For many businesses, taking care of their tech needs themselves is the option that makes the most economical sense to them. But, this DIY practice could end up costing them more and risk their customer information and other company data.
Their business will be less efficient having Jane, in accounting, who’s good at figuring out technical problems, spending her time assisting with things she is not best at. Managed services providers (MSPs) are a way for businesses, big and small, to get the technical support they need without having to bring everything in-house.
What are MSPs?
MSPs are businesses that help other companies with their IT, security, and other technical infrastructure. Often, this work is done remotely, but MSPs can also be used on-site to help with major projects or to help fix problems that can’t be dealt with any other way.
MSPs offer a range of services, including helpdesk, managed IT security solutions, virtual CIO, and strategy (among others) that remove the task of looking after the tech stack from your business. Even if you have an in-house IT team, MSPs can be helpful because they free up your staff from low-level tasks.
