The Benefits of having your business IT Managed.

What are Managed IT Services?

Technology has come a long way and has become the base of the majority of businesses nowadays. Large companies are no longer the only ones that need IT support – so do small businesses. Managed Service Providers (MSP’s), have come into this market to identify threats, and fixing any potential problems as they come up.

In essence, Managed IT services incorporate delegating IT tasks or operations to a third-party provider, who then takes responsibility for monitoring, management and repair, all around the clock.

However, this system was not always in place. Before managed services made their intro to the market, the only was to deal with technical problems was to wait for a desktop or server to stop operating efficiently and call-in professional help. This meant that alot of time would be spent explaining what the issue is, and then looking for a solution. Even though this system was accepted once upon a time, it is not anymore.

Due to the stakes being so high, there is a greater need for security and high-level support preventing system failures and catch potential problems before they become critical, but the benefit of Managed IT Services is immeasurable.

How do they help the small/mid-sized business owner?

1. Proper Budgeting IT Costs

Paying for what you use and at any time you need it. You can budget effectively because you can outsource fixed IT costs into variable costs.

2. Human Resources Labor Costs

The job hiring process can be tedious and costly and there is no guarantee of a match between employees or meeting expectations. Outsourcing gives you, as a small or mid-sized business to focus the work force on areas where you need them the most, and not worrying about an IT team.

3. Trained, Experienced, Qualified, Certified.

If you aren’t trained in IT, how can you be sure your employee is qualified? Do you know how much it costs for your company to train them and pay for certifications like Microsoft, HPE, Red Hat Enterprise, etc for security controls? Even if you purchase all of these, you can never guarantee that they will stay in your company, however you can guarantee that our trained and professional staff will always be compliant through our agreement.

4. Qualified doesn’t equal Experienced

It Service companies see it time and time again where staff are academically qualified, however they don’t have the experience to deal with various situations that arise when working in IT. At hostingb2b our staff are well trained and come with years of experience to support your businesses technological path.

5. Efficient and Competitiveness

Companies that try and do IT services in-house incur higher costs a there is more research, development and implementation time, which ultimately transfers to the customers of your business.

6. Focused on your business core

Businesses have limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. By outsourcing your IT needs can help your business stay focused on your core objectives and not be distracted by complex IT decisions and setbacks.

7. Faster Implementation in NEW Technologies

As a high-quality IT service organization, we have the resources to start all types of new projects right away accommodated with years o experience which saves time and money. Handling the same project in-house may not be so easy as it involves weeks or even months to hire the right people, train them and provide the support they need.

8. Risk Based Approach

Outsourcing providers mange the majority of the risk for you, because we have the industry specific knowledge about things like security and compliance issues. Because markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions and technologies change all the time, we are generally better at deciding how to avoid risk in their area of expertise.

9. Small is the new big

Most small businesses aren’t able to afford to match in-house support services they may need larger companies maintain. Outsourcing helps small businesses act “big” by giving them access to similar technology and expertise, bringing them up to a similar level with the big companies and give you competitive advantages.

10. Compliance and Security

Is your firewall up to date? Do you have a DMZ installed? Do you audit your Workstations and Servers? Has your company implemented PCI security standards and work to maintain those standards? By outsourcing to hostingb2b, you can rest assured that your company is minimizing risks associated with maintaining client data, credit card numbers, sensitive competitive information and more.
