A Managed Service Provider, or MSP, provides IT monitoring and maintenance services for a business. There are many benefits to using an MSP while supplementing an in-house IT solution or replacing it all together. Here are four areas that a managed service provider can help support the growing needs of your company.
USING A PROACTIVE VS. REACTIVE IT APPROACH
Typically, organizations that do not use an MSP follow a break/fix model for their IT needs. This can usually lead to unexpected server downtime, security breaches, or all-out system failures.
MSPs use a much more proactive approach to IT planning and development by thoroughly examining the needs of an organization from the very beginning and deploying a slew of tools and services to manage the business effectively.
BETTER OVERALL COSTS
An MSP manages your company’s IT needs 24/7 365 days a year, significantly reducing downtime and service interruptions that are usually experienced when using a break/fix model. This allows your company to increase productivity and overall output.
DEDICATED SUPPORT THAT NEVER SLEEPS
Outages and cyber attacks can happen at any time of day. That’s why it’s important that you have security measures in place to counter any potential system issues. With software that monitors systems 24 hours a day, managed service providers give companies the peace of mind they need to operate at full efficiency.
EFFECTIVE DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING
In the case of catastrophic events or large system outages, MSPs can assist your company with the preparation and execution of a disaster recovery plan, recovering any lost data and getting your systems back up and running with minimal downtime.
