Cost effective.
 
The average annual salary for an in house I.T manager can range from anywhere between £30K to £60 per annum, not forgetting the cost of recruitment as well as constant training to keep their skills up to date. When you outsource your I.T support you will get a full IT team in a budget that will best suit your organisations needs. 
 
Recruiting can be time-consuming. 
 
Finding the best technician for your organisation can take a lot of time. You have to consider a number of different things before employing any individual. For example; 
 
  • Do they have all the necessary skills 
  • Have they had any prior experience? 
  • Are they coming from the right background?
 
Increase productivity 
 
Your time is precious, and shouldn’t be spent focusing on the less important things like who will watch your network out of hours. You should be spending your time on your employees, your day-to-day costs and most importantly meeting your customer needs. When you outsource your I.T you are guaranteed to increase productivity as you won’t be constantly disrupted with I.T issues. Your technician will focus on any I.T related issues whilst you can focus on your day to day activities
