The Benefits of Managed Services for IT: the case for outsourcing your IT

Businesses large and small derive great benefit from outsourcing their IT, as it provides them with a significant edge in many areas. It reduces costs, it ensures you are always getting the right person for the job, and it levels the playing field between your company and its biggest competitors, whose better financial position may otherwise put them at an advantage.

You might be considering managed services for your IT if you are a small or medium sized business owner who is experiencing sudden growth and increased need for IT security and mobility; or perhaps you are an SMB who is looking to upgrade your systems, or outsource specialised IT to free up your in-house resources to work on other things. Whatever reason you have to be thinking about it, outsourcing your IT to a managed services provider is a smart move that will pay big dividends.

Here are some of the top benefits you will realise by outsourcing your IT:

•       Faster adoption of new technology

If you have determined that your company needs specific IT solutions, such as new hardware, software, applications, cloud migration, or a more robust security strategy, your IT consultant will be able to dedicate themselves to the task right away rather than you having to wait weeks for your in-house IT team to have the time to devote to it. This means you will have the task accomplished much faster, and will have an expert on hand to train your staff and key IT personnel on its implementation.

•       Control your IT expenditures

Outsourcing allows you the option of having variable IT costs. By using a managed services provider, you can turn fixed costs into a situation where you only pay for what you use, and only when you need it, freeing up your resources for you to grow your business.

•       Qualified, certified, experienced

When you outsource your IT, you are ensured that the technician is not only qualified but also professionally certified and experienced with the issues you may be experiencing. Your IT staff may be very good, but having somebody on call with a specific expertise takes the guesswork out of the equation, allowing you to get back to work faster.

•       Remain focused on what you do best

The distractions of IT decisions can take your attention away from where it should be focused, and that is on the day-to-day running of your business. By outsourcing, you are taking something significantly time-consuming off the plates of your managers and team leaders, allowing them to focus on their areas of expertise.

•       Better compliance and security

Do you know the status of your firewalls? Your anti-virus protection? Do you know what the industry standards are, and whether you comply with current data protection laws? Your IT consultant does, helping you mitigate the risk of malicious attacks that could compromise your business continuity, not to mention the privacy and protection of your customer’s personal and payment data. A managed services company can help you stay compliant, and advise you of any potential risks to your systems, recommending necessary changes to assure your protection.
