1 - Control IT Costs
Outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you budget effectively. In other words, only pay for what you use when you need it.
2 - Reduce Labor Costs
Hiring and training an IT staff can be very costly, and temporary staff do not always live up to your expectations. Outsourcing allows you to focus your human resources where you need them most.
3 - Experienced, Trained, Qualified, Certified.
If you are not trained in IT, how do you ensure that an employee is qualified? Certifications such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) are important, but so is experience.
4 - Qualified doesn’t Equal Experienced
Few problems are new for managed services companies, such as Netwise Computer Solutions, which see related problems several times. An internal IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they train. We would all prefer an experienced doctor; The same is true for you.
5 - Increase Efficiency and Competitiveness
Organizations that try to do all IT services on their own can have a much higher research, development, and implementation time, all of which increases costs and ultimately transfers to clients.
6 - Quickly Implement New Technology
A quality outsourced IT service organization will have the resources to start new projects immediately. Managing the same project in the company can take weeks or months to hire the right people, train them and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will provide years of experience at the beginning, saving time and money.
7 - Stay Focused on Your Core Business
Companies have limited resources, and each manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing can help your business stay focused on your core business and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.
8 - Reduce risk
All business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions and technologies change very rapidly. Outsourcing providers assume and handle much of this risk for you, with industry-specific knowledge, especially security and compliance issues. In general, they are much better at deciding how to avoid risk in their areas of expertise.
9 - Level the Playing Field
Most small businesses cannot afford to match the internal support services maintained by larger companies. Outsourcing can help small businesses act "big" by giving them access to the similar technology and experience that large companies enjoy. A cost structure managed by independent third parties and an economy of scale can give your company a competitive advantage.
10 - Compliance and Security
Is your firewall updated? Do you have a DMZ installed? Do you audit your Workstations and Servers? Has your company implemented PCI security standards and works to maintain those standards? For example, companies have more ways than ever to thrive by taking many forms of payments, such as credit and debit cards, gift certificates, electronic checks, to name a few, but with these forms of transaction the need for due diligence also arises. . By outsourcing to a qualified Manages Services company that is familiar with PCI compliance standards, you can be assured that your company is minimizing the risks associated with maintaining customer data, credit card numbers, confidential information and more.
