5 Advantages of Outsourcing Your IT Through Managed Services

Technology is constantly changing and evolving. Increased productivity, collaboration, and security are things every business owner wants. However, keeping up with this evolving technology can be challenging and time-consuming. In addition, as your business grows, so will its IT needs. But maintaining an in-house IT team is not always a practical solution.

Allowing a managed service provider (MSP) to take on some responsibility can help reduce costs, increase efficiency, and provide scalability. The end result? Your business gets the service it needs and advantages you may not expect – for less than the cost of a full-time employee.

Here are five advantages to outsourcing your IT through a managed service provider.

Cost Savings

One of the best incentives for working with a managed service provider is that it can actually save you money! Hiring, managing, and maintaining an in-house IT department is expensive and time-consuming. With a managed service provider, you will get an IT department at a much lower cost. For example, at Grand Technology Solutions, we offer both a competitive hourly rate and remote monitoring and management packages, so you only pay for the services you need.

Experts & Experience

When you hire a managed service provider, you get access to an entire team of IT professionals who have “been there and done that” across various companies. This means when a new problem arises, your MSP already knows how to fix it for you quickly and at lower costs. At Grand Technology Solutions, our IT professionals constantly undergo training in the latest technology to provide you with the best service available.

Compliance & Security

Securing your customers’ data and maintaining regulatory standards are critical to the success of your business. It is your responsibility to take good care of essential business data to avoid legal sanctions and the potential loss of your customers’ trust. Outsourcing to an MSP, like Grand Technology Solutions, lets you focus on your core business. While we help implement strategies to maintain compliance, protect against network vulnerabilities, and provide security solutions that will work for your business.


Scalability is vital to supporting business growth and development. As technology advances and evolves, your business will need to be prepared to adapt and grow within your industry. A good managed service provider will anticipate your business needs and supply you with the right tools and services to help your business grow. Being able to scale resources up or down based on demand helps maintain productivity, improve system availability, and eliminate potential downtime. When companies try to resolve all IT services internally, they spend much more time on implementation, research, and development, which increases costs.

Focus on Your Business Goals

If you’re a small business, resources are likely limited. Outsourcing your IT needs allows you to focus on what you want for your business while your managed service provider supplies the IT support you need to get it.
