If you haven’t already made the switch to managed IT services. It’s worth asking yourself, “Why not?” Below you’ll find 4 reasons why you’ll want to switch and the benefits you’ll get from it.

Control IT Costs
Outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs, allowing your business to budget effectively by only paying for what you use when you need it.

Experience Counts
Few problems are new for leading IT service companies, which see related problems multiple times. An in-house IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they train and it can be difficult to support the training and continued education he or she needs to stay at the top of the IT industry.

In contrast, an outside provider deals with dozens of clients. It’s exposed to best practices across industries and the latest techniques that can help you make decisions about how you use technology. With the assistance of an expert on software, hardware and configurations, pain points can be solved quickly.

Stay Focused on Core Business
Businesses have limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing can help your business stay focused on your core business without getting distracted by complex IT decisions. You also don’t have to worry about what happens when your IT person goes on vacation, has a sick day or finds a better paying job.

Quickly Implement New Technology
A quality outsourced IT service organization will have the resources to start new projects right away (don’t underestimate the time, money and resources this saves you). Handling the same project in-house might involve weeks or months to hire the right people, train them, and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will bring years of experience in the beginning saving time and money.

Reduce Risk (and the need to worry about it)
Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions, and technologies all change very quickly. When you outsource providers, they assume and manage much of this risk for you since they have specific industry knowledge, especially around security and compliance issues. They’re generally much better at deciding how to avoid risk in their areas of expertise.
