8 Reasons to Move to an IT Managed Services Provider

November 17, 2021

Are your critical IT operations dependent on one or two resources? Is the thought of losing these key people worrying you? Maybe it’s time to think about moving to a Managed Services Provider (MSP). An MSP can shift your IT services from reactive to proactive by having experts at your fingertips to solve your IT problems. Some of the reasons to move to an MSP are listed below:

  1. Cost – provides a predictable monthly and yearly fee enabling your organization to move from a capital expense model to an operating expense model. MSPs allow you to hire an entire team of IT professionals at a flat monthly rate.
  2. Create internal/operational efficiencies – no need to hire and train or retain IT staff. Your HR department can focus on recruiting and training employees for your core business.
  3. Improve IT security – with new security attacks happening daily and system patches to prevent or minimize those attacks required regularly; it is nearly impossible for a small team to keep up. MSPs provide a CISO and IT security staff to stay abreast of current changes and plan to minimize exposure if a security attack occurs.
  4. Handle remote IT office – many companies find that their systems are not as secure nor portable as they initially thought. Companies were forced to move to remote work without long-term plans to address security, disaster recovery, and system back-ups.
  5. Gain access to new technologies – most organizations cannot keep pace with implementing new technologies, nor do they have the money to invest in them. MSPs bring experience and have software and hardware vendor partnerships to learn and apply new technology quickly.
  6. Avoid downtime – MSPs use 24/7/365 remote monitoring and management to identify, diagnose, and troubleshoot potential problems before they become an issue. 
  7. Improve business agility – ability to quickly scale up and down to meet your organization’s needs as it evolves.
  8. Level the playing field – get support and expertise like large companies without the cost required to maintain an entire IT organization.

Although the move from in-sourcing IT to an MSP can cause some worry, the benefits gained will outweigh the risks. If you are unsure where to start, Dewpoint suggests a quick conversation with one of our experts to review your issues and concerns. Contact us today to learn more.
