IT Outsourcing can provide many benefits for companies with the most common way of outsourcing your IT requirements is with a maintenance contract.
IT systems need regular maintenance which can be achieved outside of core working hours with a maintenance contract to minimise disruption to the business. This type of contract removes the need to add personnel dedicated to IT and instead allows you to focus on your business rather than IT. By outsourcing your IT maintenance, you are also able to access a large number of skilled engineers that can assist with a variety of business applications as and when you require them.
At the Remark Group we’ve found that many businesses are often left without IT Support when their IT staff are off with sickness or holidays and having cover at these times is important to deal with any unforeseen problems that may occur. By outsourcing your IT this is not an issue as there are resources available to cover these situations and provide support when you need it the most.
Many companies also overlook the opportunity to outsource IT Procurement, but by outsourcing your IT purchasing you can fall under a larger buying power than if you purchase direct. The benefit of this will be especially felt in small businesses as they don’t necessarily have the purchasing power to drive down prices. When you couple this with expert advice and product knowledge from the buyers and system designers then the true benefit of outsourced IT procurement is knowing that your money is being spent on the right products.
