Who Needs Managed IT Services?

IT Director at ScienceSoft

The obvious answer would be any company without an in-house IT team that still needs to guarantee the smooth functioning of its IT infrastructure. But it doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from working with an MSP even if you have full-time or part-time IT experts. The beauty of managed IT services is flexibility and on-demand scalability. You can outsource only one IT direction (say, help desk or DevOps) or even a single role that’s missing from your team. At ScienceSoft, we have plenty of experience working on split-responsibility projects where our experts collaborate with the client’s IT team or other MSPs.

IT Director at ScienceSoft

A good managed IT service provider is your strategic partner.

An MSP is not just an alternative to an in-house IT department that manages your daily IT operations, though it’s already a huge workload off your shoulders. A good managed IT company is your strategic partner and can significantly optimize the cost and efficiency of your IT by driving small and large changes, like improving network latency or embracing demand-driven cloud computing.

Benefits of Hiring a Mature MSP

Cost savings

Likely, you don’t need a large team of full-time IT specialists to manage your infrastructure. With an MSP, you pay only for the actual work done and can easily scale the team without the lengthy hiring process.

Access to diverse expertise

Depending on your needs, ScienceSoft gives you instant access to a broad pool of IT experts equipped to solve your unique problem, be it software defects or security vulnerabilities.

Round-the-clock support

ScienceSoft provides teams that cover different time zones, night shifts, or holidays to ensure reliable support regardless of the date or time of day.

Uninterrupted services

A mature MSP will take full responsibility for uninterrupted service delivery, meaning the work doesn’t halt if an employee calls in sick – an MSP will quickly provide a substitute.

ScienceSoft Answers Frequent Questions

Is it really more cost-effective to hire an MSP than have an in-house IT team?

  • Working with an MSP, you get access to the whole IT expertise this company has. Just imagine how many IT employees you need to hire full-time to get an equivalent.
  • Let us recall potential days of absence of your in-house employees and say that outsourced managed support is uninterrupted.
  • Managed IT support works for the prevention of serious IT disruptions. For you, it means not only uninterrupted business processes but also your peace of mind.

How can we be sure of the security of our business data if we give access to our software to a third party?

You should choose an MSP with a rigorous approach to data security. ISO 27001 certification, a globally recognized information security standard, is a quality mark for such an approach.

Are there any hidden fees in managed IT services?

There is an SLA for you not be bothered with such worries. An SLA ensures the transparency and cost predictability in managed services as it puts on paper the scope and frequency of services provided by an MSP.

Is it possible to have all-around managed support fully remotely?

Basically, yes. As a company providing professional managed IT services, ScienceSoft monitors remotely almost all IT components: software, networks, data storages, security tools, cloud services and apps. The only component that we can’t cover remotely is hardware.
