When you start looking at how organizations conduct business, you quickly notice the role IT plays. To this end, it is essential that all of the technology used by your organization is consistently maintained. To ensure the reliability of this technology choosing a partner that can make that happen is important. This month, we will go through the things that make managed services such a valuable service. 

What Do You Get with Managed Services?

Managed IT services, created specifically to remotely manage your organization’s technology, can achieve this by either completely running the IT management of a business or by supplementing the IT management resources you already have in place. Here is a list of IT-related services that a competent managed IT service provider in Chicago can deliver:

  • Support services
  • Hardware and software procurement
  • Network administration and maintenance
  • Backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity
  • Cybersecurity
  • Cloud computing and related services
  • Communications
  • Compliance needs

On top of managing these parts of your business’ IT, there are several other beneficial services that a capable MSP like Reciprocal Technologies will deliver. Give us a call to learn which are right for your needs.

How Can Managed Services Help an SMB?

Here are three ways that an MSP can directly help your small or mid-sized business:

Managed Services Provides the Ability to Focus

When you are constantly dealing with technology issues (and let’s face it, if you don’t have sufficient IT coverage, it’s very possible that you are) you might find that attaining your organizational goals is a major challenge. By working with an MSP, you not only eliminate your need to focus on the technology, it redirects organizational focus to the revenue generating tasks that make a business run. 

Managed Services Allows for Cost Reduction 

One of the biggest benefits that an MSP provides is the ability to redirect costs. Not only are there predictable IT support costs with an MSP handling the heavy lifting, you also can focus your money on IT projects that can improve revenue generation, or simply reallocate them completely. The financial flexibility that managed IT provides can really be a big benefit. 

Managed Services Provides Access to Expertise

The MSP hires trained and experienced IT technicians; and, because of the business model, typically has technicians that work with different types of businesses. This gives them the experience needed to not only do their job better, but also provide the perspectives needed to improve your operational efficiency, your overall productivity profile, your IT security outlook, and your employee training strategy.
