Managed Services vs Consulting Services vs Staffing Services

So, what’s the difference between Managed Services, Consulting Services, and Staffing Services anyways? To many people, they all sound pretty much the exact same, and believe they probably all do the same services as well. But that’s where they’re wrong.

Many businesses are becoming to more and more invested in the new digital age of technology, and all of its confusing but satisfying wonders. Outsourcing has always been a popular option since its start in the early 1990s. But the question is, are businesses and companies focusing on the right department?

Staffing Agency

These types of agencies are designed to help any type of company, large or small, find employees. This can range from internships to temporary, part-time, full-time, contracted, or even freelance. Many companies who do not have the time to hire help themselves, will turn to these staffing agencies. The agency will take the roles of searching, screening, and interviewing potential candidates, while also doing payroll and/or invoicing, handling taxes, and related job benefits. 

Consulting Services

Consulting agencies are great for independent professionals who want to control their own path. They can find work, and organizations can engage in a large pool of talent within a marketplace. This marketplace allows the client and contractor to interact directly, eliminating the need for a third party. Companies would start by posting a job announcement on the marketplace, where the candidate would then apply to it, if he or she seems fit to their qualifications. The company would then go through all of the evaluations of each candidate and pick the best one they deem for their company.

Managed Services

Managed services allows the client to receive top-of-the-line quality IT services, but without the price tag. The Managed Services organization would outsource the management, operations, and delivery of process, all while lowering the client’s total cost of IT risks and raising revenue. This type of service can also increase performance, optimized value-add use of internal resources, continue to improve services and efficiency gains over time, and reduced risk due to volatility directly driving service demand.
