Everything You Always Wanted to Know About a Managed Service Provider but Were Afraid to Ask… well, Almost everything.

What is a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?

A managed service provider (MSP) is a company that is responsible for the day-to-day tasks or services that it takes to keep your network up and running.  An MSP will traditionally manage and monitor an organization’s computers, servers, router, switches, wireless devices and any other system required for their IT infrastructure to work. Typically, an MSP also provides help desk services and support, like having an on-site IT technician.


One major advantage of an MSP over an on-site tech is the amount of expertise and experience. MSPs hire and train high-level support technicians that are able to provide support to clients. Instead of a single tech’s skills, your company has multiple techs available with a variety of skills and years of experience. This equates to savings, responsiveness, and efficiency for your company.

Many MSPs offer a flat rate, subscription style support service. This provides a predictable cost center. Not only is the cost involved with having an on-site tech pushed to the MSP, the service provider will also provide utilities and tools as well as training for the techs that would otherwise fall to the client.

MSPs should be making use of best-in-class tools and utilities to ensure that the service provided is top notch.

How this Works

The MSP should start things off by scheduling a site survey- a thorough review of systems and procedures that are already in place in your company. This will allow the MSP to be certain of what they are getting into, set expectations for the potential partner and to find opportunities that can help the client run smoothly and save money. Additionally, the MSP should use this assessment to discover any challenges this potential partner may be facing such as cost reduction, limiting vulnerability \ liability, system restrictions, etc.

An MSP should function as an extension of your company… as a partner. This relationship brings extreme value to the table and adds to organizational success.
