If your business isn’t taking advantage of all that modern technology has made available, there’s a good chance you are limiting your own productivity, efficiency and profitability. Trying to correct that problem, you may quickly find yourself out of your depth, especially if you’re not a hugely technical person. This limits you to two options: either hire an in-house employee to handle your IT needs, or take on a managed IT service provider, like Networking Results. Managed IT Services are the equivalent of an insurance policy for your IT needs, on call when you need them. We’re convinced they are the better option for you for the following reasons:
#1: Reduced labor costs
If you hire an in-house person to handle your IT tasks, you will likely be out more than $30,000 a year on his or her income; in fact, Indeed.com lists the average salary of an IT Specialist in Texas at $41,000.00. To make matter’s worse, this figure doesn’t account for the software programs that he or she ends up purchasing to handle your IT processes. When outsourcing the processes, however, you gain the advantage of paying only for what you need or want. For less than the salary of an in-house IT Pro, you’ll have access to our full team if necessary, each one bringing their own valuable knowledge and expertise to work for you!
#2: Increased efficiency
If you try to handle all of your IT tasks yourself, there’s a good chance that you won’t be able to focus on other important business functions. An employee who deals with IT is usually either not fully utilized, (IE, spends most of their time waiting for an IT problem to deal with), or ends up being a half-baked hybrid that splits their time (and expertise) between their IT role, and some other role. This prevents them reaching their true potential in either field, because their attention is divided. If you are a large enough business to actually warrant a full time IT employee year round, what happens when an unexpected emergency arises, or during some busier-than-normal period of the business year? Why bother with this balancing act? With our managed IT services, not only will you notice an improvement in your ability to focus on pertinent business tasks, but you will also notice an increase in overall efficiency.
#3: Maintaining a competitive edge
If you’re looking to establish and maintain a competitive edge, you need to understand the importance of your technological functions. More importantly, you need to understand that the more enhanced they are, the more of a competitive edge you will have. To get the most out of your technology, make sure to take advantage of Networking Results and our IT support services in Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth.
#4: Trained professionals
You need to make sure that your IT tasks are being handled by technicians and consultants who know what they are doing. If they aren’t, this can lead to huge disasters for your company. By partnering with a professional IT services company, you can rest assured your IT processes will be completed by people who have been trained and certified. Our team are well-trained and experienced, not to mention our status as certified technology partners with many of the most popular hardware and software providers.
#5: A bigger vision
Many in-house IT pros spend all their time putting out fires, and don’t actually contribute too much to the vision of your business for growth. Our IT specialists have worked with a wide variety of companies, large and small, and we bring a wealth of experience to the table. This positions us to easily determine and suggest IT solutions that have worked for companies in similar positions, solutions that we know will be successful, and propel you to the next level. It is for this reason that we offer our Business IT Reviews, and IT Strategy Consultations.
