5 Reasons Why You Need a Managed IT Services Provider

Sponsored Content provided by Madison Howard - Marketing Team Leader, Systel Business Equipment

  1. Limited IT Staff: 

IT staff in businesses everywhere are stretched thin as they work to keep up with demands of the modern workforce. With the increasing popularity of hybrid and remote work environments, your in-house IT staff likely dedicates most of their time towards resolving technology issues. While an IT department is tasked with many important duties, such as security, maintaining business operations and making sure information is readily accessible and accurate, other areas of IT, such as proper documentation of important procedures and events within your business network, tend to be overlooked when the department is understaffed. Managed IT Services will help to alleviate these challenges and ensure that your IT environment is fully covered with reliable support. 


  1. Increased Downtime:

Technology is always changing, and with change, there will undoubtedly be issues to work through. Without proper management and maintenance, frequent technology failures can lead to downtime within your organization and affect productivity. While downtime can be hard to predict, organizations can take action to monitor and prevent technology issues before they occur with Managed IT Services. In addition to eliminating downtime, Managed IT Services creates a more reliable work environment with improved productivity.


  1. Business Continuity:

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that you can never be too prepared when it comes to having a business continuity plan. For any business, conducting routine data backups is paramount to ensuring that all data is securely stored in the event that a natural disaster or cyberattack occurs. Keeping your technology up to date is a vital component of reducing downtime and recovery time, ultimately saving time and money when you need it most, especially in the event of an emergency.


  1. Security:

Now more than ever, safeguarding your business network should be a top priority for every organization. It is imperative that employees have the ability to securely connect from their home network without the risk of stolen data, and with the current influx of hybrid and remote work environments, IT Departments everywhere are overwhelmed with constant updates, patch management, and troubleshooting tasks. Managed IT can alleviate the stress of these mundane tasks so your IT Department can focus more of their efforts on areas that require their attention. 


  1. Investment:

Managed IT Services provides easy access to skilled experts who monitor, assess, manage your network, and more for a fraction of the costs required to recruit and train additional IT staff internally. The cost for these services are calculated based on the actual usage needs of your business and saves you from having to pay for any infrastructure and hardware that you aren’t using. Your organization can continue to operate effectively and efficiently with reduced labor costs and stress on your IT Department, a predictable monthly expense, and lower maintenance costs are just a few of the benefits you can receive with a Managed IT Services provider.
