Should You Outsource Your IT?

Should You Outsource Your IT?

There are several benefits of outsourcing your IT department, whether you are looking to downsize or simply cannot afford the costs for maintaining your own in-house IT help desk and support staff. Some of the benefits you could gain by taking advantage of remote desktop services, include:

  • Better Management of IT Costs – With outsourced IT services and solutions, you know exactly how much these cost, month after month. With in-house IT costs, these are often unpredictable, based upon the hardware, software, and level of technicians you require.
  • 24/7 Support – Whether you are at home or half way around the globe, whenever you need IT support it is available. Plus, there are options to have your servers and network monitored to ensure there are no outages or other problems.

Desktop Virtualization

  • Lower Cost of Ownership – If you use desktop virtualization services, along with outsourced IT support, your total ownership costs are much lower. There is no equipment to purchase, software to install on every workstation, and IT support staff to train.
  • Easier Access to Volume Software Licensing – Outsourced IT firms typically have already spent the time negotiating with software companies in order to provide their clients with options for managed licensing services. As a result, not only do you tend to get a better price, but also the expertise needed to support the most current versions.

These are just a few of the reasons why you might want to outsource some or all of your IT department. For more information and other benefits, contact CyberlinkASP today by calling 972-262-5200.
