Assessing Your Technology with a Managed Service Provider
Many small to mid-sized business do not have their own IT department or the capabilities to maintain their network infrastructure in-house. That’s where managed service providers come in. The right MSP can be a game changer for your company. They can help streamline your technology so that you worry less about failing computers and more about doing the work that you do best!
Performing an Assessment
The start of your work relationship with a managed services provider begins with a full assessment. This is so that your MSP can clearly understand your business needs. Before they delve into the matrix, however, your IT solutions provider will sit down with you to determine the main issues your company experiences and what goals you would like to achieve. With that in mind, your MSP will take full stock of your infrastructure. From routers to computers, network to storage, they will use all of this information to paint a picture of how your technology functions. From there they can make adjustments as needed to reach those aforementioned goals.
When it comes to managed IT services, a single onboarding is not what we would consider long-lasting. The nature of technology is that it is always changing, even your business will grow and develop over time. From new products to new employees, your MSP will need to keep in direct contact with you throughout your entire business relationship. This means that onboarding is a continuous effort to ensure that your services are always top of the line.
