In life, timing is everything, and the same can be said when you’re looking for a new IT partner. As highlighted in our latest blog The Importance of Time And Working With The Right IT Partner mitigating the risk of changing suppliers by simply staying with a supplier, even when disappointed with their service, is a risky strategy.
As well as being unhappy with your current supplier there are many other reasons to want to change your IT partner, for example:
- Moving to a new site or expanding your current site.
- Expanding globally and needing 24/7 support, across different time zones.
- A disruptive event, for example a security breach, that leads you to review your current contract.
- The need to find an IT expert in your industry, not a generalist.
Finding a contract that is accurate for your business needs, with the right MSP, is important and there are a number of steps to consider.
This video from experts within our team gives you all the knowledge you need to ensure you are considering everything when looking for that new IT partner.

The question of price.
Price will always remain a key factor to consider when you reach the point of making your decision. We would always recommend getting an understanding of the pricing structure and asking whether it’s per ticket, ad-hoc or unlimited. You will want to avoid the scenario where you are being overcharged or where you employees are unwilling to call for support due to being worried about being charged.
Moving to a new managed service provider doesn’t have to be a difficult and time-consuming task and most IT partners will be happy to give you an office tour to help you make that final decision.
