Managed IT Services

Top 7 Signs That Your IT Isn't Working

The drive to become a competitive and dominant player in your market requires leveraging the latest tech innovations. The growth in managed IT services is projected to reach over $320 billion by 2025. Managed Services Providers are expected to account for approximately 17% of SMBs’ IT spending by 2025. You may have tried to fulfill all your IT needs in-house, but there’s a shortfall. With a Managed Services Provider, your company will benefit from comprehensive managed IT services, IT staffing, cybersecurity, managed infrastructure services, and more.

Tell-Tale Signs You Need a Reliable IT Partner

Here are some of the indicators that you need dependable IT support from an experienced managed IT services company:

Your IT Team Avoids Contacting Your Existing IT Partner

Do you have an existing IT partner that’s not working out for your company? Does your team dread contacting them because it’s impossible to get through to their help desk or their IT support is lacking? Switch to a responsive Managed Services Provider that is willing to learn the nuances of your operations to give you the best IT support.

Small Internal IT Team

At first, your small, but mighty IT team was sufficient for your company’s needs. However, you now need expert IT staff in niche areas. A Managed Services Provider offers experienced IT staff that can resolve the most advanced problems that arise. These experts will also help increase your internal team’s knowledge base.

Your IT Team Lacks Certifications

Your IT team may not have the latest IT certifications in specialized areas. Hiring a Managed Services Provider gives your company access to IT experts with specialized knowledge to give you high-quality managed IT services.

Frequent Network Issues

Network downtime is the bane of SMBs, as it means greater business disruption, reduced employee productivity, risk of lost customers, and less revenue. Frequent network issues are a sign that you need to get expert IT support to help you save time and money while improving your company’s reputation in the marketplace.

Your Team is Always Fixing IT Problems

Is your internal IT team always implementing quick fixes to keep your network running? Are they swamped with a lot of help desk requests? Then you need help.

A Managed Services Provider will not only keep your network online, but you will also benefit from preventive maintenance services. They will ensure that all your IT systems are updated and closely monitored to quickly resolve issues. This frees your internal IT team from putting out fires and helps them complete meaningful work to grow your company.

Inefficient IT Spending

Your IT budget is critical for enhancing your tech capacity. Therefore, it should not be squandered on fixing a myriad of IT issues. Even if you’re not spending on repairs, you may be spending more for IT support than necessary when you hire multiple IT vendors. With managed IT services, you access all the IT support that your company needs for an affordable, fixed monthly fee, which allows you to spend more on growth-oriented IT projects.

New IT Projects on the Horizon

Growth often means changes to your IT network and services. You can leverage managed IT services for these new IT projects in several ways such as:

  • Outsource basic IT tasks to free your internal IT team to focus on completing these projects
  • Outsource complex projects or the harder parts of a project to specialized IT experts to complete

Hiring a Managed Services Provider lets you choose the IT support and services you need when you need them.
