With the advent of information technology, the service industry has more coverage when it comes to customer-reach. However, the services rendered are not as sustainable and this has caused a growing concern among corporate clients. Managed Service providers particularly in the IT industry should adopt sustainability and reflect these measures through their business model and the service they provide.
Working in the service industry for more than 10 years, I have to say that just stating that you have a strategy for sustainable facility management will no longer be enough, IT Managed Services Providers (MSP) will also need to prove that they can actually deliver sustainable services and support, this is easier said than done.
With more firms relying on services partners to meet sustainability objectives, here are 5 routes (While there are many), I believe IT MSP’s can take, to expand client partnerships through sustainable initiatives. (In reference from actual activities we’ve already initiated specifically for BEQUIK Information Solutions Inc. Managed Services)
1. IT MSPs can develop and navigate sustainable services strategies
As IT Service Providers, it is important to recognize that clients will look to us to help mitigate the risk of IT assets depreciation. IT assets, such as hardware and software, are critical components of many businesses, and their depreciation can have a significant impact on a company’s bottom line.
To help clients mitigate this risk, IT service providers can offer a range of services, such as regular maintenance and updates to ensure that IT assets are operating at their maximum potential. We can also work with clients to develop a lifecycle management plan that takes into account the expected lifespan of IT assets and plans for their eventual replacement.
Ultimately, IT service providers that can help clients mitigate the risk of IT asset depreciation will be seen as trusted partners in the industry. By offering a range of services and solutions that address this risk, we can help clients to achieve their business goals while minimizing potential losses due to IT asset depreciation.
With Bequik’s Managed Services, we see to it that we implement proactive measures that mitigate these risks. Our regular health checks whether via remote or on-site ensures not only we mitigate these risks but more importantly keep our client’s IT infrastructure functioning optimally and secure always, all the time. By identifying potential issues and vulnerabilities before they become major problems, our clients can avoid costly downtime and ensure that their IT systems are providing maximum value to their business.
2. Clients will look to IT MSPs for sustainable ways to help mitigate the risk of IT assets depreciation
As sustainability becomes an increasingly important factor in business operations, clients will indeed look to IT MSPs for sustainable ways to help mitigate the risk of IT assets depreciation. By implementing sustainable practices, we can not only help clients to reduce the risk of IT assets depreciation, but also contribute to a more sustainable future for all.
To help clients mitigate the risk of IT assets depreciation sustainably, IT MSPs can offer a range of services that take into account the full lifecycle of IT assets. This may include implementing energy-efficient technologies, such as virtualization and cloud computing, to reduce the amount of hardware needed and extend the lifespan of IT assets. By reducing energy consumption, clients can also reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
IT service providers can also work with clients to develop sustainable IT asset management plans that take into account the expected lifespan of IT assets and plan for their eventual replacement or repurposing. We can help clients to identify opportunities to reuse or recycle IT assets, reducing waste and contributing to a circular economy.

With our system, you can easily access real-time information about your assets and inventory, making it easier to make informed decisions about your business.
3. Data Center owners will seek out mature energy management technologies
As the demand for data centers continues to grow, data center owners will increasingly seek out mature energy management technologies to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and meet sustainability goals. With the rising cost of energy and the impact of data centers on the environment, it is essential for data center owners to implement effective energy management strategies.
Mature energy management technologies, such as power usage effectiveness (PUE) monitoring, can help data center owners to optimize energy usage and reduce waste. By using PUE monitoring, data center owners can identify areas where energy usage can be reduced, such as through improved cooling systems or more efficient server utilization.
In addition to PUE monitoring, data center owners can also implement other mature energy management technologies, such as renewable energy sources and energy storage systems. By using renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, data center owners can reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources and reduce their carbon footprint. Energy storage systems can also help data center owners to optimize energy usage by storing excess energy and using it during peak demand periods.
Ultimately, data center owners that can implement mature energy management technologies will be well-positioned to meet the demands of the industry and achieve their business goals. By reducing costs, improving efficiency, and meeting sustainability goals, data center owners can create a competitive advantage and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Through our sister company ABBE Technology Solutions Inc, we are able to craft a sustainable data-center architecture and implement mature energy management technologies to meet the demands of the industry and achieve their business goals. By reducing costs, improving efficiency, and meeting sustainability goals, we can enable data center owners to create a competitive advantage and contribute to a more sustainable future.
4. IT MSPs providing facility total experience initiatives, will be integral for sustainability
As sustainability becomes an increasingly important consideration in business operations, IT services providers will need to incorporate sustainable practices into their facility total experience initiatives. By doing so, we can not only meet the needs of clients but also contribute to a more sustainable future for all.
Sustainability can be incorporated into facility total experience initiatives in various ways. For example, incorporating energy-efficient lighting, heating, and cooling systems in Data Centers can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower the carbon footprint of the facility. This can also lead to cost savings and improved comfort for occupants.
In addition to energy-efficient technologies, IT services providers can also work with clients to develop sustainable facility management plans that take into account the full lifecycle of assets. This may include identifying opportunities to reuse or recycle assets, reducing waste, and contributing to a circular economy.
Bequik It Managed Services offers a sustainable, innovative and responsible solutions to our clients as part of their facility total experience initiatives.By taking a holistic approach to facility management that incorporates sustainability, we can help clients to achieve their business goals while contributing to a more sustainable future.
An example of this is when we incorporate energy-efficient lighting, heating, and cooling systems in our Data Center architecture which can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower the carbon footprint of the facility.
5. IT MSPs compliment to firm’s the Health & Safety success of the back-to-the-office strategies
IT Managed services can play a significant role in enhancing the health and safety protocols of back-to-the-office strategies. By leveraging technology, IT Managed service providers can help organizations implement and maintain health and safety measures to ensure a safe and healthy work environment for employees.
One way IT Managed services can help is by providing remote monitoring and management of IT infrastructure, which can limit the need for onsite technical support and reduce the risk of exposure to viruses or other health hazards. Additionally, by providing remote technical support, IT Managed service providers can help employees troubleshoot and resolve IT issues without leaving their desks, minimizing contact with others and reducing the risk of transmission.
Bequik’s IT Equipment Set-up, 360 degrees check & Physical hardware Sanitation services ensures the success of back-to-the-office strategies by prioritizing employee health and safety. We do this by implementing the service in our premises so that employees doesn’t have to report to their office and do it themselves. Particularly for our partners following hybrid work, we see to it that these non-negotiable hardware checks are done before we deliver it to their employees respective place ow work, ensuring we are able to complement to our clients back-to-office-strategies.
As MSPs, we are put in a position with major influenced across industries. It’s crucial that we are able to show our partners that our sustainable initiatives are not only in our handbooks but in our everyday live-actions, particularly in the services we provide. Conscious transformation in sustainability, whiles helping our customers/partners do the same, means investing in innovation and smarter more secure technology eco-system. MSPs should be in the same sustainable journey and make an effort to support their partner on theirs.Back to list
