Benefits of Outsourcing IT to One Single Vendor

We’ve discussed the advantages of outsourcing specialized IT tasks for businesses. However, it’s important to note that outsourcing to multiple vendors is not always the best approach. By entrusting specific IT functions to a single managed service provider, businesses can find many benefits.

Improved Security

Security should always be a main priority. Choosing a single vendor to serve as both a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) can provide an integrated approach that eliminates blind spots commonly associated with managing multiple vendors. The integrated approach is suggested to provide a higher degree of visibility into the IT infrastructure, enhancing overall awareness and control.

Easier Communication

Consolidating IT services under one single provider can also help streamline communication channels. By minimizing the number of vendors to communicate with, businesses can reduce potential complexities associated with multiple vendors. The single-vendor approach enhances the strategic alignment between the business and the vendor which leads to a better understanding of business challenges, objectives, and technological needs.

Faster Service

Time is of the essence for businesses, and being able to receive a quick and effective resolution to your needs is vital. By outsourcing your IT requests to one managed service provider, you can expedite the resolution process. For instance, with multiple vendors, each specialized vendor may have its own set of support request procedures, but with one single managed service provider, this process is condensed. 

Better Cost Efficiency

Putting all your “IT eggs” in one basket can even lead to cost savings. Having one vendor eliminates the need to manage multiple contracts from vendors, can make for easier negotiation and often offers bundles for various types of technology for extra savings. Overall, a single-vendor approach not only streamlines operations but also provides cost savings through favorable terms.
