A Case in Support of Managed Services

A Case in Support of Managed Services

Thanks to what’s become known as the “as a service” business model, organizations of all sizes can take advantage of great services that once may not have been as accessible. Even better is that they are often provided at an even more affordable rate than ever before. We’ll walk you through the specifics of what you can expect to receive from a using an “as a service” model.

Considering Managed Services
To get right to the point, managed services can be considered anything that’s outsourced by your business where you pay as you go. This could include making monthly payments for someone else managing your business’ computing infrastructure--specifically a third-party managed service provider operated by technology professionals. Investing in such an outsourced solution is a great way to minimize the responsibility that your business has for maintaining critical infrastructure, while also reducing costs. While it might not look like an immediate benefit, we assure you that the peace of mind created by managed services is something to be considered for any small business with a limited budget.

We’re confident that you can save both time and resources by working with a managed service provider to maintain and manage your technology. A couple great example of this are software patching and update implementation. Let’s say that your organization spends an hour every week applying patches and security updates for each device on your infrastructure. For a single device, the amount of time spent might not seem considerable, but when it’s all added up, you are spending much more than you might realize on this task alone. With all of this extra time in the day, what else could your technicians be doing? The answer is a lot, but they might simply be too busy to do otherwise.

Outsourcing effectively eliminates many of the responsibilities that could potentially be holding your technicians back from being more productive and efficient with their time. Imagine if they were able to completely put aside most of the IT maintenance portion of their responsibilities in favor of implementing new solutions designed to help your business work more effectively. This could save your business a lot of money in its own right. You can also think of outsourced managed services as a second branch of your IT maintenance, supplementing your business’ IT in ways that might not have seemed possible in the past.

Of course, if your business doesn’t have an IT department at all, then it’s even easier to see how this type of service benefits your organization. All businesses need help with technology to at least some extent. It’s just the matter of how much. Hiring multiple technicians can put a damper on your budget, meaning that you might instead choose to have your employees manage technology when their real talents lie elsewhere. Outsourced managed services mean that there is no excuse for this any longer, as it’s much more affordable to hire professional technicians as part of a managed service provider than it is to hire a full team of on-site workers. This also decreases the likelihood that your organization will suffer from downtime due to specific parts of your IT maintenance not being performed properly.

Managed services can help your business make up for its shortcomings and come out on top. To learn more, reach out to us at 866.625.3560.
