Managed Service Providers (or MSPs) are recommended as a cost-effective IT solution for small and medium sized businesses. For a minimal monthly fee, MSPs provide a reasonably priced solution to the complex technology pains of businesses. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of a managed service provider:
Freed up resources and a renewed importance on core business — Both business owners and internal IT staff would much rather focus on revenue creating tasks like product development or the creation of cutting-edge applications/services. This is one reason routine monitoring and maintenance tasks are often neglected by an internal IT person or team, which always proves to be detrimental much later.
Often mis portrayed as a “threat” to an internal IT person or staff, MSPs can instead relieve internal staff of mundane network operations maintenance, repetitious monitoring of server and storage infrastructure, and day-to-day operations and help desk duties.
