Outsourcing IT Services

When should you outsource?

Many executives would like to outsource either part or all of their tech support, but have a challenge getting buy-in from others on the team.  If that’s what you’re dealing with, here’s a list of four advantages to outsourcing to consider.

  • Bench Strength
    Technology is getting more complex daily. A tech firm will have resources that provide both skill depth and diversity affordably.
  • Scalability
    As projects or upgrades are needed, an outside firm gives you the ability to scale up or down as needed without a long-term commitment. 
  • Knowledge
    If you’re ultimately responsible for IT and you don’t have a tech background, knowledgeably managing an IT staff can be challenging.   
  • Preserving Institutional Knowledge
    If you value institutional knowledge and you’ve experienced employee attrition, you understand that every time you lose an employee, you lose some institutional knowledge. Hiring an outsourcing firm provides another way to protect your institutional knowledge.
