Managed Services – The Ultimate SMB Budget Hack
It’s not often that something profoundly changes the landscape of business technology management as much as managed services has. When implemented correctly, managed IT services can completely replace the traditional methods of technology management within a company, and it all starts with changing not just your budgeting practices but also your maintenance practices.
Managed IT is Budget-Friendly
It is often expensive to replace technology, especially when it is a complex component like a workstation or a server unit. These types of unexpected investments can break a budget if you’re not careful. Thankfully, managed IT gives your business an out by providing services based on a service level agreement. In other words, you get services rendered—technology maintenance included—in exchange for a smaller, more manageable monthly payment that doesn’t destroy your budget.
Managed IT is Operations-Friendly
One of the biggest benefits of managed IT is that it changes the way your organization approaches its technology operations. The traditional break-fix model of IT involves addressing technology issues when they have already impacted operations rather than preventing them in the first place, meaning that the issues wind up costing you money in the short and long term.
On the other hand, managed IT allows you to proactively address small issues and keep them from becoming larger problems, meaning that your operations are not disrupted. This also allows your company to focus on what matters most: what you do for your clients.
