No matter your industry, network connectivity and information technology are almost certainly important to your business. Unfortunately, managing IT internally is often an unnecessary and costly burden. Consider moving to managed IT, where you’ll gain a new competitive edge.
Access to Unbeatable Expertise
Regardless of your business’ industry, IT always needs to be managed. Most small businesses can’t afford to hire designated IT staff to manage technology, resulting in a hodge-podge of users clicking through help forums to find solutions to problems as they come up. Even mid-sized businesses will be stuck with IT generalists, responsible for a wide variety of technology issues. The dedicated specialist that comes with Managed IT, on the other hand, will be well-informed about even uncommon issues—no more scrambling to keep up with the latest technology. With Managed IT, you get all the benefits of having a team of experts without having to carry the cost on your own.
Use of Top-notch Infrastructure
It takes a lot to keep your company humming. You’ll need to purchase and manage everything from servers to software, and bandwidth to back-up drives. But because their cost is distributed among many clients, Managed IT providers give you the most extensive infrastructure option available to businesses of any size. Their systems will also be redundant and resilient, meaning you can rest assured that your data and services are safe. You’ll have less downtime, faster processing, more features, and better tools than you could manage independently.
Low Capital Outlay
Network and Information Technology solutions are costly. When you handle IT internally, you’re sinking your funds into equipment, hiring, training, and software. These costs can be erratic and add up quickly, diverting critical cash or tying up credit. On the other hand, Managed IT gives you the freedom to pay over time, distributing your costs rather than demanding unpredictable lump sums. You can also lease your hardware, spreading out your costs over the course of the lease. Your service agreement will outline flat monthly costs, so you’ll have reliable numbers for fiscal planning.
Whatever the role of technology in your business, Managed IT can mean the difference between a costly distraction and a strategic edge. Contact us today to find out which managed services are best for your office.
