Why Engage a Managed Services Provider?

do_more

I have heard Managed Services Providers (MSPs) compared to Insurance Companies.  This is not accurate.  You engage Insurance Companies to provide a service you hope not to use; you engage a Managed Services Provider to provide services you will use. 

 

 

 

 

TOP 10 Reasons from CompTIA: 

  1. Improve security 
  2. A proactive approach to IT problems 
  3. Better uptime 
  4. Gain access to newer technologies 
  5. Cost savings 
  6. Peace of mind 
  7. Free up internal staff for strategic planning 
  8. Tap into cloud solutions 
  9. Lack of an internal IT department 
  10. Handle remote office IT 

Let’s explore Cost Savings: 

  1. Predictable monthly budgeting 
  2. Low capital outlay 
  3. A team of experts with skills not easily found in one single hire candidate (SMB) 
  4. Free up IT Department for strategic planning while MSP maintains day to day functions (Large Businesses) 
  5. MSP assumes delivery risk; productivity incentive 
  6. Long term solution 

Peace of Mind – Organizations can focus on strategic business planning and growth knowing their internal processes are operationally sound.  MSP as a Strategic Partner grows with you. 

Flexibility, availability and functionality. 

What to look for in an MSP 

  1. Strategic Partner:  Do they understand your business goals and provide consultative services along with the basic services (email/backup/monthly monitoring)? 
  2. Reliability:  Service levels, do they provide support when you need it? 
  3. Solid Track Record:  Do they have the knowledge and skill set to help your company achieve your business objectives and growth? 
  4. Established processes:  Are these documented?
