One of the primary benefits of a fully managed MSP is a single point of contact that has resources to cover all the customers’ needs on a 24/7 basis.

The cost of getting the expert skills in all areas of your business in which an MSP offers skills in-house to cover the extended hours can far outweigh the easy and price of outsourcing this.

As most companies mainly operate during normal working hours, it can be tricky to get support for out of hours issues. On top of this, a lot of maintenance work is best carried out at a time it has the least impact effect on users. In other words, it’s better carried out during out of hours instead of having your team clock in lots of overtime or time in lieu.

An MSP, particularly a global one like Columbus, take shifts being on call during all hours. They’ll provide “follow the sun” offerings where support can be 24/7.
