An IT managed services provider (MSP) can be a great addition to your in-house IT team. Managed IT service providers offer full-scale, customised, end-to-end IT services that can be used to replace or augment your existing IT team. MSPs offer a variety of benefits, which we’ll explore in this article from Technetics Consulting.
Save On The Costs Of Hiring & Training IT Staff
Having your IT support and services outsourced to an MSP will help you save a lot of money on the hiring and training of new IT staff. When hiring new staff members, you have to spend time and money recruiting and interviewing, training staff members, putting together compensation packages, paying for benefits, and more.
If you run a small-to-medium-sized business and have limited resources, it can be hard to find the money to hire new full-time IT staff members. But with a managed service provider, you can get access to the IT professionals your business needs – at a fraction of the cost.
Free Up Your In-House IT Staff Members To Work On Other Projects
Working with an MSP doesn’t mean you have to get rid of your in-house IT team. In fact, an MSP can dramatically increase the efficiency of your IT workers. They can focus less on routine, day-to-day administration, and begin working on long-term projects that will help drive your future success.
Focus On Your Core Business Rather Than IT
This is one of the best benefits of managed IT services, particularly if you do not have an IT team at your company, and are trying to manage your IT architecture and services on your own.
Working with an MSP lets you think less about your IT systems and allows you to focus on your core competencies and business goals. This allows you and other executives members to spend less time on technical issues that may be outside of your job descriptions.
Instead of getting stuck “in the weeds” working on technical issues, you can begin working toward larger business goals, while having peace of mind knowing that your managed service provider is taking care of all of your IT needs.
Get Proactive Maintenance – Move Past The Break-Fix Model
You can avoid data center outages, downtime, and other technical issues when you work with a managed services provider. Managed service providers focus on remote monitoring and proactive solutions for your IT systems.
Your contracted IT staff will always be keeping an eye on your databases and other mission-critical IT systems, and look for signs of instability, technical issues, and even unauthorised access to sensitive data. This way, you can rest assured that your systems are secure, maximise uptime, and ensure the utmost reliability of on-premises and cloud-based systems alike.
Enhance Overall Security & Data Integrity
If you want to keep your data secure at your company, IT managed services can help. MSPs are aware of all security standards that apply to your company in Australia, and can help manage sensitive information like credit card data, address information, health records, and more.
When you work with an MSP, you can get peace of mind and know that your IT infrastructure and data architecture conform to all relevant laws and regulations in Australia. And with proactive IT management and monitoring, your managed services team will ensure your systems are always updated and patched, look out for suspicious activity, and perform regular security checks and tests on your systems.
