MSP Outsourcing and Co-Managed IT

As the world becomes increasingly more dependent on technology, every industry must evolve to meet the changing business demands of the 21st century. Technology is what keeps business marching forward. This means that every company must prioritize its IT infrastructure in order to remain strong and secure now and into the future. However, tackling IT management alone can be a daunting task for any organization. Luckily, services like MSP outsourcing and co-managed IT support are there to make the task of IT management easier. 

Understanding MSP Outsourcing and Co-Managed IT 

MSP outsourcing and co-managed IT are both services that can prove very beneficial to organizations when it comes to saving money and improving overall efficiency. While both services have a lot to offer, they have some key differences that companies should be aware of before getting started.

MSP Outsourcing 

Essentially, a managed service provider, or MSP, looks after all aspects of an organization’s IT. This means that a company’s IT help desk and other IT services are completely handled by the service provider’s team. Managed service providers often provide services such as hardware, software, management of data breaches and cybersecurity, and much more.

Choosing MSP outsourcing is ideal for companies that don’t want to spend time and money on training internal staff to take on additional responsibilities regarding IT. 

Co-Managed IT

In comparison to MSP outsourcing, co-managed IT is a service where a company’s in-house IT staff work cohesively with an outside service provider. In a co-managed IT approach, it is common for the service provider team to handle complex IT projects for a company, while the in-house IT staff gains more time to devote to strategic IT projects for the company.

Choosing Co-Managed IT would be a great fit for someone who wants to keep their in-house IT specialist on board, but also wants to benefit from the extensive knowledge and background outsourced IT professionals have to offer.

Envision Consulting

Envision Consulting

We started Envision Consulting for businesses that share our passion for building long- term and healthy relationships. While we might be technology experts, we’ve always known that trust, reliability and looking after a client’s best interest are paramount to succeeding in business. But in 2001 and to this day, there were few managed IT providers available that embodied our customer-centric values. There were countless support companies more interested in reacting to issues than paving the road forward for clients, making it far too difficult to build long-term relationships. We felt a strong pull to make something different, and we did.
