When business owners and executives first start to seriously consider switching to a managed services agreement for their outsourced IT assistance, they usually do it because they are excited about trading on certain expenses for a regular monthly rate. That makes a lot of sense, and it can be a valuable thing for almost any company.
What they may not realize, however, is that there is another, often-overlooked, reason that managed services can be fantastic for the bottom line.
To understand what it is, think about your relationship with your family doctor. The more often he or she sees you, the better they are able to understand your health history, living conditions, nutrition, major fitness issues, and so on. After a while, it takes a lot less time to diagnose and help you than it would have during your first meeting.
Your IT provider is the same way. The longer you have a managed services agreement with them, the more familiar they are going to become with your hardware and software, not to mention your bottom-line business goals. This familiarity allows them to give you better advice and service on an ongoing basis – you become more valuable to each other as a client and IT provider.
