That’s why we’ve created this Managed Services Calculator to simplify your buying process and hopefully help you understand what kind of expenses to expect.

Success is inevitable with Winsor added to your equation.

We get IT. Well-composed technology is vital for businesses, but trying to wrap your head around everything can feel impossible. Even figuring out how much you should be paying is a struggle.

Enter our Managed IT Services Calculator. We’ve created it based on our 20+ years of experience as IT professionals, creating and maintaining technology solutions for organizations. When thinking about managed services, the first question is usually “how much does it cost?” To make it simple for you, we’ve developed a cost calculator that can give you a real-time estimation of what your costs might look like. After you finish this, you’ll be able to view your instant estimate and a copy will be sent to your provided email.

Paying to keep a fully-staffed, in-house IT team can be a substantial expense for any company. The cost of recruitment, salary, benefits, and potential overtime for multiple employees is a cost that most organizations cannot afford to pay. This is why companies everywhere are making the switch to a Managed Service Provider (MSP) to handle their IT. Of course, one important question to consider is: How much do Managed IT services cost?

Most common pricing models for Managed IT Service providers

Risk Assessments

Flat Rate

With this model, Winsor Consulting essentially becomes your outsourced IT department. If something breaks down, for instance, your server, Winsor Consulting will help based on the service level agreement.

Data Security


It’s a simple pricing model that makes service-level agreements (SLAs) easy to interpret. Your monthly price will vary depending on the number of users you have. Prices generally vary per user per month.

Winsor IT Consulting


This model simplifies the user pricing structure for your different service levels and makes it easier to provide potential clients with a managed IT services price list. This pricing model charges businesses per device.

A La Carte

A La Carte pricing models allow you to tailor the exact service you need and have granular control of your IT budget. You can avoid bundling services or having to pay for things you don’t really need. For example, if your internal IT team can handle desktop and email support, you can engage Winsor Consulting to help with quarterly patching of all your servers and 24/7 monitoring.


This option allows you to offload some tasks like server management and helpdesk support to Winsor Consulting and handle break-fix and desktop support internally. It’s an effective way to prioritize your internal IT team’s time and make sure they’re concentrating on projects that generate revenue.

Fully Managed IT Services

The alternative option is to let Winsor Consulting handle your entire IT stack. This is a great option for a business with limited time/resources to focus on IT. Winsor Consulting will handle everything from break-fix to help desk, maintenance, cloud configuration & maintenance, etc. With a single point of contact (SPOC), your concerns and inquiries are adequately addressed at fair managed IT services rates.

Although fully managed IT is the most expensive tier, it is quite cost-effective at an enterprise level. Instead of investing in costly tools and technologies, you can leverage the high-tech IT infrastructure that Winsor Consulting has already put in place. Winsor Consulting also serves as an extension of your IT team. If you already have cloud assets, Winsor Consulting will monitor things like consumption, backup data, and server loads.

Our commitment to keeping your business safe is simple.

Choosing to outsource your IT services to Winsor Consulting is a huge decision. You must strive to know whether the decision will result in a positive ROI. So, how much does managed IT services cost? Before you use the managed IT services calculator to determine your ROI, it’s crucial to understand the baseline figure for all your IT processes. Some considerations to make include:

  • What’s your average rate of resolution?
  • Are the tickets severe in nature or can your team fix them quickly?
  • How much time does your IT team spend fixing internal IT issues?

Once you’ve determined the baseline figure, you can evaluate the efficacy of Winsor Consulting’s managed IT service providers. Take a month or two to get a full picture of your ROI. Generally, SMEs have reported positive ROI on managed IT services. According to a CompTIA survey:

  • 50% of companies saved 1-24% in IT costs per year through managed services
  • 33% saved 25-49% in IT costs
  • 13% saved more than 50% in IT costs

You can use our managed IT services pricing calculator to determine your estimated ROI. The bigger part of the saving on managed IT costs comes from the economies of scale in Winsor Consulting’s tools and technologies.
