Every company needs someone to manage IT for business to run smoothly, safely and securely. From computers and phones to networks and passwords, ensuring data privacy and protection. But many small medium businesses don’t have the time, talent, or money to keep IT tasks in-house.
We are all well-aware that COVID-19 has upended just about every facet of life in 2020 & 2021. We’re also all operating under the mentality that this is our new reality, though we are hopeful that conditions will return to a more “normal” state in the future.
Yet, one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for professional IT services. In fact, as remote work has become more common, IT needs have become more necessary and a bit more complex.
As you finalise your business plan for 2022 and look into your cyber security, managed support services. Edit Ltd technicians are here to help 24/7 even in an emergency.
Why Managed Services?
According to the Salesforce Report, the most restricting factors on business operations include access to investment, finding the right technology to meet their needs, and hiring the right talent. And, on everybody’s mind right now is how to address growing cybersecurity threats and worries.
So, why exactly will businesses be seeking your managed services in 2022? Let’s break down these top four steps to the future!
1. Access to newer technologies / Why managed Services?
Often, businesses over burden employees who may lack the skills and training necessary for certain tasks or can’t handle the whole of the company’s network on their own. In response, these businesses identify the value of working with an outside technical support team, such as Edit Ltd. Not only does IT outsourcing help with having an extra team of IT experts able to troubleshoot and remediate issues that arise, clients benefit from having access to the latest technology and business-grade solutions that maintain uptime and profitability, such as remote monitoring, management, backup and disaster recovery and much more.
Investing in the managed services business model tackles existing labour constraints and prevents internal IT departments from always having to play catch-up. By working with Edit Ltd technicians’ businesses gain access to business-grade technology and leverage tools to increase their IT infrastructure’s reliability, allowing you to better plan for long-term goals that help scale your business.
2. ROI and cost savings
One of the biggest business values of managed services is greater cost savings. IT budgets consist of many items: hardware costs, software and network infrastructure costs, and maintenance costs etc.
Maybe you want to work with needs to reduce the size of your IT department because the cost of paying your current staff is far too high. It could also be the case that the company lacks a dedicated IT team, and employees must compensate by performing technical tasks outside of their core area of expertise, slowing productivity, and preventing opportunity to grow.
With the managed services business model, customers can more easily predict their IT costs on a month-to-month basis., allowing you to devote more time to higher-value projects you’re effectively equipped to manage while increasing overall productivity.
3. Enhanced security
Security is quickly becoming a annoying issue for all small businesses. A recent study published by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport found that four in ten businesses (39%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months (2021). Like previous years, this is higher among medium businesses (65%), large businesses (64%) and high-income charities (51%) with business email compromise and ransomware attacks leading the charge. That’s distressing, and it’s a figure that is sure to continue growing.
