incident. You can rest assured that your mission-critical information is protected.
4. Avoid Spending Time Recruiting, Hiring & Training In-House IT Staff
Even hiring a single new IT staff member brings a lot of costs with it – from recruiting to spending time interviewing each candidate, onboarding and training them, and more. This process can be highly inefficient, particularly if you need to fill multiple openings.
With outsourced IT services from a managed services provider, your HR team does not have to spend as much time and effort finding qualified professionals for your IT team. You can quickly and easily hire a team of proven, qualified professionals to help you with your long-term IT strategy – with much less hassle.
5. Free Up Your In-House IT Staff To Work On Long-Term Strategic Initiatives
If your current IT team is overworked and has too much to handle, this can lead to a lot of operational inefficiencies. By hiring a team of outsourced expert IT administrators to handle day-to-day operations like help desk support, database administration, and network/security monitoring, you can free up your in-house IT staff members to work on more important projects and develop your long-term IT strategy.
