WHY SHOULD YOU OUTSOURCE YOUR INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY?
Imagine cooking a nice dinner at home. You’re going to need ingredients, tools, time, and knowledge. And if you want something fancy, you might not even have the skill to pull it off. So while your whole family is hungrily pacing in the kitchen, you wonder if you should outsource your Lasagna plans to Joe’s Corner Kitchen.
Outsourcing your IT needs is the same thing. Should you struggle with the technical needs of an IT department, connections and passwords, hosting, configuration and software installations?
IN FACT, OUTSOURCING MAKES YOU MORE COMPETITIVE
It reduces cost. The cost of an IT department, with its full-time staff and management is about 25 to 30% higher than outsourcing.
It increases efficiency. An internal IT department can only work on one thing at a time, lowering your company’s productivity. With outsourcing, several issues can be worked on concurrently, providing that much-needed boost in productivity.
It improves morale. Your staff will fully appreciate that issues are handled promptly, professionally and efficiently, instead of the bottlenecking that occurs when they have to wait for hours or days for an internal helpdesk response.
It helps you with your accounting. Quality IT outsourcing companies provide detailed reports on services. You will know where your money is being spent, and how to allocate resources. It’s the bird’s-eye view that you need to make important decisions for your business.
It increases your ROI. You are receiving a million dollars worth of technical knowledge and training for just a fraction of the cost of one full-time IT employee.
It saves you from expensive training and learning curves. Training requirements for IT departments aren’t often recognized, and how often is a new-hire 100% effective? Outsourcing companies spend money to train their staff in highly-specialized areas so that you don’t have to, and your company receives the benefits of that training.
It helps you be objective. Companies that make poor IT decisions become emotionally invested in them, and can’t get detached. But an outsourcing company reports to you independently, and can move quickly in response to changing business needs.
It helps your CFO. With outsourcing’s fixed annual costs, your CFO’s work is made easier.
It reduces the costs of your supplies. You won’t need additional laptops, desktops, mobile phones, or servers.
It saves you from having to worry about new technologies. Technology is constantly changing, and IT companies have no choice but to keep up. Whatever the new technology is, it won’t be your problem -- it will be your profit.
The right investments in IT increase your productivity, reduce your downtime, and let you respond better to your customers’ needs.
Increase productivity, reduce downtime AND control IT costs.
Increase reliability, improve security AND reduce capital expenses.
Experience, expertise, and a commitment to producing results for your business – not just your technology.
