Top Reasons for Outsourcing your IT Services
While companies that outsource their IT support enjoy many benefits, cost savings is the most compelling to most. Outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you to budget effectively based on your priorities. In other words, only pay for what you use when you need it. Do you need to hire and pay $55-85K/year when you can get a team of IT Professionals behind you for $5-15K, for example.
Saving money is very attractive to any Small or Medium Business (SMB) of course but there are many other benefits to consider, as outlined below.
Stay Focused on your Core Business. Every person in your organization has limited time; let your people do what they do best and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.
Be more Competitive and Efficient. Trying to manage all IT needs in house can result in long research and development cycles before implementation time. Outsourcing allows you to implement the right technologies right away, allowing you to go to market more quickly.
Hiring and training IT staff can be very time consuming and expensive. Hiring for various IT skillsets can be very difficult too. Outsourcing lets you focus your Human Resources where you need them most.
Few problems are unique for leading IT service companies. IT specialists see and resolve related problems multiple times in the field. An in-house IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they find time to train. We would all rather have an experienced doctor looking after our well being; and the same is true for IT.
