It Matters Who You Choose

Initiating your search for managed IT services online, you will find a plethora of options, including network monitoring, cybersecurity, regular maintenance, and cloud management. A deeper look reveals that a Service Level Agreement (SLA) details the specific services a managed IT service provider (MSP) commits to providing and the associated costs. However, when searching for local MSPs, the multitude of choices can be overwhelming. The question arises: where to start? How do you select the ideal technology partner? And what should your expectations be?

According to Gartner, MSPs generally offer services such as:

  • Data backup
  • Management of business and productivity applications
  • Cloud-based infrastructure
  • Network monitoring
  • On-premise device management
  • Endpoint and network security
  • Management of cloud-based applications
  • Mobile device management
  • VoIP/telephony

These services may be provided at your location, within an MSP’s data center, or at a third-party facility. Yet, selecting the right MSP goes beyond just the services offered. It’s important to consider the mindset and approach behind these services. Do they focus solely on technology, or do they also consider the human aspect—those who will utilize the technology? Understanding what to anticipate from your managed IT service provider is essential for making an informed decision.
