Many businesses hire managed service providers (MSPs) to get the IT hours, resources and expertise they need to function.
Outsourcing some or all of IT can allow businesses to eliminate or reduce the need to pay for in-house IT employees and the many expenses that come with hiring full-time positions.
Many MSPs offer an all-or-nothing approach, working only with clients that sign up for fully managed IT services. That means the business outsources the entire IT function to the vendor. But, many companies don’t need or want to outsource all of their IT needs. Some just need extra support for their already established in-house IT departments.
That’s where co-managed IT services comes in. This kind of arrangement allows businesses to bring on only the IT resources needed and nothing more.
