IT is a critical component of business, and companies are devoting a large portion of their budgets toward it. This trend is expected to grow as we become increasingly reliant on technology in the workplace. This anticipated growth is not limited to large companies—a new update of the Worldwide Semiannual Small and Medium Business Spending Guide from International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that total IT spending by small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) will approach $568 billion during 2017. Moreover, this number will increase by more than $100 billion to exceed $676 billion by 2021. These statistics show that SMBs recognize the value of IT, with hardware, software, and services helping to improve productivity and keep up with the competition.
As organizations become increasingly more reliant on technology for their day-to-day business operations, IT is a critical area for businesses both large and small. Managing your IT infrastructure is a complex, demanding, and fluid endeavor. It is a task that most companies simply aren’t capable of adequately tackling themselves due to lack of time and resources. Today's IT-driven work environment presents your team with a number of pain points that will inevitably arise.
By outsourcing IT services to a Managed Services vendor, you can alleviate a number of pain points associated with an in-house approach to IT including:
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.
There aren’t many things quite as important to your business as the health of your IT network. After all, most businesses are dependent on a highly functioning IT network to support daily business operations and store client data. You want to make sure you’re partnering with a managed services provider that prioritizes your IT needs as much as you do.
Peter Drucker, the famed management consultant and self-described social ecologist, once said, “Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it. It is what the client or customer gets out of it.”
The ability to remotely monitor networks, PCs, printers, copiers and multifunctional products, when infused with the expertise of managed service providers, enables organizations to prevent network issues. Staff productivity is increased and security risks are decreased through various disaster and preventative tools. Servers, PCs and all other integral components of the network can be proactively monitored and data backups are monitored and validated. Desktops are managed with anti-virus and spyware detection tools and patches applied proactively.
