Managed services are the solution to various problems, while providing cost savings, freeing the burden of technological obsolescence and enhancing the reach of companies.
- Deciding for a partner instead of a supplier, the great challenge
- SAs also offer advantageous tax deductions
Managed services represent an excellent alternative for companies to obtain substantial advantages, from the incorporation of digital platforms that trigger interoperability and provide more reliable reports.
Despite the fact that in 2017 there was a contraction in the investment of Information Technology (IT), there were four areas where the contribution of financial resources increased, and one of them was precisely the contracting of managed services.
According to what has been published in Reseller Comunicacion Magazine , the various benefits include a faster return on investment –in view of the fact that it is not burdened with technological obsolescence–, considerable savings in human resources and, even, significant tax deductions.
While the digital transformation promotes dynamism in companies and helps them to remain competitive in an increasingly demanding market, managed services enhance them by giving them greater security as they strengthen information management protocols.
Moreover, they have the versatility necessary to offer solutions tailored to the requirements of each business, and by their nature can develop at the same pace as it does, which optimizes costs and operating expenses.
However, one must be very cautious in selecting and hiring the company that offers such services. In this regard, an article in Forbes Mexico magazine makes a couple of simple recommendations to make the best choice: it is essential to find a tailored service provider that provides the ideal solution and not a host of alternatives. Many providers provide services focused on the management of data analysis, business intelligence and monitoring of advanced applications, although first it is worth asking here if “my business really needs all these solutions”.
The second recommendation of the publication establishes the following principle: “Hire a partner, not a supplier”, who must know your needs, assist you in real time and, most importantly, handle a lot of sensitive information about your company.
