5 reasons to outsource your IT support

It can be hard to decide whether outsourcing your IT support or keeping it in-house is best for your business. Keeping your IT up to date can be vital in your company’s success and finding a genuine IT support company who will work with you and understand the needs of your business will show the fear of ‘surrendering control’ is misplaced.  

To help you find out more about the benefits of outsourcing your IT support and decide if it’s right for your business, here are Xuper’s 5 reasons you should consider outsourcing your IT:  

  • Reduce costs

You could save significantly on costs. Hiring an IT manager does not come cheap, then on top of that you have recruitment and hiring costs, company benefits, and training to keep their skills up to date. This can be very expensive and often something small businesses just cannot afford. Then if there is an IT problem, the company are relying on staff to attempt to fix something they don’t understand. By outsourcing your IT, you are able to control costs by paying a reduced set monthly fee, making it easier to budget.  

  • Focus on your business

Outsourcing your IT gives you more time to focus on your business. If you have an IT problem or issues with data security, disaster recovery etc. and no one there who’s qualified to fix it, you can have a huge loss of productivity (and potentially money). Having IT support means you don’t have to worry about these problems as they are there to fix them for you, allowing you more time to focus on your company.  

  • Reduce risks

Your IT support are responsible for any problems that may occur such as, back up and hardware failures, software crashes, database corruptions, virus intrusions etc. It also reduces the likelihood of any problems being made worse by someone with little experience trying to solve your IT problems. Businesses are at an increased risk of cyber-attacks so security is extremely important, for more information visit our cyber security page or find more information on cyber-attacks on UK businesses over the past 12 months here.  

  • Keep up to date with the latest technology 

Technology is constantly changing and advancing, it can be hard to keep up, particularly if IT isn’t something you have a lot of knowledge in. IT support professionals maintain training to ensure they keep up with changing technology and so, will make sure your company is up to date with new products, software updates etc.  

  • Competitive advantage

Most small businesses can’t afford the same in-house IT support as larger companies. This can put these businesses behind as it’s hard to keep up with technology advances and deal with problems that may occur. Outsourcing can help these companies compete by giving them access to similar technology and expertise.
