What Is a Managed IT Service Provider?

To answer the question “What is a Managed IT services provider?” we must start by answering the question, “What is a managed service provider?” 

A managed service provider (MSP) is a third-party organization responsible for managing part of another organization’s operational workflow. Businesses, nonprofits and government agencies hire MSPs for services like managing communication networks, information technology (IT) infrastructure and security systems.

So with that said, Managed IT service providers, or MIT providers, are third-party organizations responsible for managing another organization’s IT infrastructure. 

LDI Connect: Let Us Manage Your IT 

As a Managed IT provider, LDI Connect’s primary responsibility is to manage and support your IT infrastructure so that you have more time to focus on driving your business forward. We like to think of ourselves as a “proactive partner” who monitors systems, applies patches, protects against viruses and ensures backups are performing successfully. We’ll catch and fix the little problems before they become big ones, often before you’re even aware there’s an issue.

Why Should I Outsource My IT?

If there’s one certainty in IT, it’s that things are uncertain. Computers crash, software doesn’t work as it should and problems occur. And when they do, how you respond can be the difference between a minor hiccup and a full-blown business interruption. Whether you have an in-house IT department or not, outsourcing your IT services can help safeguard your IT environment and ensure you have everything needed to keep your business up and running in an emergency. 

What Are the Costs of Managed IT Services?

Managed IT costs are typically divided into pricing models: per-user and per-device.

  • Per-user pricing models cover all of the IT needs of a user, regardless of the number of devices they use. Prices typically start at a flat fee of around $100-$150 per user per month. 
  • Per-device pricing models charge an individual fee per device, including desktops, tablets, mobile phones, printers, copiers, and servers. The average price for the per-device plan can range from $10 to $100 per month but quickly rises as users add more devices.
