IT Managed Services: The Key to Growing Your Business

by Erik Briceno

When you’re running a business, the key to success is remaining focused on your vision and committed to fulfilling it. That’s why it’s essential to keep distractions to a minimum — including the technology your business requires. You shouldn’t have to think about it — you just need it to work.

That’s where an IT managed services provider comes in. Outsourcing your IT tech support can improve your performance measures in terms of cost, quality, service and speed. Look for a provider who will work to understand your company and analyze your needs, then translate those objectives and processes into solutions that span the lifecycle of your entire IT infrastructure.

The Benefits of IT Managed Services

IT Managed Services: The Key to Growing Your BusinessAn IT managed services provider takes a holistic approach to your technology needs and offers numerous benefits. Such benefits include:

  • Support services
  • Security needs
  • Data protection
  • Network solutions
  • Systems integration

Although the options offered by a managed services provider allows companies to realize cost savings, they also go well beyond that by providing additional benefits, such as generating revenue or increasing efficiency. A managed services provider not only keeps your technology up and running, but also helps create a comprehensive IT plan that allows you to achieve your business objectives.

4 Reasons to Rely on IT Managed Services

1.    Reduce operating costs

By outsourcing some or all of your IT functions, you can significantly cut costs. You eliminate the capital investment needed for purchasing and maintaining hardware and software.

2.    Minimize risks and improve security

An IT managed services provider can keep the doors to your network and systems locked and monitored. The best protection against threats — ranging from hackers to malware — stems from safeguards that are an integral part of your network from the start.

3.    Ensure business productivity

Using a managed services provider allows you to take a proactive approach to IT problems. You will gain access to newer technologies, including cloud capabilities, and handle IT for your remote workforce.

4.    Free available resources

Turning to a managed services provider allows your internal staff to focus on more strategic work. Often, the idea is to complement rather than replace the IT department.

Proof That Managed IT Works

Take the case of Daffan Construction for example. In this case study, the company had experienced technical problems that severely impacted critical business functions.

Then, V2 Systems came in and reconfigured their networks and updated applications to meet Daffan’s changing demands. Today, the team is now able to handle a greater workload with substantially fewer problems.

“Several people told us we needed a whole new system,” said Bill Daffan, the company’s president. “V2 Systems came in and offered alternatives that were less money and a lot more user-friendly.”
