December and January are the perfect months for changing Managed Service Providers (MSPs). During this time of year, many businesses are busy setting goals for the new year. This is the time to ask yourself if you’re getting the most out of your current MSP.
If the answer is maybe or no were not, then perhaps a classic pros and cons list could be a good place to start. Begin by identifying what your pain points are, then take the second step and evaluate potential replacements. Another good place to start is by polling your staff to find out if they have concerns about the service they are receiving from your current provider. If the answer is yes or, it could be better, it’s probably time to consider a change.
At this time of year, organizations can request proposals from different vendors, compare costs and services, hold informative conversations with potential vendors to discuss options and see how the services will address the organization’s needs. Furthermore, the holiday season offers plenty of downtime that organizations can use to read reviews and research MSPs, as well as take their time when making decisions. Finally, the ability to utilize the holiday season to change MSPs allows businesses to plan and execute the transition so they can start the fiscal year with a fresh start.
We all love a fresh start. Take advantage of the downtime during this time of year and use it to evaluate the options for your business. Not sure where to start?
