When you're trying to manage a small business, there is plenty on your plate. You are responsible for all departments, including sales, marketing, and accounting.
Even though you might not feel ready to give sales and marketing to another person, managed IT solutions can help you greatly.
What is managed information technology solutions and how do they work?
Managed IT services are when a company handles all aspects of IT. Hosting your website, setting up the network infrastructure, and programming your phones with an automated answer feature (known as hosted telephone systems) are all examples of managed IT solutions.
Even if you know your stuff, you don't want the responsibility for IT in your company.
If your website is down, for example, you don’t want to be there with a phone in your ear and a support representative. You should be able to pick up the phone to have someone fix it.
Managed IT solutions will allow you to have someone monitoring your internet 24/7. They will notify you when your internet is down and fix it without you even having to do anything. You will have minimal downtime.
How about the expense?
Fear of the cost is probably the only reason you haven't already opted for managed IT solutions. You decided it wouldn't be economically feasible. It's possible that you don't know what it will cost, but you have decided you cannot afford it.
A thriving business can be run by people you trust. Delegating is the best way to manage your business.
Ask an IT company to take a look at what your business is doing. You may be surprised at the areas they can help with. They will also help you save time and money.
