When it comes to your business technology, it's easy to waste time and money. Not to mention, your technology issues can lead to headaches and frustration. But, why is that? The answer: most managed IT providers are only there for you when something breaks.  

Here at Egyptian Workspace Partners, we know it's easy to waste money on technology that doesn't work correctly. From small problems to big projects, we take care of your IT needs, so you can focus on running your business. 

In this article (and the video above), we'll list out the top things you should know about working with a managed IT services provider. That way, you'll be one step closer to knowing whether managed IT services are a good fit for your business.

Top 5 Things to Know About Managed IT Services

1. What are Managed IT Services?

Managed IT services are the outsourcing of your day-to-day technology needs to a third party service. When you outsource your technology, you can lighten your workload, increase IT efficiency and reduce costs. A managed services provider (or MSP) can either support or fully replace your internal IT team with:

  • 24x7 monitoring
  • On-demand IT support
  • Problem resolution

Typically, managed IT services cover your servers, desktops, network appliances, backup and cybersecurity. Most managed services providers offer two or three service tiers, so you can choose the package that works best for your business. 

2. Are Managed IT Services a Worthwhile Investment?

Managed IT services can help your business save significant time and money. Companies that adopt managed services usually see lower IT infrastructure costs, more time to focus on revenue-generating tasks and increased employee engagement and productivity

A managed services provider consistently (and constantly) manages, monitors and updates your IT infrastructure to reduce the likelihood of emergencies, licensing fees and on-site labor costs. Most importantly, by outsourcing your IT needs, you can focus on running your business

3. What Can a Managed IT Services Provider Do for You? 

When you work with a managed IT services provider, you have access to a team of qualified, certified technology experts with years of experience, knowledge and training. They can support or replace your internal IT team, without having to find and hire them yourself. 

4. Does a Managed IT Services Provider Follow Best Practices? 

As a business owner, it's a struggle to keep up with ever-changing IT regulations. By working with a managed IT services provider, you're instantly adopting IT standards and best practices to ensure your company is being proactive (as compared to reactive). 

A proactive team catches problems before they escalate into serious issues. Proactive monitoring (combined with a fast response rate) helps you minimize downtime and reduces the risk of serious, expensive problems that cost you money. 

5. Are You a Good Fit for Managed IT Services?

So, the question remains: Is your business a good fit for managed IT services? If you're tired with technology issues that prevent business growth, innovation and your team from getting your work done, you may want to consider managed IT services.
