Far too many times, companies call us after losing an IT staff member, frazzled and understaffed, with the demand for fire-fighting support becomes mission critical. This causes an imbalance in the technical team, as the work level has increased but the amount of help hasn’t. Managed IT Services provides businesses with the ability to delegate IT operations in a co-managed environment or off-load all your day-to-day work and refocus your IT team on advancing your business.
Managed IT Services is provided by an expert third-party organization that augments and tests your business network for such things as connectivity, efficiency, workflows, vulnerabilities, and much more. Sometimes organizations lack the manpower or lack the internal specialization for proper management and remediation of your network, servers, desktops, and other IT devices. These third-party organizations are commonly called Managed Service Providers (MSP) who can shift their focus to portions or the entirety of your business technology. Managing a Managed Service Provider by a written Service Level Agreement (SLA), well-versed companies offer ticket system access, reporting, and documentation of your network.
MSPs CAN’T be born overnight
Commonly, businesses choose to leverage the assistance of a poor-performing partner due to the overwhelming amount of smoke and mirrors. Do your homework: if the MSP you consider using doesn’t hold a comprehensive on-boarding process or checks and balances to assist in budgeting and strategizing around the specific needs of your business, it may not be the ideal partner. We build strategic partnerships with our clients to better align us to meet their mission.
