At one point or another, 2020 and its many challenges placed a spotlight on every industry. And yet, no matter where focus fell, scrutiny always seemed to linger on the rising demands of its technological capacity. Companies transitioned to remote work, hospitals rushed to set up telehealth, and consumers were left to adopt it all at a rapid pace. With no choice but to evolve, infrastructure divides formed, service delivery fell, and resources were stretched thin. So how do businesses ensure reliable and devoted IT support in 2021 with current capabilities and diminishing budgets?
Foremost – the notion that companies need to address this challenge alone needs to retire with 2020.
In comes managed service providers (MSP). For years companies have been relying on external IT companies to maintain their infrastructure affordably, so why is this not a widely considered solution? One theory is connected to the age-old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. With industrial complacency, if something is working good enough, companies can be hesitant to make changes that will have a lasting impact on their business, even if it will save them money.
Consequently, the saving grace has been the technology sector. Constant innovation has created a shift in methodology, bringing forth the system of placing and maintaining the infrastructure needed to avoid a break in the first place. Unfortunately, to the average enterprise, implementing and sustaining that level of support is pricey and out of reach. This leaves many with no choice but to simply slap a band-aid on any gaps that form, rather than address the issue at the root. So when there is an economical solution that creates and supports a sturdy technological foundation, why is there such slow adoption?
Frankly, this is because the managed services industry is fighting both the age-old stigma surrounding offloading services and the growing concern of possible separation between employees and the IT support they need – especially in an era of users that are so digitally connected. Luckily, neither of these matters have gone unnoticed. As technology adoption rates increased over the years, the quality and amount of support offered by managed service providers grew with them.
When businesses partner with the right MSP today, they see increased employee productivity, a strengthened IT infrastructure, and easy scalability. Even so, not every provider will aim to deliver the best possible technology support solutions. That is why the best solution is a partnership at the foundation, with your MSP acting as an extension of your own company. Our knowledgeable staff here at Talon work every day to enhance each of our clients’ existing support networks while simultaneously improving their IT efficiency and business profitability.
