Managed IT Services Delivers Substantial Value

Managed IT Services Delivers Substantial Value

One of the best reasons to implement managed IT services is the value it presents for your business compared to the alternatives. Businesses may have once depended on unreliable and expensive services to keep their IT up and running, but nowadays, it’s more efficient and, in most cases, more affordable than ever before. We’ll explain how managed service providers can create value opportunities for your business.

What Are the Alternatives?
Depending on a business’ current needs, they will generally be taking advantage of two types of IT management. The first relies on a business being self-sustaining enough to be able to hire a full in-house IT department. There can be no denying how important technology maintenance and management is for businesses, but it is difficult to handle if your organization doesn’t have fully trained IT professionals at the ready--and these skills don’t come cheap. This prompts many organizations to simply get by without IT, or at the very most, have their current employees (who are unlikely to have proper IT skills) handle the maintenance.

Hoping to find some other alternative to hiring internal IT help, businesses then turn to break-fix IT to get the help needed, but only when it’s actually needed. Break-fix IT might seem cost-effective at first glance, but it’s far from it. Since break-fix IT doesn’t aim to solve the root of problems, it’s frowned upon compared to managed IT, which takes a more preventative approach to technology maintenance.

Trust us when we say that managed IT services is the better options.

The Benefits of Managed IT
If you’re looking to take advantage of technology solutions without hiring an in-house IT department (either because you can’t afford it, or you can’t find qualified technicians), managed IT is the right choice for your business. There are many ways that managed IT can provide value for your organization. Here are just a few of them:

  • Less downtime: Downtime can be classified as any time your infrastructure is not working as intended. Naturally, you want to mitigate it as much as possible to preserve operational efficiency. Since managed IT takes a proactive approach to IT management, you’ll suffer from fewer problems and, therefore, less downtime overall.
  • Fewer costs: If you’re preventing problems from hitting a boiling point, your hardware and software solutions should last longer. This leads to cut costs over time. Furthermore, since you’re only paying a monthly fee based on your service level agreement, you can say goodbye to high, up-front, unpredictable repair costs in favor of a more standardized payment structure.
  • More flexibility: Many managed IT providers also include a remote service component, meaning that the technicians don’t even have to be on-site in order for them to do their jobs. This cuts travel costs out of the equation, but more than anything else, it means that when you need help, they can accommodate your organization almost immediately.
  • More time: Managing technology can be time-consuming, and if you don’t have someone dedicated to handling it, you could be sacrificing countless hours of your work week needlessly. When you have trusted technicians on the job, implementations can go right the first time, and you don’t have to waste more time than necessary just to make sure projects are completed in a timely manner. Instead, you can devote any time saved to other parts of running your business--perhaps more lucrative parts.
