Streamlining your business services is a process that will increase and improve your organisations efficiency, productivity, and ultimately your bottom line.
The best way to do this is to utilise a managed service provider (MSP). This is a third-party company who is usually able to provide several business services such as communications, IT, security and BCDR. This will be through various simple solutions, all managed by the MSP.
In doing this, they can deliver an array of business benefits that can help you to boost your organisational efficiency and your wider business goals. Discover the advantages of streamlining your business services and how it can make a huge difference in the current climate …
THE BENEFITS OF STREAMLINING YOUR BUSINESS SERVICES
SAVES TIME & MONEY
All businesses look for ways to reduce costs, and most organisations find it difficult to do this when paying different providers for multiple services.
But by streamlining your business services through one service provider you can not only save money, but you can also save your company a lot of time. This means you can focus on tasks that will grow your business rather than on issues that hinder it.
You will receive one itemised bill that includes all services you use, this saves time and hassle when compared to reconciling multiple invoices from multiple suppliers.
By using one MSP, your business may also be entitled to additional discounts which you can utilise to make even more savings on your business services.
GAIN EXPERT ADVICE
By using one service provider to streamline all your business services, you gain first-hand expertise from highly qualified staff, saving you the hassle and cost of recruiting internally to support your business services.
The benefit of having all your services managed by one provider, is that you get consistent support across all areas of your business.
Whether that be for telephony or security, you’ll have one number to call and one provider to approach, meaning any issues get resolved easier and quicker and you are not left in the middle of two suppliers blaming each other.
SECURE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE
It’s vital that businesses deploy the correct security procedures to protect their organisation against any threats. If you take the services offered by an MSP, you are better protected as MSP’s usually offer better protection on their networks, so you’ll get more assurance that your data is safe and secure.
Streamlining your business with an MSP also means you have industry professionals assisting you with your business infrastructure, which can help reduce preventable errors and long delays, so you can pro-actively prevent them and avoid disrupting business continuity.
Downtime can be extremely costly, and is usually the result of equipment breaking, cyber breaches, application failures or even human error. With a reliable MSP on board though, issues are handled quickly and efficiently with minimal downtime.
MSP’s routinely monitor business systems to prevent any unexpected downtime, that could result in your business being unable to operate. They will use remote monitoring which allows them to analyse and diagnose problems so they can rectify an issue before it impacts business performance.
They also usually recommend businesses to implement tools which help manage disaster recovery, so that you’re able to back up your business infrastructure in case of a major malfunction.
Streamlining your business services through one provider can improve resource allocation. It’s likely that with effective planning, an MSP can offer more organisational structure and solutions that will prevent downtime, so less time spent talking to multiple providers on the phone trying to resolve issues. Employees can spend more time focusing on their jobs, which will improve productivity, resulting in better business results.
Listening to the advice from the MSP around better, more equipped technology, will enhance business systems and the speed in which tasks can be completed, which means staff can work when it suits them, increasing flexibility, resulting in better efficiency for your business!
A successful partnership with MSP, will consist of regular contact with your provider where they will give feedback and propose a plan of action to proactively manage your business services.
