Did you know 1 in 4 small and medium-sized businesses have lost revenue due to an IT-related problem? It’s enough to keep you up at night. This year, give yourself the gift of peace of mind with managed IT. And it’s not just a gift for you – but for your employees and clients as well.

Managed IT in a Nutshell

Let’s tear away the wrapping paper and take a closer look at this shiny present. With managed IT, you outsource some or all of your IT operations to a Managed Services Provider (MSP) that specializes in everything from cybersecurity and cloud to tech planning and end-user support.

What do you get with an MSP like Elevity?

Planning: Evaluating your needs and developing a plan that aligns your IT with your business goals.

  • Technology roadmap
  • Strategy & vision
  • Life cycle management
  • Risk assessment
  • Vendor audits

Protection: Ensuring your systems are safe from internal and external threats.

  • Managed firewall
  • Antivirus
  • End user training
  • Risk management
  • Backup & disaster recovery
  • Network security
  • Malware protection

Productivity: Improving efficiency and streamlining workflows while giving your employees the tools they need to communicate and collaborate.

  • Office 365
  • Cloud communications
  • End user support
  • Email protection

Performance: Minimizing downtime and ensuring optimal performance.

  • Network Operations Center (NOC)
  • Remote monitoring & management

Your IT impacts every aspect of your organization – customer service, data privacy, data security, profitability, efficiency, growth, and more. By helping you put the right technology solutions in place and delivering dependable support, managed IT positions you to become more secure, more cost-effective, and more successful.

Stop IT Pain Points

A great gift is one that meets your needs, brings benefits all year long, and makes your life easier. That’s precisely what managed IT does.

SMBs face a number of technical pain points as revealed in a recent Datto report:

  • Security issues: 79%
  • Technical support and maintenance challenges: 79%
  • Increasing complexity of IT: 72%
  • Rising cost of IT: 72%
  • Compliance issues: 66%
  • Multiple clouds/technology stacks: 62%
  • Skills gap internally: 60%

These are some daunting concerns. But managed IT is up to the challenge. In fact, many businesses have decided to outsource their IT for those very same reasons according to the report:

  • Increasing complexity of IT: 54%
  • It’s more cost-effective to outsource: 54%
  • A skills gap internally: 45%
  • Security issues: 40%
  • Outdated systems: 27%
  • Compliance issues: 27%
  • Need for multiple clouds /technology stacks: 26%

Supporting the Workforce of the Future

COVID-19 forced many businesses to pivot to more remote work. As we move past the pandemic, companies expect a more even combination of remote and in-office workers in 2021.
