Does your organization experience problems managing its IT? If so, you’re not alone – far from it. Headaches with technology management tend to be more common for small business owners, since they often have fewer resources and less time to spend on it than large companies do. You could soldier on – or you could partner with a managed service provider and make your life much easier.
What could outsourcing your IT to a managed service provider do for your business? If you don’t have an in-house IT department you will be able to access the services that you need, tailored to your organization’s requirements. Your partnership with your provider will be based on a service level agreement, which will specify what services you require.
When you opt for outsourcing your IT, you will free up resources so that you can focus on your business goals. The staff who are usually tasked with IT maintenance can concentrate on other aspects of your operations, like generating sales and revenue. The value of acquiring expert assistance for your IT cannot be underestimated.
Often, small businesses rely on hardworking individuals for technology management, but that doesn’t mean they’re always properly qualified to do the work properly and keep up with the latest developments in the field. With expert assistance from a managed service provider like Quikteks, you’ll never have to worry about your infrastructure being at risk. Alternatively, if you do have IT professionals on your staff, we can relieve them of some of their work burden by taking responsibility for many basic IT maintenance chores, such as patches, updates and more.
One of the biggest advantages of managed services is the savings you can make, both financially and in terms of time. The traditional break-fix model of IT maintenance involves addressing problems once they’ve occurred. This can mean interruption to operations while IT is being repaired. With an MSP, the approach is proactive. Systems are monitored for emergent problems or anomalies, so that potential breakdowns can be avoided or their impact minimized.
Preventative maintenance and monitoring can relieve your staff of the ongoing responsibility of checking the healthy functioning of your business technology. Avoiding downtime is an important way to save money. Think of what you can do for your business, without time wasted when tech fails and money flowing out for fixing the problems that technology almost inevitably throws up.
