3 Ways Managed IT Services Can Save Your Business Money
What are your major business goals for this year? A few examples that come to mind may include increasing your efficiency and profitability—and your IT environment can play a large role in that. Yet many modern businesses struggle with IT budget constraints and staffing. If these challenges sound familiar, there is a way to overcome them with managed IT services. Let’s dive into three ways managed services can save your business precious time and money.
1. Proactive Service and Technology
If your staff is over-burdened dealing with technology problems, it’s taking time and attention away from bettering and growing your business. However, managed services are built upon proactivity, meaning regular updates, security patches, and performance checks are ongoing. Automation has proven to cut costs and increase productivity in many areas including IT. MSP’s can easily cut costs, increase security and increase productivity by automating many of the daily tasks and duties that were once reliant upon the staff. Also, partnering with a managed services provider (MSP) means having an extra team of IT experts able to troubleshoot and remediate issues that arise. With remote monitoring and management (RMM), backup and disaster recovery (BDR) and cloud computing, you’ll have access to the latest technology and business-grade solutions to help you maintain uptime and profitability.
2. On-Demand Labor
The cost of staffing an IT department is significant. It’s a line item that many businesses can afford to get rid of, but it may be preventing you from being productive and profitable. With managed services, however, you have access to outsourced IT labor, meaning you can focus your existing human resources where you need them most. For many companies having an Internal IT Staff is not possible and having the benefits of an in-house IT staff benefits without the costs is a significant business advantage over your competitors. Additionally, MSPs have access to tools like Network Operations Centers (NOCs) and RMM software that makes managing your IT environment much easier and less costly than hiring more internal staff.
3. Managed Service is NOT just for larger companies. SMB’s can take advantage of Managed Services as well.
Small businesses don’t have the luxury of having an internal IT staff. Having a Managed Services company partner with you allows SMB’s to take advantage of IT without the added cost. SMB’s can hire a Managed Services Provider and no longer wonder what their IT costs are going to be for the month. Quality Managed Service Providers can offer Support, AntiVirus Software, and Remote Access with a guaranteed monthly cost. No surprises and businesses can confidently know what their IT costs will be monthly. See firsthand how Northern Arizona IT, LLC can save your business money.
