Managed IT Services Colorado Springs

When it comes to running a safe and successful business, Owners and CEO’s have three choices; hire an in-house IT team, partner with an IT service provider like us, or ignore IT altogether. Businesses that last do not ignore IT, which is exactly why you have landed on this page! That leaves two choices, hire an in-house IT Team or partner with an IT service provider. So, what is the best choice? The answer: it depends on your business structure, risk assessment, and budget!

A bare-minimum in-house IT department should be comprised of three roles: an IT Manager, a Systems Administrator, and a Help Desk Agent. Using data that shows the average salary of each of those positions for the Colorado Springs area in 2023, an annual payroll commitment of $245,475 is required to add an in-house IT department. Keep in mind that does not include training, employee turnover, and retention efforts. And most importantly, the above estimate did not include a security expert! Does this make partnering with an IT Service provider the better option? Let’s crunch the numbers below!

Why Jenta Tech?

For small and medium size businesses with less than 1,636 users (employees), investing in IT through a Managed Service Provider is mathematically the most cost-effective way to build an IT team without cutting critical corners. The flexibility of our flat-rate billing method means that your IT department grows linearly with the size of your company, ultimately freeing up cash flow and allowing the business to invest in other areas.

For enterprises with over 1,636 users, utilizing a Managed Service Provider is ideal when stability, retention, and uptime are critical. Although building an in-house IT department is a great option, businesses that elect to do so run the risk of being stuck in technical-purgatory if and when employees move on to other opportunities, regardless of the reason. Replacing a six-figure IT Manager or System Administrator is no quick venture, and this downtime can leave your enterprise critically vulnerable, which also stretches into the training period of the new employee. For ultimate stability a proactive and documentation heavy Managed Service Provider is the best option for any sized business in the Colorado Springs region and surrounding areas.
