In todayâ€™s tough market environment, many small and medium businesses are turning to Managed Services. But is the up-front cost worth it? We say yesâ€”and think youâ€™ll agree when we explain why.
With Managed Services, an IT consultant constantly manages your network, typically from afar. In other words, someone will prevent many IT problemsâ€”and fix those that do occur before they disrupt your operations.
Despite this benefit, many companies still consider Managed Services an unnecessary expense because it typically involves a monthly or yearly fee. But there are many ways that such a model can actually lower your IT costs.
- Lower overhead. It can be expensive to hire and train IT staff. In fact, staffing is often the largest portion of a companyâ€™s IT budget. You can eliminate much of that expense with Managed Services, which provide you with high-quality IT staff at a fraction of the cost.
- Increased cost predictability. The cost of responding to an IT problem is usually an unplanned expenseâ€”and often a significant one. With Managed Services, you prevent problems, so you can better predict (and therefore manage) IT costs.
- A better business model. Additionally, Managed Services provide an efficient business model. Thereâ€™s less IT down time, which means employees are less frustrated and customers are always served. That increases employee retention and helps you create long-term business relationshipsâ€”which in turn can increase your revenue.
