What Level of Managed IT Services Is Right for You?

August 04, 2016

Outsourcing IT management used to be a luxury; however, according to a recent study, the cost has dropped 80% in the last five years. That's good news for small and large businesses alike, since outsourcing IT can improve security, improve efficiency, and save money.

Here are some factors to consider when deciding what level of managed IT services is right for you:

Current Staff

If you are a small business, farming out IT management is much less expensive than hiring someone to head up your IT department, yet even large organizations with in-house IT staff can benefit from outsourcing a number of functions. When IT has to drop everything and fix unexpected problems, it detracts from work they could be doing to help grow the business. Functions not tied to specific sources of revenue, such as server maintenance, email, cloud storage, and security, are good options to outsource.

Future IT Needs

Is there new technology that your business would benefit from, but your team doesn’t have the skills to deploy it? You can save time, money, and a lot of headaches by outsourcing that work.

The State of your IT Infrastructure and Security

Your IT infrastructure is the backbone of your business, and if your infrastructure is lacking, problems arise. At best, you miss the chance to be more efficient. At worst, you risk losing critical data and facing steep fines for not taking adequate steps to protect customer information. A managed IT service provider can offer 24/7 monitoring, backup and disaster recovery, cloud storage, and software updates to prevent lost data.

Cost Benefits

Outsourcing IT services has a number of cost benefits. First, you don’t have to incur the costs of staffing, overhead, or capital investments, and your costs are predictable. In addition, managed IT services providers offer access to the latest technology and the experts to deploy them.
