With more and more businesses taking a hard look at the cost of running their iT operations, savvy IT managers and CIO’s are looking at near-term and long-term strategies that can help cut costs. One way to do it is to work with a knowledgeable provider of managed IT services. Doing so can generate huge savings.
A recent study by CompTIA, the non-profit association that covers the IT Industry, finds that companies using IT managed services get big cost benefits as a result. According to the study:
- 46 percent of managed IT service users have cut their annual IT costs by 25 percent or more
- 50 percent of managed IT service users have cut their annual costs between 1 percent and 24 percent
“This is compelling evidence that managed services, even when implemented on a small scale, can deliver significant cost savings, freeing up cash for other business needs,” said Carolyn April, director, industry analysis, CompTIA. “More importantly, these savings are accomplished without impacting the availability and reliability of the technology solutions the company relies on to conduct business.”
But costs savings aren’t the only benefit you get from using a managed IT services provider. You also eliminate the need to manage the day-to-day operations of your system. That, in turn, frees you up to focus on core business activities and to do what you do best—working with your customers or clients.
Additional benefits of managed IT services include access to professional IT staff, predictable spending, faster response time, tighter vendor management, and peace of mind.
