For small to midsize businesses, budget-consciousness is imperative. Even though you need to keep up with the latest technological developments in your industry, you also need to make sure your tech resources remain cost-effective. IT companies in Sussex can provide your business with managed IT services at a consistent flat rate, providing you with an impressive range of services at prices that keep your operation financially competitive.
A 2015 study from CompTIA, a nonprofit research outfit, revealed the growing trend of outsourcing IT needs with managed service providers. They also found that organizations with less than 100 employees were more than twice as likely to use outside IT companies. This study also looked into what reservations companies had about managed IT services. Interestingly, they found that 32% of businesses with over 100 employees, and 38% of businesses with fewer than 100 employees, were worried that the cost savings wouldn’t be worth it.
Believe it or not, managed IT services can save your company quite a bit of money. Here are four of the major ways that managed IT service reduces your overhead and general expenses.
1) Strong, reliable network security.
There are a lot of malicious parties out there who want to steal your data. Data is a hot commodity, allowing hackers to perform identity theft, hold you hostage with ransomware, and otherwise commit criminal activities. A security breach could be absolutely disastrous for your business. Managed IT services hire top talent and implement high quality infrastructure, with excellent security measures to keep your data safe.
2) Reduce the need for office space with cloud-based collaboration.
Quite a few professions can be performed remotely, from copywriting to web development. With so many excellent collaboration tools out there for communication and project management, there’s often little reason that employees really need to constantly be in the same office together. Managed IT services can provide your staff with excellent communication and file sharing tools, making it easy for teams to work together even if they’re half a world away. When staff can work remotely, it removes the need for costly office spaces that house everyone on your team. For smaller businesses, this can lead to substantial savings.
3) Control your budget easily.
Managed IT services are billed at a flat monthly rate, and as your business grows, you can upgrade your service package as needed. This removes unexpected expenses due to server failure or software bugs that could be a major blow to your business’s financials. The monthly cost is stable and predictable, making it easier than ever to manage and control your budget effectively.
4) Reduce the need for full-time IT staff.
Managed IT companies hire the best of the best for all their various IT, engineering, and programming roles. By outsourcing some or all of your technological needs, you can reduce the need for costly full-time employees to take care of IT needs.
