Does Your Business Need a Managed IT Service Provider?

A managed service provider (MSP) is a third-party company that businesses outsource their many, varying needs to. Specifically related to IT, an MSP provides a framework through which they can remotely manage an organization’s IT operations.

Typically IT services have centered around a break/fix model of operations. When problems arise, a business then hires an IT operator to fix it. The break/fix model is a reactive service that results in unnecessary downtime, unpredictable costs, and user frustration.

A modern business cannot afford to take a reactive approach and wait for a problem to occur before acting. They need to take a proactive stance and minimize the possibility of costly downtime occurrences.
