Small businesses are often in a precarious position with technology management, struggling with budgeting and acquisition of new technology as well as the difficulties that come with hiring top talent. Thankfully, they have an ace up their sleeves that allows them to stay competitive: managed IT services. With a great managed service provider helming their technology strategies, small business owners have a lot less to worry about than they might otherwise… at least in terms of their technology, anyway.
What is a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?
At WheelHouse IT, we are all about helping small businesses and organizations like you get the technology maintenance needed to keep operations in check. Oftentimes we find that small businesses struggle with technology management and maintenance, so our entire business model revolves around shoring up these issues through proactive technology maintenance and management. We can offer several benefits to businesses that might not have the means to hire a full in-house team of technicians.
The Benefits of Partnering with an MSP
MSPs can offer businesses countless benefits, but there are some that stand above all others. We’ve outlined them below for your consideration.
If you want to hire a full team of in-house technicians, it’s going to be expensive. This is why small businesses often outsource this responsibility, as it allows them to get the best talent for the best price. MSP services are cheaper and easier to fit into your budget compared to the large costs associated with adding multiple new salaries. When you work with an MSP, you pay a monthly fee based on your service level agreement.
Most IT services can be administered remotely, meaning that they don’t necessitate an on-site visit from technicians. While running wires, installing hardware, and other hands-on tasks are impossible to handle remotely, you can be confident that most managed service providers can resolve the majority of tasks without the need for an on-site visit, effectively saving you both time and money.
Peace of Mind
The most undervalued benefit of working with a managed service provider is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your technology is managed and maintained by professional technicians. You can rest easy knowing that important patches and security updates are being applied as needed, allowing you to focus on running your organization and innovating with new solutions.
