5 Ways to Facilitate Growth with IT Managed Services

IT Services | April 6, 2022

Better. Faster. Stronger. Bigger? IT Managed Services can help with that.  

Growth is an essential component of any competitive business plan. Regardless of the exact details, we feel confident in the assumption that your organization’s long-term forecasts likely include – or, better yet, are reliant upon – some kind of expansion in the near future.  

From increasing staff and raising costs to adding new locations or developing a larger reach, every business wants to grow in one way or another, right?  


However, without some serious support backing you up, fostering and maintaining corporate growth is easier said than done. Expanding your business in a meaningful, manageable way requires meticulous planning, strategic positioning, and, of course, the right tech resources.  

EMPIST can help you get there. Here are 5 ways your business can start facilitating growth with IT Managed Services.  

Scale with the Cloud 

Cloud technology is a growth-minded business owner’s dream. Cloud solutions not only offer a smart, cutting-edge approach to data management, collaboration, and mobility but do so with scalability in mind, too. 

The most common cloud solutions use an “as-a-service” model of delivery, meaning your business only pays for what it needs when it needs it. This model also significantly decreases front-loaded costs by foregoing expensive hardware and installation. With the cloud, getting set up is just as cost-effective as it is efficient.  

What’s more, because of this unique model, cloud solutions are considered an operating expense rather than a capital one. Switching to the cloud for your computing needs can and will free up cash – cash you need to grow – all while providing your team with the tools that they need to get the job done well along the way.  

Trust with Security  

There is no point in nurturing operational growth if you can’t protect your investments. IT Managed Services come complete with exacting cybersecurity solutions intended to keep your data – and your bottom line – safe while you focus on expansion.  

Taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity through Endpoint Detection & Response, active threat hunting, spam & virus filtering, dark web monitoring, and regular security awareness training will put your business in the best position possible to grow safely. Unlike outdated legacy solutions like antivirus software, proactive cybersecurity programs don’t wait for bad actors to strike in order to take action, giving you the peace of mind that you need to push forward.  

Invest with Onboarding 

Don’t settle for growing pains when you could be growing gains.  

A bad onboarding experience is a quick way for growing businesses to lose momentum and increase dreaded turnover rates. IT Managed Services can help you keep employees both new and old satisfied, minimizing losses and improving productivity.  

Relying on an outsourced IT company for your onboarding may seem counterintuitive, but off-boarding these crucial first steps in an employee’s journey will ensure that they have everything they need to hit the ground running.  

Expand with Support  

The truth is that your business can’t afford to be offline. Whether it’s scheduled maintenance, a cybersecurity issue, or simply an outage, IT downtime is incredibly expensive and, at times, deadly to emergent businesses.  

IT Managed Services provides 24/7/365 support to guarantee your systems stay operational in the face of downtime. When issues do arise, Managed Services Providers (MSPs) work tirelessly to quickly resolve the problem so that your team can get back to it as soon as possible.  

In this way, reliable support is essential to your growth. Without it, you run the risk of being taken down by simple, resolvable technology issues.  

Position with Strategy  

An MSP is more than a resource, it’s a partner.  

When you sign up for IT Managed Services, your business not only gains access to the tools within your provider’s arsenal, but to the knowledge, guidance, and assistance of industry experts. These experts can help you position your business technology for strategic and exponential growth in order to help you reach your long-term goals.
