How managed IT services can boost your business in 2022
Of all the parts of a business that have turned upside down since the pandemic began, one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for IT services. As remote and hybrid work has become more common, IT needs have become more necessary and a bit more complex.
This is where a managed IT provider can help and here’s why you should consider working with one.
For business growth
Working with a managed IT provider can help boost your business by improving business functions, managing IT tasks and even assisting with complex projects that can often be time-consuming for your staff.
It will help your senior teams stay focused on revenue-generating activities and innovation, rather than dealing with technology issues.
At Aura, we can supply support and services as needed to handle growth spurts or emerging IT problems. Because scalable solutions can accommodate rapid changes, they can also help you stay productive, improve system availability and eliminate downtime.
It is cost-effective
If you don’t have an in-house IT team, a managed service provider is a cost-effective option, instead of hiring a full-time employee or team.
You typically pay for the services that you use, on a monthly retainer or project basis. Cost-effectiveness is one of the biggest benefits of opting for managed IT services, especially for small to medium-sized businesses.
A proactive approach
A managed IT provider can take a proactive approach, which means you can remain assured that all your networks, connected devices, and cloud-based applications are up to date. Regular maintenance and security patches also help your IT infrastructure to stay updated and capable of handling various challenges.
Many businesses benefited from outsourcing IT needs during lockdown, to support remote teams. For businesses continuing to use home and flexible working, 24/7 support is one of the key benefits of working with a managed service provider. At Aura, highly skilled service desk and on-site engineers are standing by ready to respond to any request.
Over the last two years, there has been a rise in Covid related cyber-attacks which has left businesses questioning their current IT strategy. Whether you have been directly affected by an attack or looking to boost your security, you should review your current strategy and identify what’s working and what’s not.
Putting your IT in the hands of a managed service provider can ensure your computer systems are monitored, and you’ll be alerted if something goes wrong or is about to. An integral part of our service at Aura is a disaster recovery and business continuity solution that will ensure your business is protected and your data secure.
Technical expertise is another reason why you should consider outsourcing your IT function to a managed IT provider in 2022. We can work closely with you to examine your business’s needs and provide a bespoke solution so that decisions are aligned with your business requirements.
Due to the nature of outsourced IT services, moving your workspace to the cloud is simplified. Cloud computing will benefit your business if you continue with remote and hybrid ways of working in ways such as increased security and storage. An IT specialist will help manage this as your business grows too.
