Information technology support is essential to any business looking to stay competitive in the digital age. Any disruption to your IT can have a lasting effect on your business, whether it’s one terminal that goes down during peak productivity or a whole network. Your business needs to get back up and running quickly. Lost productively is lost revenue. Lost communication is lost opportunity. IT support professionals aren’t just digital emergency responders either. They help prevent attacks from malware and viruses and keep software up-to-date. They are essential to businesses in Blackpool, Lancashire, Lytham and Fylde.
The question then is who to trust with your company’s IT support. Is having a full-time IT staff worth the cost? Perhaps outsourcing this support would provide a better solution for a company on a tight operating budget. There are many benefits to outsourcing IT support. This is the first of a three part series exploring the benefits both small and medium-size companies can gain from outsourcing their tech support.
It’s All About the Bottom Line
The biggest single reason to outsource IT support is money. The costs of keeping a full-time, or even part-time, IT workers on staff can be prohibitively expensive, especially for a business just starting out. If your company is paying the salary of a full-time IT Manager this may mean additional costs of £30 to £40 per annum, not to mention the costs of training and any company benefits provided. For small or medium-size companies this is an enormous sum, but the company can’t operate without their expertise. There may also be the problem of a lack of space. You may simply not have the room to spare for any more in-house staff members.
