A managed service might seem like the perfect scenario, but as covered previously, there are often many situations where different support options may be more suitable. So what kind of businesses do managed services benefit the most? It’s not so much what kind of business, as it can be right for all types, it’s more down to individual factors affecting the business or organisation such as growth, flexibility and budget.
Growth of Business
If you business is growing faster than you can keep up with, then maybe your IT is too. Fast IT infrastructure and systems growth usually means a lot more maintenance, checks and security practices become necessary. This is where outsourcing to a managed service can be beneficial, meaning you won’t need to either employ new staff to look after your IT or use up your existing resource.
Flexibility is an aspect of business often overlooked when thinking about IT systems and services. From hot desking facilities to remote working, and accessibility and on-the-go communications, it is common practise for many business’ of all sizes to operate in a flexible manner. Teams that work in this sort of environment benefit from a managed service because they often don’t have fixed staff dedicated to the task of monitoring infrastructure.
Budget / Cost Savings
One of the biggest benefits of outsourcing your IT is the cost savings associated with it. Besides taking the extra workload away, using a managed service means less overheads for additional staff.
Ultimately, There is no Specific Formula
Of course these are just a few reasons why a business in a particular situation may benefit from a managed service, and ultimately, there is no specific formula or set of rules that determines whether you should bring in a managed service.
