Businesses today are constantly striving to achieve the perfect balance between saving time and achieving more. The cherry on top would be to get some of your team’s time back to focus on more strategic objectives.
This dreamy cocktail of saving time, money and increased output is possible with IT outsourcing.
Outsourcing to a Managed Services Provider (MSP) can help to deliver IT processes, applications and infrastructure to meet your business’ main objectives. While you might have some areas of your IT function covered, support might be required in others. For instance, having eyes on your network 24/7 is a huge undertaking, who’s looking after your network at 5:00 pm on a Friday when the team has gone home?
If you’re new to the idea of outsourcing your IT, it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing solution. Keep reading to explore the 4 main reasons to consider outsourcing your IT.
1. REDUCE YOUR COSTS
Outsourcing removes the headache of recruiting, onboarding and training costs associated with permanent employees. Additionally, it allows businesses to scale up or down as needed. You may have a major project going which requires more support than usual. With an MSP, these peak seasons can be accounted for and planned for also meaning costs become more predictable.
2. ACCESS SPECIALIST SUPPORT
Where specific skillset(s) don’t exist internally, working with an MSP can be a great way to deliver on projects quickly. Utilising specialist support means your in-house resource doesn’t need to spend as much time researching. Specialist support also gives reassurance that your IT systems are as effective as possible, always using the right tools for the job.
3. COMPLIMENT YOUR IN-HOUSE IT FUNCTION
Outsourcing your IT can simply be an extension of your current team to provide support where and when you need it most. Your in-house IT team will sleep easy knowing there are eyes on your network 24/7 and not just during the 9-5. Or it may just be a case of needing extra hands on deck to support the helpdesk team during busier times of the year.
4. ENSURE YOUR BUSINESS IS COMPLIANT
Whether it’s completing the necessary certifications or ensuring users have access to the software and data they need (and nothing else!), your trusted MSP can help take the weight of risk reduction off your shoulders.
