Managed IT services can include everything from remote monitoring and backup disaster recovery, to cloud computing and 24/7 help desk support. These features give unbelievable value to companies, but many are hesitant to switch to an outsourced managed IT service. However, studies show that switching to managed IT can provide considerable financial benefits in a relatively short amount of time.
Return on Investment (ROI) – An IBM white paper called, “Business Value of Managed Services,” found that businesses using managed IT services experienced an ROI of 224% over three years with a payback period of 22 weeks.
Optimize Existing Resources – Many businesses have at least one in-house IT employee or even a partial IT team. Sadly, these IT employees often get bogged down fixing individual computers or connectivity issues, when they could, and should, spend their time on critical, business-building projects. According to the IBM study, managed IT services frees up their time to focus on revenue generating jobs, which can maximize potential in their current roles by 42 percent.
Increase Employee Productivity – When all your IT needs, from hardware to software to storage, are unswervingly monitored by a managed IT provider and operating at peak efficiency, employees can amplify productivity. Application downtime is cut by 88% with Managed IT services, according to the IBM study.
Incorporating managed IT into your company isn’t about taking a blind leap of faith. It’s a calculated choice that will yield a strong ROI, a better IT team, and an increase in productivity across your staff.
