The word “invest” can acquire different connotations in the administrative level of a company. If we add novelty to the word “investment”, we may feel uneasy or doubtful, probably because the unconscious relates it to risk and, sometimes, to loss. 

It goes without saying that no one wants to lose when it comes to investing. However, when it comes to the business world, the reality is that part of a company’s success lies precisely in the risks. Therefore, before making a decision regarding the way in which you manage technologies within your business, you should study and analyze how favorable it could be to incorporate a service provided by third parties, in the short and medium term. 

The evolution of IT

IT technologies have shown a remarkable and exponential growth in recent years, which has favored the great scope and development they currently present. 

But the evolution of technology also brings with it the appearance of problems that did not exist before, such as cyber-attacks or massive blackouts that can completely alter the way we carry out our day-to-day activities.  What makes the situation worse is that these risks do not only affect large corporate conglomerates, but the security of small businesses can also be compromised. 

It is precisely with the need to reduce these risks that Managed IT Services appear and with it, a respite for all those who cannot manage and control these services on their own. 

But taking into account what we said at the beginning, how to reduce the risk of loss and turn the investment in IT Managed Services into a complete success? 

It’s true that not everyone is ready to take this big leap, but if you think you are, let us walk you through these four reasons that might be telling you it’s time to invest in Managed IT Services

Are you ready for it? Pay attention to the following. 

1. Your company is in the process of expansion.

Growing as a company requires more than just capital investment. One of the most valuable elements of the expansion process is the investment of time made by each of the departments that make up your company. 

Perhaps the first few weeks of the process everything seems to go smoothly, but after this time you may register a considerable drop in the performance of your workers. Managed IT Services can help optimize the time of your workers and focus on projects that are key to the success of your business, as both daily tasks, such as security or updating, simply delegate them to the external team.

2. Your IT solutions are limited 

Another disadvantage of taking charge of your own IT Management is that knowledge and therefore solutions may become limited. However, with the support of a Managed IT Service, you will not only have a highly trained and expert team in the area, but you will also be able to look for solutions together and benefit from the knowledge of each of its members. 

Managed IT Services are also ideal for monitoring the ongoing maintenance of all the media your company uses. You don’t have to worry about the absence of one or two people, because the entire team will be ready to meet your needs and find efficient and immediate solutions. 

3. You are not sure you can guarantee the security of your system.

Have you ever suffered from lack of sleep due to work-related worries? The security of your systems, management and communication media can take away your peace of mind. 

Managed IT Services support business security by using the most efficient strategies in terms of IT security. But not only that, they also offer effective solutions in the event of a threat and you are out of working hours. 

With this type of service your business will be safe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, because there will always be someone available to help you get immediate solutions and results.

4. You want immediate solutions that are also more economical and efficient.

There is no denying that the cost of IT Managed Services increases in price when only a periodic review is performed. This is mainly because problems tend to accumulate and if you don’t have a plan in place to fix them, it will eventually result in higher costs that will be more difficult to manage.  

It is much more feasible to delegate these activities to a third party and pay a pre-established monthly fee, so that maintenance, management and troubleshooting can be done on a monthly basis and unexpected expenses can be avoided.
