The Value of Outsourced IT
Your days are filled with making decisions that will guide your business into the future. It is easy to put your IT needs on the back burner, but that will lead to days spent fighting IT fires rather than focusing on your growth. In the 21st century, technology is at the center of any business. Your entire operation can grind to a halt due to one computer snag; costing you lost productivity and the potential for lost clients. According to recent research by CompTIA, the proactive monitoring that a managed service provider offers reduces your costs by 50% per downtime incident. Outsourcing your IT needs to Midwest IT is the best way to ensure that your business is running smoothly. We leverage enterprise-level applications to support your business and provide a team of friendly, knowledgeable IT professionals for you and your staff.
Gone are the days when your only concerns were a slow internet connection or a finicky printer. The information technology environment of today is increasingly complex; a major firewall breach that threatens your data, your VPN failing, or your VOIP not allowing calls are just three problems your business could face. The costs for keeping a modern office running efficiently on your own can be endless as well. You need to be confident that all of your hardware and software will continue to work for you – not against you. This is a job too challenging for just one computer expert to handle. It is no longer practical, nor preferable, to be a jack of all trades. At the very least, a help desk employee and a systems administrator are required. The average combined salary of these positions is $90,000-$120,000 annually, plus the costs of keeping their training and certifications up to date. These employees would still not be able to handle every computer glitch you are likely to face. In addition to the peace of mind that Midwest IT provides, there are many less obvious financial benefits such as leaner overhead, bulk purchasing and leasing options for hardware and software, as well as compliance with government regulations.
