In a modern world shaped and driven by technology, businesses must make the correct technology-focused decisions to stay ahead of the pack and prepare for the future as much as possible.

Partnering with a third-party managed IT provider will ensure your company embraces technology evolution and utilizes current IT developments.

So why partner with an IT solutions provider, and what benefits will this partnership bring your company?

Optimize Productivity

There are many software and hardware applications out there to streamline and optimize your current workflow process! What’s the problem with this?

There are so many options on the market that it can feel overwhelming to read through the pros and cons alongside the dozens of pricing matrices.

Take the logical approach and let an IT Solution Provider utilize their experience and research capabilities to guide this critical investment.

A managed IT service will evaluate your current processes, IT needs, and growth plan when selecting the right tools for your company.

The best part of having an IT solutions provider take the lead in implementing all new software and hardware platforms is they can support the implementation, roll-out, and training for all employees in utilizing the new process.

This enormous support will save hours of internal overhead. Troubleshooting and staff support take some time with all new processes – technical or not! So having an experienced and dedicated staff to support your employees is a huge asset.

A Finger on the Pulse of Industry Trends

The great thing about managed services is that they see trends and patterns across multiple industries and platforms, which is incredibly insightful.

They may be supporting one of your competitors, and they could offer insight into how your company could utilize technology better to increase your bottom line.

Additionally, IT solution providers must be at the forefront of technology advancements to understand how companies can use them to work smarter.

This expertise and insight can save your dedicated staff hours; rather than researching for hours and attending costly conferences, they could just receive a presentation outlining all the exciting advancements in the marketplace.

IT Service Providers should be very incentivized to understand the most recent technology developments and demonstrate the value-add that they provide to your business and industry.

As the world edges towards artificial intelligence-driven business practices, an experienced and well-researched IT solution provider can help you plan for the future in what is available, realistic, economical, and achievable.

Although exciting, implementing AI practices that lower overhead and increase revenue is still quite far out and needs to be appropriately planned.

Technology Budget Development

Budget cycle development is necessary across all industries, but utilizing an IT service provider’s management, expertise, and guidance can alleviate some of the pressure.

Good management companies can support rollovers and plans for the future and help develop the cost estimates for these services.

Similarly, IT providers should be very familiar with SaaS (software as a service) applications alongside cloud computing platforms, which are typically extremely cost-effective, and be able to guide your business interests.

Data Security

Data security is more than an industry buzzword; it is essential to most industries. Every day thousands of commercial and consumer data are compromised through weak data safeguarding. This results in thousands of dollars being misappropriated every day.

This often results in companies having to apologize to consumers and clients publicly and having their poor data management exposed. These incidents shake consumer faith in companies and brands and cause extreme inconvenience to those whose data is compromised.

As cybersecurity practices continue to evolve and grow, allow an expert IT solution provider to guide you through implementing and upgrading good cybersecurity practices.

To attempt to implement an internal team to safeguard data is costly and time-consuming. Third-party solution providers are highly focused and experienced within this area and have to stay on top of new developments and advances to keep your data safe.

Similarly, IT solution providers can ensure that your business complies with all regulatory requirements regarding good data storage practices and that your staff is trained to spot malicious phishing emails and suspicious activity.

24/7 Support and Help Desk

In an increasingly globalized world, customers expect 24/7 support and 24/7 uptime. It is imperative to use a managed IT services provider, which can guarantee SLA-defined uptimes for your business.

Additionally, having a dedicated trouble ticket team and 24/7 helpdesk is an incredible resource – especially when things are not going to plan.

Once you implement an internal team, challenging issues can only be escalated so far; with managed IT services, they have layers of experts who can wade in and assist in closing trouble tickets.

Getting support has never been easier – just reach out and schedule a call to discuss your support needs with a friendly expert!
