5 Benefits of Outsourcing IT Managed Services

 

In an ever-growing world of technology it can become overwhelming trying to keep up with the changes and risks involved with “doing it yourself”. That is why more businesses and organizations are outsourcing all or a portion of their IT department to a Managed Services provider like Atiba. Below are 5 benefits that can immediately be gained through outsourcing your IT through Managed Services.

  1. Controlling Costs

Outsourcing allows you to budget effectively by only paying for what you use when you need it. Also, a full-time IT staff may not have “enough work” to justify their compensation. Outsourcing Managed Services allows you to focus your resources where you need them most.

  1. Reduce Risk

No matter the business, there is sensitive data and information that needs to be protected. Are you positive that your current firewall, servers and security measures are up to date and doing their assigned tasks? A Managed Services company who is familiar with the requirements and standards needed to stay compliant will allow you to minimize the risk associated with maintaining sensitive information.

  1. Experienced and Qualified

If the HR department is hiring the IT staff, how do they know they have the experience truly needed to meet the needs of the organization? Would you go to a doctor if you were their only patient, or would you want one that has seen and diagnosed many issues before? The same is for your IT department. Trust the experts that are seeing more “patients”.

  1. Higher Efficiency

Organizations that use the DIY approach can have much higher costs and longer time frames for implementation and fixes. This will filter down to their customers. A highly skilled Managed Services team can implement new technology and forecast issues prior to them happening. This eliminates downtime and loss of production. It also allows the organization to focus on their core business rather than IT decisions that may or may not be correct or needed at all.

  1. Level the Playing Field

Having a Managed Services partner will allow your organization to have access to similar technology and expertise that typically only larger corporations have. This allows you to grow and scale at the pace you want without worrying about your IT keeping up. It is also closely related to the first benefit I listed regarding controlling costs.

 

Each one of these benefits can be used to create a much larger list of reasons to outsource your IT, but this should give you enough information to start the conversation within your organization. It can help determine what is best for you and your business. Headquartered in Nashville, TN, Atiba uses a Half Geek, Half Human approach to offer Managed Services to the entire US. This includes recent expansions to offer additional IT support and Managed Services in Huntsville, AL and Chattanooga, TN.
