Why We’re Different Than Those Other IT Companies

Why We’re Different Than Those Other IT Companies

Today’s businesses have more technology involved in their processes than ever, making it essential to have access to the support that will keep them in operation. Nowadays, that kind of support is best obtained through a relationship with a managed service provider.

Now, I feel it is appropriate to acknowledge that all this is coming from a managed service provider… but that’s just because we feel strongly enough about the benefits of managed services to offer them over the traditional approach to business IT support and services.

Let’s discuss why we feel so strongly about the value managed services bring to businesses that utilize them for their IT needs.

Understanding Managed Service Providers (MSPs)

Managed service providers, or MSPs, like us are companies that manage IT infrastructure and systems. We offer a wide range of services tailored to each client's specific needs.

We are experts in IT, using advanced tools and technologies to support your network. Our services are scalable, making them suitable for the small and medium-sized businesses of Chicagoland.

Here are some of the key benefits we offer:

  • A proactive approach to IT management
  • Scalable solutions

MSP Benefits for Modern Businesses

In today's digital age, IT is integral to business operations. However, managing IT can be a complex and daunting task. This is where MSPs like us step in. We manage your business’ IT, allowing you to focus on your core operations.

MSPs also play a crucial role in reducing downtime and improving business continuity. We’ll ensure your IT systems are always up and running, minimizing disruptions to your operations.

What Services are Typically Offered by MSPs?

MSPs like us offer network management, cybersecurity, and cloud management services. We can also provide IT consulting and strategic planning and handle routine maintenance and updates, freeing up your internal resources and allowing you to focus on what you do best without worrying about IT.

What Value Comes from Partnering with an MSP?

Partnering with an MSP offers numerous benefits. These advantages can significantly enhance a business' operational efficiency and competitiveness.

Cost-Effectiveness and Budget Management

One of the main benefits of working with an MSP is cost-effectiveness. MSPs can provide high-quality IT services at a fraction of the cost of maintaining an in-house IT team. We offer fixed (and therefore predictable) pricing models based on a subscription, which can help businesses better plan their finances and lead to significant savings in the long run.

MSPs like us also help businesses manage their IT budgets more effectively by providing insights and recommendations based on data-driven analysis. This can help businesses allocate resources more efficiently, improving financial performance.

Focus on Core Business Functions

Another key benefit of partnering with an MSP is the ability to focus on core business functions. With an MSP handling IT, businesses can concentrate on their primary operations. This can improve productivity and efficiency and free up internal resources, allowing them to be used more effectively.

Our team at Preferred will handle routine maintenance and updates, freeing up internal resources. This allows businesses we work with to focus on what they do best without worrying about IT. Moreover, we can help businesses navigate digital transformation, allowing them to stay competitive in the digital age.

Access to Expertise and Advanced Technology

MSPs like us provide businesses with access to expertise and advanced technology. Our team of IT experts is well-versed in the latest technology trends. Therefore, working with us can give businesses a competitive edge and help them stay up-to-date with the latest IT opportunities.

We’ll also use advanced tools and technologies to monitor and manage IT systems. This can lead to improved IT health and performance and other benefits we’ll get more into shortly.

Moreover, MSPs like us can provide insights and recommendations based on data-driven analysis, which can help businesses make informed decisions about their IT strategy.

Proactive Approach to IT Management

MSPs take a proactive approach to IT management. We’ll monitor your IT systems to identify and resolve issues before they escalate, reducing downtime and improving business continuity. It can also minimize IT-related risks and vulnerabilities. We can also play a crucial role in disaster recovery and backup solutions. Preferred will do anything we can to ensure that your business can quickly recover from IT disasters.

Moreover, we can help businesses future-proof their IT infrastructure. We’ll ensure that your IT systems are up-to-date and capable of supporting future business growth.

Enhanced Security and Compliance

Preferred will also play a crucial role in ensuring cybersecurity and compliance. We’ll implement robust security measures to protect you from cyberthreats and comply with regulatory requirements. This can help you avoid penalties and protect your reputation.

We’ll also provide training and support to your in-house staff to enhance their understanding of cybersecurity and compliance requirements and help with compliance and regulatory audits.

Scalability and Flexibility

MSPs offer scalable and flexible IT solutions. We can adapt our services to the changing needs of Chicagoland businesses, helping our neighbors scale their IT infrastructure as they grow and adapt to changing market conditions. Plus, the entire concept of managed services is based on flexible pricing models. This allows businesses that work with us to pay for only the services they need.
