Managing the broad range of technologies and services your business needs to find success in today’s world is tough! Because of this, the list of organizations turning to IT professionals (like us) to manage everything from Data Centers to Network Security and Applications is growing. Recent studies have shown that by 2019, the managed services market is expected to increase by as much as $193 billion. When we chat with industry friends, some of them are still surprised by the growing popularity of managed services – we, however, are not.
Keep reading for 4 reasons we think your business needs managed services.
1. Access to professional IT staff.
Partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) is far less expensive and time-consuming than hiring and training your own IT staff. Businesses without access to IT personnel wind up having to manage complicated and frustrating technology-related tasks on their own. When you partner with an MSP, it’s like having a highly skilled and dedicated IT team always at the ready, so your employees can get back to the business of innovating.
Even if your business already has an IT staff, managed services can still provide benefits. A Managed Services Provider can supplement your internal IT staff by off-loading the day-to-day management and operations of your network, giving IT personnel time to focus on other projects.
2. Increased productivity.
Leaving the dirty work of managing IT services to an MSP (Managed Services Provider), can give your teams more time to work on important projects. Managed services can also help to drastically decrease network downtime, keeping morale high, the creative juices flowing, and revenue streams pointing in the right direction.
3. Cost savings.
Managed services, even when implemented on a small scale, can deliver significant cost savings that free up dollars for other business needs. The best part is, these savings are realized without impacting the readiness and reliability of the technology businesses use every day. We know the reasons for using a Managed Services Provider extend well beyond the benefits of cost savings, but hey, who doesn’t like to save a little money?
4. Peace of mind.
The peace of mind that comes from knowing all of your technological resources are in the hands of a dedicated team is worth more than most people realize. MSP’s keep your applications up to date, provide top-notch security, manage Data Centers, and increase business uptime. What does this mean for you? It means you can spend more time focusing on your business and less time worrying about technology.
There are a variety of reasons more businesses are opting to outsource their IT management and services. Surprisingly, not all of those reasons are based strictly on cost savings. As our world becomes more complex, businesses are thinking strategically and are looking for guidance and expertise when it comes to their technology. Despite this, only 50% of organizations are using managed services (Business Solutions Magazine), a number we think is astonishing!
