As a business owner, you use technology as part of your everyday routine: printers, computers, routers, and more. As long as those things are running smoothly, you might not even realize how vital they are. Unfortunately, all too often, things stop functioning properly. That’s what your IT team is for. Many business owners assume they have no choice but to fill their own IT positions. However, hiring a managed services team can lead to better performance across your business.

You’ll see more “up” time

A managed IT team has all the tools necessary to keep your technology running efficiently. In fact, many of them will ensure that your technology is up and running 99% of the time. Chances are, your in-house IT team proactively wouldn’t be able to accomplish the same thing.

Managed IT Services are less Expensive

The cost of an in-house IT team isn’t just about the salary you pay them. You should also consider:

  • The cost of benefits packages
  • Sick time, including what happens if your 1-2 man IT team is out sick when everything falls apart
  • Technology tools that keep your business running smoothly but can have a high up-front investment
  • Specific equipment for your IT team, including their own computers and printers
  • Office space, desks, and other essentials that keep the IT team operating

When everything is working correctly, you pay your IT team to sit around and monitor your networks. With a managed IT service provider, you’ll incur fewer expenses and be able to manage your technology more efficiently.

Managed IT Service Providers always have the Latest Tools

They know what’s new in the technology industry, from the latest in network security and the best antivirus software, to what tools will make your server run more efficiently. Even better, they’re more likely to be at the cutting edge of technology, using those tools to ensure that your business continually runs smoothly. You won’t have to pay for the upgrades, though; that’s already part of your contract.

Managed IT Service Providers offer a Wider Range of Skills

Chances are, if you have an in-house IT team, each individual on that team has their own specialty. It’s not possible for every tech to know everything. For a small IT team, this can spell disaster when the wrong thing breaks–or at least mean that they’re going to spend a long time searching for the answer. Managed IT service providers, however, have a wide range of skills among them. When you have a problem, it will be dealt with by someone who is familiar with the issue and knows how to get your equipment back up and running as soon as possible. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to hire a managed IT service provider, the benefits speak for themselves. These benefits make it obvious that managed IT service providers are exactly what your business needs.
