Ready to unlock the benefits of using an MSP?

The last seven benefits of using an MSP for proactive IT management are all about that safe and fuzzy feeling one gets when a business runs smoothly. Technology is central to the success of every department within a company. Nothing runs efficiently or without significant influence from technology. 

Technology moves quickly, and keeping up with all the changes, additions, improvements, advances, and new versions requires systematic and thorough planning. MSPs operate in the background to maintain, assess, and secure your business. From IT support to security, system administration, and management – MSPs can do it all

This guide is the last article in a 3-part series describing the benefits of using an MSP for proactive IT management.

Key Takeaways:

The last 7 benefits of using an MSP

  1. Access to the latest software and hardware without the upfront cost
  2. Improved communication and collaboration through technology solutions
  3. Increased uptime and availability of IT systems
  4. Peace of mind knowing your IT systems are in capable hands
  5. Consistent monitoring and reporting on IT system performance and health
  6. Reduced risk of equipment failure and data loss
  7. Increased competitive advantage through advanced technology solutions

1. Access to the latest software and hardware

MSP-enabled businesses are not using old technology duct-taped together and patched into newer application systems. Imagine the nightmare of having to manage and ensure the system is secure and functional with hundreds of integrated applications all tapped into a network operating on decade-old or greater technology.

MSPs work with different vendors to access the latest and newest emerging technology. New technology is not “everything,” but it is more secure, and offers greater advantages for business process automation  leading to higher revenues. Additionally, MSPs provide new technology without an upfront cost. Businesses can benefit from the advantages of new technology without having to invest significant amounts of budget. It’s all included in an MSPs pricing plan.

2. Improved communication and collaboration

MSP technology solutions can help improve communication and collaboration within a business. Online chat, messaging, and email systems enable fast and effective communication. Add to that team dashboards and work task tracking software, and you’ve got the tools to communicate effectively across roles and teams.

MSP solutions offer access to technology to automate manual workflows to improve efficiency and reduce overall costs. Efficient processes within teams open the possibility of clear communication and effective work collaboration. 

3. Increased uptime and availability of IT systems

MSPs have the expertise and experience to handle system security and disaster management. Security management is a multi-headed monster with tentacles in data security, access, authentication, and threat prevention. Someone is likely trying to hack into every server they can find. Eventually, they may succeed. MSPs can secure IT networks, devices, and systems to eliminate downtime and increase uptime.

If a threat succeeds, your MSP protects the system with appropriate and timely disaster response plans. Plus, most MSPs offer 24/7 coverage in many pricing plans. 24/7 coverage means someone is on duty and ready to assist in any emergency. The less the systems are down, the more productive employees are.

4. Peace of mind knowing your IT systems are in good hands

Securing systems, devices, and data is critical to the success of the business and the protection of user and customer data. Keep your business moving forward securely by leveraging the security expertise within an MSP.

MSPs provide cyber hygiene, and other security and maintenance procedures for you. No need to schedule or find security specialists on your own - simply leverage the MSP services that provide continuous upgrades, maintenance, and security procedures to protect the system entirely. In addition to regularly performing routine maintenance and updates, MSPs can enforce continuous security monitoring to ensure your system is always protected.

MSPs provide the tools and expertise necessary to maintain an organization's security posture at the highest level.

5. Consistent monitoring and reporting on IT system performance and health

Security threats change and evolve daily. MSPs have the expertise and the resources to respond to any new threat. Using consistent monitoring, MSPs can track everything within the network and fix issues immediately.

MSPs also keep up with the latest security technology and methods. Businesses can never fully relax on security, but using an MSP provides reliable consistency and comfort, knowing the network is covered.

6. Reduced risk of equipment failure and data loss

Proactive IT management means keeping software and hardware always up to date. With up-to-date software and hardware systems, a company’s equipment and data failure risk are less. Businesses can benefit from existing technology expertise within an MSP to keep processes and systems up and running.

There is no need to worry if the next version will break something in the network. The MSP will handle any fixes immediately. The system runs smoother and less interrupted, with MSP performing network management.

7. Increased competitive advantage through advanced technology solutions

Using an external IT provider or MSP enables businesses to use the latest technology without significantly investing time or money. Companies can get ahead of their competition by leveraging the value and quality an MSP-managed system provides.

MSPs keep up with the latest IT technology. A quality MSP can review a business’s system and processes and determine areas where new software or hardware helps to improve performance and productivity. MSPs enable you to move your business ahead of the competition with the ability to make rapid adjustments as needed and increase your business ability.

MSPs are cost-effective for many companies, which means staying in business. An MSP helps other companies to transform gracefully and successfully into the digital world.

MSPs provide proactive IT solutions effectively and efficiently. MSP monitoring and management keep systems secure and operating at high-performance levels. It also helps keep systems running with less downtime by managing upgrades and installs. MSPs have employees with a wide range of technical expertise and skills. Leverage an MSP’s abilities to remain competitive and rise to the top. Make your business more successful by using an MSP.
