Flexible Solutions That Alleviate The Pressure On Homeworkers

Many employees used to claim they would leap at the chance to work from home, ditching the daily commute and enjoying a more flexible approach to work. The reality has proven to be quite different, however, with fatigue, strained family relations, and eyesight problems being some of the unexpected consequences of the lockdowns.

An MSP offers a flexible solution that can alleviate the stress of managing IT remotely, allowing your employees to focus on value-added tasks and enjoying a more defined structure to the working day. Routine IT tasks, such as data backups, cybersecurity updates, and server maintenance, can be carried out by an MSP, even during out-of-hours, so your staff can clock off on-time and enjoy the work-life balance that is so important to their mental health.

Scalability That Doesn't Compromise On Productivity 

Managed IT services are key to achieving scalability while boosting productivity, especially when large numbers of employees are working remotely. Not only does an MSP offer you increased flexibility in terms of expenditure and equipment (by reducing your business’ dependency on outdated or expensive hardware, for example), but it can facilitate the migration to more efficient technologies. Cloud computing, for instance, can support remote working, improving collaboration between team members even when they’re miles apart.

24/7 Online Protection 

Cybercrime was a persistent problem prior to the global pandemic, but the increase in remote working has simply magnified the issue for businesses. With your IT specialists out of the office, an MSP can take control of your cybersecurity, minimising the risk of your organisation falling foul of the cybercriminals’ efforts to compromise your network.

An MSP will ensure your protection is active and monitored 24/7, including at times of the day when criminals are most likely to target your business. Cloud backups ensure that, in the event of a ransomware attack, your critical data can be quickly recovered, while robust security protocols can be implemented to ensure that remote working doesn’t expose your business to dangers.
