The coronavirus pandemic has put a number of new and unexpected pressures onto IT departments worldwide. Many have had to move quickly to provide support to a workforce that has suddenly become geographically dispersed. Some departments have struggled more with this than others, prompting some business owners to accelerate the outsourcing of their IT functions. So, what are the main benefits of outsourcing IT support?
Reduced employee workload
Outsourcing IT support gives businesses more control over their technology expenditure because it makes it easier to scale IT resources to fluctuating demands. The result is greater agility, cost-effectiveness and predictable budgets. Outsourcing means you only need to pay for what you actually use, whereas traditional methods often leave equipment idle, licenses unused, positions vacant or incumbent personnel entitled to redundancy pay. Most outsourcing firms offer a range of IT support plans, with set monthly/annual rates plus optional add-on services you use and pay for only as required. Although it varies with the nature of each business, the lower cost of labour and IT infrastructure can make you more competitive.
