While you focus on your core offering, rely on RedKnot, as your Managed Services Provider (MSP) to help gain efficiency and reduce costs. These triggers may signal a greater need for evaluating whether leveraging Managed Services is right for your Organization:

  • The pace and complexity of change exceed resource capacity levels.
  • Significant change or investment is required to meet the demands.
  • The time needed to develop what is needed internally is constraining short-term performance.
  • Regulatory non-compliance or risk exposures are increasing.
  • There’s an appetite to relinquish control to achieve organizational objectives.
  • The needs, demands and requirements have outgrown legacy processes, systems and functions.
  • Budget constraints restrict needed staffing and support.
