As technology continues to evolve and cyberattacks become more sophisticated, keeping up with the changing landscape and latest trends can be challenging. Small to medium sizes business owners and nonprofit leaders may especially feel the pressure to “do it all.” Being faced with these challenges can be overwhelming and LincolnIT has decades of experience helping clients take that pressure off. The consideration to outsource your IT requires a lot of thought and research to determine if it’s the best solution for you.
At first, it may seem more costly and not the right approach for your business, but let us reassure you — outsourcing your IT to an experienced Managed IT Service Provider (MSP) like LincolnIT can reap numerous benefits for your business or organization. These benefits range from saving money to achieving your business goals. We highlight five key benefits to outsourcing that we have heard directly from our cilents have been impactful for them.
Research by Infrascale found that the top reason businesses opt to work with MSPs is to save costs. When you partner with an IT service provider, you control the costs. As a business, you will be able to budget more effectively by paying for only what you need. Additionally, you will realize savings because you won’t have to hire or train a dedicated IT team. Turnover is managed by your MSP, and they absorb the responsibility to keep the staff trained on both processes and technology.
With LincolnIT, you can expect the highest level of customizable managed services and professional IT solutions that meet your budget. For over 20 years, we have supported a diverse mix of technology solutions for SMBs, mid-market, enterprise, and nonprofit organizations. Whether your business is an enterprise looking for global operational support or a nonprofit that needs to adhere to a strict budget, we can support it all. Learn more about who we serve.
It Increases Efficiency & Saves Time.
If you’re trying to source your IT in-house, it can be difficult to research, develop, and implement proper technology. Turning to a team of experts with decades of experience in the field is a better way to manage time and resources. According to global managed services market growth research from Mordor Intelligence, MSPs can improve operational efficiencies by 46 to 65 percent.
MSPs can also help implement the right tools to increase efficiency among your team. Whether your business implements automation for specific tasks or utilizes the cloud for easy collaboration, you and your team will be able to increase efficiency and save time with proper technology. Reputable and mature MSP’s are continually exploring and evaluating best of breed solutions to manage infrastructure, tickets, patching, and many of the functions that a robust IT support and delivery team need to be effective. LincolnIT has a robust and thoroughly tested toolkit which benefit our clients, and can benefit you as well. Learn more about our range of IT services here.
You Get Access To Experts & Resources.
You get access to a deep bench of technology subject matter experts.
Technology changes constantly, and it takes time to properly vet, research, and select the best solution for your business. Instead of leaving this burden to your in-house IT team, turn to an MSP with a proven track record of experience. Beyond the cost savings, another significant benefit to working with an MSP, is the access to a deep bench of technology subject matter experts (SME). Burwood Group Inc. writes, “A good managed service provider assumes the cost of acquiring the most effective infrastructure tools and provides highly experienced talent to deploy and maintain them on your behalf.”
In addition to LincolnIT’s depth of experience, we also build and preserve vendor relationships while recognizing emerging technology, When you partner with LincolnIT, you partner with a range of technology companies who specialize in various technology solutions such as building toolkits, manufacturing, and much more. The ability to scale quickly through both your MSP and their manufacturer relationships gives you leverage within your own industry, and can provide exponentially greater benefits than embarking on this journey on your own.
It Gives You Peace of Mind & 24/7 Support.
Regardless of the size of your business and your industry, you are susceptible to cyberattacks, and the consequences can be detrimental. In fact, data breaches cost enterprises an average of $3.92 million when they occur. Your business cannot afford to lose money, data, and reputability. With a trusted MSP, your security platform will be strengthened to protect and defend your assets.
LincolnIT offers a solid security foundation as a standardized part of our offering. When it comes to securing your data, systems, and programs, we never make exceptions. Security is always at the forefront of everything we do. With tools like secure remote work policies, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), managed firewall systems, and data backups, we can assist organizations of all sizes and industries with advanced technology solutions. If your business has already adopted all of these strategies, what’s next? You can never be too secure. And if you have not, this can be a great time to employ an outsourced provider to help get these started, or bring them over the finish line.
