A strong IT team will accelerate your organization's goals and its path to success. So how can an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP) be of assistance to your in-house team? Supplementing your current staff with an MSP will fill gaps that could otherwise go unnoticed.
Framework's mission is to ensure that your business is equipped with the tools it needs to run without interruption while maintaining maximum security.
1. More Available Resources
You’ve probably heard the cliché, “There’s strength in numbers,” and it certainly applies to well-run technology. Your internal team can't be everywhere at one time making it hard to find the time for the larger projects. Your team is essentially limited in man-hours, and there is no easy way to scale up and down to cater to your fluctuating needs. MSP’s have the economies of scale to deploy technicians that can provide greater coverage and a higher level of continuity, so you never experience downtime of your day-to-day tasks. MSP’s are also able to rapidly accommodate increased service needs as you grow, without the headaches of you having to quickly recruit, hire, and onboard the right IT staff.
No matter how big your internal team is, it is unlikely you can field specialists in all areas of technology. MSP's have experts in all areas to help tackle complicated issues. Even a part-time MSP contract will be beneficial to the overall uptime and productivity of your organization. With a subject matter expert on hand, your staff can delegate tickets based on needs to also break down the recruitment and specialization barriers.
3. Cost Efficient
Your team is essentially in man-hours, and there is no easy way to scale up and down to cater to your fluctuating needs. Due to their scalable teams, specialization, and robust processes, MSPs can also cost your organization less than hiring more IT staff. With just an internal team, you are limited in capacity in regard to both scaling and finances. Organizations that leverage an MSP with in-house IT as well can achieve an overall lower IT budget.
