Benefit from the latest technology
The I.T. landscape is a constantly changing environment. By outsourcing you have the opportunity to optimize your investment in technology by allowing your supplier to try and test before new products are recommended.
Freeing up resource
You may have someone in your office that is pretty good with computers in addition to their normal job. So if they are spending time taking care of I.T. who is doing what they were employed to do? Outsourcing allows you to retain employees for their highest and best use, rather than taking up their time on things that may take them longer than someone who is trained in these specific areas. Equally what happens if there is critical failure and they are on holiday, off sick, or if there is a serious issue but it is beyond their capabilities?
Reduce your costs
The average salary of an in-house I.T. Manager is approximately £30 to £40K per annum. Added to this are costs for recruitment, additional company benefits and on-going training to keep their skills up to date. Equally your businesses I.T. needs may peak and trough, so there may not always be enough work for a dedicated person.
