What Are Managed IT Services?
When a company chooses to use managed IT services, they are choosing to outsource the management and maintenance of their IT infrastructure and network security to a third-party company. Managed IT helps to take the pressure off of business owners by providing technical support, cybersecurity, network monitoring, hardware upgrades, software updates, and data storage solutions.
Managed IT Service Providers, or MSP’s, are service companies that allow businesses to delegate their burden of managing technical aspects such as servers, networks, cloud computing infrastructure, and other hardware. This allows them the freedom from handling cumbersome tasks like maintaining a large number of computers that are running out-dated software programs. Managed service providers (MSPs) have experts in all areas including programming languages or security measures who can handle these without any difficulties for your business.
Managed IT Services provide companies with more time, so they don’t constantly need to worry about changes in technology or infrastructure management. If MSP’s take on maintenance responsibilities, this leaves management free to focus solely on company operations rather than fixing tech issues.
Why Do Businesses Need MSP’s?
Whereas most businesses have someone coming in and fixing the problem if it is indeed broken, an effective MSP takes a proactive IT approach and helps businesses prevent and prepare for problems BEFORE they happen. In addition, the right MSP:
- Reduces downtime and improves recovery speed, resulting in stronger brand reputation and increased customer satisfaction
- Saves a business money on IT costs
- Frees up IT resources
- Improves a business’s security
How Businesses Benefit From Managed IT
Managed IT services can help businesses experience fewer instances of unexpected downtime, improved overall cybersecurity, increased staff productivity, and the ability to better focus on customer service and company growth.
Additionally, businesses can trust that an experienced provider will offer remote technical support to help solve any persisting issue. For those recurring IT problems that seemingly won’t go away, managed services providers can dispatch a technician to your location for on-site support.
A managed services provider can help save businesses money by helping them avoid the need to hire in-house IT staff or minimize the workload of existing attentive team members.
Typically, these services are billed as a flat-rate monthly fee or based on the number of computers or users your business has. Because of this, your monthly IT bill is predictable, which means budgeting is easier and you can plan to use your funds for other projects.
How Much Should a Business Expect to Pay for Managed IT Services?
Just as each business’s IT needs are unique, so are the pricing models for every MSP. Ultimately it is up to the business to decide which pricing model makes the most sense for the relevant services they require, but the following models are the most common among most MSP’s:
- Monitoring Only – This model covers network monitoring, alert services, and essential care; basically predictable services
- Per Device – A flat fee would be charged for each type of device supported, per month
- Per User – Same as Per Device, except the flat fee would be charged per user, per month. Also, this model would cover all the end user’s devices
- Tiered – This model offers different tiers of bundled packages of services. With this option, the pricing increases from tier to tier as more comprehensive services are provided
- “All You Can Eat” – One flat fee covers on-site and remote support. On this model, the business can budget the IT support costs and avoid billing fluctuations
- A La Carte – This model’s pricing is based on distinct services that focus on the business’s specific needs, offering greater flexibility
How to Find The Right MSP For You
When looking for a managed IT services provider, it’s important to keep in mind that they need experience and knowledge. The more of both these things they have under their belts- the better!
A good MSP will also know exactly what industry you’re working with, so make sure there are experts specifically tasked towards providing solutions tailored just for businesses like yours – which could save time on implementation or troubleshooting when something goes wrong.
Working with an MSP will likely be a long-term partnership, so you should seek out one that is transparent and trustworthy. Find service tiers they offer as well as how much per month it costs for each tier to ensure your budget can handle any growth needs in the future.
The best managed services providers are responsive whenever needed by small businesses like yours; this way there’s no need to spend time waiting around at 8am when everything crashes!
