Are you sick of Ongoing IT Issues?
Like muscle strain or a persistent cough that won't go away, many IT issues prove ongoing. Every time they come back you think about getting an expert's opinion. Then, the cough fades, you can walk freely again, or your computers are back up and running. You keep on going. Until the next time. If you're sick of ongoing issues with your IT, look to a Managed Service Provider (MSP) for help.
IT ailments can negatively impact your ability to do work. Let's consider some of the particularly common ones, and why an MSP is a right prescription Many.
#1 NETWORK AND INTERNET ISSUES
Business is done online nowadays. Being unable to connect to the network and slow connections are frustrating. Without the Internet, how can you do your job? You could not even send and check emails! Let alone access team documents or enter data into cloud-based accounting software. A lagging network also slows down data and application loading time. It may only be a few moments of thumb-twiddling. But add that up over several times a day and multiple by employees. You're looking at a decrease in productivity that adds up.
An MSP has the know-how to survey the IT environment for what's causing these frustrations. When there's a problem, they are ready to resolve it and help to improve reliability.
#2 REPEATED MALWARE INFECTIONS
This can mean a couple of things. First, you don't have an effective system and application protections in place. These attacks shouldn't be able to make it through the door in the first place. With the right firewalls, protections, and anti-spam, you should be able to keep your system on lockdown. You don't have to do this yourself. Your internal IT team has a lot to monitor and manage. Gain expert backup with an MSP reviewing your security protocols to keep the bad guys at bay.
Secondly, educate employees about the dangers of social engineering. Don't let them keep falling for the pretexts and downloading malicious files. Also, ensure passwords are strong enough to avoid adding another point of entry.
#3 PRINTING PROBLEMS
Many businesses are printing less today, but we're not done with hard copies entirely. So, when a printer can't connect, starts whirring, spinning endlessly, efficiency halts. Know that printers sold at big box stores are consumer-grade quality. Avoid printer frustrations with solid business-class printers (which your MSP can identify).
#4 APPLICATION OVERLOAD
Maybe some of your employees prefer Dropbox. Others rely on their free Gmail accounts. This hodgepodge of options can cause chaos. Staff have a hard time remembering the passwords to all of the accounts they need. So, they simplify, and that makes their accounts more hackable.
Upgrading to business-grade versions of important applications is easier with an MSP. They will help to identify the software that best addresses your business needs.
#5 AGING TECHNOLOGY
You've had your current computers for ages. They are slower than you'd like, but you don't have the time to look for something else. Plus, you can't imagine having to learn something new. You're too busy. But aging tech is more likely to fail, which could prove catastrophic if you don't have the right systems backup. MSPs know IT. Based on your individual business needs, they can suggest a plan of attack to update the IT and keep it secure. They can also provide backup strategies to prepare for the worst and recover quickly. A managed service provider has your back when it comes to IT. Work with experts who focus on technology day in and day out. You will typically save money and gain time to spend innovating in your field. Gain a competitive advantage with the support of an MSP.
