With many companies are now looking to streamline efficiencies, processes and save costs wherever possible – Managed IT Services are fast becoming an attractive option for businesses of all sizes. If you haven’t already considered outsourcing some of your IT to a managed service provider (MSP), we will highlight some of the fundamental reasons why many organisations have already chosen to do so below;

Keep Your IT Costs Under Control At All Times

The majority of MSP’s will offer you a fixed monthly, or annual payment plan for your systems maintenance. This will often take into account the number of people, devices or systems you require to be managed and will give you assured service level agreements as well. No nasty surprises, or changes in charges – with an easy to manage, predictable cost.

Proactive support through RMM (Remote Monitoring and Management)

With more sophisticated RMM tools at their disposal MSP’s are allowing businesses to manage alerts in a proactive manner. Systems are reporting potential errors rather than absolute failures thus allowing a proactive response. This proactive response reduces or eliminates the unscheduled downtime caused to your business when a system fails. These systems are running 24×7 and the response to alerts can be tailored to match if required.

Elasticated Services – Giving You Flexibility When You Need It Most

Another great part of the managed services offering is the flexibility that can be offered, with some providers dishing out their services on a pay-as-you-go basis. They can often deal with rapid growth when you need it, as quickly as you need it. Alternatively, you will not end up paying for services you are not using if you are looking to consolidate, or reduce costs, as the same level of resilience is applied.

Profound Expertise In Your Team

You have instant access to the best in the business and are supported by highly skilled, highly trained individuals, who would of otherwise cost a small fortune to hire in, or employ. This access to staff with specialist skills can prove invaluable to your business, even if they are only called upon once in a year. This can save your company the expense of training your team for eventualities they might only ever use once.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Most MSP’s will use the very best of breed technologies that are available, in order to deliver the very best services to their clients. Upgrades and patches are no longer a concern to your business as these are all taken care of by the service provider, behind the scenes.

Technology At The Top Of its Game

The majority of MSP’s will offer you a fixed monthly, or annual payment plan for your systems maintenance. This will often take into account the number of people, devices or systems you require to be managed and will give you assured service level agreements as well. No nasty surprises, or changes in charges – with an easy to manage, predictable cost.

Secure Infrastructure – Always

While individual cloud service providers manage their services, an MSP takes into account the security of the systems and the data, whether it is on premise or located in a datacentre. While the datacentre and its overall network infrastructure is extremely robust it is important to ensure that security is maintained through the entire IT infrastructure. A good MSP will take this in to account not only in the design but also in ensuring it is managed 24/7/365 days a year.

Greener IT

As MSP offerings will often run some or all of your services and system within a virtual environment, your company will benefit not only from power savings, and ease of access you will also be able to boast about reducing your overall carbon footprint, whilst reducing your operation costs at the same time.
