The Cost Of Not Working With An IT MSP (Managed Service Provider

Not using an IT Managed Service Provider can incur many risks for your company or organization. At Crystal Equation, our IT managed services include data operations, database engineering, data services, and business intelligence platform integrations and management. Each of these services brings so much value to the security and efficiency of your company, and there are many costly consequences of not using an IT MSP. If your company is tired of these flaws with your current system, contact Crystal Equation today to discuss the best IT management solutions.


Lack of Expertise

The technology landscape is constantly changing, and keeping up with these advancements can be a challenge for organizations without the support of an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP). Failing to stay current with technology can result in missed opportunities for your business, such as the adoption of new tools and processes that could improve efficiency and productivity.

Increased Down Time

Downtime is a major issue for any organization that relies on technology to run its operations. Without the support of an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP), you may experience more frequent and prolonged downtime, which can have a significant impact on your bottom line.

When technology systems are down, employees are unable to work, leading to a loss of productivity. This can result in missed deadlines, lower output, and reduced customer satisfaction, which can all harm your reputation and lead to financial losses.

Data Security Risks

Cybersecurity threats are a growing concern for organizations of all sizes, and without the proper security measures in place, your organization is at increased risk for cyber attacks, data breaches, and other security incidents. These incidents can have serious consequences, both financially and in terms of your organization's reputation.

For example, a data breach can result in the loss or theft of sensitive information, such as customer data, financial information, or intellectual property. This can result in significant financial losses, such as the cost of providing identity theft protection for affected customers, as well as damage to your organization's reputation if customers lose trust in your ability to protect their information.

Higher IT Costs

Working with an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP) can help you save money on IT services, compared to managing IT issues in-house or with less experienced service providers.

When you manage IT issues in-house, you may need to invest in additional hardware and software, as well as hire additional staff, to keep up with the demands of your technology systems. This can result in higher costs and an increased workload for your existing IT staff.

Inefficient Processes

When your organization doesn't have the support of an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP), it can lead to inefficiencies in your IT processes. This can result in higher costs, lower productivity, and increased downtime.

In the absence of an MSP, your IT staff may struggle to keep up with the demands of your technology systems. This can lead to missed opportunities, delayed projects, and decreased productivity. For example, without the support of an MSP, your IT staff may need to spend more time resolving technical issues and less time on strategic projects that can drive your business forward.

Using direct hire staffing with Crystal Equation is more cost-effective than traditional recruitment methods. Hiring a candidate to fill a long-term and technically challenging position can take up all of your HR department's time, and their time is money. Pulling higher-level managers to help interview candidates is even more costly as those managers have to carve time out of other important tasks.


Working with an IT Managed Service Provider (MSP) can provide your organization with a number of benefits that can help you minimize costs, improve efficiency, and enhance security. Contact Crystal Equation today to learn more about how our IT managed services can help your business thrive.
