Top 10 Reasons to Outsource Your Businesses IT in the UK

Here are our top ten reasons you should consider outsourcing your businesses IT support

Reduce stress

Signing up to an outsourced IT support provider will allow you to relax as you take the stress out of managing your businesses & staff members technical needs. Having access to IT professionals allows you and your staff to focus on your work and running your business. Having to constantly keep dealing with your own IT issues means there isn’t much time left for you to focus on work.

Reduce IT costs

For a lot of small companies having your own internal IT specialists is not financially feasible. However, enlisting the help of an established MSP is often much more affordable than hiring a full time IT consultant. Having the ability to call up an MSP allows you to benefit from a team of individuals that cover a much wider set of skills than any one member of staff could have.

Access to the right person for the job

Finding one individual that can fully manage and support all of your businesses IT needs and services is a very daunting and difficult task, even then they may not be able to handle the workload in a timely manner. On top of this, the whole recruitment process is a very difficult, expensive and time consuming process. It is often followed by a very costly mistake when your business employs someone that isn’t qualified to fully manage and maintain your IT systems.

Waiting time & commitment

Inhouse IT departments can often get backlogged with staff IT requests. Having access to an outsourced IT company with fast response times can ensure you get back to work ASAP. Our average call waiting time is 25 seconds, straight through to one of our technicians, no reception service. We don’t believe in long term contracts and will just ask for a 3 month initial commitment and then operate on a 30 day rolling basis.

Get support when you need it

Having access to an MSP that actively monitors, updates and supports your systems allows you sleep easy knowing that all of your systems are going to be up and running when you need them. In the case of your systems going down, you have a number to call and a team of experts on hand to get things back up and running. An MSP doesn’t go on holiday for 2 weeks or get ill over the weekend, they will always be on hand to assist with your IT issues in a timely manner.

Make the most of latest technology

Changes in the IT industry are constant, one week your systems are up to date and the industry standard and then the next your competitors are storming past you with a fancy new bit of software. Managed Services Providers will be aware of the new technologies, changes in the industry and can work with you to stay up to date with these changes.

Reduce downtime

For any business downtime is a scary prospect with huge potential costs that can easily cause disruption to your workflows. MSP’s offer monitoring and proactive support in order to keep your systems up and running.

Work alongside any inhouse IT departments

You may have already gone down the route of hiring an IT consultant or member of staff who is looks after your IT on top of their own workload. This type of setup can very quickly become overwhelming as your business grows. Outsourcing your IT to a Managed Service Provider and dedicated support team, guarantees someone will always be available to take your call when you need it. Having an MSP can remove the dependency on 1 or a few individuals and help to manage their internal IT requests.

Quick project turnaround

Your in house IT department may only have the time and resources to focus on supporting your company’s existing IT support needs. By outsourcing your IT, you will have access to a project team that can implement your new projects quickly and efficiently.

Compliance and security

Firewalls, data security, off site backups, saved payment details, auditing PCs & servers, security updates and standards are all things that need to be taken care of and considered. Having access to the minds of multiple IT professionals can help you to minimise risks of cyber crime or data breaches, even the smallest of businesses can be at risk of a targeted cyber attack.
