Top Four Reasons to use a Managed Service Provider for IT Services and IT Support

Technology is complicated…if you don’t understand it. As companies across the country are embracing outsourcing segments of their business, many are realizing the benefits of outsourcing their IT services and IT support.

When you outsource your IT services, you increase business efficiency by making sure that everything is running, secure, and protected. When something goes wrong (because in technology, something will go wrong), there is IT support one phone call away.

It just makes sense. Below are some of the many benefits of outsourcing IT services and IT support.

Industry Expertise

Managed IT Services firms have teams with hundreds of years of combined experience consulting with small businesses and developing technology solutions for real business challenges. The combined experience and continuing education make sure that business technology is up-to-date and top-notch.

Expected Costs

IT disruptions are productivity disruptions. Having a break/fix contract works in theory, but still leaves you with the worry of when something will go wrong and more importantly what the unexpected cost and response time will be. Outsourcing your IT minimizes downtime and makes IT expenses more predictable.

Business Continuity

No company – in any industry – can afford downtime. It is not enough to be reactive, businesses must be proactive. Managed IT Service firms identify and fix issues before they cause problems. Many IT challenges can be resolved remotely or overnight, causing businesses fewer disruptions.

Around The Clock IT Support and Peace of Mind

Managing risk is important, but what is even more valuable is reducing risk. 60% of companies will go out of business within 6 months of a cyber incident. Outsourced IT Service firms reduce that risk by putting advanced security technology in place to help protect your business from online threats, including malicious software and cyberattacks.

Every small business owner knows the importance of their business data. What many don't realize is that, while the chances of a major disaster are quite remote, most of the data loss is the result of small localized problems. Business owners need to ask themselves, in the event of a disaster, do we have a plan to recover all our lost information?
