Sometimes business owners and decision makers don’t always know all of the benefits of outsourcing their IT Support. We’ve put together this handy infographic to give you an insight into a few of the key benefits of choosing a London based IT support company.
In-house IT staff will only have limited knowledge of your computer problems. Here’s why having outsourced IT support staff is a better idea:
- Staff are always trained to support the latest software and technology
- They have a vast amount of experience
- They are specialists and experts in their chosen disciplines
- You’ll have a larger pool of talent and experience to draw on than exists in your team
- Outsourced IT support staff can diagnose and fix problems
With in-house staff, you have to rely on them to be on-site and available before you can get help. Those problems are a thing of the past with outsourced IT support:
- Most problems are repairable from a remote connection to your computer
- An engineer will attend to your IT problems immediately. See our SLAs.
- If anything requires a visit to your site, this isn’t a problem.
- You are the IT support company’s number one priority, and get treated as such.
- Many IT support services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If your computer systems have a hardware fault, an in-house team will be slow at getting those items replaced. But that is not the case with outsourced IT support:
- Outsourced IT support companies keep in stock many commonly required parts.
- In most cases, they can get you the parts you need on a same-day basis.
- They have accounts with major IT distributors, so getting parts isn’t an issue.
- They can even source rare or hard to find parts.
