Managed Service Provider vs In-house IT person?

Feb 23, 2023

There are several benefits of using a managed service provider (MSP) instead of an in-house IT person, including:

Access to a team of experts

With an MSP, you have access to a team of experts who specialize in various areas of IT, such as security, network administration, and software management. This means you don’t have to rely on a single individual who may not have the skills or expertise to handle all of your IT needs. As they say, the jack of all trades is a master of none. This holds very true in IT.

Cost savings

Hiring an in-house IT person can be expensive, as you have to pay for their salary, benefits, and training. With an MSP, you pay a fixed monthly fee for their services, which can be more cost-effective in the long run. Our clients pay less for our decades of experience and a 24/7 team of experts than a single qualified candidate.

In addition to the personnel cost savings, MSPs are able to offer higher end software and services because they leverage bulk purchasing. While we purchase endpoint security and other licenses in bulk, a single business would pay a much higher, retail rate per license. 


An MSP can quickly scale their services up or down based on your changing needs, without having to worry about hiring or firing employees.

Reduced downtime

MSPs typically offer 24/7 monitoring and support, which can help minimize downtime and ensure your systems are always up and running.

Increased security

MSPs are well-versed in cybersecurity and can help protect your organization from cyber threats, such as hacking, malware, and phishing attacks.

Focus on core business functions

By outsourcing your IT needs to an MSP, you can focus on your core business functions, without having to worry about IT issues or managing an IT department.

Overall, using an MSP can provide several benefits for organizations looking to streamline their IT operations and reduce costs.
