In today's day and age, outsourcing certain IT services--like print management, document management, cloud backup, and even network management--is becoming all the rage. Some companies, though, still aren't sure. How can you find someone trustworthy enough to handle something so important? What if you still want to keep some control? Today we'll answer all these questions, and more so you can feel confident choosing managed IT services.
A Great Team
The most important thing to remember about any managed service--but especially managed IT--is that you're not just hiring some stranger to do your work for you. Instead, by outsourcing, you are essentially choosing a teammate--a partner who will work with you to learn your company, your needs, and your goals to offer the most reliable service. A good provider will listen, answer your questions, and always take your opinion into account, so you never have to get out of the driver's seat (unless you want to, of course). On top of that, managed IT solutions often implement data-tracking tools and services, so you'll always be able to make the most informed decisions about your tech.
Now that you know what managed IT is all about, it's time to answer your questions about actually making this big choice.
#1: "Is it worth it?"
The simple answer is yes. Outsourcing your IT is cost-effective, secure, and efficient, and it helps take the load off you and your employees, so you never have to worry about having access to reliable tech.
#2: "Is it reliable?"
One of the great things about managed IT services is that you'll be in contact with experts who can answer questions and solve problems 24/7, every day of the year. You'll never be left on your own.
#3: "How does it work?"
Your managed IT provider will come in to learn about your business and your needs, and then begin offering suggestions and solutions based on your habits, challenges, and goals. From there, it's up to you what direction you want to take the service and benefits.
