Why outsource? « IT
In the beginning, all businesses do it all themselves. Sales. Production. Bookkeeping. Even
But as the weeks turn into months, you get busier
and busier, and then one day you realize you're working in a pig
sty because you don't have time to clean. So you hire
a cleaning service.
Same thing happens with bookkeeping – one day
you realize that it just makes sense to have a full-time bookkeeper
do your books, so you hire one. And then you can't believe
you even did the books yourself.
It's no surprise then, that the same thing is true
with IT. When
you outsource this business function you have even more time to concentrate
on what you do best.
Outsourcing your IT means not having to spend
time and effort worrying about your computers and your computer
systems – time that
eats up energy that's better spent focusing on your core business.
Outsourcing has many benefits. Here's
the first five that come to mind:
- Skip the frustration – It’s hard for you to keep
up with all the advancements and changes in technology. But
it’s easy for dedicated IT companies, because they’re
immersed in the industry every day.
- Prevent costly mistakes – You thought that new router was
the right one. But it wasn’t, and your business was
offline for six hours while you straightened it out. Not
only did you loose six hours of Internet up time, you wasted time
you wanted to spend working.
- Get an advantage – Outsourcing your IT needs allows you
to focus on your strengths instead of constantly getting distracted
by IT issues. By having your IT challenges met by a reliable
IT company, you can focus on marketing and production – those
little money-making activities we all love!
- Save money – This is everyone’s favorite! It’s
expensive to hire and train employees to “get up to speed” on
your IT endeavors. And short-term consultants don’t
always work out. Outsourcing your IT needs to a trustworthy,
established company who understands your business, your priorities,
and your requirements can save you thousands.
- Create the right environment – Geek-speak isn’t an
accident! Many times the IT environment is dramatically different
than the rest of a company’s environment, which can adversely
affect productivity and profitability. Outsourcing prevents
this from happening. Yeah outsourcing!
