Small Businesses Benefit
from Managed Services
The economy is showing signs of recovery, but many businesses continue to reel from the effects of the recession.
From start-ups to multi-billion dollar businesses, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs while turning a profit. But while many companies just try to keep things in the black, that does not eliminate the need for practices that will improve and grow these businesses.
Since few people have the expertise to manage much of today's technology, a certain percentage of their budgets should be allocated to Information Technology and software applications maintenance. Here we will cover how managed services can benefit small and medium businesses.
- Increased Productivity
Businesses are established to fill the need for a product or service while providing a livelihood for the business owners and their employees. In order to do this, businesses have to ensure they are working at full capacity at all times. Downtime or work performed at reduced levels is time and money wasted. Managed Services for small business networks can help businesses not only quickly repair problems when they occur but also act proactively to spot and treat potential problems before they have an impact on productivity. Managed Services can, in short, give a small business the support that a full-fledged IT Department gives to much larger businesses at a fraction of the cost.
- Supports In-house IT
Many businesses do not want to relinquish all IT maintenance control to an outside party, and small businesses do not always have the resources to support the type of IT department needed to keep their business running at full speed. A majority of small businesses can benefit from adding the expertise, tools and availability of a Managed Services Provider such to help support in-house IT departments.
- Remote Services
Managed Services Providers work from a remote location, providing network, desktop, email and backup and recovery support services without adding to the actual number of "employees" on site. The services provided are unobtrusive and in the majority of cases, have no impact on the day-to-day activities of current in-house employees. In fact, they allow employees to focus on their jobs rather than fiddling with computer issues.
Generally when you bring on a Managed Services Provider, a consultant will perform an onsite assessment of the company, its workflows and processes and the current state of its supporting technology to determine what services are needed to meet organizational goals. Business owners often have a choice between several different levels of service, making it possible for a company with a limited budget to choose a package that best suits their needs.
Security is a big concern for business owners and individuals alike. In the past, business owners have been reluctant to entrust secure or private information to a third party, offsite vendor. As Managed Services Providers continue to prove their value, more companies are realizing the benefits and value of their services. Managed Services Providers continue to improve technology to provide secure, quality services for businesses of all sizes.
As a result, smaller businesses which operate with leaner budgets find themselves in a position to reap the benefits of these services. Business owners often have to make difficult decisions regarding how they will improve their business while sticking to the budget. As the market for Managed Services experiences continual growth in the next few years, this method of IT maintenance and service delivery will likely become the norm for small- to mid-size businesses looking to reduce costs and improve uptime and business continuity. Companies that recognize the benefits of Managed Services will have a jump on their competition.
