Make an IT Provider Your Technology Guide

Your digital guideMaking information technology decisions can feel confusing and sometimes even insurmountable A local IT provider or MSP (managed services provider) can be your guide.

With so many of us working off-site right now, digital transformation has moved from “wouldn’t it be nice?” to “we need it now!” Technology is as essential service to business success but where do owners and managers go when trying to figure out how to proceed?

Working with a trusted IT partner, will help you navigate the technology landscape. Even before COVID-19 sent so many people home to work, IT service companies provided help and guidance in areas such as:

  • maintaining and monitoring IT networks, systems, software and applications.
  • keeping computer systems, servers and other equipment up to date and secure.
  • helping find cost savings and ways to streamline business processes.
  • implementing new technologies to help businesses collaborate better and work more efficiently.
  • offering cyber security and data backup strategies to suit business needs.
  • migrating business data, email and applications to the cloud.

The current environment is challenging businesses to pivot their IT needs quickly and enable multiple work locations, yet this type of work is second nature to most IT providers.

Taking the IT Partner Route

Working with an IT provider / partner will enable you to gain the assistance of IT consultants to make the right tech decisions. This isn’t just deciding what online meeting platform works best for your needs (although they can do that too). A great partner will take the time to learn:

  • how you perform business now.
  • what technology is available and applicable to your business.
  • see how your users engage with the technology and if there are better more productive ways to achieve the same outcomes.
  • assist in short and long term business goals.
  • what your end users are looking for.

With this information, they can provide IT help at the business-strategy level. The partner will be experienced in what works and what doesn’t. Drawing on a depth of experience with other customers, they can help you avoid expensive mistakes. With a wealth of contacts with technology vendors, suppliers and partners they can also often find you better deals.

Don’t waste your own valuable time on IT issues and plans and work with an IT provider so that you can then spend your time on other important areas of your business. Your It partner can work with you to:

  • improve your business efficiency and flexibility.
  • monitor and maintain your technology and systems.
  • enhance security and compliance.
  • help reduce costs and streamline processes.
  • identify new technologies that can boost your users’ productivity.
