Managed IT Services for Washington, DC Business
Washington, DC is home to a diverse range of businesses. One thing they all share is their reliance on information technology day in, and day out. Whether it’s a small mom and pop shop with a simple point-of-sale system, or a large corporation with a 500-user network and on-site servers, information technology plays an important role in the effective running of every modern-day business.
That’s why it’s important that every business in Washington, DC has the resources available to ensure that their technology is always up and running, and operating efficiently. Without dedicated resources to properly manage and maintain a business’ office technology, operations can come to a grinding halt when a piece of hardware fails or a software program isn’t updated and patched regularly, for example. With technology, there’s a myriad of issues that could happen and businesses need resources to mitigate the risks that can cause business disruption.
However, many businesses lack the knowledge and skills to build their own in-house IT team. And for some, it just doesn’t make financial sense to hire an IT staff member or entire team. That’s why many businesses choose to outsource their IT needs to a Managed IT Service Provider (MSP).
An MSP in Washington, DC provides the following benefits…
Tons of Value for Less
When businesses outsource their IT needs to a Managed IT Services Company, they immediately acquire a full team of IT professionals with a diverse background and variety of skills in information technology. This substantially expands the capabilities of the organization and provides the resources necessary to support a thriving business.
Business owners and executives are often thrilled to learn that Managed Services often cost less than hiring just one IT staff member. By outsourcing their IT needs, businesses don’t have to worry about hiring the right personnel and everything that comes along with it like salaries, benefits, and taxes. They get a full team dedicated to serving their business for one, low monthly rate.
IT Risks Mitigated
In this day and age, a business’ systems are expected to be up and running 24/7/365. Unfortunately, with the amount of threats that businesses are exposed to, this is often impossible to achieve. From Hardware failures and employee mishaps, to natural disasters and cyber attacks, businesses face a host of threats that aim to bring down their business. With businesses relying more and more on their data to run their business, the need to properly protect this data grows with it.
That’s why Managed IT Services companies utilize Business Continuity methodologies, Backup & Disaster Recovery, and robust Cybersecurity plans and procedures to mitigate the risks that businesses are exposed to. Threats to a business are unavoidable, but with the right plans and procedures implemented, business can reduce their risk substantially and get back on their feet quickly when disaster strikes.
Technology Aligned with Business Goals
Beyond minimizing IT risks, the right Managed Service Provider will also work to align the latest in office technologies with business goals. What this means is that the IT service company will analyze the operations of a business and how it currently uses technology to add value to its products and services. The MSP will then implement an IT strategy which aims to improve business efficiency and productivity, while also reducing waste by eliminating technology costs that do not provide value.
The result is a configuration of cutting-edge technologies that are strategically implemented to improve a business’ output, while reducing costs and downtime.
