7 IT Services Your Business Should Outsource

As a business owner, your time is invaluable, and handling technical tasks can distract you from your primary objectives. Outsourcing these complex IT tasks can save you time, money, and stress.

Here's a guide on key IT services you should consider outsourcing to a managed service provider (MSP).


Protecting your business from cyberthreats requires expert knowledge; we do not recommend doing it DIY. With the growing sophistication of cyberthreats, basic antivirus programs are no longer enough.

Professional cybersecurity services offer comprehensive protection through advanced measures such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and regular security audits. This helps your business stay protected against data breaches and cyberattacks, giving you peace of mind.

Technical Support

Technical support is essential for maintaining productivity. When technical issues arise, they can cause significant disruption and frustration for your staff.

Outsourcing technical support allows employees to focus on their work rather than troubleshoot problems. An MSP provides a dedicated team to resolve issues quickly and efficiently, minimizing downtime and keeping your business running smoothly.

Backup and Recovery

Data backup and recovery are critical for any business. Gone are the days when you could rely solely on a simple USB drive for backup. An MSP can develop a comprehensive backup and recovery plan tailored to your needs, including real-time backups and fast restoration capabilities. This ensures your data is safe and can be quickly restored if lost, minimizing downtime.

Hardware Procurement

Acquiring new hardware can be daunting, and it's easy to get lost in a flurry of specifications. MSPs can manage hardware procurement, ensuring you get equipment that integrates well with your existing systems.

Whether upgrading desktops, getting laptops for new hires, or installing printers, MSPs use their expertise and vendor connections to bring you competitive prices and warranties. They also handle the setup, ensuring everything works seamlessly from the start.

IT Vendor Management

Managing multiple IT vendors can be time-consuming and complex. MSPs handle vendor relationships and contract negotiations and ensure service-level agreements are met. By outsourcing vendor management, an MSP will make sure you receive the best service and value from your vendors.


Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) offers advanced features that enhance the customer experience, such as auto-attendants, call forwarding, and voicemail to email. However, setting up VoIP systems correctly requires expertise. MSPs provide these services at competitive prices, ensuring you get the best setup and functionality.

IT Budgeting and Investment Planning

Effective IT budgeting and investment planning are vital for maximizing your return on investment. An MSP helps align your IT budget with your business goals, advising on the best technologies and services to invest in. Strategic planning ensures your IT expenditure goes further.

Outsourcing these essential IT services to a managed service provider allows you to focus on what generates revenue. Let's have a chat and see what technical problems we can take off your plate.
