What was the last “IT Emergency” that brought productivity to a halt at your office? How long did it take to set things right again? How much business was lost waiting?
Most companies have experienced work-stopping IT issues like a virus infiltration, a server crash taking their website and emails offline, or loss of files due to lost or broken mobile devices.
Did you know that managed IT services offer a solution that not only takes the headache out of managing multiple devices and systems, but could also save your company $1,000 to $2,000 a year per computer user?
Technology has become infused with just about every business function from sales people logging contacts in the field to marketing emails going out to customers and leads. Keeping your technology running smoothly has become a high priority for the health and continued productivity of any business.
While business managers and owners may see adding a managed service provider as another expense, it’s actually a money saver. And not just in the IT department either.
Our Team at Pixelated Tech has been helping businesses in the Nashua, NH area for many years to consolidate IT support costs, increase system and network up-time, and take advantage of customized managed IT services that fit both their budget and workflow.
What Type of Cost Savings Can You Expect?
So, how much money can you expect to save by outsourcing your IT management? That’s the key question for any business considering hiring a managed solution provider.
According to an IBM sponsored IDC white paper on the business value of managed services, companies gained significant and quantifiable benefits
by using managed services. Here’s a rundown of some of the statistics from their study.
- IT infrastructure costs reduced by 24%
- Staff productivity increased 42%
- End-user productivity enhanced from reducing downtime by 88%
- Payback period of just 5.5 months with 3-year ROI of 224%
- Annual savings in productivity ranged between $203,111 to $145,801 per 100 users (or roughly $1,000-$2,000 per user per year)
You see, the savings from keeping your computers, mobile devices, wired and wireless networks, and other technology running efficiently touches just about every facet of your business. When tech is down, customers can’t reach you or place online orders, and staff is at a standstill waiting on a repair.
If all systems run smoothly, your business also can function at top speed.
What Exactly Is Included with Managed IT Services?
The type of services that a managed service provider offers will differ slightly according to the company. But most offer similar proactive computer monitoring and maintenance of both hardware and software.
