Are you thinking about hiring a Managed Service Provider (MSP) for your organization, but wondering if it is the right option? As a nonprofit with a tight budget, you may immediately think that you can’t afford to hire an MSP. However, hiring someone to manage your technology can actually save your organization a significant amount of money in the long run. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits.
An MSP is a company that provides a variety of IT services. These services can include things like network management, data backup and recovery, and software updates. They can also make sure that your information is secure and that you are compliant with HIPAA, PCI or HITECH standards. The goal of an MSP is to help organizations manage their IT infrastructure more efficiently and effectively.
By outsourcing your IT needs to a team of experts, you can avoid the high costs of hiring and training in-house IT staff. Additionally, an MSP can help you avoid costly downtime and IT emergencies by proactively monitoring and maintaining your network. But be careful, the cost of entering into an agreement with the wrong MSP adds up quickly if you are charged for every repair or service call. Connect Cause works exclusively with nonprofit organizations and offers flat-fee pricing so that your organization will never get a surprise bill if/when something goes wrong.
Another benefit of hiring an MSP is that it can help your organization stay competitive. By having access to the latest technology and expertise, your company can stay ahead of the curve when it comes to things like cybersecurity and data management. Working with improved technology can also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your organization.
An MSP can provide a nonprofit with reliable and cost-effective IT support, allowing the organization to focus on achieving its goals and mission. By handling the day-to-day IT operations, having an MSP frees up a nonprofit’s staff to focus on its core mission. This is precisely why Connect Cause was started, to provide comprehensive and affordable technology solutions to empower nonprofits to fulfill their missions and serve the community with a technology-centric approach.
So, instead of thinking about the cost of hiring an outside IT vendor, ask yourself if your organization can afford not to hire an MSP. With the increasing reliance on technology in today’s landscape, it’s more important than ever to have a reliable and efficient IT infrastructure. By hiring an MSP, you can ensure that your organization has the support it needs to succeed in today’s digital age.
