What is managed IT?
Managed IT is becoming very common in businesses today, especially amongst small to medium sized businesses; but what exactly are Managed IT Solutions and how can they benefit your business?
Investing in Managed IT means outsourcing your information technology needs to a third-party organization. Third party Managed IT organizations provide complete care of your network, data, IT security and more.
What solutions/services does Managed IT provide?
Organizations offering Managed IT Solutions can offer a range of services but not all organizations will necessarily offer all in the list below.
They can provide:
- IT Helpdesk Support
- Network Administration & Security
- Managed Backup
- Managed IT infrastructure

Why should I invest in managed IT?
- Save money and time
Creating an in-house team of IT professionals can not only be a large monetary investment but also have a significant time impact on your business. Recruiting and training an in-house team does mean they will have knowledge specific to your business but it may take some time and investment to get there. In comparison, a Managed IT organization will have IT professionals with a variety of skills and expertise that will be able to solve any problem thrown at them. Often these organizations will be able to solve IT issues faster than your internal IT team.
- Reduce the number of resources required
When you onboard a Managed IT Organization you will need to invest in less resources; another monetary saving. As Managed IT business are already established, they have all the tools and equipment they need to do their job and set up your business to be fully IT functional from day one. They also have the knowledge to assess your workplace and needs and provide tailored solutions. This not only saves you time in trying to work out the best solution for your business but gives you the ability to easily modify your options at any time.
- Stay ahead of the curve
A major advantage of investing in Managed IT is knowing about and implementing new technology in your business. Trying to handle new technology in-house can be time consuming and clunky as you try to make changes. An Managed IT business will be able to help you make the change to new technology sooner and easier. This is a huge benefit for small to medium sized businesses as they are then able to keep up with big businesses who can often afford to make the switch to new technology faster.
