There are a number of reasons as to why an SME company should outsource their I.T Support, let’s focus on two; Time & Money
Recruitment is one of the most time-consuming processes a business can go through, spending hours reading through the CV’s, organising the first stage interviews, the second stage interviews, analysing the pros and cons of the candidates, recruiting for a role you’re familiar with is hard enough but if you’re not particularly fluent in I.T how do you know you’re hiring the right person? By outsourcing your I.T you have on hand, a team of experts in their field who you can trust to manage your IT systems while you spend your time on more important matters – running your business.
Most internal I.T teams will demand salaries way in excess of the cost of an MSP. You must also factor in the other costs associated with an employee, not to mention holiday and sickness. With technologies constantly evolving you also need to factor in the ongoing training costs required for your internal I.T team to ensure your I.T infrastructure is never left outdated and open to compromise. Outsourcing your I.T should drastically reduce these costs and mitigate the risks.
There is definitely a place for I.T Managers and in house I.T Teams – I guess you must weigh up all of the options before deciding.
