Your IT Team May Need Backup
You have built a successful, effective, and productive IT team, now what? Recognizing that you could use outside help to augment your team for additional resources or expertise is a true sign of leadership, and that is what you are: a business leader.
Most people in charge won’t admit that. To them, admitting they need help is a weakness. But you are not most people; you get it. You know the benefits. You have seen time and time again how outsourcing different aspects of your business (payroll, HR, recruiting, marketing) means lower costs and a better product.
Think about it for a moment: if all of the services you have outsourced were now done in-house, how would that impact headcount, expenses, even profit?
The same is likely true of your internal IT staff. Do you think they could do with a little backup from an IT company?
The Limits Of Internal IT
For the most part, the technician you hire will only offer entry-level capabilities. That means your IT productivity will plummet, which will cost you time and money. Your in-house staff is subject to business hours, requires full salaries, benefits, and vacation pay, and will undoubtedly call in sick from time to time.
That’s why getting them help before they need it makes you the hero. Be proactive and show your fellow team leaders how this saves money in both the short and long term. Your decision will also increase security and give you the support your company needs to take that next step forward.
