However, as time progressed computer manufacturing grew to large scale, leaving the small IT dealer to focus less on manufacturing and more on break/fix. This system was time consuming, labor intensive, costly and reactive. It did not allow the technician room to grow their business or take on new clients without massive investments in labor and infrastructure.
However, managed IT services do not necessarily make the enterprise IT professional obsolete; for the end user, an IT professional can act as an endpoint liaison that manages the relationship, provides feedback and analyzes the reports provided by the MSP. Because the majority of routine work is being completed by the MSP, the IT professional is capable of greater efficiency and has the flexibility to tackle larger, more complex projects they would otherwise not have the time or capacity to take on.

"The biggest thing for me is that, while I'm away from the office and working on other projects, I haven't had to worry about the network. There have been a couple of occasions where issues happened, and [TPx Communications] has been able to resolve them without my involvement, other than just being notified. As far as I'm concerned, that does everything that I want it to do." — IT Systems Manager, Audio-Visual Company
A managed IT services provider (MSP) is most often information technology (IT) services provider that manages and assumes responsibility for providing a defined set of services to its clients either proactively or as the MSP (not the client) determines that services are needed. Most MSPs bill an upfront setup or transition fee and an ongoing flat or near-fixed monthly fee, which benefits clients by providing them with predictable IT support costs. Sometimes, MSPs act as facilitators who manage and procure staffing services on behalf of the client. In such context, they use an online application called vendor management system (VMS) for transparency and efficiency. A managed service provider is also useful in creating disaster recovery plans, similar to a corporation's. Managed Service Providers tend to prove most useful to small businesses with a limited IT budget.

KDG was hired by a liberal arts college to redo the client's website using WordPress and create a mobile site. KDG supplied the client with full design, development, and hosting services, even as it continues to monitor and maintain both websites. KDG's work awarded its client a B+/A by the National Research Center for College & University Admissions, and the website would have earned higher marks but for budgetary constraints.
Cloud computing has allowed managed IT services to extend beyond the regions and borders that would constrain the average break/fix IT through the adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies, as well as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service(PaaS). These capabilities enable managed IT services to scale at a rate dramatically larger and faster than in-house IT operation or break/ fix providers.
MSPs utilize a broad range of IT expertise to resolve issues efficiently. Unlike break/fix providers, MSPs can employ the latest processes and software to proactively monitor endpoints, keeping systems up-to-date and preventing issues before they arise. Managed IT services are also available 24x7x365, allowing end users to take nights and weekends off while the MSPs do the heavy lifting on tasks and processes done after hours.
