What is a Managed Service Provider?
Imagine the size your IT department would have to be to encompass every IT, telephony and connectivity demand your business has...
It is likely that the proposed IT department would be the largest within your company in order to look after all of the technological needs of your staff and your customers.
Do you have the money to hire that many heads and support that many salaries? If so, then great!
If however, you can’t afford to invest that much capital into labour but you still need smooth running and effective IT and telephony solutions, then a managed services provider may be the solution you are looking for.
WHAT DOES THE TERM MANAGED SERVICES PROVIDER ACTUALLY MEAN?
So, what actually is a managed services provider? Well, the industry definition of a managed services provider or ‘MSP’ is a ‘company that manages information technology services for other companies via the Web. An MSP client may use internal operations or an ASP to run its business functions.’
In Connected World’s case, we manage the IT, connectivity, security and telephony needs of businesses so that they do not worry about managing them independently.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM USING A MANAGED SERVICES PROVIDER?
The answer is just about anyone who needs expert consultation, implementation and maintenance of IT, connectivity and telephony systems.
However, we find that a large portion of our clientbase consists of small to medium sized enterprises in need of the same sophisticated level of technology that large scale companies have, without the expensive price tag.
To help them achieve this, Connected World manages IT, telephony and connectivity on their behalf in as much or as little capacity as they require. Our services eliminate the need for inhouse IT departments that can very quickly swallow up labour budgets.
WHAT TYPES OF MANAGED SERVICES DO CONNECTED WORLD OFFER?
Connected World offers a wide range of managed services. From maintaining clients’ broadband connectivity right through to full cloud migrations, our experienced consultants and industry technicians can help you transform your business digitally.
IS YOUR BUSINESS EMBRACING DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY?
Ask yourself, is your business truly embracing digital technology? Now, this doesn’t mean just having technology such as computers in the office. If you are not maintaining and periodically updating your technology, your systems will become slow, unstable and insecure which in time could cost you time and money.
