4 key benefits to outsourcing your IT Support

Not sure whether to outsource your IT? Here are a few reasons why you should consider…

2020 has hit hard many businesses, large and small enterprises and organisations across the country. Businesses are now searching for ways to save their money in order to stay afloat. One way to save some money on your IT is by outsourcing it.

Why not use in-house IT support?

In-house IT support involves essentially having an IT expert on stand-by that works within your team and it can come at a huge cost, especially compared to an outsourced IT company. Many outsourced IT companies now offer 24/7 services and are able to fix any issues that you may be experiencing instantly. Our team at Solutions4IT also offer 24/7 assistance, learn more about our services here.

It is much cheaper to outsource

Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic, many businesses are trying to find ways to cut some of their costs and save as much money as they can to protect their staff’s jobs. As keeping your data and internal systems safe is a huge priority and a vital factor to most businesses it may seem like it is a cost that is difficult to avoid or cut down.  With an outsourced provider you would most likely need the same hardware, software licences and cloud subscriptions but avoid training costs, holiday cover and sickness. 

Security

Up-keeping high security is vital for any business and not having to worry about their data being compromised. Unless your in-house IT team specialises in the IT security department, it is unlikely that they will be able to prevent any security breaches or retrieve any data that has been damaged or erased as a result of external threats. This would cause unnecessary and additional costs to your business.

Outsourcing your IT will help you find a provider that will not only protect your system against any digital threats and malware but they will implement a security infrastructure that is tailored to your business and its needs in order to reduce any data breaches or cyber-attacks.

Access to a range of services

In-house IT specialists tend to have specific fields that they are experts in but depending on the scale and size of your business it may require a range of different IT services. Outsourced IT companies can be a one-stop shop for all your IT requirements with experts in all kinds of fields e.g. cloud IT support, security, connectivity or routing.

An IT disaster recovery plan implementation

Ensuring that you have an adequate and strategic plan put in place in case of a cyber-attack or data loss is extremely important.

Outsourced IT companies will create and implement a disaster recovery plan that will save you huge costs in the long-term through regular data back-up, establishing an efficient system to retrieve data and having access to hardware equipment in the event of a disaster.
