What is Co-Managed IT? [Video]

Co-Managed IT

With the growing demands for business IT, your in-house IT may not be able to keep up. This is where Co-Managed IT comes in and we’ll break it down in this video. 

What is Co-Managed IT

0:00 Introduction 

0:49 What is Co-Managed IT 

Co-managed IT is a service where a Managed Service Provider or MSP partners with your in-house IT team. This partnership helps companies by providing additional hands, specialized expertise, industry tools and strategic guidance – without the huge upfront investment in staff or technology. But co-managed IT does not aim to replace your IT leader or department. It's a partnership, with your internal IT and MSP provider collaborating to add value and fast-track growth. 

2:33 What companies benefit from Co-Managed IT? 

Companies that benefit from Co-Managed IT are those with more than 50 users, enough resources to absorb the investment, a current in-house IT person and opportunities for improvement within their IT department. If your company does not have a current in-house IT person or department or you have less than 50 users, fully managed IT may be a better fit for you. 

3:23 How much do Co-Managed IT Services cost? 

Here at ITS, Co-Managed IT plans range from $100-$200/user per month. But this cost can go up or down depending on the plan you choose based on your IT requirements. 

4:02 How do you buy Co-Managed IT Services? 

The best way to get Co-managed IT is to contact a reliable Managed IT Provider.
