Breaking Down the Numbers: Will Switching to an MSP Actually Save You Money?

Let's face it, when you're running a business, one of your closest companions is the calculator. Everything comes down to the bottom line. But here's a question for you: Have you ever considered how much you might save by switching to a Managed Service Provider (MSP)? In this blog, we'll break down the reasons why partnering with an MSP like Myriad Services could be one of your best financial decisions yet.

Unpacking the Real Expenses of IT

Before we even discuss the potential savings, it's crucial to get a full picture of your existing IT expenses. Many businesses only scratch the surface, considering only obvious costs like hardware and software. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Add in the expensive, often unplanned IT support and downtime, and you might find yourself confronting a surprisingly hefty sum.

The Domino Effect of Downtime

Downtime isn't just an inconvenience; it's a cascading problem that affects various aspects of your business. Let's say you experience a two-hour outage affecting a team of 30. Not only are you paying for those lost man-hours, but you're also losing out on potential productivity. If we factor in how downtime can impact staff morale and client relationships, the true cost of IT disruptions starts to come into sharp focus.

To quantify it: Take the number of affected team members, multiply that by their hourly wage, and then multiply that sum by the hours lost. But don't stop there. Consider the hit to employee morale, which can lead to further inefficiencies. And don't forget the potential impact on client relationships, which can have long-term revenue implications.

When you begin to see the full scope of IT-related costs, you realise the immense value in proactively managing these aspects of your business.

Proactive is the New Reactive: Stop Problems Before They Start

One of the hidden costs in IT management is the investment needed to fix unexpected issues. The old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," fails to consider that when things do break, they bring along a hefty bill and hours of downtime. That's where we step in, transforming the old reactive model into a proactive approach by continuously monitoring and managing your systems.

Our primary aim is to ensure your business thrives, and that means catching issues before they escalate, saving you both time and money.
