IT Outsourcing Reasons and Rewards

As the owner of a small company, you have probably entertained the thought of outsourcing your computer infrastructure. There are substantial advantages of outsourcing your IT systems and the maintenance of them.

1. Reduce and control operating costs.

When you outsource, you eliminate the costs associated with hiring an employee, such as management oversight, training, health insurance, employment taxes, and associated on costs etc.

2. Improve company focus.

It is neither practical, nor possible to be a jack of all trades. Outsourcing lets you focus on your core competencies while another company focuses on theirs.

3. Gain access to exceptional capabilities.

Your return on investment is so much greater when you outsource information technology to a firm that specializes in the areas you need. Instead of just the knowledge of one person, you benefit from the collective experience of a team of IT professionals. Outsourced IT companies require their IT staff to have industry training and certifications.

4. Free internal resources for other purposes.

You may have someone in your office that is pretty good with computers or accounting, but most likely these were not the jobs he or she was hired to do. If they are spending time taking care of these things, who is doing what they were hired to do? Outsourcing allows you to retain employees for their highest and best use, rather than wasting their time on things that may take them longer than someone who is trained in these specific areas.

5. Resources are not available internally.

On the flip side, maybe you don’t have anyone in your company who can manage your IT needs, and hiring a new employee is not in the budget. Outsourcing can be a feasible alternative, both for the interim and for the long-term.

6. Maximize restructuring benefits.

When you are restructuring your company to improve costs, quality, service, or speed, your non-core business functions may get pushed aside. They still need to be handled, however, and outsourcing is an optimal way to do this. Don’t sabotage your restructuring efforts by failing to keep up with non-core needs.

7. Improve response times and core functionality.

This is definitely a scenario when outsourcing to experts and enterprise grade computer systems can make a big difference.

8. Make capital funds available.

By outsourcing non-core business functions, and moving IT costs to operational expenses you can spend your capital funds on items that are directly related to your product or your customers.

9. Reduce Risk.

Keeping up with technology required to run your business is expensive and time consuming. Because professional outsourced IT providers work with multiple clients and need to keep up on industry best practices, they typically know what is right and what is not. This kind of knowledge and experience dramatically reduces your risk of implementing a costly wrong decision.

10. Licensing.

Outsourcing your IT infrastructure ensures that your company complies with software licensing requirements.
