If your business is considering hiring in house IT staff, you should first look into why a managed service provider might be a better option. Here's why:

Reduced IT Budget and Costs:

An MSP allows you to have a fully staffed IT department without hiring a single employee. You don't bear the cost of recruiting, hiring, training, salary, PTO, benefits and all of the other costs that come along with staff. You also get best in class tools that MSPs can provide for a fraction of the cost that even large enterprises could get. They provide licensing, tools, support to help efficiency, security and monitoring for a flat monthly fee. And you always know what you are paying because MSPs charge a monthly rate no matter how much you use their support. SMEs are able to get the same, even better support as large companies with lower costs.

Free Up Valuable Resources:

We hear it all too often, business leaders that get stuck dealing with IT problems instead of focusing on what they need to do. If you don't have someone to consistently take care of IT issues, you or someone else on your team get taken away from their responsibilities to get IT working. With an MSP you have your own internal IT team without the expense of hiring an IT staff. When you have an issue, you have the resources to take care of issues and get them resolved fast. Your team gets back to work instead of trying to troubleshoot hardware and software.

Stability and Scalability:

By focusing on your core business without the daily disruptions of IT issues, you are able to scale your business because there is less focus on IT and less downtime. Your MSP will manage and monitor your IT network and infrastructure keeping your business secure so you can rest easy. You get enhanced cybersecurity services that you may not be able to afford without an MSP.
