Essentially, Co-Managed IT is a three-way partnership between your leadership team, your internal IT group, and your Co-Managed IT service partner.
Your Co-Managed IT service partner works to make your internal IT department look good. They handle the tasks your internal IT team doesn’t specialize in and let them focus on more important duties as well as the ones they’re best at.
Co-Managed IT providers can also supplement your IT department by offering the hardware and software they need to scale-out operations, manage systems more efficiently, and better secure your critical data.
A proactive Co-Managed partnership like this can reduce a lot of stress on business owners. Knowing that you have the back-up of an entire group of well-trained technicians without the huge price tag (if you had to hire them yourselves) allows you to focus your time on growing your company - and not just maintaining day-to-day operations.
