One common question for organizations is how much does managed IT services cost? There are many factors in the price of a Managed IT service provider, but there are also many common factors that affect baseline price.
Many organizations feel overwhelmed with their IT technical support problems. In that case, the organization may consider hiring another company to assist. Managed IT service providers (MSPs) are companies that manage other organizations IT infrastructure.
Global IT service spending is estimated to reach 1.1 billion dollars according to Gartner. Managed IT Services costs vary from $25 to $250 per user/device per month.
A good managed IT services provider can provide a quick estimate on how much managed IT services will cost you however they should offer a complimentary network assessment to evaluate several parts of your organization.
The complimentary network and security assessment should cover these areas:
- Identify current technical support and IT infrastructure issues
- Evaluate current IT infrastructure, cyber security practices, and history of the IT network
- Identify the organizations “wants” regarding technology, cyber security, and future company growth
- Produce a custom plan and proposal based on your organization
Like a good IT department, this will create a solid foundation from day 1 when entering a long-term partnership with a managed IT services provider.
The goal for a managed IT service provider is to exceed expectations, offer locked in prices, and make IT reliable.
As a baseline, an organization can estimate how much they will spend on managed IT services based on five key factors.
Managed IT services provider (MSP) prices are affected by five factors:
- The required amount of service time
- The number of users
- The number of servers
- The amount of data
- Changing needs
Here are some hidden fees a managed IT services provider may have hidden or not revealed unless asked. Lower costs do mean a different quality of service or non-enterprise-class tools.
- New computer setups are an additional charge.
- They will cap the number of hours per month, anything extra is billable.
- You will only have access to level 1 and level 2 technical support, level 3 technical support will be extra.
- They will look at locking you into a multiyear managed IT services agreement.
- All software services will be extra or come with an additional cost such as anti-virus.
- They will charge for every item on your network including firewalls, network switches, printers, etc.
- They are not federally certified under CyberSecure Canada
All these items affect the pricing for monthly managed IT services. If you compare a flat fee company that includes everything in their monthly managed IT services compared to another managed IT services provider that gives you the bare minimum and make everything an extra cost, the flat fee company will be more cost effective over the long run.
A good managed IT services provider (MSP) perform a complimentary assessment, break down their services in different clearly in a proposal, and be able to clearly cover their plan to offer your organization proactive managed IT services.
