How you can outsource just enough of your IT function
Outsourcing is all about making your life easier. It allows a business to focus on what they’re good at: their core activities. IT is a ‘back-office function’ but, given the way of the world it’s by no means a backwater. It’s probably the single biggest non-core department in most business and that’s only likely to grow.
So, how do you go about deciding what to outsource?
The good news is, you can work to your budget and comfort levels and there’s always the opportunity to increase as you grow.

Many businesses will look at the critical activities which keep the business flowing, such as their IT helpline or the setup of new users. These ‘IT Support’ jobs can become particularly overwhelming if a firm doesn’t have its own dedicated in-house team. By outsourcing them, day-to-day business continues to flow without interruption and the important support and security management takes place in the background.

expertise on hand
For businesses who want to truly outsource everything but their brilliance, services can include access to out-of-hours support, regular monthly site visits and the provision of loan hardware whenever it’s needed. This level of support will cover every digital element of your business, from interactions with clients, to pro-active network monitoring, security, updates, and even internal cover if your team is depleted for any reason.
It’s the equivalent of having a fully outsourced IT team at your disposal and giving them the responsibility of designing, deploying and maintaining your infrastructure. For ambitious businesses who are already growing fast, it’s incredibly liberating.
