The Risks Of Not Using Managed Services

Managed services can be a lifesaver for companies who need a flexible, cost-effective solution to IT and cybersecurity. With their scalable approach to IT services, you only pay for the help you need, rather than paying a flat salary throughout the year’s fluctuating periods of business.

We know why so many Aussie companies choose top-level MSPs like Real Innovation Group, but what are the risks of not using managed services?

Let’s discuss the different risks of not using managed services, helping you understand why managed services are the right solution to your IT needs.

Less flexible, less scalable approach

While an in-house IT team is fine for some businesses, it’s simply not the right solution for others. The main reason for this is that hiring an in-house IT team isn’t flexible; you’re paying salaries throughout the entire year, regardless of the actual work that gets done. If your business is 100% consistent and predictable, then we guess this is fine… but is any business 100% predictable? If it were, you probably wouldn’t need an IT team in the first place!

Managed services allow your company to get more IT help when you need it and less when you don’t need it. Not using a managed service means you’re stuck paying a salary when your dollar could go towards other, more pressing areas of business.

Higher costs for IT

That brings us to our next point: higher costs for the same services. Managed IT service providers like Real Innovation Group operate on a pay-for-what-you-get basis. You need 20 IT experts one month? You pay for 20. You only need 5 IT experts the next month? You only pay for 5.

The real advantage here is that you’re likely going to spend a lot less on IT by only paying for the help you need, rather than paying 10 IT workers a salary throughout the whole year.

Hiring the wrong person for the job

Hiring is a huge responsibility – one that comes with a lot of risks. A resume only says the good things about the applicant. While it shows off their experience and qualifications, it doesn’t tell you anything about their work ethic, ability to work in a team or how agreeable they are. If your company places a strong emphasis on working as a team, then managed services have a clear advantage. Your MSP has already done the hard part of hiring experienced, reliable and adaptable staff for you!
