Technology is at the center of almost every business. When properly connected and integrated, technology can help save time, reduce repetitive and monotonous tasks, increase productivity and improve your bottom line. 

But with an improperly managed IT infrastructure the benefits of technology can become a productivity and security issue. Getting your technology right can be a huge asset, but getting it wrong can seriously hamper your ability to complete work and grow.

New call-to-action

To help manage your IT infrastructure, you should consider outsourcing to a managed service. Here’s why:

7 benefits of outsourcing your IT infrastructure 

  1. Helps manage costs

When you outsource your IT instead of hiring someone to manage it internally, you turn the expense into a variable cost instead of a fixed cost. This means you’re only paying for IT services as you use them. 

  1. Improves talent pool

There are several different components to managing any IT infrastructure, which usually means you need several different specialists who can work together. Hiring and training multiple IT staff can be incredibly costly, and only hiring one or two could leave knowledge gaps that affect the efficiency of your IT Infrastructure. By outsourcing, you are onboarding multiple trained, experienced and certified specialists who are experts in their area for a fraction of the cost of full-time employees. 

  1. Increases competitiveness 

When you manage IT internally, it can lead to higher R&D and implementation costs, not to mention the process can take much longer. When you outsource, you are teaming up with specialists who are not only on top of the latest technologies, they also have experience implementing them. This saves money and speeds up the implementation process. 

  1. Allows you to focus 

When your IT infrastructure is managed by a third party, it means you’ll have to spend less time on complex IT decisions. That leaves more time to focus on your core business and find new ways to lower costs and drive revenues. 

  1. Reduces risk 

As new technology is developed, your business is opened up to greater risks, especially related to cyber security. But it also opens you up to risks related to changing markets, greater competition, government regulations and more. An IT service provider will provide industry specific information to ensure your IT infrastructure keeps your business and information safe, secure and ahead of the curve. 

  1. Provides support when you need it

With the large majority of business being conducted online these days, being open 9 to 5 doesn’t mean your customers aren’t interacting with you all day long. When you hire a service provider to manage your IT Infrastructure you can feel confident that they are always available when you need them. They can monitor your systems and offer 24/7 crisis support if required, so you never lose a customer.

  1. Improves scalability 

As your company grows, so will your IT needs. While you could hire more staff, this will come with increased costs, and you still can’t guarantee you will have all the expertise you’ll need. Outsourcing allows you to bridge the gaps during every stage of growth, ensuring you have what you need in the present but also that you are prepared for the future.

These are just some of the many benefits to outsourcing your IT infrastructure. For more information on outsourced IT infrastructure and how it can help your Ontario business meet its technology, contact OT Group today.
