A Managed Service Provider, known as an MSP, is where you can outsource your IT services to an expert provider, so they can take care of things for you. The benefits of being in partnership or employing an MSP are endless and we have summarised a list of them here, to help you make the decision about whether hiring an MSP is the right decision for your business or organisation.
What Are the Benefits of Using a Managed Service Provider?
Firstly, by using an MSP to address and manage all your IT needs, you will save time which can be better spent on developing your business or organisation. By hiring a professional to implement your best IT practices, you will be sure to cover all the requirements of your IT, communications and security in order to run your day-to-day tasks efficiently and smoothly.
You can also save money. It is not possible for one person to have all the knowledge or time to cover every aspect of running your business. For some organisations, having an outsourced MSP means that you can benefit from the skills and knowledge of multiple specialist team members for a fraction of the cost of hiring just one person to complete these tasks in-house. By agreeing upon a level of service and a strategy that suits your needs, you can also rely on a guaranteed cost that will remain consistent and help you balance the books.
Technology is moving at a fast pace and by using a Managed Service Provider for your IT provisions, you can ensure that your IT facilities and tools are always kept up to date and utilise the latest developments in tech. This includes any cyber security issues that you may face, so that you can work with your MSP to provide a preventative and safe strategy that is catered to your business needs.
Occasionally, things can go wrong. From technical faults and dealing with large service providers such as Microsoft, to potential cyber attacks and fraudulent activity, your MSP can help to resolve issues quickly and reduce the impact of any disasters that could halt your service delivery or compromise your company or client data. Having an expert on hand when you need them, means that you will always be covered when you need expert advice or intervention and helps to put your mind at rest.
MSP services are also scalable, which means that no matter what size or stage your business or organisation is working at, you can receive a top level of service and create IT strategies and provisions (such as hardware, useful software, digital efficiency tools, communications and disaster recovery planning) that will reduce your stress levels, improve the services you can deliver to your own service users and provide everything you need to run your business successfully, now and into the future.
