When a business’s technology is working the way it should, profits can soar. While there are lots of ways individual businesses can choose to manage their technology, there is one path that provides the absolute best return for investment a company can make in IT: a managed IT services provider (MSP). In partnering with an MSP, you can not only save money, but you can actually increase profits.
A Team of Experts at a Fraction of the Price
The in-house IT department is a solution that some businesses choose to manage their IT needs. However, hiring even one full time IT staff member, let alone an entire team, will incur extra costs in:
- HR expenditures
- Annual salary and benefits
- Physical workspace
- Additional taxes
An MSP will provide more (and better) protection and support for a fixed rate without any of the added costs listed above. Think about that for a moment: one contractually-guaranteed fixed rate with the resources of an entire company full of IT experts versus all the hidden additional costs that come with hiring a new internal employee (or employees!).
A partnership with an MSP means you have access to 24/7 support, too. An IT department only works when your office is open. What happens if there’s an emergency during a weekend or after hours? With an MSP, you can get the help you need whenever you need it without incurring overtime costs.
Constant Expert Monitoring and Infrastructure Maintenance
Ransomware and other malware can be catastrophically expensive for a business that is unprepared to deal with an attack. A managed IT services provider constantly monitors the safety of your network, and their team of experts are prepared for all the potential cyber attacks you may face. Just like you wouldn’t want to be thrown into a boxing ring without ever having boxed, you don’t want to be faced with a malware attack without a clue about how to fight it! Your MSP will fight cyber battles for you and you can rest in the knowledge that you’re being protected all the time.
An MSP will also create a plan with you to maintain your technology infrastructure. Because the best MSPs are a partner rather than just a call center, they will come alongside your business to understand exactly what you need in terms of technology. They can help you choose the right technology to maximize your profits while saving you money that would otherwise be wasted on outdated equipment maintenance. Their knowledge and expertise will empower you to focus on growing your business.
