Creating resilience and driving growth through managed services

Growing a business can be a precarious and tricky time, especially within the current climate of economic uncertainty.

Add to this the digital transformation of the working landscape, and it has never been more important for companies to have a robust technological infrastructure that supports new, flexible ways of working along with business development.

It is unsurprising, then, that so many businesses are turning to managed services to provide a robust foundation for growth and flexibility

What are managed services?

Technology roadmap assessment - book now

In a nutshell, managed services enable you to outsource the set-up, management, and support of your company’s IT structure, with many providers also offer aspects such as user services, Cloud services and SaaS. The core IT functions of a company make up the backbone of business systems and processes, with applications like SharePoint being vital to remote and hybrid working, or connecting national and global teams in large or dispersed organisations.

Because of this, companies of all sizes and at all stages of development can reap huge benefits from managed services to support their specific needs. According to the Global Managed Services Market report, the successful implementation of managed services can reduce operating costs by 25% - 45%, along with providing many additional benefits, which include:


Managed services use the best technology and systems available on the market, and are constantly upgraded to keep this offering up to date. Given the huge investment often associated with business IT services, combined with the ever-present risk of them becoming obsolete, opting for managed services essentially means your business will receive the best of what the market has to offer, without the additional costs and risks.


The needs of a business naturally develop as it grows and scales, and this holds true for IT functionality. Upgrading or expanding in-house IT to meet the needs of a scaling business can be both time and cost intensive. Utilising a managed services provider drastically reduces these costs, giving you the freedom to scale at your desired pace, while enabling you to invest into other areas of the business.

Keeping down costs

Implementing cutting edge IT systems alone as a business owner often comes with a hefty price-tag. The managed services model, on the other hand, means a predictable monthly cost without any unforeseen expenditure associated with maintaining your own IT infrastructure. The cost over the life of the contract ensures you receive the best technology for your specific business needs at a fixed rate.

Increased resilience

On average, downtime of IT services costs UK businesses an estimated £3.6 Million each year. Opting for managed services guards against these substantial losses due to them being far more robust and reliable. Additionally, there are added protections when it comes to keeping your data safe, as the network infrastructure and data centres utilised by managed service providers are far more secure than those of a standard business.

Better service

While on the day-to-day level, managed services ensure a continuity of service for core IT operations, on a wider scale they are also far better placed to optimise and improve functionality. By constantly being on the lookout for tweaks to ensure your technology aligns with the specific strategy and performance needs of your business, managed services continue to drive both performance and value in the short and long-term.
