How Much Do Managed IT Services Cost?

Apr 2, 2021

When it comes to tech support, businesses have a plethora of options. Most of these don’t come cheap, but you could save a lot of money if you chose the right approach.

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to managed service providers, also known as MSPs. Every company has different needs, so prices will differ.

Here’s what you need to know about managed IT before asking for a quote!

Per Device VS Per Person

You can decide which package fits you based on your number of employees and devices.

Always keep in mind how the prices will change as your company shifts. As you grow, so will the number of people or devices that need to be managed.

Tiered VS À La Carte Pricing Models

If you already know what your business needs, the À La Carte pricing model will let you pick individual services. These selections cost more, but you won’t be paying for services that you won’t use.

If you’re unsure of what you need, a tiered pricing model with different packages is a great middle-of-the-road choice. Keep in mind that packages that don’t include certain services could leave you open to risks. Or you may pay extra for options that you’ll never use.

Fully Managed Services VS Remote Helpdesk Support

Want to cover all of your bases? As far as IT consulting & strategy goes, your best bet is to pick fully managed services. This allows you to avoid hiring an in-house IT team, which costs significantly more than hiring an MSP that will take care of your hardware and software both proactively and whenever there’s an issue.

On the other hand, remote helpdesk support helps with day-to-day problems. If your team bumps into a problem, the MSP company will provide remote assistance.
