The world is full of unexpected twists and turns. The Covid pandemic this year has shown everyone how quickly everyone’s world can be turned upside down. Uncertainty like this can be a nightmare for business owners everywhere. That’s why it’s good to plan for the unexpected with managed services.
What is Managed Services?
Managed services companies are like a mobile IT team with expertise across numerous areas. They can be a substitute for, or an addition to your current IT solution.
Managed service providers are often run by a team of people and you pay for the services on a subscription based business model. This means that you only pay for the services that you need.
Why Is this Better than IT?
The benefit that you get with managed services is the trust that there is a team there, not just 1 person in your IT department. This is what you want if things ever take an unexpected turn.
Managed services often provide 24 hour services and are able to tackle problems from a variety of angles. Can you be sure that your IT person will be reachable if you get a warning in the middle of the night?
Managed service providers are also able to help you find preemptive solutions so that you are prepared for whatever comes your way.
For example, they can help you create a disaster recovery plan for just about any situation. This way if you are attacked, have your information encrypted, or if an international pandemic halts business operations then you have a solution in place.’
They can also act quickly to find solutions to unexpected problems. This comes from having people from multiple backgrounds solving tech problems together. This wealth is group experience can help these teams find faster solutions than any one person would be able to do on their own.
A successful business will do their best to eliminate uncertainties. The less variables the better. Having a managed services provider on your team is the tool you need when the unexpected comes your way.
