Benefits of managed services

Stop for a moment and imagine a world where your systems are all running smoothly. Where regular preventative maintenance and pro-active diagnosis of your network means you’re never waiting for an engineer to arrive. Where your employees can access the technology they need, when and where they want to, with no frustrating glitches or buffering getting in the way.

Stop imagining, this is the reality with managed services.

It’s no secret that companies need to continuously find ways to secure and protect their data and IT infrastructure. Competition, client demand and regulatory bodies all account for the growing pressure to stay one step ahead, but finding a service that also adheres to strict regulation and compliance procedures can sometimes seem expensive and complex. 

State of the art technology and complex infrastructures are much easier when you have large IT teams and budget available, but what about the smaller organisations who are also looking to keep pace with the latest tech developments?

For many, a managed service provider holds the answer, and provides a simple way to harness the power of technology without the associated costs. This Guide will explain the benefits of a managed service for companies, and how the delivery of managed IT can help you improve operations, trim back costs and keep the edge on your competition.

Cost saving Section

Cost saving

Everyone wants to save money, although let’s face it which supplier is going to tell you their service is going to cost more money! However a Managed Service Provider can save you money by reviewing what you are currently doing and recommending new cost effective solutions that you may not have considered. With the constant monitoring of your network it is easier to maintain and fix things before they cause major problems.

Predictable spending Section

Predictable spending

Nobody likes an unexpected bill when something has broken and needs fixing and the great thing about managed services is that you can keep costs predictable. In contrast to the older break/fix model, managed services help you to forecast and manage your IT spend. A set monthly cost gives you all the technical support and expertise you need without hidden charges.

Faster response times Section

Faster response times

Rather than waiting putting in a support call and then waiting for a technician to visit and assess the situation, through enterprise class monitoring and remote management systems, a MSP has the ability to access and repair most network problems from their Network Operations Centre (NOC). If it can’t be fixed from the NOC a technician would be dispatched to your workplace on the same day.

Where problems arise with other software or ERP systems it can often be time consuming and confusing needing to deal with it. An MSP is trained in ‘geek-speak’ and can help you deal with 3rd vendors to quickly get to the problem.

Peace of mind against cyber crime

Every business is aware that cyber-crime is a huge threat, however staying on top of the latest threats is a full time job. Whilst the multinationals can protect themselves by employing a team of techs, the average SME is a slightly more vulnerable. This is where managed services will keep you secure, whether it’s hosting your infrastructure within a private cloud, installing the latest cyber protection at your workplace or keeping everything patched and updated
