If you have found your way to our blog, it’s probably because you’re looking for a great IT partner that offers managed services. We get a lot of inquiries from business owners and executives who are in the same shoes.
One thing we’ve noticed, though, is that many of them arrive on our website (or in our offices) aware that they need an IT vendor without really being able to say why. With that in mind, we thought we would use today’s post to outline a few big-picture reasons you might want to work with a firm like ours.
Here are a few reasons you don’t want to go without the help of an outsourced IT team…
Because You Need Tech Maintenance and Don’t Have the Expertise on Staff
If you have a business then you’re going to have hardware (like computers, printers, and phones), software (like accounting packages and productivity suites), and other elements like networks. You’re also going to need these items to function the way they are supposed to.
That leaves you with two choices: repair and update them from time to time or constantly buy new equipment and subscriptions. Since the second option isn’t really feasible from a financial point of view, that means you need to have access to the right expertise.
For a lot of small and medium-sized firms, the cost of having full-time IT employees on staff is just too high. That’s where our company comes in.
Because It’s More Cost-Effective to Get Specialists by the Hour When You Need Them
Using technology in your business means there are going to be times when you’ll need access to a technician with a particular specialty. That might mean someone who knows how to set up a new office or location, a person with the skills needed to arrange a backup and disaster recovery plan, or just an advisor who can give you strategic advice on data security or cloud computing.
Even if you have an in-house IT department you might not have someone on the payroll who possesses the right skills or background for these occasional projects. Rather than bringing in a new person – and paying for their salary, benefits, and training all year round – you can work with an outsourced team at an affordable hourly rate. That’s the best of both worlds in terms of access and affordability.
Because Good IT Care Lets You Focus on Your Strengths and Profitable Activities
In some ways, good IT care isn’t really about technology at all; it’s about freeing up your schedule and your team so you can focus on more impactful or profitable activities.
The less you have to pay attention to details like email protocols or software updates, the easier it is to pay attention to your products, your customers, and your employees. To put this another way, it simply isn’t good for your business to waste your day (or your best-performing employee) trying to add new firmware to the printer when you should be doing other things.
With the right outsourced IT team in place, you won’t have to take your eye off the ball because we will handle the technical details for you.
