Today, technology is more complex than ever before. Outsourcing your IT to a third-party provider can yield immediate benefits like boosting productivity and lowering costs.

Here are ten benefits of outsourcing your IT to a Managed IT Services provider:

  1. Get IT Costs Under Control – Outsourcing turns fixed costs into variable costs. Services are scalable so you only pay for what you use when you need it.
  1. Reduce Labor Costs – Building an in-house IT team is expensive, and temps are not always an option. Outsourcing lets you focus resources where they are needed most.
  1. Trained, Certified, and Experienced – How can you assure that a potential hire is qualified? Certifications like Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) are important. However, so is experience! Picture of compass. Outsourcing concept.
  1. Qualified Doesn’t Mean Experienced – Managed Service providers have seen it all… multiple times. An in-house person is somewhat isolated, no matter how much training they have. You want experience!
  1. Increase Efficiencies and Competitiveness – In-house IT carries higher R&D costs and a longer implementation time. All of which increase your costs which are then passed on to your customers.
  1. Rapid Implementation – A Managed IT Services provider has the resources to start any project quickly. With an in-house team, the same project might take weeks. IT providers bring years of experience that will immediately save you time and money.
  1. Focus on Core Initiatives – You have limited resources. Your team has limited time and attention. Outsourcing removes IT management from your staff so they can focus and core initiatives and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.
  1. Reduce Risks – Markets, regulations, and technology change rapidly. Managed IT Service providers assume the risk and manage it for you, especially regarding security and compliance.
  1. Level the Playing Field – SMBs can’t match the level of support a large company can afford. Outsourcing gives you access to the expertise and latest technology at an affordable cost, giving you a competitive edge.
  1. Compliance and Security – Do you regularly audit workstations and servers? Have you implemented PCI security standards? Today, it’s critical to protect client data, credit card information, and proprietary information, just to name a few data sets. A Managed IT Services provider will implement advanced security protocols to keep your business data safe.

Engaging a Managed IT Services provider improves productivity, streamlines workflows and will free your team to focus on what’s important!
