Our IT Outsourcing clients come to us for a variety of reasons. Managed services is the right move for a lot of companies, but not always for the same reasons.
Here are some of the most popular advantages.
1. Constantly Trained (and retrained) Staff:
If you keep IT services in house, you have to worry about hiring the most qualified and experienced staff to keep everything running smoothly. You also may have to absorb the cost of having them up-trained to keep up wit the latest technology.
An outsourced solution means you have access to the most qualified workers, with the most up-to-date skills and certifications.
2. Lower Costs:
You can keep labour costs down by eliminating the price of a full time IT professional, or team. You pay for what you need and get what you need without creating a full time position with a salary and benefits.
3. Focus on Hiring Staff That Makes You Money:
Chances are your expertise lies somewhere other than internet technology and networks. You know how to hire people that can help you sell your product or services, but you may know nothing about hiring people to support your technology.
4. Smaller Businesses Get Big Business Service:
If you’re a small-to-medium business, you don’t access to the same funds as the heavyweights in your industry—but you can still have access to the same IT services.
You’re paying less for the same breadth of services that a company with a fulltime staff gets.
5. Your Needs Will Change
Flexibility is a major advantage. You may need to scale down or ramp up your IT needs. You can do so without the worries of hiring new staff, or laying off employees you no longer need.
At the same time, you allow the flexibility of integrating new technology, quickly and easily.
