Examples of industries that benefit from managed IT services

While businesses in all industries benefit from managed IT services, we’ve highlighted a few examples:


Accounting firms have the responsibility to keep their clients’ data safe. Proactive managed IT services are essential for maintaining data security and compliance and provide continuous monitoring by our team. By outsourcing IT management, accounting firms can focus more on client services, leading to increased productivity and client satisfaction. Managed IT services also offer cost-effective solutions, preventing expensive repairs and enable the adoption of new technologies. With proactive data backup, managed IT services provide comprehensive support, making them invaluable for operational excellence.


Architecture largely uses graphic tablets and computer-aided design (CAD) tools. While these increase efficiency, they also introduce challenges such as malware and malfunctions, leading to project delays. Architectural firms require specialised IT support for this software, data storage, and connectivity both in-office and remotely. Managed IT services offer solutions to improve operations, cybersecurity, and cost-effectiveness compared to in-house departments. They enhance data backup, freeing firms to focus on core competencies while ensuring security and compliance.

Public sector tendering/bid consultants

Managed IT services are crucial for improving public sector tendering, especially in digital procurement. By adopting electronic platforms and automated workflows, local authorities can streamline procurement, saving time and enhancing transparency. Managed IT services centralise supplier management, aiding monitoring and evaluation for better partnerships and decision-making. They also enhance accountability, reducing fraud risks. Automation and compliance ensure high-quality service delivery and optimal resource allocation, ultimately helping local authorities meet evolving community needs.


Managed IT services ensure the smooth functioning of recruitment agencies’ IT infrastructure. With prompt troubleshooting and maintenance, managed IT services maximise system availability, enabling agencies to operate seamlessly . Managed IT also offers robust data security, safeguarding sensitive candidate information and mitigating cyber threats through the implementation of backup and recovery solutions. By staying updated on technological advancements, recruitment agencies can leverage innovative tools and software to streamline workflows and enhance candidate sourcing, assessment, and onboarding processes.
