How a Managed IT Provider Can Support Your Internal IT Team
If you have an IT team in-house, it might seem a little redundant to hire a Managed IT Services provider. Often the perception is that it means handing over control of your internal IT department. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Partnering with Managed IT provider can offer big benefits. In fact, your IT team can work in tandem with your provider to grow your business. A Managed IT Services provider can plug holes in your existing IT infrastructure. They can assume responsibility for more mundane daily tasks freeing your in-house team’s time to focus on mission-critical items.
Managed IT can be scaled up (or down) as your business needs change. When your business partners with a Managed Services provider, you benefit in terms of security, operations, and data management providing you with peace of mind!
Here are just a few ways a Managed IT Services provider can support your in-house IT team.
- Automate Repetitive Tasks – Your IT team has multiple repetitive tasks to deal with every day. Repetitive tasks take time away from critical business and can increase the risk of human error. Your IT provider can automate repetitive tasks, freeing your team to focus on strategic and productive efforts.
- Help Provide Infrastructure – Hosting your own IT infrastructure is complex and expensive. A Managed IT provider can function as a valuable consultant hosting your IT infrastructure on your behalf. You would still control your systems, but your provider can host and maintain them.
- Round The Clock Tech Support – Imagine if your network goes down in the middle of the night and there’s no one from your IT team around to deal with it. With IT provider you can relax, you’re covered! A Managed IT partner can monitor your network 24/7/365 so that any issues are proactively addressed before they become a problem.
- Cut Costs – Outsourcing a part of your IT needs is more cost-effective compared to hiring a new employee. Not only is skilled IT help difficult to find, it may also take more than one new hire to find the skills your business needs. When you engage a Managed IT Services provider you can easily scale your IT team as your needs change, and have access to a knowledgeable team of IT experts.
