MSPs Must Prepare for the New Normal

The spread of coronavirus has changed life as we know it, and for businesses, remote work has become essential to continuing operations. But now, we’re seeing various states start lifting lockdowns.

So what does this mean? Will businesses rush back into the office or continue to embrace remote work? Well, from what we’ve seen, it’ll be some sort of hybrid with most companies planning to have some employees in the office while others work from home. This allows them to benefit from having the best of both worlds while maintaining social distancing.

What’s going to change with reopenings?

As businesses reopen their doors and embrace a hybrid approach with some employees in the office while others work from home, we’re bound to see some interesting changes:

  • More masks, hand sanitizer, and physical distancing
  • Reconfigured workspaces
  • More touchless equipment
  • Limits on the number of people in the office

But most of all, many organizations will be transitioning from internal to outsourced technology departments. Why? Because cutting costs will be integral during the economic downturn we’re facing. Outsourcing ensures:

  • Costs associated with managing technology are reduced with no need to pay salaries, benefits, and more.
  • Systems, processes, and procedures are set-up properly with the resources needed to ensure business contingency.
  • Ongoing support continues with access to an entire team of professionals as opposed to relying on a small team.

MSPs must be prepared for an influx of interest from local businesses, and in addition, MSPs must be prepared for businesses having different requirements as we enter a new state of normal. This includes reconfiguring workspaces, incorporating touchless equipment – from hand dryers to door openers, and of course, keeping some of their workforce remote to maintain social distancing.

Right now, it’s more important than ever before to become a strategic advisor. This means finding resources for touchless equipment, personal protective gear like gloves and sanitizer, and of course, cloud solutions that offer anytime, anywhere access to data, applications, and systems.

Are you prepared to offer cloud solutions?

If you’re not offering cloud solutions to help those you serve work remotely, it’s time to start. Your clients will need the ability to pick up and head home in an instant – while still maintaining access – whenever necessary. Ready to take advantage of the new normal? Let’s discuss how you can position yourself and your business as the leader in technology services for the markets you serve.
