Outsourcing IT services may sound contrary to cost savings, but Managed IT Services are designed to provide you with the solutions you need at your desired budget. CFOs who made the move see cost savings as their competitive advantage is growing.
How do Managed IT Services work?
You basically outsource the IT needs to an outside service provider with managed services. The service bundle can be tailored to anything you want, but usually managed IT service providers offer:
- Detection of threats and vulnerabilities, and controlling the network 24/7;
- Cloud computing applications;
- 24/7 Offsite Expertise Control;
- Flexible payment plans depend on what you use – that is, you don’t pay for those things you don’t need.
How can Managed IT Services reduce your operating expenses?
As the information technology environment has become more complex, companies have turned to managed IT services for support. The leverage of a trusted, third-party MSP has many benefits to it. You will boost your everyday business operations and free up internal IT teams to concentrate on strategic projects. Importantly, outsourcing to managed IT services provides cost savings that will impact your bottom line considerably.
1. Concentrate more on Core Projects
A professionally Managed IT Service Provider would ensure the efficiency and security of your business network, freeing your internal staff from control and maintenance. This provides them with the ability to undertake ventures designed to push the company forward, rather than being bound to the status quo.
2. A detailed strategy for disasters
Disaster planning is critical and has an impact on your capital spending. The average cyber-attack costs SMBs almost $55,000 in costs, ranging from downtime to upgrades to the infrastructure. This can involve unforeseen capital costs for new equipment. With a managed IT services provider, you can reduce those unforeseen costs and, if they occur, simply turn them into operating expenses.
3. Infrastructure Minimisation
To acquire a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure requires investment in hardware, software and an expert team. With managed IT services, you can save the overhead cost and enjoy unlimited Help-Desk along with full monitoring, maintenance and support – plus loads of add-on options to build a comprehensive package of IoT solutions customized to suit the needs of your business. Essentially, whilst you are accessing everything you need from the cloud, we provide the hardware.
4. Reduce Training and Onboarding Costs
Internal IT staff would require extra training – along with the expense of delivering it – to be kept up to date with the introduction of new products and technologies. An MSP will provide you with industry professionals who have a wide range of skills and experience, saving time and resources for your company.
5. Higher uptime
If the equipment fails, it is up to the in-house employees to repair it and in this situation, the costs associated with new equipment can be extremely high. MSPs not only improve your uptime by taking care of these issues for you – they reduce your every step of the way your overall capital outlay.
Managed IT services provide you with the experience, uninterrupted efficiency and cost savings that you need to develop.
6. Protect your reputation with increased security
Missing data, network problems, unintended downtime –all these issues can affect the credibility of your company. Companies are expected to protect personal data from customers, so any infrastructure or cloud-based issues that arise can have a negative effect on public sentiment. For any company, reputation risk management should be at the forefront, because a weakened reputation can lead to huge losses.
