Just What is the Value of Managed IT Services?
Tune in below as Nick Morgan talks with General Informatics CFO, Mark Comeaux, about managed services from a financial perspective. Specifically, they’ll discuss how General Informatics helps businesses save money while simultaneously extending their IT department and keeping hardware/software up-to-date — the ultimate value of the spend.
How has the IT industry changed over the past 30 years?
In the past, companies had a fully-staffed internal IT department. In contrast, companies today have evolved to outsource some (or all) of the IT disciplines to companies like General Informatics.
What is the root cause of this change?
The short answer: return on investment and the value of the spend. The value and reach of the resources received from a Managed Services Provider (MSP) is 2-3 times greater over direct hires. General Informatics has a team of over 70+ engineers encompassing a vast range of specialties. Therefore, all your IT needs are taken care of by a single service partner.
How does an MSP impact capital expenditures?
Technology is constantly evolving, requiring upgrades on servers and hardware, and companies must invest in these upgrades every 2-4 years. However, this expense is absorbed by an MSP, allowing businesses to allocate those dollars to invest in their core business.
