Hire IT Staff or Use Outsourced IT Services?
Today, every business depends on technology. That means every business must find a way to manage technology. Whether you have an IT team or not, we can help guide you through the processes and help provide guidance for:
1. Strategic IT Decisions
When a small business owner or manager tells an employee to do something, they usually just do it. Part of the job of an external IT support team is to push back when the management team is moving the wrong direction. Setting and maintaining an IT strategy will keep your software, hardware, processes and employees in alignment.
2. Wider Array of IT Skills
An outsourced IT services provider can bring in different consultants for your project. Software development. Microsoft. QuickBooks. Along the way, your needs may change. An external technical team can adapt and grow along with you.
Because an external IT support team works with multiple businesses and immerses themselves in the technology solutions they offer, they can often correctly diagnose and correct IT support issues much more quickly than others. Plus, they’ll often be available after hours when needed.
4. No Payroll Hassles
Hiring and firing employees is both stressful and risky. With an IT services provider, you can grow and shrink your IT expenses more easily. As well as keep your information on lock after an employee leaves.
5. Less Frustration
While there may be many hidden costs of working inefficiently, one of the biggest tolls is the emotional stress and frustration of having technology problems. “Why isn’t my email working?” “But we JUST bought that server…” “I thought we were backed up.” “How did we get hacked?”
