Businesses are more dependent on technology every day. With extreme pressure from regulatory, macroeconomic and other critical market forces, organizations of all kinds are taking a closer look at maximizing operational efficiency and effectiveness. Ensuring all your tech—from devices and PCs to network and security—can be an overwhelming, yet crucial part of your business.
Managed services give you the opportunity to hand-off the mundane management and monitoring of your technology to outside experts, therefore investing your time, talents and money into innovating and expanding your business.
A year ago, a lean IT team found ways to manage the occasional vacation or time-off of a member or two. Now lean means emaciated when it comes to missing a member for a week or more. Having to juggle planned time off among staff is hard enough, but are you prepared when the unexpected happens?
Relieving the Burden
Take March of 2020, when the vast majority of companies sent their office teams home and had to quickly manage and support a remote workforce. Unexpected and overwhelming, IT admins were vital links to getting remote workers up and running, while at the same time vetting new tech to enhance collaboration, communication, and a new way of doing business both inside and outside the company.
With so many companies looking to make working from home a permanent thing, the burdens remain. When 65% of your current IT time is spent ‘keeping the lights on’, you’re wasting an opportunity to outsource that work, so that the technology professionals within your organization can use their skills to promote growth.
Whether you’re thinking about augmenting your staff full-time or just to give your in-house team some much-needed time off, iTBlueprint can help.
Put your in-house team to work – If your in-house IT staff is spending their work hours on mundane maintenance and uninspiring upgrades, then you’re wasting your money and the talents of your team. Augmenting your staff with a team to cover all those tasks frees your tech team to work on strategic projects that elevate your business’s ability to innovate. Managed services help you better utilize individuals’ IT talents, increasing operational efficiency and decreasing employee turnover.
Control IT costs – Outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you to budget effectively. In other words, only pay for what you use when you need it. Need someone to cover a vacation or medical leave? Remove the risk of being short staffed with a skilled professional, without having to include bonuses and benefits in the package.
Expand your skill set – iTBlueprint offers a variety of skill-level experts to expand your ability to get IT done.
