Managed service providers (MSPs) are essentially your outsourced IT provider. They are becoming increasingly popular as businesses look for ways to improve their IT infrastructure and reduce costs. However, choosing the right MSP is crucial to the success of your IT projects, and there are several things to consider when appointing a new MSP.
1. Services offered: The first thing to consider when appointing a new MSP is the services they offer. Different MSPs offer different services, so it’s important to find one that meets your specific needs. Consider the types of services you need, such as cloud computing, cybersecurity, data backup and recovery, and help desk support. Sysflex IT include all of the services you need into one low monthly payment.
2. Experience and expertise: The experience and expertise of an MSP are also important factors to consider. Look for an MSP with a proven track record of working with businesses similar to yours. They should have the knowledge and expertise to provide the services you need and should be able to demonstrate their ability to deliver on their promises. Sysflex IT can act as your IT support provider but also as your IT manager when required.
3. Security: Another important thing to consider when appointing a new MSP is security. Make sure that the MSP has robust security protocols in place to protect your data and systems from cyber threats. Sysflex IT are Microsoft Partners and they are also Cyber Essentials certified.
4. Scalability: As your business grows, your IT needs will also change, so it’s important to find an MSP that can scale their services to meet your changing needs. Look for an MSP that can provide flexible and scalable solutions, so you can easily add or remove services as your business evolves. Whether your business as 1, 100 or 1000 employees, Sysflex IT are able to assist you and help your business grow.
5. Cost: Cost is always a key consideration when choosing an MSP. While cost should not be the only factor in your decision, it’s important to find an MSP that offers competitive pricing. Look for an MSP that provides transparent and predictable pricing, so you can budget for your IT needs. We keep our service levels high, and costs low here at Sysflex IT.
