Small businesses by far make up the largest percent of total businesses in the US. Many of these businesses are too small to justify employing a full-time IT staff, and many rely on tech savvy employees with entirely unrelated job descriptions to pick up IT related tasks or help resolve technical issues. This can be a terrible mistake.
If your business is too small to hire a full-time IT employee or department, outsource these services instead. Rather than dumping extra work on already overwhelmed employees or counting on someone who seems to know his way around a computer to be responsible for the security of you network, leave it to the professionals.
Managed IT services allow small businesses to retain an entire team of IT professionals to help whenever they are needed. This is a much more cost effective option than hiring a full-time IT employee or worse, having your information and data compromised by someone inexperienced.
Some of the benefits of managed IT services include:
- Data backup and recovery
- Anti-virus and anti-spam protection
- Integrated phone systems
- Quality, reliable Internet services
- Network monitoring
- Proactive security measures
- Troubleshooting technical issues
- Equipment monitoring
- Configuration improvements
Just to name a few!
If your small business fits into this category, you’ve probably grappled with this dilemma of whether or not to hire an IT specialist. Try managed IT services instead. You’ll get a lot more bang for your buck.
