MSPs Face Many of the Same Problems Your Business Faces

The average business relies on several technology solutions that make maintaining a network infrastructure more challenging. Eventually, it gets to the point where technology becomes difficult to maintain without the help of an on-site IT department. Unfortunately, small businesses often have trouble supporting their infrastructures, as they don’t have the funds to hire and maintain an internal IT department. What’s the best way for a smaller organization to keep their technology in working order?

Managed IT maintenance is the ideal solution for small organizations for several reasons. For one, it’s simply more efficient and less reactive than a break-fix IT provider. Instead of only resolving problems when they happen, you can instead prevent them all together, before they cause a lot of frustrations and downtime. Here are some ways that managed IT can help your business effectively care for technology.

Improving Flexibility
If you hire more employees, this means that you have more users to provide software to. If you’re not careful, this can lead to unexpected costs associated with software licensing and other accounts. This also leads to having more devices to secure and more employees accessing your network. The idea here is that the more technology you have in your infrastructure, the more work you have on your hands. 4IT can help your business ensure flexibility no matter how many employees or services your organization needs.

Assisting with In-House Maintenance
Assuming you have an IT department on-hand for your small business, it’s likely a small group of IT technicians whose sole responsibility is either general upkeep or implementing new solutions. However, their workload is likely to be too much for both--it’s generally only one or the other. Outsourcing your technology maintenance and management can be a great way to make sure that all responsibilities are fulfilled, regardless of the workload. For example, we could act as a help desk while your in-house team manages a critical project, or vice-versa. This helps to create success in the workplace regardless of how much work has piled up.

Managing Your Vendors
There are several vendors that you work with to find products to suit your business, and all of these products require some sort of service at some point. For example, you might need to reach out to your vendors in order to procure new hardware or software for your business. It can be costly, time-consuming, and frustrating to constantly reach out to your vendors, which is why 4IT offers vendor management. We take multiple points of contact and consolidate it into one, making it simple and easy for you to reach out for assistance.

Generally Improving Operational Efficiency
A managed service provider can improve the way that your business functions on multiple levels. There’s something to be said about having hands-off IT maintenance to keep your business running as smoothly as possible. We firmly believe that you should remain focused on running your business instead of running your technology, so why not let us take the responsibility off your shoulders?
