The Top Five Reasons You Should Be Using A Managed Service Provider.
Hiring a managed service provider is a beneficial solution for enhancing your business productivity. Using either a fully managed or co-managed service can provide your business with essential tools to keep up to date with constant IT demand.
By outsourcing all your IT to a service provider, your business will be covered at an affordable cost, which is scalable to the demands of your business. With built-in repairs, instant support, proactive monitoring and routine maintenance guaranteed, a service provider can work independently or alongside your in-house IT team as a co-managed service.
Here are our top 5 reasons to hire a managed service provider:
1. Cost-Effective Solution
A managed service provider is a cost-effective solution to monitoring and maintaining optimum business efficiency. Building or expanding an existing IT department can be expensive and time-consuming. However, these costs can all be reduced by outsourcing your IT. MSP’s offer fully trained IT experts able to manage all areas of computing – from business setups, Cloud servers, IT security, updates, disaster recovery and applications – for one flexible monthly rate, MSP’s have you covered, leaving you with time to focus on and invest in other areas of your business.
2. Built-in Repairs
With a managed service provider, you no longer need to worry about expensive repair fees. A service provider will be able to find and resolve any issues quickly and efficiently, getting you back up and running again in the event of any error. There’s also no need to track down specific maintenance teams to fix repairs, no matter the problem, a managed service provider will be able to solve the issue.
3. Instant Support
A fully managed service provider will always be on hand should an issue arise. Many managed service partners work remotely, so no matter where they are, they can access your system and resolve the problem from any location.
Managed service providers are contactable 24/7, so if you have any issues, they will always be on hand to guide you through any concerns. Contacting support is easy – just a quick email or call is all it takes, and your service provider will do the rest.
Managed service partners understand that timing is everything, so no matter the issue, they will aim to have it resolved as quickly as possible to avoid long-term interruption to on your business, clients and employees.
Furthermore, providers can also cover any in-house staff sickness and holiday, allowing the rest of your team to concentrate on other runnings of your business.
4. Proactive Monitoring
By hiring a managed service provider, your system is always fully monitored for updates and potential threats. Providers can assist with password protection, cloud storage and disaster recovery, so should a threat compromise your system, an MSP will always be on guard to prevent potential attacks before they become a legitimate threat.
However, should the worse happen, and your business becomes compromised, a managed service partner will have a disaster recovery solution in place for you, a back-up to your files and applications so your business can continue to run smoothly.
Most importantly, proactive monitoring ensures client information is kept secure, your website and business applications are easy to navigate, and that technical faults do not hinder employees.
5. Routine Maintenance
Managed service providers can help to extend the life of your hardware and will perform regular maintenance checks as often as you require, to ensure your system is in prime working condition. They will scan for any risks to make sure your business isn’t compromised, as well as keep your systems up to date with the latest software applications, so you don’t have to focus on these details in-house.
