For small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs), employee productivity is crucial to success. This is especially relevant in New Jersey, where small businesses comprise almost half of the workforce. The less manpower available, the more important it is that employees pull their own weight and wear several hats at the same time. But if manpower shortage isn’t addressed over time, it can lead to overworked and unhappy employees.
Because many SMBs use technology, it’s not surprising that they require their employees to have a bit of basic IT knowledge. This is because SMBs typically have an IT department of just one or two people servicing the whole organization; they cannot be everywhere at all times. Everyone has experienced troubleshooting an IT problem on their own, whether it’s their desktop refusing to switch on or figuring out how to activate a video conferencing app. Having rudimentary IT knowledge is another hat most employees are asked to wear.
This is where a managed services provider (MSP) like Online Computers comes in.
What is an MSP?
If you’re an SMB, think of an MSP as your outsourced IT department and more. You enjoy the services of a full IT department, except they’re not taking up space in your office.
Your MSP oversees your IT system via the web. They manage your office email, hardware and software updates, sales inventories, company websites, and customer relationship management software. They can even provide hardware and software, if needed.
