How to get the maximum benefit from Managed Services Partnership 


In this article, we’ll cover the basics of managed services and how you can get the most out of them. We’ll explore what they are, what they’re good for and how they can help your business.

Recruit an Experience Provider

Now that you’ve chosen your technology and have an idea of the scope of your project, it’s important to make sure that the provider you’ve selected has the experience to deliver on all three.

  • Is this a provider with experience in the industry?
  • Can they speak to past projects similar to yours?
  • Will they be able to meet your business size needs (and grow with them)?

Use a rolling strategy for renewing discounts

In the same way that it’s important to review your Managed Services Agreement on a regular basis, you should also consider using a rolling strategy for renewing discounts. This means that instead of waiting until your current agreement has expired and negotiating from scratch, you can ask for an extension of your discount or new terms with the same supplier.

A good time to do this is when you’re already in touch with them about another matter—for example, if they’re looking at providing additional services or upgrading their systems. This means there’s less chance they’ll turn down your request out of hand.

You should also take this opportunity to discuss any changes in circumstances since signing up, such as:

  • New staff members who need training (and therefore support)
  • New equipment purchases or upgrades (and therefore maintenance)

Build up your MSP network

If you’re a small business owner, you can benefit greatly from the services of an MSP. An MSP is a Managed Services Provider—a company like Cisco Meraki Dallas that specializes in providing IT support to small businesses by taking care of many day-to-day tasks that most companies would otherwise have to handle themselves. These services include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Network monitoring and repairs
  • Backup services
  • Data storage solutions
  • Server management and maintenance

Align your business with your supplier’s objectives

The first step to getting the maximum benefit from your Managed Services Partnership is to align your business objectives with those of your supplier.

To do this, you need to understand what services they can offer and how they can help you achieve your business goals. The following are examples of some common ways that an MSP’s services can help you:

  • Helping you get more out of your IT budget – An MSP can help with short-term projects such as infrastructure upgrades or implementing new technologies; long-term projects such as developing a new website or migrating systems; and ongoing management activities like security monitoring. By using an MSP instead of hiring in-house staff, you’ll be able to get more out of every dollar spent on IT without having to hire additional staff or maintain expensive equipment in house.

MSPs can help you reduce hiring costs and build strong relationships with staffing agencies and suppliers.

An MSP is a great partner for your HR team because they already have an established network of candidates from which they can find the best employees for your business. They can also help you deliver a high quality of service to your clients by finding top-notch contractors who will be there when needed and are efficient at their jobs.


As we’ve shown, MSPs provide a lot of benefits to businesses that are looking to save on costs and boost their efficiency. However, there are also some challenges that can arise from working with an MSP. Before signing up for an MSP provider, take some time to consider what you need from them and whether this type of partnership will be beneficial for your business.
