The ROI Of Hiring An IT Firm

If your business depends upon your network and computers, it’s time to consider whether or not it’s worthwhile to hire a managed IT service provider (MSP). For many CEOs and CFOs, it can be a tough decision. That’s exactly why we decided to outline some clear benefits of hiring an outsourced IT firm.

Benefits Of Hiring An MSP

When looking at the benefits around outsourcing your IT needs, it’s important to break it into both tangible and intangible benefits.

Tangible Benefits

Reduces Downtime

Hiring an IT firm means they are responsible for keeping your network secure and up 24/7. Since most have off site monitoring, they have often fixed problems you weren’t even aware you had. This means your system has less down time, fewer time wasted and lost productivity.

Employees Are Paid To Do Their Job (Vs “Other Duties As Assigned”)

It’s all too common where a company turns to a particularly tech minded employee to handle all the “tech stuff”. This means an individual has not only their primary responsibilities but also the added on duties assigned with anything that falls under the heading of IT. It becomes a juggling act where potentially nothing gets done well. An outsourced IT firm takes all that away and let’s employees focus on what they were hired for.

A Consistent Expenditure Versus Variable Expenses

The costs to manage your IT system on your own can vary from week to week and month to month. When you hire an MSP, we manage your network, all your connected devices and more with a consistent expense to you. Obviously, we’ll discuss the technology you’re currently using and look for ways to save your business money with any capital expenditures.

Improved Productivity

Because the IT needs now fall under the responsibility of your IT provider, your staff can forget about trying to manage this and focus on what they need to do to help grow the company. Your IT system runs like it should- in the background.

Helps Protect Against Cyber Attacks

It’s a fact of the world we live in these days that there are security breaches and malware attacks all around us. Some of these attacks can not only cripple a business but set them up for financial ruin.

Intangible Benefits

It’s been our experience that the companies we work with also experience other benefits around our relationship. Some of these include:

Happier Employees

Richard Branson said, “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.” When the IT network works like it should, your employees have the tools they need to focus on their work.

Better Retention

It goes without saying that if your employees are happier, they’ll stay with you longer. This saves you the time and expense of having to find new ones.

A Trusted Partnership

When you work with an experienced MSP, you form a partnership that can help you make major decisions about the technology you use. This relationship can lead you down a path of increased efficiency, more productivity and better profits.

It’s a simple truth that no matter how big or small your company is, having an MSP to manage all aspects of your network will save you money many times over. Call us today for a free initial consultation.
