How to maximise the value gained from your current Managed Services provider

Are you considering outsourcing your IT requirements to a managed services provider? You might be doing this already or at the very least considering doing so at some point in 2023. 

If you are, it’s vital that you have some awareness of the benefits that they can give your business so that you can maximise the value of using a managed services provider. 

In addition to this, it will help your existing employees to avoid having to complete repetitive IT tasks that could be completed by a managed services provider. 

In our latest blog article, we will show you just a few of the main services that managed services providers can provide that you may or may not have heard of. 

Maximise your Microsoft 365 licensing 

The vast majority of businesses use a range of different Microsoft 365 products that we all know and love such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint & many more. However, it is a regular occurrence where businesses don’t understand all of the features that their licensing allows them and how to use them in the most efficient way. 

This is where a managed services provider such as Advantage can help you to understand the benefits you can gain from your license and adjust it in whichever way works best for your business. 

Eliminate overspending on software expenses 

One of the other ways in which a managed services provider can help is to adjust free features in Microsoft 365 so it works the way you want it to be by putting into operation the Microsoft Defender Antivirus that is included as part of your Microsoft 365 licensing. 

You will find that many businesses are continuing to spend money on extra security licenses as they don’t even realise that they already have one included within Microsoft 365. Better still a managed services provider such as Advantage could help you to save money that you might have otherwise spent on security licenses you didn’t even need! 

Put into operation less well-known functionality 

If you didn’t know this already, a managed services provider can also help you to make use of Microsoft 365 features such as Intune to help make managing devices much easier for your business. 

For those that don’t know what Microsoft Intune is, it is a cloud-based service that helps enable your workforce to be productive while keeping your corporate data protected.
