If you haven't saved budget & outsourced your IT Services yet, here's 10 great reasons why you should. The world of IT support continues to go from strength to strength. Accessibility has been one of the major innovations in recent years. It’s no longer necessary to employ experienced and qualified technical staff on site and pay them a large salary. Businesses can access third party IT that delivers the security and flexibility they really need.
1. The Cost
First and foremost is the cost of outsourcing compared to hiring technical staff to service your IT support requirements. Third party IT services are now significantly cheaper than hiring an individual or team. You don’t need to worry about paying a salary, organising sick cover, or making sure your head of tech is up-to-date with their skills.
2. A Broader Range of Expertise
Outsourcing your IT gives you complete access to the best service. IT cloud based services today have multiple staff with specialist expertise on hand to answer your queries and take care of any IT problems your company may have. It’s also a lot more responsive than many onsite provisions.
3. Adding to In-House IT Support
Some companies, particularly larger ones, have on-site IT staff. Adding outsourced support from a reputable service will mean that all the bases are covered and that specialist expertise is always available for those particularly tricky IT issues.
4. Sourcing Candidates
If you are looking to employ full-time online IT support for your company, do you personally have the technical expertise to find the right person? When you choose on outsourced IT service you already have that expertise on hand. It saves a lot of time and work on your part.
5. Choose the Service You Need
Most businesses realise that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. With outsourced IT support, you can pick the services you need. These can then grow and develop as your business also starts to thrive.
6. Staff and Productivity
A lot of companies have someone in the office who knows how to ‘do IT’ and can double up as the tech support. This can take up their time which could be better utilised for the job they were taken on to do. Outsourced IT services immediately solve this problem by providing access to high quality tech support.
7. Technical Support
It goes without saying that a dedicated IT infrastructure is going to provide your business with a much higher level of quality tech support. IT is changing rapidly and keeping up with the latest issues and developments is imperative for modern business. Because your third-party support is fully focused on this, they will also be hot on updating their systems and services.
8. Adding to Your Support
Whether it’s updating your online security or bringing in new processes, there may well be plenty of support that a third-party IT service can provide which you may not even have considered. That can include putting in the processes to ensure your staff can work while out and about or putting in the safety mechanisms that save your data if a problem should occur, including through specialist solutions such as disaster management.
9. Pro-Active Not Reactive
Choosing a third party IT provider also means that you get a proactive service that is continuously working to stay ahead of the game. Remote monitoring can spot potential issues and put in remedites before they get out of control. Your systems retain their integrity and that allows you and your staff to get on with the work that counts.
10. Change Your Focus
If you are constantly worrying about your IT infrastructure it can certainly take away from focusing on your business. Outsourcing your IT allows you to transfer that worry to the people who know what they are doing, letting you get on with the important job of running a growing, modern company.
