Managed IT services are a great way for your business to save money, but what specifically do these types of services do to have such a profound impact on your budget? The impact stems from three primary causes: a reliable level of service, a proactive stance on maintenance and management, and access to professional technicians with decades of expertise.

We want to explore three ways your business can save money with managed IT.

Explaining a Service Level Agreement (SLA)

When you work with a managed service provider, you accept that provider’s service level agreement. This service level agreement will basically cover the extent of the service you can expect from your managed service provider, and it’s important to know what products, services, and support you can expect throughout this arrangement. You’ll pay a convenient fee that you can budget into your spending, and that number will not budge from what you expect. It makes paying for IT, which is known to be somewhat unpredictable, much easier.

Proactive IT is Better for Business

One of the largest costs of IT is when you suffer from unexpected hardware failure that is completely unaccounted for. Replacing technology when it breaks down is twice as expensive as taking care to ensure it doesn’t break down in the first place. The reason for this is simple: you’re paying for the downtime, the salaries of individuals who might be working at the time, and the replacement technology. It’s all stuff that can be prevented with a little proactive maintenance and monitoring to ensure that systems don’t get so far gone in the first place.

The Power of Affordable Expertise

Getting a full-time IT technician on a company salary is not easy, particularly if you’re looking for specific skill sets and qualifications. Rather than focus your efforts on the limited local talent pool, you can work with a managed service provider who offers a plethora of expertise without the job posting and interviewing. You get a lot of value out of working with an MSP, no two ways about it.

Managed Services are a Valuable Investment

If you want to make IT more of a predictable expense for your business, then working with NetMGM will pay off in spades. Your organization can streamline IT expenses while addressing specific issues you might have with your business. Find out more by calling us at 888-748-2525.
