Whether you’re the CEO of a growing company, the owner of a new company, or just someone in charge of overseeing the company’s IT department, you probably have thought about ways to maximize your IT efficiency. If you haven’t thought about outsourcing your IT department, you might want to. Why? Well, I’m about to tell you.
You’re In Control
When outsourcing your IT department, you have all the power. Deciding on how many hours a month you want to have support can be rather tricky. Generally, the vendor you are considering will give you a recommendation based on your current network. Regardless, you have the power to say yes or no.
I have spent some time with business Mongols learning the ins and outs of running a successful business, and everything comes down to budget, ROI, long-term investments…basically anything money. By choosing to outsource your IT Department you don’t have to pay full-time salary and benefits, which can be a large sum of money, depending on what your company offers.
Don’t get me wrong, your in-house IT guy(s) may be very knowledgeable
Outsourced IT companies are great for having vast knowledge. Chances are, they have a few other clients who have different network setups and network needs. As a result, they obtain a more diverse knowledge in the IT field.
Focus More On Your Business
Who doesn’t like to delegate work to others? Well, by outsourcing your IT department, you can spend more time focusing on your task, rather than having to worry about your IT department. In the event you need to make a decision, your IT department should already have a solution to present to you, to make your life that much easier!
Outsourced Managed IT companies are always looking for the next latest and greatest tech solutions, hardware and software. Chances are, your IT guy is rather nerdy and has about 300 ideas to get your company on the newest technology. So when the time comes to upgrade, hold on to your chair because he/she will blow your mind with new technology you didn’t even know existed.
