A BEVY OF ADVANTAGES WITH MANAGED IT SERVICES
Managed IT services that are outsourced through a managed IT group can really take your business to the next level. Through managed services, you can:
-substantively control IT expenses
-reduce the cost of labor
-obtain professional, top-tier support
-enjoy the advantage of experienced service provision
-increase competitive edge through efficiency
-implement new technology quickly
-focus on core business requirements
-reduce operational/financial risk
-facilitate dependable security
-Future proof your business
ADVANTAGES OF A FLAT FEE MODEL
Managed IT services that are available at a flat rate offer predictable monthly costs, allowing you to set an exact budget for IT throughout a given fiscal year. This isn’t possible on your own and can’t be reasonably expected from a break/fix service solutions model. But through proactive support at a flat fee, you can know your yearly IT expenses to the penny. What’s more: you’re likely to save.
Having an on-site IT team requires that you integrate such group of professionals into your labor pool— this includes all the surrounding legal provisions and benefits packages. Even a break/fix support model is more expensive in this regard, because by the time you requisition service, it’s usually substantial service that may include a complete refurbishment or replacement of existing systems.
Additionally, when you go with a flat fee managed service solution, you’re working with a group that has the prerogative to stay current on tech trends and provide their integration as professionally as possible. You can’t get that kind of support from an in-house team unless your own business provides IT support. Additionally, a managed service provider’s team has worked with multiple clients and obtained exceptional experience that can’t be sourced any other way.
INCREASED COMPETITIVE EDGE AND CORE OPERATIONAL QUALITY
All these advantages make you more profitable and, thereby, more able to compete on the same level as other businesses that provide services similar to yours. Also, operations will become more efficient once they’ve been professionally upgraded.
When it comes to the implementation of new technology innovations, you’ll have a better chance of seamless transition through an MSP as well.
All these advantages help you concentrate on those core aspects of your business which are integral to profitability and growth. An all-inclusive infrastructure including on-site provisions grows as your operation does, and can eventually hinder the core of your organization. Managed services curtail this opportunity cost while helping you conserve your resources.
MORE SECURE, RISK-FREE CONTINUITY
When taken together, all these data points describe a business operating at decreased financial risk and increased technological security. You’re able to spend less and get more. Also, that which you receive is more qualitative, meaning you don’t just experience the same level of operations— you’re now actually getting better technology service.
FINDING A LOCAL SOLUTION
Managed IT services are going to serve you much better in an external capacity than internal solutions could, and that becomes especially true when you consider how profoundly efficient cloud computing applications are. While working with an MSP doesn’t require you to climb aboard the cloud, many local solutions make doing so feasible, cost-effective, and something to be recommended. We at ION247 provide the kind of technologically-advanced, top-tier support you need to maximize profit, minimize expenses, and operate at your highest level. Want to know more? Contact us!
