Many large organisations prefer to use Managed Services to meet their needs, however many smaller businesses continue to be sceptical of this solution. One has to ask why? Could it be as simple as limited education or understanding?
Here are six reasons to consider:
1: Control costs
In any business it’s important to be as cost effective as possible. IT area is no different in fact a poorly managed system could cost you much more than you think. It is essential to have a system that works with your budget without comprising on quality. Even more important an IT system should be viewed simply as a productivity tool to maximise the staff and business process. Managed Services is the most feasible and practical way to accomplish this and often the most economical.
2: Increasing Complexity
Due to the ever constant and ever increasing advancements in hardware and software components the IT system is a constantly evolving portion of the business. Many businesses with limited resources find themselves being left way behind their competition. But, with a Managed Service you are able to enjoy the advantages of the latest IT solutions at a fraction of the costs – allowing you to provide the best possible service to your clients and staff.
3: Dependable IT infrastructure
We find especially for smaller businesses, it can be tedious to maintain an in-house IT arm; and they run the risk of overstretching resources and spreading themselves too thin, compromising the quality and output of the IT department. Manages Services allow you to have a stable and dependable IT division that’s dedicated to meeting your specific needs in a cost effective manner. They also provide the added benefit of multiple engineers with differing skills available at all times.
4: Comprehensive solutions
More often than not, small and undermanned internal IT departments often become more of a burden to the organisation – errors are more likely to occur, response and problem solving is a long slow process, staff are often overworked and underpaid resulting in them being less happy and unproductive. Managed Services are completely the opposite allowing you to utilise efficient and comprehensive solutions that are tailor-made to fit your specific requirements in a timely manner.
5: Help maintain compliance
With the market place becoming more and more competitive meeting different regulatory compliances has become a fundamental need. However smaller companies can often find themselves lost or just left wanting. Managed Services helps these companies not only understand the needs from a technical point of view, but also help the organisation comply with these requirements.
6: Relieve the Stress
In today’s world organisations have the flexibility to choose from a multitude of providers across a number of products and services resulting in the benefit of choice. However the down side to this is after the decision is made – when something does go wrong often internal IT staff can lose valuable time just going through the extended process of logging the call and then performing all the self-diagnoses requested from the supplier. This builds up stress and frustration, often causing negative knock on effects due to loss of productivity. A Managed Service provider can log and track all these calls for you often speeding up the process by performing diagnoses work before the call is logged. Ultimately allowing your staff to get on with their role and taking the company forward.
Managed Services brings you the benefits of dependability and stability. Simple, but comprehensive and updated solutions. Long-term cost effectiveness and less stress.
These are just some of the advantages of using experienced Managed Services providers to deliver efficient and custom designed IT solutions that meet your specific needs.
