Operational Efficiency

Most small businesses incur high amounts of operational costs, especially during lean periods, with minuscule return on investments. Outsourcing IT tasks to managed services team members can free your staff to focus on revenue-generating tasks.

These IT professionals can also often provide guidance or recommendations to help you optimize the performance of your infrastructure. This can lead to increases in productivity and improved ROI.

Access to Skills & Knowledge

MSPs can provide the guidance and support needed to optimize your IT efforts and enable in-house IT to focus on higher level tasks. For example, maintaining your infrastructure may take a significant amount of time but doesn’t require specific expertise. MSPs can handle standard updates for you while you focus on custom integrations or configurations.

Companies benefit from augmenting their internal IT staff by leveraging the expertise and knowledge of MSPs, which provide guidance and instruction to those staff members, in turn helps increase their experience and productivity in their organization.

Boosts Productivity

Having additional IT support benefits your staff by taking care of specific critical needs or company-wide infrastructure management and maintenance. MSPs enable you to focus your efforts on revenue generating opportunities, and your IT staff on other growing infrastructure needs.

Additionally, since services are proactive, providers can help you avoid downtime and help you optimize your resources for better performance and availability.

By being an extension of my team, it allows me to focus on more critical issues that may come up. Grid4 provides the support that helps us maintain an efficient network.

Cost Effective

Managed services enable you to set contractual terms for IT tasks that include service level agreements (SLAs). This means you don’t have to spend time recruiting, hiring, or training IT staff. This enables you to pay only for the coverage or services you need and avoids the associated costs that come with maintaining full-time employees.

Greater Security Expertise

Managed service providers provide greater security expertise and coverage than you can provide in-house. This may include 24/7 monitoring, access to enterprise grade solutions, or development of threat intelligence. 

When it comes to cyber threats, MSPs can increase security if you are in the process of migrating resources to the cloud or integrating cloud services. Having an external IT expert that’s focused on security protocols often provides insight into security configurations and network controls that you may not be aware of.
