Since the beginning of 2020 we have seen a drastic disruption in our normal working practises. It seems like remote is the new ‘norm’ or at least temporarily. During such a difficult year, it is no surprise that businesses are looking to cut costs where possible.
IT support and management is a vital part of any business in order to protect confidential data and company progress. One way to cut your IT cost is to outsource.
At first glance, it may seem that in-house IT specialists are inexpensive but if you take into account all of the different costs that come along with that i.e. salaries, equipment, licenses and subscriptions all add up to a massive cost. Outsourcing your IT will provide the same level of service without the need of additional costs.
Even a small in-house IT team can end up costing your business tens of thousands of pounds a year to manage all of the costs that come with keeping your IT support within the business. With outsourcing your IT, cost greatly differs depending on your needs and expectations. You can really tailor it to your business in order to avoid any unnecessary costs that may not be that beneficial. Unless you are a huge corporation that requires an in-house team, outsourcing your IT support is a great way of cutting costs whilst still being in capable hands of experienced IT specialists.
The biggest disadvantage to an in-house IT team is that they are not going to be available 24/7. What happens when your system goes down or is hacked? The issue will not be able to be resolved straight away. This is why outsourcing your IT is so great because your data will be managed 24/7/365.

They do this through keeping up to date with the most advanced security measures and tools in order to safeguard your digital assets (1).
A Range Of Services
When you employ your IT in-house team you will find that the range of services that they provide depends on how many IT staff you employ as each person has their own field of expertise. When you outsource your IT, many of these suppliers will offer a range of services in order to meet all of your needs. This typically includes:
- Scoping, planning and delivering IT projects.
- Manage your IT security and keeping it secure through regular back-ups and firewalls.
- Provide cloud IT support to manage and run your business.
- Use Microsoft Office 365 which is a well-known and trusted application used by all kinds of businesses across the globe.
Outsourced IT companies will provide all of these services within one cost rather than having to employ individual people to manage all of that for your business.
