10 Benefits of Using Subscription-based IT Services for Your Business
Enlisting the help of a Managed Service Provider for your IT needs is becoming increasingly popular. Here are 10 reasons why.
Have you noticed there seems to be a subscription for everything these days? In the good old days it was just things like magazines, newspapers and the occasional jelly of the month club. But today just about anything comes in subscription form—clothes, makeup, dinners, wine, pet items. The list goes on and on.
And it’s not just individual subscriptions. Increasingly, companies are opting in to the subscription-based services mindset as well. They are saving themselves time, money and hassle by enlisting the help of a Managed Service Provider (MSP) to take care of their IT needs. It’s estimated that in 2019, managed services spending could account for nearly 20% of total IT spending worldwide.
Companies, no matter what size, can discover the following 10 benefits of subscription-based services.
Benefit No. 1: Enhanced Customer Service. Subscription business cultivates an ongoing and close-knit relationship with customers. Managed services allows for consistent, cohesive engagement throughout the relationship, across all functional areas.
Benefit No. 2: Cost Streamlining. Using a subscription means the company can unload significant in-house investment of infrastructure and equipment onto the managed IT provider.
Benefit No. 3: Customized Plans. Providers can create unique plans and adjust their offerings to reflect actual usage. It is no longer necessary to pay for capacity you don’t utilize.
Benefit No. 4: A Safer Environment for Your Data. The most innovative cybersecurity tools in existence reside in the Cloud. Under subscriptions-based services, you can keep your data safer than ever before.
Benefit No. 5: Fixed Regular Expenses. With subscription services, you won’t have to guess what your future costs will be. Providers can help tailor these fixed expenses to fit your budget—costs won’t change mid-contract and that have the potential to lower with longer terms.
Benefit No. 6: Centralized Expert 24/7 Infrastructure and Support. Subscription options enable clients to access support for applications, servers and every other IT need that already exists in the Cloud—a key reason so many companies are moving.
Benefit No. 7: Faster Response and Recovery Times. When utilizing a subscription-based service, you have the potential to get up and running in the event of an interruption—or after a disaster—with minimal downtime.
Benefit No. 8: Ease of Scalability. The flexibility of a subscription allows your IT support to grow as your business does.
Benefit No. 9: Increased Employee Productivity. As a result of reduced network and application downtime, your employees can get more done.
Benefit No. 10: Less IT Pressure. Technology is only getting more advanced. Using a subscription-based service can help alleviate the stress a company may feel to keep up with the capabilities required in this increasingly complex area.
