Co-sourcing: Why You Should Combine Your Internal IT With Managed Services
Published on June 3, 2021
When you’re running a small company, it’s not practical to get additional resources to meet your changing requirements.
Even when you already have someone to manage tech tasks for you, ensuring operational efficiency can be a challenge. At this point, you’ll wish you sought help sooner.
To make sure that nothing falls through the cracks, many organizations co-source some of their IT functions to a managed service provider.
Co-sourcing leverages you with a low-cost, highly trained technology partner who can help you get things done your way. This leaves your internal IT team to focus on the highest value projects for your company.
In this article, we’ll show you what co-sourcing is and why we are your reliable partner in delivering your critical tech requirements.
What is co-sourcing?
Co-sourcing allows companies to use an MSP’s resources to run, manage and secure their infrastructure daily.
That means that your internal IT staff still has complete control over operations; the managed services provider supplements the infrastructure and additional manpower that are costly to have on your own.
By co-sourcing certain IT services to an MSP, you not only free up your time. You also reduce operating costs (OPEX).
