In today’s world, companies need to keep up with technological innovations to future-proof their business and ensure a competitive advantage.
Hiring an in-house IT team may not be an option for small to medium sized businesses that don’t have the financial resources to do so. Putting together a team of people that have the technical expertise in areas like network management, cloud services, cybersecurity, data backup, and disaster recovery can be very expensive and stressful.
Outsourcing your IT needs to an MSP (Managed Service Provider) is the best option in this case. Working with an MSP will guarantee you have the latest technology, IT experts monitoring your devices, and scalability as your business grows.
When you partner with an MSP, you get access to an always available friendly team of engineers who can talk you through any tech issues you may be having. Your business must remain online no matter what, and you need a solution to take care of any internet outages, data loss, and security breaches that could potentially interfere with your day-to-day operations.
You‘ll get access to the latest hardware and software solutions and the people that know how to manage them. At Shartega IT, we provide our clients with an IT Roadmap that informs you when your old devices are reaching end-of-support and need to be upgraded. We will also recommend any improvements and new solutions that we think should be implemented.
Design the Right Solution
An MSP will analyze your needs to design, install, and support the correct IT solution for your business and its future. You will also receive remote proactive monitoring of your network and be notified of any major issues as soon as they happen in real time. Software updates and deployment of new programs is also automated, not requiring any special actions by the end users.
Get More For Your Investment
One of the most obvious benefits of having managed IT is the predictable lower cost. For the same cost per year of hiring one employee, an MSP will provide you with a complete team of knowledgeable IT experts.
Security Can Be Overwhelming
Cybersecurity is rapidly becoming the biggest threat to a business. Traditional crimes like stealing inventory seem much less important compared to the theft of all your customers’ data in the modern world. Small businesses tend to be the biggest targets for cybercrime because they do not have the adequate security strategies in place that larger companies can afford. Your IT service provider can tell you where your network’s weaknesses lie and suggest changes to improve it.
