Boring’s Not So Boring
Managed Network Services Increase Productivity and Decrease Overhead
Managed IT functions such as Managed Network Services (MNS), remote network monitoring, document management, optimization of workflow, backup & disaster recovery, remote server management, VOIP, and cloud services increase efficiency while minimizing overhead. In a nutshell, companies can save the expense of hiring full-time staff to be on site in exchange for a dedicated team on call at a moment’s notice for much less of an investment.
Great value is inherent in the guaranteed ongoing management of IT functions by a managed service provider, both in the level of expertise and in the speed of response available by a company whose sole purpose is to help other businesses run more smoothly.
The job of a MNS provider is to become a partner in business with clients, complementing and enhancing current infrastructure. In larger organizations where IT is already in place, partnership with an IT support company that offers MNS allows IT staff to be involved in more strategic applications, leaving the day-to-day health and operational activities to be managed remotely or on an as-needed basis. Additionally, MNS offers proactive monitoring and maintenance so the traditional “break-fix” model is abandoned for a more efficient, minimal downtime “fix it before it breaks” approach.
By outsourcing IT functions to a provider specifically dedicated to the efficiency and reliability of those functions, companies are seeing vast improvements in areas of security, compliance, ROI/cost savings, and overall profitability.
As more companies are seeing the benefits of MNS it has become clear that cost savings are just the tip of the iceberg. Now we are seeing that beyond the primary level of fixed cost improvements, benefits extend to more resources available internally to increase revenue, enhance productivity and maximize profits all around.
