Using Managed IT Services to Help Your Business Grow

The Business Development Bank of Canada released the Digitize Now: How to Make the Digital Shift in Your Business study last October. They surveyed more than 2,000 Canadian businesses and found out that only 19% of them have an advanced digital profile whereas another 57% are digitally conservative.

Among these companies that invested in digital technologies significantly, 52% of them were more likely to have enjoyed high profit growth in the past three years. On the other hand, 25% of digitally conservative businesses have seen their sales plummet in the last few years.

The study also suggests a few steps for digitizing your business like investing in technology, unleashing the power of data, and working for continuous improvement. In this context, managed IT services are a great option to help your business grow. From improving your budget in 2019 to streamlining your processes, here are just a few benefits of using managed IT services:

Reallocating Internal Resources

Instead of asking your employees to manage all of your company’s IT requests, consider letting a managed IT service take care of the everyday tasks that are necessary to keep your business running smoothly, and let your team members handle new initiatives and projects that require your top talent. Your staff will appreciate the fact that they won’t have to tackle every small, but time-consuming task, and can focus on improving your organization’s IT strategy instead.

Optimal Maintenance

Similarly to the point above, when your team is spread thin and trying to accomplish every task necessary to help your company operate, they don’t have enough time to offer your IT infrastructure the maintenance it deserves. A managed IT service provider can ensure your network is operating optimally and securely, and can better prevent any threats or disturbances.

Improving Scalability

If a new contract landed in your lap, could your IT services scale easily enough? The last thing you want to do is to turn away business and valuable customers, right? By employing a managed service provider, you can focus on scaling the rest of your business leaving the IT services to us.

Bettering your Budget

By outsourcing certain essential, but not internally-vital IT services, you can effectively give your budget a nice boost this year. That’s because external managed IT service providers have become experts at doing just that. Instead of investing thousands of dollars on in-house equipment and staff, you can let an external provider do the work in a cost-effective manner. If you’re looking for ways to make your business more cost-efficient, managed IT services may be a great option.

Choosing the Right Managed IT Service for You

When you’re looking for a reputable managed IT service provider, you have to consider the business’s expertise and processes. Take a look at their reputation and their track record for helping businesses succeed. When you’re entrusting your IT infrastructure, something so vital to your business, to an external organization, you want to ensure they are nothing but the best.
