Thank you for joining us for the fourth part of our discussion on the 5 Benefits of Managed Services. This series of articles is designed to provide greater insight when making the decision between a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and hiring in-house IT employees.
4. Lower Operating Cost for Higher Quality
When it comes to new hires, how often do you consider ancillary overhead costs? Items like new computer costs, desks, office supplies, etc. are frequently overlooked. However, these costs are important to consider when hiring an in-house IT support team.
Being more technologically sophisticated, this team will require the purchase and update of all needed hardware and software to fulfill their critical job functions. This is, of course, in addition to salaries, bonuses, providing office space, and other necessary overhead costs. And these higher business expenditures are often transferred to your product or service pricing — which can make you less competitive in your industry.
A Managed Service Provider (MSP) enables your company to enjoy the benefits of a full IT team without the overhead costs and demands on management. You can secure this for a fraction of what an in-house team would require. For example, with an MSP, you may not need to buy hardware — and the upgrades it periodically demands. You also wouldn’t pay for sick leaves, bonuses, and other benefits that a full-time in-house team would require.
MSP companies like PCS give your business a ready-to-respond IT team and a secure operation at a lower cost. Hiring an MSP team helps you save costs without compromising quality. This makes more funds available for your company, which you can apply freely in the most high-impact, revenue-generating areas. With lower IT costs and excellent service, you can free up space in your budget while benefiting from top-notch IT.
With PCS, you have a dedicated team of trained experts with the flexibility to meet any rising demands and changes in your operation or your customers’ needs. Next week, we will discuss the final topic in our 5 Benefits of Managed Services series: Keeping up with Compliance and Security.
