Top 4 Advantages to Using an IT Managed Services Provider, Plus the Key Tech Solutions Your Business Needs to Succeed

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.

Seek a Complete IT Solution

As technology continues to advance and remains central to business success, many companies and organizations have turned to managed service providers to oversee crucial IT functions.

According to CompTIA’s 2016 Buying Guide for Managed Services, 64 percent of organizations are already using managed IT services.

An IT managed services provider takes a holistic approach to your technology needs and offers numerous benefits, including:

  • 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.

  3. Ensure business productivity: Using a managed services provider allows you to take a proactive approach to IT problems; 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.

Case Study: Daffan Construction
