Businesses without dedicated IT staff are often unprotected from the most basic threats, and those that hire big IT firms often end up overpaying for technology and services they may not need. Outsourcing gives businesses the best of both worlds—peace of mind, without taking too big of a piece of wallet.
1. It’s cheaper than hiring staff
If you’ve got a smaller business, chances are you don’t have enough work (or other resources) to support dedicated staff. In the Boston market, you can expect to spend $120k+ to hire a full-time IT Director—and $150k+ for a Cybersecurity Specialist. But by outsourcing, you get the only services you need, and you only pay for the services you get.
2. You get support when you want it
No matter what the problem is, when you need help, or how often, you’re guaranteed expert support without a costly IT/HR overhead.
3. Unbiased recommendations, too
The good part about hiring experts is that they’re, well, experts. And those experts can provide advice and recommendations based on their expertise. Because the truth is, most companies are overpaying for technology because they don’t know what the need. Having an unbiased third party come in and help you evaluate and negotiate with vendors could save you thousands.
4. You’ll always be up-to-date
Because on-staff support tends to only do what your company has done in the past, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. By outsourcing, you’re guaranteed a team that is always learning about what’s next, and is up-to-date with the best practices to keep your operations running and your data secure.
5. You’re protected in case of failure
Outsourced experts can help you detect problems before they become problems and proactively prevent any sign of failure. We constantly monitor to ensure things continue to run smoothly, too. And when you use a fully insured company, you get an extra layer of protection.
(Basically, we save you lots of time, money, and stress.)
