Imagine having someone to go to work and perform your boring tasks for you, and all you have to do is sit pretty, wait for the paycheck, and give him some dough. Sounds great, right?
What’s even better is that this “clone” is actually an expert version of you – more efficient, more knowledgeable, and more “techie”. Which means your job is accomplished at a very high level of quality, without you having to move a single muscle.
That’s exactly what Managed IT services can do for a business.
Managing and maintaining one’s IT infrastructure is something that no business owner really enjoys doing. First of all, he’s a businessman. He couldn’t care less about software maintenance or bandwidth management or data recovery or equipment repair. All he wants is to focus on how his business can generate income.
With Managed IT services, you leave the fate of your IT in the hands of IT professionals. You get to save yourself from a lot stress and save a lot of resources at the same time.
But that’s not the only thing you can benefit from outsourcing your IT:
Out: labor costs. In: flexible rates. With Managed IT services, you only pay for the service you used. No more worrying about the expenses of hiring, training, and paying for in-house technicians who might not even be up to the task in the first place.
Out: old school methods. In: innovative, trendy technology. As Managed IT services providers, they are expected to be equipped with the latest software and know-how when it comes to enterprise IT. This ensures that your competitors won’t get ahead.
Out: security woes. In: trusty disaster recovery programs. Security standards are almost imperative when working with an outside firm, because that’s obviously one of the main concerns of a business that’s looking to outsource. You can sleep well at night knowing that all your data are backed-up and secured in case of a threat.
Out: legal, financial risks. In: compliance and stability. Every business that uses technology plays with a certain amount of risk, especially with government regulations, IT policies and market requirements. Passing that responsibility to your own outside IT team can get some of the pressure off your back.
- Out: juggling between tasks. In: more focus on business. Business owners have limited time, attention and energy to check on every aspect of the company. With the IT aspect taken care of by the right people, more concentration can be given to what matters most: running the business.
