Cyberattacks. Server failures. System errors. Outdated hardware and software tools.
When one of these problems happens, you might not be able to handle them yourself. In your panic, you seek help from your nearest available IT guy, even without vetting him, and cross your fingers you picked the right person to save your business.
If only you had a trusted managed service provider (MSP) at your disposal.
You might already be considering it but you’re still unsure if you want to get one. Is it really necessary to have an IT service provider all the time?
Here are the main reasons why you need to have 24/7 IT support for your business:
No matter what business you are in—healthcare, legal, or finance—IT problems can cost you a lot.
Best-case scenario: Your productivity and efficiency take a major hit and cripple your business processes.
Worst-case scenario: Your business closes for a while or, god forbid, for good!
By partnering with a trusted local MSP, you can contact IT experts anytime to rescue your business even if you are on vacation or at an out-of-office appointment. With dedicated IT support right at your fingertips, there is no reason to panic and you can go on with your day.
You might think that having full-time in-house IT staff is the smart way to go:
1. You can personally coordinate with them right then and there.
2. You feel at peace when they’re monitoring your devices and networks on the spot.
However, hiring all this manpower and setting up an entire team can be costly; and, let’s face it, problems that require physical IT presence don’t occur all the time.
With an MSP, however, you only have to pay a fraction of the cost since they typically just charge you a flat monthly rate. Their staff also caters to the IT needs of other business entities and stays sharp. When needed, MSPs can afford to have personnel ready to jump in and help you right away.
Now you can save on expenses and funnel your resources to your core business.
Long-term Sustainable Collaboration
You might be doubtful at first if you want to partner with an MSP until the first big threat occurs.
Whatever stage your business is currently in, collaborating with a reliable IT service provider can help you anticipate threats 24/7 and protect your business.
Avoid business flow disruptions and demonstrate your commitment to provide great service to your clients. Have the peace of mind that you deserve.
Be secure and get 24/7 IT support.
