Benefits of outsourcing IT

Table of Contents

This month we want to raise awareness of the fact that Host One provides a one stop IT shop for all your IT needs. Offering a fully managed IT service for organisations. We also want to highlight the benefits of outsourcing your IT which you might not be aware of and in turn find this is actually a better solution for your business.

IT is something which perplexes most people. But it is an essential part of every business. If not initially set up properly and maintained regularly then your business will quickly run into serious technical problems.

  • Quickly Implement New Technology
    A quality outsourced Managed IT provider will have the resources to start new projects right away. Handling the same project in-house might involve weeks or months to hire the right people, train them, and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will bring years of experience in the beginning. Saving time and money on the whole project.
  • Qualified doesn’t Equal Experienced
    Few issues lodged are completely new for Managed Service Providers who tend to see a range of issues multiple times. An in-house IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they train their experience and skills. An IT company has staff members with a range of skills and experience is really no competition.
  • Reduce Labour Costs
    Hiring and training any IT staff internally can be very expensive. Outsourcing your IT is often cheaper than having a single salaried dedicated internal IT staff member/s. This lets you focus your human resources where you need them most.
  • Level the Playing Field
    Outsourcing can help smaller companies enjoy the same benefits as a “big” company. By giving them access to the similar technology, and expertise that large companies enjoy.
  • Compliance and Security
    Is your firewall up to date? Do you have a DMZ installed? Do you audit your Workstations and Servers? Has your company implemented PCI security standards and work to maintain those standards with regards to credit card payments etc? These are just some of the many things which have to be regularly checked and maintained to ensure top levels of security
  • Improve company focus. It is neither practical, nor possible to be a jack of all trades. Outsourcing lets you focus on your core competencies while another company focuses on theirs.
