How Managed IT Can Go Beyond COVID

by Erik Briceno

Managed IT was (and is) an obvious necessity during the COVID-19 crisis. But its role will continue to be relevant once the emergency does finally end — whenever that may be. Many organizations are slowly trying to make the transition back to traditional work environments. And just as many simply won’t, as they have now fully embraced remote working. In both instances, managed IT is essential to have.

Managed IT will help you get back to “normal.”

If you happen to be one of the few who believe things will return to exactly the way they were once all of this is over, you are unfortunately mistaken. That being said, it is entirely possible to at least gain some semblance of recovery and normalcy. For those who really want to get back to the office, managed services can definitely aid with the transition back. Indeed, managed IT services will be counted on more than ever before to help with this recovery process. Additionally, many of the adaptations that were made for remote collaboration can be carried over in a way that benefits everyone. Prioritizations can be shifted to allow more freedom for workers to focus on development and innovation while managed IT keeps everything else afloat.

Managed IT can help you reshape your organization.

This “unexpected global work-from-home experiment” has forced most organizations to accept it as a legitimate option. Remote collaboration tools have been placed front and center, while managers and team leaders have scrambled to learn how to make the most of them — all while maintaining productivity. During this innovative venture, numerous security issues have cropped up, and government agencies have put out several bulletins on how best to resolve them. Coordinating all of this can be a handful, but this is also a tremendous opportunity for re-structuring and indeed optimizing your organization for the future. It’s the perfect time to make meaningful upgrades, and “future-proofing” applies just as much to a business as it does to the hardware and software it runs on.

How Managed IT Can Go Beyond COVIDRunning a business under normal circumstances is difficult enough. Trying to do so during the pandemic has been both mentally and emotionally exhausting. Both you and your IT team could certainly use the help that a managed IT service provides — both during and after the crisis.

Things are getting better, but only through collaboration — whether that collaboration is physical or performed remotely.
