When businesses say, “My guy is handling our IT just fine, why do I need managed services?” What we really hear is “I’m not ready for a change.”
And we get that. Change invites new responsibilities, which will land on you — especially if you’re the one who suggested it.
In other words, don’t fix what ain’t broken.
But let’s be honest, doesn’t that seem a little short-sighted? No doubt your business has goals for 5, 10, even 15 years down the line.
How does your current IT situation fit into those goals? Just like your core business, your IT needs to evolve too.
So change may bring uncertainty, but here’s what’s for sure. With 1 IT person, you’re missing:
- Bandwidth – One person can’t do it all
- Clarity – It’s hard to spot problems from the inside
- Specialty Knowledge – No one knows everything
- Business Continuity – What happens if your IT person leaves
If you look at our article, 5 Types of IT Providers (And Their Impacts), you’ll see that Fixers and One-Man Islands can be risky.
Fixers: outsourced micro-company — often just a one-person venture.
- Blind spots
- Current problems undetected
- Future opportunities missed
- Shadow IT performed by another employee
One-Man Island: one in-house IT employee.
- Workload is too massive
- Things slip through the cracks
- Reactive IT > Proactive IT
- They leave; you’re left in the dust
Whether you’re outsourcing or have an in-house IT person, things could be better. Enter managed services providers.
5 Advantages With Managed Services Providers (MSPs)
With a quality managed services provider, your worries disappear. In fact, with an MSP, any IT burdens are now their responsibility, not yours.
Here’s how MSPs like us do it:
We have 140+ IT professionals to handle your IT needs. Our support spans the state of Florida from the panhandle to the keys.
Our team is made of nearly 40 different positions. From lead virtualization engineer to IT support specialist to principal consultant, every unique role means you get breadth and depth of expertise.
Speaking of expertise, our team has over 200+ certifications. Each iVenture employee spends an average of 12 months in technical and culture training. That’s 10 times the average industry amount.
And our learning never stops. With our own proprietary education platform, knowledge is a priority for every teammate.
Now, our highly skilled team of 140+ wouldn’t accomplish much without solid organization. Our goal is to move quickly and efficiently. When you call for support, a live tech responds in 5 seconds.
The other 50% are addressed in just 11 minutes. Compare that to the industry average of 3-7 hours.
Twenty years in business has taught us a lot. Working through the Dotcom Bubble, the 2008 Recession and now COVID-19 has taught us even more.
We know how industries like manufacturing, healthcare, legal and finance work. And we know the unique needs of small, medium and large businesses.
That wisdom is brought to every new client. In a sense, you’re getting the best shortcut.
