Leading IT Consultant Educates Business Owners on Using a Managed IT Services Provider with Comprehensive Guide
DENVER, Colorado, March 17, 2023 – Microsoft Consultant and Managed IT Services Provider PEI announced today the launch of an incredible new resource on its website. The updated page, titled “A Complete Guide to Managed Services Providers,” contains everything business owners need to know about outsourcing some or all of their company’s IT demands.
After explaining what a managed services provider (MSP) is, the page delves into the ins and outs of working with one. From sharing why businesses might need an MSP and then listing the benefits of using one to evaluating the state of the industry today, the guide addresses both the day-to-day aspects of using an MSP and the “big picture” dynamic that comes with delegating tech essentials.
“As a leader in the field, PEI is always striving to provide the best possible value, and this applies not only to our clients but also to business owners everywhere,” said Tim Krueger, PEI’s President and CEO. “Publishing valuable resources that are readily accessible and easily digestible showcases this commitment.” He continued, “We dedicated a lot of time to crafting this guide, and we hope it helps those who are on the fence about hiring an MSP to proceed with confidence.”
PEI understands that small and midsize business owners are used to wearing many hats. To protect their bottom line, they handle as many of their operations in-house as possible. Consequently, enlisting help from a managed services provider in IT is a major turning point that’s hopefully indicative the company is growing.
Deciding when and how to hand off an organization’s tech management to a third party poses several challenges. In revamping this guide, PEI hopes entrepreneurs can gain the insight needed to recognize when it’s time to bring in an MSP and then navigate the transition seamlessly. With that in mind, the guide addresses all of the following:
- The History of MSPs
- The Types of MSPs
- What to Expect in the Way of Pricing from MSPs
- What to Look for (and What to Avoid) When Comparing MSPs
- Platforms MSPs Are Equipped to Manage
- The Kinds of Plans MSPs Offer
