Executives in the Construction industry have target goals focused around revenue growth through new projects and the success of those in progress. Leaders can significantly free up time and focus on core strategies to support growth and stretch budgets further by outsourcing, part or all, of their IT and security operational responsibilities, including IT End Point/Network/Data Security, and Physical Security (Video Monitoring) with a Managed Services Provider (MSP). The solution is finding a partner that is focused on the specific needs of the Construction vertical market. There are three immediate key benefits to take advantage of through this type of strategic partnership.
Benefit 1: Lower Your Total Cost of Ownership
Leveraging standardized cloud-based operational technologies allows Construction companies to lower their total cost of ownership. This includes lower capital investments across corporate and job sites. Other markets have been migrating to cloud-based systems for years, achieving lower costs. Our program enables you to take advantage of these same principles, yet meet the unique needs of corporate and on site at the project level, including the ability to easily on and off board jobs without a gap in IT security.
Benefit 2: A Managed Services Program Lowers Risk
A Managed Services Provider brings people, process, and technology standards supported by a Service Level Agreement. In other words, an ongoing programmatic approach that makes sure technical standards and security policies set by corporate are carried out in the field. This approach prevents degraded standards, downtime, shadow IT projects, and it decreases the digital security threat footprint. Having standards through a managed services program alleviates these risks.
Benefit 3: Increase Employee Efficiency with Flexibility
Leveraging the cloud allows employees to operate from any location, with the functionality of being in the office. Cloud solutions create a highly accessible and secure environment to efficiently accomplish all project related tasks, remotely, while being backed by IT Service Desk support. Employees who are on site or working remotely can quickly access desktops, email, project software and all documents such as drawings, plans and invoices, which significantly increases productivity.
A managed services provider can remotely manage these systems to ensure the highest uptime, often detecting and fixing issues before they happen. Outsourcing the critical IT and security functions frees up time so you can shift your full attention to staying competitive, while creating and executing on strategic initiatives to fuel growth across your business. Construction executives can then become hyper-focused on core objectives to catapult growth and expansion into current and new markets while employees benefit from an increase in their productivity.
