How often do you look at your email solution and think, “Wow, managing this thing takes up so much of our time. What would it be like to take that time and apply it elsewhere?” Today, businesses have all kinds of options for managing their email communications, one of which is email hosting provided through a managed service provider.
Your average business might host an email management system in-house on their own servers, and while this does have its benefits—like having control over the security of said system—the same issues that come from server management can also linger. For example, you need to keep the hardware and software updated, and you also need to protect it with adequate security solutions. Furthermore, you also must maintain the hardware to ensure that it doesn’t fail, and you need to find a way to keep the climate in the room under control so the device does not overheat and create further problems for your business.
Accessibility is also an issue that businesses must address, so unless your system has cloud capabilities, chances are your employees will be limited to the office environment for access to their email. Factor in the need for security and data backup, and you have quite a lot of work on your hands, all for your email system. Unless you have someone managing this for you, like an in-house IT department, you’ll likely find it difficult to keep up—especially for a small business.
You do have options, though, one of which is working with a managed service provider and have them host your email system. You won’t host your email infrastructure in-house; rather, you’ll rely on us to take care of hosting for you. We absorb the responsibilities of managing and maintaining the system for you so you can focus on running your business. This is wonderful assets for small businesses who often struggle to attract and retain IT talent.
SMG Business Solutions wants to help your business keep its email systems up-to-snuff. We can host your system for you so that the laundry list of responsibilities above doesn’t impact your day-to-day operations.
