Nine Key Reasons to Consider Outsourcing Your IT Support To NetSystemsPLUS, LLC


The decision to outsource your IT support or keep it in-house is difficult for any business.  Our experience in providing first class IT support services has enabled us to compile a list of 9 key reasons to help you consider if this is the right choice for you:

1. Reduce Your Costs

The average annual salary of an in-house IT Manager in central Florida is approximately $40k to $68K per annum. Added to this are costs for recruitment, additional company benefits, and on-going training to keep their skills up to date.

For most businesses, an in-house IT specialist is a luxury that they simply cannot afford. However, they are still left with a large potential cost to their business in periods of downtime resulting in loss of productivity and staff spending their valuable time trying to solve problems they do not completely understand.

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support, your costs are reduced and consolidated into a fixed monthly payment allowing you to easily budget or opting for a pay-as-you-go system based on a fixed hourly rate.

2. Lack of In-House Expertise

Your businesses IT needs may peak or recede, so there isn't enough work for a dedicated person. You may be a small company and simply don't have enough space for another staff member.

Although you are heavily dependent on your IT systems to run your business, you can't justify a full-time, in-house employee. Therefore, there are no experts on hand if you have a critical failure and you will need to resort to costly emergency support should this occur.

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support, you can call a dedicated Help Desk and speak to an IT technician as often as you like.  A team of experts are always on hand to help fix any problem you may encounter.

3. Complement Your In-House Expertise

You may have a dedicated IT person in-house or a designated employee looking after your IT in addition to their normal job.

You rely heavily on them for the continuity of your IT systems and running of your business. What happens if there is critical failure and they are on holiday, off sick or at an external event or meeting?

What if they are already dealing with a crisis and another one arises at the same time?  Or if there is a serious issue and they try everything they can think of, but it is beyond their capabilities?

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support you always have a team of experts on call that are never off sick or take any holidays.  They can come up with solutions to complement and support your own internal IT staff.

4. Recruiting Your Own IT Staff

Perhaps you're thinking about employing your own internal IT person. If you are not from a technical background how do you ensure that you recruit people with the right skill set for your business?  Do they have all the correct certifications necessary to become an asset to your business?

Recruitment is a tough, time-consuming and expensive process at the best of times. It is easy to be confused and bamboozled with technical jargon if you are not IT savvy which could turn out to be a costly mistake for your business if you employ the wrong people.

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support, you don't have to worry. You will always have on call a team of highly trained IT specialists equipped with the latest industry qualifications and certifications, most up-to-date technical knowledge and skill sets available.

5. Focus on Running Your Business

Your time is precious and should be spent concentrating on your core business activities like your staff, costs and most importantly meeting the needs of your customers. The last thing you need is to waste time worrying and sorting out IT issues.

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support will give you complete peace of mind, take the stress out of managing your technology needs and allow you to focus on running your business.

6. Increase Staff Productivity

You may think that you are saving money by keeping the responsibility for your technology in-house and distributing it internally. The likelihood is your employees are not focusing on their primary roles and are being constantly distracted trying to deal with time consuming IT issues which dramatically reduced their productivity.

Using NetSystemsPLUS IT support, your employees can call a dedicated Help Desk where a technician will quickly diagnose and fix their problem.  This will speed up problem resolution, reduce your downtime and allow staff to be more productive by focusing on their core duties.

7. Utilizing the Latest Technology

9. Issue Avoidance

It is more than likely that your current IT strategy is based on a 'break/fix' scenario. This means that by the time you know there is a problem, your business and staff's productivity has already been affected and you typically experience prolonged periods of costly downtime or actual cessation of business completely until such time your network is back online.
