The key benefits of IT managed services are that: the system will be built to suit the company’s current requirements and the company will only pay for what they require; the service provider will provide continuous on-site oversight and guidance, as well as remote management capabilities where necessary; the company will only pay for the services that they need; and the provider will ensure that all aspects of the project are managed effectively and in a timely manner.
