Is your law firm faced with unpredictable IT costs? Overextended IT staff? Compliance risks? You may want to consider outsourcing your IT. Making the decision to work with a managed service provider (MSP) can result in less downtime, better control of your IT costs, and less security risks for your business.

Predictable Cost

If you’re looking for predictable spending, look for an MSP model that offers all-inclusive, simple cost-per-user pricing. With outsourced IT models such as this, you get industry experts, cybersecurity, top-notch customer service, and no surprise expenses at the end of the month. With an entire team of experts behind your firm, you can get your IT-related issues resolved quickly resulting in less downtime for your firm and its employees. Your business will get all the necessary support it needs at one predictable cost and the technology and tools needed to run more efficiently.

Cybersecurity and compliance 

Law firms today must contend with the ever-changing landscape of compliance and securing sensitive data. No matter how big or small your firm is, taking on compliance can be a massive undertaking. MSPs like Calyx have the knowledge and manpower to assist law firms in remaining protected from internal and external threats or data breaches. Some MSPs may also have the ability to offer your firm’s employees cybersecurity training and education on malware and phishing attacks, adding one more layer of protection to your business.

Focus on what matters most- your practice

Whether you are an office administrator or the firm owner, your firm deserves your full attention. Dealing with downtime can result in wasted hours and a loss of productivity which take away from your bottom line.  Outsourcing your IT with the right technology partner can allow you to do what is most important, focusing on your practice. The right outsourced IT vendor will do all the heavy lifting for you so that your firm and its employees can work with less hassle, risk, and disruption.
