What are the advantages of outsourcing my IT services?

Employees are expensive.

First, there’s the substantial time investment required to find the right employee when you have an open position. You’ll have to make an effort to advertise that opening, then you have to make room in your schedule to fit in interviews with the most qualified applicants, and finally you’ll have to confer with your higher-level staff and decide which interviewee is the best fit for the job.

Then, after the hire, there’s the more tangible investment you’ll have to make in wages and benefits. They say time is money… well, money is actually money, and it’s harder to part with.

If it’s ever possible to outsource responsibilities that previously required an in-house solution, take that opportunity. You’ll save a lot of money.

Onserve provides just such an opportunity with our managed IT services. The advantages of outsourcing your IT services are clear:

Low cost

We’ll get the easy one out of the way first: it doesn’t take an ace accountant to see that outsourcing your IT services is more affordable than hiring your own staff.

For less than the price of a single full-time employee, Onserve will provide all the services you’d get with an entire IT department (network security, disaster recovery, email protection, CIO consulting, hosted solutions, and more).

Save time

There are only so many hours in a day, and every minute you spend dealing with IT problems yourself is a minute than could have been spent addressing other needs.

We’ll take care of your IT infrastructure so you can focus on everything else that needs to be taken care of for your business to thrive.

More flexibility

Unless you’re some kind of sociopath, it usually isn’t easy to fire someone.

Consider this scenario: you have an opening in your IT department and you interview and hire and train the perfect candidate. They not only do a great job but they’re also funny and kind and you get to know and like them more and more… and then, just a couple months later, business has slowed considerably. Suddenly you have a tighter budget and fewer IT needs and you have to fire your relatively new hire.

Again, Onserve eliminates the need for hiring, training, and maintaining your own employees. If you ever need to scale back your services, you don’t have to put someone’s livelihood in jeopardy: all you have to do is click a button.

Better service

It’s rare to find an area in your budget that can be cut without sacrificing something valuable.

But that’s exactly what will happen when you outsource your IT needs. In fact, not only are you not sacrificing anything, you’re actually gaining value that you likely didn’t have before with your previous, more expensive solution.

Onserve, like most in-house solutions, is able to secure your network and maintain your equipment to limit instances of downtime… and if disaster does strike, we’ll respond quickly and restore all your files with just minutes of progress lost.

Those are pretty standard services. What sets us apart from the average IT company are the strategic abilities we bring to the table.

We’re not just interested in fixing the latest IT-problem-of-the-week. We’ll do that, but we believe it’s more important to take a step back from present problems and look to the future. Onserve offers expert consulting that looks years into the future to help you realize what measures must be taken now to accommodate later growth.

We will take care of all your IT needs.
