On the Fence about Managed IT Services?

As your company continues to grow, you might be wondering how to make better use out of your existing resources. Your expanding infrastructure demands updates in IT equipment, manpower, networks, and access. But should you expand your IT department to accommodate all of this growth or focus on the products and services your company provides? If IT isn’t your industry, it might be time to consider partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) and utilizing managed IT services to relieve some of the burdens of expansion.

Outsourcing IT: What’s in It for Me?
When you partner with an MSP, you will be outsourcing IT personnel. However, managed IT services will save you time as technology updates will be handled by your service provider. Your business also won’t waste money on failed hardware or software, and you will have access to the cutting-edge devices, processes, and services that will help you look to the future. Your monthly fees will help you control the outflow of funds that come from managing your IT in-house.

IT is a Utility—Not Your Problem
Your business relies on IT. The internet and your network must be always accessible and functioning, just like electricity. When you hire an MSP to manage your IT needs, you can begin to treat these necessary tools like a utility. It will no longer be your job to ensure access to your digital world; it’s theirs. Your staff can then focus on meeting your clients’ needs, just like they should.

Managed IT Services Provide Solutions
Perhaps the best thing about partnering with an MSP is that you have a team of experts available to you at any time to troubleshoot those problems or challenges that arise in your IT world. Their pool of talent will have knowledge, experience, and access to the most up-to-date solutions, which can be tailored to suit your business’s demands. Whether you require secure cloud storage, an update to your cybersecurity, or to simply replace a crucial hard drive and backup your data, trained and certified professional help is just a phone call away. Imagine the reassurance of knowing your business’s IT needs are in the hands of a team of trusted professionals?

Why Off-Site Backup of Your Data Is Important

As business files are digitized and today’s work environment runs on data, off-site backup is essential. Duplication of your information and the ease with which it is accessible are two key factors in any solid data protection plan. An off-site backup solution provides the necessary redundancy needed in the event that your primary, on-site data storage system fails or is compromised. This physical location (or cloud storage) is separate and apart from your firm’s headquarters and the location where your IT solutions are stored. Read more
