What are the Key Benefits of Managed IT Support?
Business IT support is all around and offered by several IT agencies, but what exactly are the key benefits to having managed IT support for your business? In this blog post we look at the core reasons why an outsourced service could improve your business, without even lifting a finger.
Affordability and Value for Money
The cost of IT services is something that any entrepreneur would think about when owning a medium or small business. IT support may seem out of reach or unnecessary, but you would be extremely surprised how useful a managed service can really be for smaller businesses. Choosing an outsourced service is more than affordable, with it being a fraction of the cost of hiring a single IT professional. You would ordinarily be looking at £30,000 per year on average for an in-house IT expert, whereas you would only be looking at around £500 a month on average for a managed service. And for that £500 (from us) you would get 24/7 system monitoring, superior security and an expert team manning a useful customer helpdesk.

More Free Time
Having a dedicated team of experts on your side means that they’re taking on all the technical problems you may have, freeing up time so that you can keep running your business. You could be wasting several hours a week of your precious time trying to sort out your business IT, time that could be better spent growing and nurturing your business. We can promise minimal to no downtime with our 24/7 system monitoring. We can see problems before they even reach you, so we ensure to nip them all in the bud ASAP so you can carry on doing what you do best.
As we all know, data protection is extremely important when working within a business. Working with various customers or even offering your very own services means that you accumulate a lot of data which you need to keep protected at all times by law. The Data Protection Act 1998 covers the processing of personal data from people living within the UK. Of course you and your business will always try your hardest to keep data protected, but every now and then you may have something slip through the cracks. Our managed IT support can help you keep all of your data 100% protected, we understand how serious data protection is and we take care of all of our client data.
