It’s not uncommon for new clients to meet with us to think that managed services agreements – which switch IT support from an unpredictable expense to flat monthly rate – are best for certain kinds of companies or industries.
In a way, that’s true. Although almost every type of business can benefit from the lower costs and better support that come from having managed services agreement in place, it’s especially great for businesses that are growing quickly.
Companies that are rapidly taking on new customers, employees, and projects need a lot of things that managed services agreements can provide. Most of the time they want fast answers, the flexibility to add new services or features to their technology quickly, lower monthly fees so they can pour money back into the company, and a backup plan that saves the bottom line if things don’t work out.
By having a dedicated outsourced IT team on your side, working proactively to manage your technology for a low flat rate, you get all of these advantages. Plus, you’ll always have the option of adding more to your service plan, or canceling it if you don’t need as much technology help as you think you will.
If your company is growing quickly, than a good managed services agreement is an option you shouldn’t delay exploring.
