Many businesses find it hard to decide whether to build up their own IT department in-house or outsource their IT support.
In truth, there are many reasons in favour of outsourcing IT support: for example, the speed at which new technology changes can mean that a small internal IT department can struggle to keep up with new innovations.
In this article, Concorde Technology Group takes you through the key reasons for, and benefits of, outsourcing IT Support.
Stay one step ahead
Using a specialist IT company such as Concorde Technology Group means that your business will be far more likely to benefit from new technology - keeping your company one step ahead of the competition.
In order to run an effective in-house IT department, a company needs to be prepared to make a substantial investment.
Experienced IT staff can be very costly to employ and if you factor in essential time for your IT staff to keep up to speed with all the latest developments, as well as holiday requirements, sickness benefits and other 'on costs', the cost can be significant.
Outsourcing allows you to have an expert team at your fingertips - a team who are always up to date with the latest developments, and a resource which you can budget for effectively.
Another advantage of the outsourcing option is that investing in IT can be a very risky business because the infrastructure you invest in is expensive and nearly always out of date by the time it has been installed.
Using a specialist IT support company such as Concorde Technology Group helps to minimise those risks, as they will have specialist knowledge which will help to mitigate any risks.
Most specialist IT companies can ensure that your company's IT needs are met by custom-built packages designed specifically for your company's needs. Very often, you will be able to save money as you will only pay for what you actually need, whilst having the flexibility of being able to upgrade your systems and increase capacity, should the need arise.
Finally, one of the most important arguments in favour of the outsourcing of IT provision is that it will allow you to concentrate all your energies upon your core business activities, without the distraction of IT problems and glitches - you can rest assured knowing that your IT systems are secure, reliable and up to date.
