Small and midsize business owners are caught in the middle. On one side, you have technology solutions that are changing rapidly. On the other, you have the costs associated with keeping a full-time IT staff. While your IT support team is great, a better use of your money is investing in and growing your business. How then can you keep pace with technology? By partnering with a managed service provider (MSP)!
Integrating an MSP into your technology solution can give your business an edge over the competition.
Five ways a managed service provider gives your business an advantage
Access to the experts – This is perhaps the prime benefit of partnering with an MSP. You have access to world-class tech experts when you need it – without paying for the salary and benefits. Do you need a networking superstar for a project? There’s no need to hire. You already have a relationship with your provider.
Service Level Agreements – SLAs that you and your MSP agree to will provide you with a guaranteed level of service. That translates into less downtime and access to 24/7 support.
Flexibility – Along with access to experts, you only pay for that networking superstar when you need them, saving you money. With most managed service providers, you can also modify your service plan during the year, allowing your business to pivot when an opportunity arises.
Productivity – If you need IT staff, but don’t want the expense of hiring in-house IT staff, an MSP will fully support your team. Additionally, if you already have IT staff, partnering with an MSP, frees them up to work on the tasks that matter to you the most.
Security – The cyber threat landscape is constantly shifting. Most small and midsized businesses don’t have the funds for dedicated cybersecurity staff. The last thing your business needs is a data leak or a ransomware attack, or both! An MSP will have security experts on staff to protect your data and your most precious asset, your brand.
