5 Benefits of Managed IT Services

What are the Benefits of Managed IT Services? Of all the reasons you started your business, running an IT environment probably wasn’t one of them. But the more you rely on digital tools to connect with customers, plan schedules, keep records, process sales or whatever else you use it for, the more dealing with technology can seem like a full-time job.

That’s especially true with concerns about security on the rise. One recent survey found
62% of small and medium-sized businesses lack the skills to deal with security issues
themselves — and 52% felt “helpless” to defend against new cyber attacks.

You can relieve your burden with a managed IT service arrangement. We take on the responsibility of securing, monitoring, and maintaining your technology so you can focus on your business.

 

5 Benefits of Managed IT Services

1. Stronger IT security

Because of the different technologies needed to manage and operate businesses, we are faced with more cyber threats than ever before. The technology that we have is more sophisticated and at the same time it became harder to keep up with threats as they evolve so fast — being confident that you’re protected is harder without managed IT services. 

One of the benefits of Managed IT Services is we can implement proven layered security processes and always up-to-date solutions to keep your business safe and compliant with data protection laws and regulations. 

Our approach can cover everything from endpoint protection for your devices to patch management for your applications, password management processes for your team, network firewalls, external vulnerability scanning, and more.

When you don’t have a managed IT service arrangement with persistent monitoring, virus scanning, password refresh practices, and clear security policies, you can be at risk of a data breach. 

The result can be damage to your reputation, lost time and revenue, regulatory fines, and more.

 

2. Strategic budgeting and predictable costs

With managed IT services, you gain more control and save more over your IT expenses. A cost structure tailored to your business billing means you can budget with confidence instead of incurring unexpected costs when something breaks down. 

Each businesses have their own IT needs that’s why its very important to find the best managed IT services based on your company’s profile. This will also eliminate the possibility of paying for certain features of the plan that is not needed.

Planned maintenance helps prevent those breakdowns in the first place, and with a partner managing your IT environment, your team can spend less time dealing with IT issues. 

In addition to planned maintenance to minimize any IT issues while your business is operating or disrupt your business operations, we also have IT experts that can advise you on different technologies to invest in to meet your business goals — so you can plan for those expenditures in advance.

3. Operational efficiency and business growth

We have more streamlined process, accurate data, an easier way of monitoring cash flow, and more using technology in our business. Unfortunately, there is also a downside to it. Businesses face more cyber threats than ever before. It’s hard to keep up as threats evolve — or be confident you’re protected. 

One of the benefits of managed IT services is that  we have accommodating and expert IT who can implement proven layered security processes and always up-to-date solutions to keep your business safe and compliant with data protection laws and regulations. 

Our approach can cover everything from endpoint protection for your devices to patch management for your applications, password management processes for your team, network firewalls, external vulnerability scanning, and more.

4. Data protection you can count on

When it comes to business, it’s normal to expect that there will be an unexpected situation  that can happen. Power outages, fires, floods, pandemics, and other unexpected events can disrupt your business in the blink of an eye. 

And the goal is to be able to get back up and running as quickly as possible. For the to take place, you need a rigorous, well-designed data backup and protection plan. 

We can put in place business recovery measures that protect you against data loss even if something happens to your physical IT equipment.

 

 

WITHOUT MANAGED SERVICES

Without a robust backup solution in place, a sudden accident or turn of events can set your business back to square one

— having to reconstruct sales orders, rebuild customer files, redo time-consuming work, and more, all at a high cost of time and effort.

 

5. A proactive approach

Ultimately, the managed IT service approach is all about being proactive: anticipating problems instead of reacting to them and keeping your technology working at its best instead of waiting for it to break down. This brings you greater security, productivity, and return on your technology investments — and also peace of mind.
