As small business owners we always have our eye on the bottom line. That is why in many instances we are the marketing person, the accounting person, the social media person, etc. The thought of bringing someone in for various functions pops into our thoughts daily. One of the areas where you can get the biggest bang for your buck is through IT Outsourcing.
There are many benefits to IT Outsourcing for the Small Business Owner:
- The truth is hiring an IT person on staff is costly. In addition to salary you have to factor in training, health insurance, employment taxes, retirement, etc. IT is a highly specialized field.
- Unless you started an IT Company, odds are technology is not your specialty. Outsource to a specialist so that you are able to get back to the business of YOUR business.
- IT Companies work with multiple vendors bringing your discounts for your hardware purchases such as computers and servers.
- IT Companies can properly secure your networks, computer, and servers to protect your business
- IT Firms stay abreast of changes in technology and specifically changes that could affect your business or your bottom line.
- IT Companies are able to monitor your systems to take care of issues proactively.
- Choosing a Managed IT Services company will keep your expenditures in check through a set monthly fee.
When choosing an IT firm for your small business you should look at specifically what your needs will be. A 3 person start up has wildly different requirements from a company with 20+ employees. Choose IT Outsourcing with a firm that allows you to select services ala carte or via a Managed IT Services agreement. One of the perks to IT outsourcing is being able to “try out” a vendor. If you are happy you can always upgrade later to a longer term commitment at a substantial cost savings.
