Although we have been a leader in outsourced IT for many years, 2022 is bringing us more new inquiries than ever before. We would like to think it’s because we provide high-level technical care and premium customer service at competitive rates. However, we also have to acknowledge that there is another factor at work: it’s nearly impossible for small and medium-sized businesses to hire IT staff these days.
To be clear, it has always been a challenge to recruit and retain tech professionals. But these days, with the labor market being incredibly tight, it’s more difficult than ever.
That’s where a great outsourced IT vendor can step in and fill gaps in your company. Let’s look at some of the advantages that come with working with one of us.
The Right Vendor Can Supplement or Replace Your IT Department
Maybe you have an existing in-house IT department and just need some help covering nights, weekends, or unique specialties. Or, it might be that you want to outsource most or all tasks related to maintenance, data security, networking, etc.
In either case, a good outsourced IT partner can supplement or replace your existing team. In fact, you can probably make the transition quickly and seamlessly while reducing your costs. That brings us to another important point.
You Can Get the Expertise You Need (Without the Costs You Don’t)
One of the interesting things about outsourcing your IT department is that you can almost certainly get more coverage and better expertise for less money. That’s because you only have to pay for the hours and skills you need, without having to hire people to fill in and cover for those times when you only need a little bit of extra help.
Add in the savings you get from skipping training costs, sick days, and other regular HR expenses, and you could save a fortune while getting better tech support in the process.
Outsourced IT Is a Flexible Option for Your Business
This is perhaps the most important feature of outsourced IT, and one that gets frequently overlooked. When you work with a company like ours you have the option to increase or decrease your services as needed. In other words, you can get extra help if things are busy or scale back costs when sales are slow.
It’s much, much more difficult to adjust staffing and budget levels when you have employees who are on your books. That means that by choosing an outsourcing vendor you can save money, get better IT care, and keep the flexibility to make good short-term decisions all at the same time.
