Why move to managed services?

May 30, 2023

Firstly, lets discuss what managed services are….

In order for businesses to run efficiently, effectively and to stand out from the competition within their field technology is essential.

Businesses rely on networks and IT more than ever and the costs to upkeep an internal IT team keep rising, not to mention the HR requirements needed.

Small businesses can often struggle with their network maintenance and systems due to limited resources and infrastructure.

Managed services are a way to outsource your IT support to experts.

A top of the line MSP (managed services provider) will provide a range of services for your business:

•  IT support

•  IT security

•  Network Administration

•  Data Backups

•  Restoration testing and more.

Managed IT services give your business the support and assurance that your network is being looked after and that you have someone to turn to for all your IT support queries.

Managed Services Benefits

•  Minimised Downtime

•  Proactive Solutions

Managed Services VS Break-Fix Services

Managed services are progressively becoming the norm certainly for smaller and medium sized businesses.

In the past Break-Fix services dominated the market. Businesses would encounter a problem and then get in touch with an IT expert to help them.

Depending on the problem this could become a gamble, if an issue could be resolved quickly then the costs could be low but if an extensive problem arose the break-fix support could soon become very expensive.

Managed services however provide:

•  a proactive solution

•  a predictable cost for your business

•  consistent device monitoring

•  security solutions.

Managed services by nature prevent the likelihood of major faults and failures.

Imagine having a vehicle that you use day in day out and you never maintain that vehicle because you don’t know how to or haven’t got the time to and then one day that vehicle breaks down. This could be at the most inconvenient time and the cost of repairs could be staggering because the vehicle hasn’t been properly looked after. If the vehicle had been serviced regularly by a trusted expert then the likelihood of having a major issue arise would be close to nil.

This is essentially the key difference between Managed Services and Break-Fix Services.
