Top 5 Signs You Need Managed IT Services

No matter what type of business you run, IT issues arise from time to time. Investing in trained, effective and dedicated managed IT services ensures your business is protected and never left in the dark.

Managed IT Services offer constant IT support for an affordable, fixed monthly fee. When you choose this solution, you don’t have to worry about cash flow if an unexpected IT issue occurs. A managed service provider brings peace of mind that your business is protected 24/7. 

How do you know if your business is in need of managed IT services? Here are 5 tell-tale signs your company would benefit from a managed service provider.

1. Chronic or Unresolved IT Problems

If your business is suffering recurrent IT issues this may be a sign you need a dedicated IT managed service provider. A great managed service provider will have the latest tools and technologies at their disposal, as well as the experience and expertise, to resolve IT problems before they disrupt your business.

2. Unpredictable IT Costs

If you have no idea what you are going to be spending from one month or quarter to the next, this is a clear sign your business is in need of IT managed services. When you outsource the service and support of your IT systems to Datek, not only will you receive peace of mind because you have the IT support you need, but you will have a simple, fixed monthly fee. This helps to protect your bottom line and works to create stability even in unstable economic times.

3. Concerns Over Security

Hacking, phishing emails, scams, viruses, and malware could all cost your business thousands of pounds, or worse. Hackers and viruses do not discriminate based on the size of a company and it doesn’t matter if you have 1,000 daily users or a dozen, your business can be at risk. If you are worried about protecting sensitive data and want to ensure best practices for storing and managing data, hire an IT managed service provider! There are so many security vulnerabilities a company faces today, don’t wait until it’s too late.

4. Data Protection

Similar to a robust IT security support plan, data backup is a good place to start. However, to be truly protected, your business needs to go beyond a routine data backup plan and implement a robust disaster recovery plan. Datek Solutions’ managed service providers will create a detailed, bespoke disaster recovery plan to ensure your business is protected against man-made or natural disasters, limiting any downtime to your business. If you’re settling for less than this level of service, you need to ask yourself whether your business is properly protected? 

5. Lack of Confidence in Current IT Solutions

New technology products come on the market every day and there are constant updates to features of existing software. For some in-house IT staff, they may find it hard to stay up to date with industry best practices. As a result, your organisation could be missing out on important updates or new technologies capable of increasing productivity and customer retention. More importantly, without updating systems regularly, your business could be at risk of a cyber-attack. For a consistent, affordable rate you can ensure your business is utilizing the most up-to-date technologies by hiring a managed IT service provider.
