As per the agreement, MSPs charge a flat fee for delivery of their services over a set period of time. The SLA defines exactly what services will be furnished and the degree they will be offered. The metrics for measuring the success of these services will also be used.

A little history on managed IT services

In the beginning of enterprise computing services, information technology services and management was on a break/fix basis, meaning that computer systems were only managed by an expert when they did not work, necessitating a technician to fix it. This person or technician might have been the person who built and/or installed the computer system, due to the proliferation of small IT shops that only specialized in this small-scale client services at the time.

However, as time goes by, there was more competition, this left the small IT dealer to focus less on Managed IT Services (Miami-Fort Lauderdale) and simply on break/fix. This unfortunately, was not ideal for these smaller IT shops it was time consuming, labor intensive, costly and reactive.It essentially was like a TV repair main. It did not focus on helping clients with a technology roadmap. It did not allow the technician room to grow their business or take on new clients without massive investments in labor and infrastructure.

Why Managed IT Services is Better

As inception of IPv6 computing device counts increased every year, the divide between break/fix services and the amount of computers to be serviced under the break/fix model grew wider and wider. Soon enough, Managed IT Services (Miami-Fort Lauderdale) started to emerge in the early years of the 2000s to meet this need, big change from the break\fix model.

Managed IT services championed a proactive approach to IT Services and IT Support Miami, attempting to do everything an IT department would do on a routine basis, while aiming to prevent problems before they started. Later, automation, increased software capabilities and the cloud allowed for monitoring and issue resolution to be provided remotely. This enabled more efficient processes and a consolidation of resources.

Agility, efficiency, consolidated resources and superb client satisfaction, coupled with fixed flat rates and bundling of services gave the ability to offer better service offerings and take on a larger clients.

What to Expect in Managed IT Services

MSPs use a full spectrum of IT expertise to fix problems efficiently. Not similar to break/fix providers, MSPs use the latest processes and software to proactively monitor endpoints, keeping systems up-to-date and preventing issues before they arise. Managed IT Services plans can also be available 24/7/365, allowing end users to take nights and weekends off while the MSPs do the heavy lifting on tasks and processes done after hours.

As mentioned these services can be offered at a flat recurring rates in tiered levels, delivering a higher level of automation and a higher level of management on the specified service level agreement. Customers or end users only pay for the services they require, and can increase or decrease their tier based on business needs and demand.

Expect More from Managed IT Services

Similar to other necessities in relation to supporting any type of facility, the end user pays for said services offsite, such as remote monitoring and management, service desk or help desk solutions, backup and disaster recovery solutions, and more. As you can see, Managed IT Services becomes an essential operating expense to maintain core functionality, instead of relying on a break\fix solution. MSPs help businesses to be more agile and more reliable than they would otherwise be. Additionally, they offer other value added solutions such as JNS offering Hosted PBX services or what is also known as our cloud phone service; a fully managed service where we maintain it and manage it remotely all for the same price you pay for the service.

Although, managed IT services do not really force the IT professional obsolete; for the end user, an IT person or professional is able to act as an endpoint liaison that manages the relation, delivers feedback and analyzes the reports provided by the MSP. Because the majority of routine work is being completed by the MSP, the IT professional is capable of greater efficiency and has the flexibility to tackle larger, more complex projects they would otherwise not have the time or capacity to take on.

So whats so great about Managed IT Services

Through outsourcing Managed IT Services businesses are able to reap the benefits of receiving IT services and everything with it at a significantly reduced cost. At the same time, good MSPs are very well in-tune with the latest technologies. This enables them to knowledge transfer to the customer’s technical staff rather than them sending internal staff to training.

By using an MSP businesses know what they are going to spend month after month on IT, and are freed from having to guess what the end amount will be. This allows companies to focus on growing their business without worrying about day-to-day IT issues or requirements.

Managed IT Services Help To Mitigate Risk

Another benefit to Managed IT Services is a greater opportunity for security expertise and successfully enacted security policies. MSPs work with standards such as PCI compliance day in, day out, and should be able to steer your organization within the parameters and regulations it needs to adhere to. For some organizations, especially in finance, healthcare, educations, and other industries, this type of regulatory compliance is mandatory for the IT portion of their business. It requires the expertise and experience that a managed service provider can offer. MSPs can mitigate risk in this way while assuring that the experts in charge of your IT operations are always up to date on the latest information, technologies and processes.
