What is a Managed Service Provider? An MSP (Master Server Platform) is a networked server used to deliver complete network services, including mail services, backup, applications, and monitoring to clients from a centralized location. With the help of an MSP an organization can implement IT infrastructure in an efficient manner, thanks to the help of a well-experienced service provider. If you are looking for a company which provides managed services to your business through an Exchange Server, you should contact us for an accurate quote and information.
There are different types of managed service providers, one of them being Microsoft Exchange Server. When you opt for a managed service provider to manage your Microsoft Exchange Server, you can easily integrate it with the Microsoft Exchange Server, thereby reducing the deployment and maintenance cost of your company. Through an MSP you can have centralized access to all your mailboxes, contacts, calendars, emails, tasks, and attachments. This type of managed service provider also reduces the complexity associated with implementing an Exchange Server, as everything will be handled in a single location, without affecting the efficiency of the different departments and entities within your organization.
As most organizations use Microsoft Outlook, installing Microsoft Exchange Server on your own could prove to be problematic. Most companies who are already running their email service on their own IT infrastructure, would find installing and integrating with MS Exchange Server to be complicated and time-consuming. So, most of them tend to outsource this task to a third-party company or an in-house MSP. However, there is a high risk involved with this practice, as there are many third-party hosted Microsoft Exchange Services such as Microsoft Exchange Server hosted, which may not have the capacity to support some advanced features and Microsoft Exchange Server may not support some of the older versions of Microsoft Outlook such as Outlook 2000 and earlier.
If you are in need of remote support for Microsoft Outlook, and are not too worried about backward compatibility, then you could consider going for a managed service provider (also know as Microsoft Exchange Server integrator). These types of providers usually offer Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Outlook as well as other Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Excel. With a managed service provider hosting your email, calendar, contacts, files, and other items, you don’t have to worry about managing all these items on your own. You just have to contact the provider who specializes in offering remote support for Microsoft products such as Outlook, and get everything set up.
The advantages of using a remote support company include: reduced costs, greater flexibility, ease of remote management, security of sensitive data, ability to work from anywhere, and improved productivity. Remote support from a managed service provider can be very useful if you are planning to expand your business by offering your existing customers technical support for their Outlook programs. If you want to make further improvements to your Outlook program, then you can integrate it with new services such as MS Exchange. This way, your customers will be able to access your e-mail in a more convenient manner. There are even some MS Exchange Services that allows you to integrate your Outlook application with Microsoft Sharepoint.
It is important to note however that not all managed service providers offer the same service. Some MS Exchange Services are more proactive than others when it comes to fixing issues that occur within an organization’s network and/or software. To ensure that your organization will have access to the best services at the most affordable costs, you need to do some research. Some managed service providers charge per hour while others charge a flat rate fee for the hours used. You could also try a proactive service such as one that offers real time monitoring of your organization’s network and software.
Another option that you could look into would be a managed service provider who uses a proactive notification method wherein it sends a text message or an email to your employee if they exceed their software licenses. Microsoft Sharepoint applications and Microsoft Office applications use software licenses to run. Once these licenses expire, the software will cease to operate. With this method, a service provider could make sure that your employees are aware of software expiration so that they could take proper action when it happens. For instance, if they know that they are going to run out of license within six months, it would be easy for them to buy a license before that happens so that they can continue working.
Microsoft Sharepoint is considered by many small businesses to be the de facto communication tool in the workplace. This is because of its capabilities such as allowing users to create websites, share documents, videos, images and various other items through one centralized location. However, some businesses still prefer to have their own websites so that they could manage their company information and data from the comforts of their homes. For these small businesses, a managed service provider that employs a proactive licensing program such as the one mentioned above could prove very helpful.
