What is a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?
Imagine having the ability to leave your office every evening, knowing that the security and continuity of your company are in good hands. That's how our clients feel when they take advantage of iCorps Managed Services.
MSP stands for Managed Service Provider. MSPs provide IT services to businesses, like network monitoring, data backup, and software updates, and can even serve as the business's IT support team. MSPs make it possible for small to medium-sized businesses who don't have the resources to hire an in-house IT team to ensure their IT needs are met, so they can focus on the other essential parts of their business.
Six Benefits of Using an MSP
- Cost Savings
Hiring an MSP can be more cost-effective than hiring an in-house IT team. An MSP provides the same services as an in-house team but at a fraction of the cost.
MSPs have a team of experts knowledgeable in the latest technologies and trends. Businesses can benefit from the latest technology without investing in training their staff.
MSPs scale their services to meet the needs of the business. Businesses can add or remove services as needed without hiring additional staff.
MSPs provide businesses with the latest security measures to protect their data and systems, including firewalls, antivirus software, and other security measures.
MSPs provide businesses with dedicated and reliable IT services. Companies can rely on their MSP's IT services to be available when needed.
- Strategic Guidance
MSPs provide businesses with strategic guidance to help them make the best business decisions, including advice on technology investments, IT infrastructure, and other IT-related decisions.
