Why do I need an MSP?

Fixed and Predictable Spending

Investing in your internal IT department can be costly, with rapidly fluctuating prices as your business grows. However, when you outsource your IT services, your expenses will be consolidated into a single fixed cost. Managed Service Providers such as Southwest Technical Support operate with fixed monthly rates that you can easily calculate into your operational budget to avoid unexpected expenses.

Lower Operational Costs

Hiring an in-house team to manage your IT systems means your company will face significant operating expenses, including salaries, benefits, insurance, and the costs associated with providing office space for IT staff. Your company may also lose time and money teaching staff members about your company’s existing systems and processes. If these staff members leave your company, you must repeat this training. When you outsource your IT department, you’ll reduce these significant human resource expenses and costs, adding value to your business.

Proactive Monitoring Services

A Managed Service Provider will proactively monitor your IT systems to catch any early issues before they become serious problems. Our advanced security monitoring services may include threat detection, content management, and threat intelligence. MSPs such as Southwest Technical Support will respond quickly to reduce downtime for your company and ensure business continuity.

Improved Cybersecurity

Outsourcing your IT services lets you improve cybersecurity and reduce the risk of sensitive information leaks. Many managed IT solutions will put security strategies and practices in place to ensure your business complies with all security standards. Such services may including data & document security, IT security solutions, cybersecurity, and intelligent video surveillance. MSPs such as Southwest Technical Support also provide security awareness training programs for employees to insulate businesses against cyberattacks.

Reduction of Business Risk

All business investments involve some degree of risk, such as financial conditions, changes in technology and changing regulations and market conditions. Outsourcing your IT services will significantly reduce typical business risks. Your business will have experts at the ready who know your industry and will be able to assist with any security and compliance concerns.
