If you’ve recently thought about switching from billable outsourced IT hours to an ongoing managed services agreement, we are willing to bet that it’s the prospect of having a regular monthly technology bill that’s most appealing. After all, it’s the one thing that business owners and executives love the most when they hear about the idea… especially if they have had the pleasure of paying for emergency IT repairs in the past.
If you can believe it, however, there is actually a much better reason to make the switch to managed services. That’s because, even though you’re trading billable hours for a steady monthly rate for your technology maintenance and repair, it isn’t your cash flow that’s affected most – it’s the actual technology itself.
Here is why: When you make the switch to a managed services agreement, your outsourced IT team no longer has to worry about keeping track of every minute they spend at your company. Instead, they are simply tasked with keeping things running smoothly. As a result, they do fewer technology repairs, and more proactive maintenance on your technology. In other words, they prevent issues from coming up in the first place.
That’s a small detail, but it makes all the difference because it means fewer emergencies and a lot less downtime for your company. Isn’t it time you talked with us about managed services?
