How To Grow Your Business With a Managed Service Provider
As a business looking to grow, you’ll want to spend time strategising and stress testing internal systems to ensure they are scalable.
Expanding your business in an ever more competitive market is a challenge felt across all your departments. However, the unsung heroes of business expansion are often your IT department, as they are at the forefront of keeping your business network secure and systems running.
From potential data breaches to digital threats, your IT department fends off intruders to safeguard your business network as well as dealing with day to day support issues and requests as they arise.
As you grow larger, you will also have to update your business disaster recovery plan, so that you have the required backup solutions.
How an MSP Will Help
When developing new strategies to accelerate business growth, you have to make arrangements to ensure that your IT department is equipped with the right tools to deal with the new pressures bound to come their way. This is why partnering with a managed service provider (MSP) will be a huge help as you can fortify and streamline business processes while improving efficiency.
At Redpalm, we have compiled a list of reasons to show you why working alongside an MSP like ourselves will allow you to grow your business.
Let’s take a look!
Take The Stress Out of Growing Your Business
Your IT department is likely more than capable of taking care of all existing in-house technology requirements. However, as you position yourself to grow and expand, you might expect your IT team to manage additional tasks and projects as they extend tech support to your employees over and above their routine IT responsibilities.
While your IT department might be happy to take on more responsibility, you run the risk of overwhelming them with the additional tasks. This will eventually extend the time it takes to get work done which, by extension, will also hamper your plans of growth.
Instead of burdening your in-house IT department, you can enhance business scalability and growth by leveraging the adept IT abilities of a managed service provider.
When you work with Redpalm as your dedicated MSP, you can scale your business effectively as you achieve the following benefits:
Efficient Project Management
Simply put, growing your business means taking on more clients and projects. Taking on more responsibilities means you will need new workstations, IT infrastructure, servers and contractors, which for an in-house IT team may become overwhelming to manage on their own.
As experienced managed service providers, our team at Redpalm has the necessary tools to make project management easier. This means you can then focus on business scalability as we take care of your technical needs and update your IT disaster recovery plan.
As your MSP, we will be the single point of contact for your team as you introduce new processes, technologies and team members.
Improved IT Support
As you grow your business, you will likely need offices at new locations which means you may consider hiring an additional IT team for tech support. On-boarding a brand new team means allocating time and resources for recruitment, training and payroll, among other expenses. Instead of dispensing precious time and resources into building a new support team, you can simply partner with an MSP and eliminate the additional hassles.
As your dedicated IT service providers, we have the necessary staff and tools to extend an increased level of support as you concentrate on business scalability. Instead of managing a whole new team, you will be working with a single point of contact who keeps you posted on the latest developments.
Cost-cutting On Future Equipment Procurement
Vendor relationship management is a time-consuming process. Luckily for you, the managed service providers at Redpalm have existing equipment vendor relationships that you can benefit from directly. This means you not only save precious time but also valuable financial resources as you expand your operation.
As your dedicated managed services partner servers, firewalls, switches, workstations and any other IT equipment you need to expand your business can be purchased at discounted rates. The savings you make in the process can then be used to further your scalability as you take your business to the next level.
Inclusive IT Coverage and Support
With increasing technological advancements becoming more intricate, managing software and hardware in-house is exceptionally challenging. As a modern business, you need to have innovative unified endpoint management solutions that integrate hardware and software, as well as facilitating uninterrupted business networking and the flow of information for internet, intranet and extranet.
As seasoned IT professionals, Redpalm is more than equipped to deal with such technicalities all year round meaning you don’t have to worry about the health of your IT systems.
When you partner with us, you will never have to worry about your internal team being on sick leave or away on annual holidays. Our team of IT experts work round the clock to ensure your business is up and running at all times as you keep ahead of the curve.
