The Top 10 Benefits of Outsourcing IT through Managed Services

Managed IT Services generate immediate benefits.

1. Compliance and Security
By outsourcing a qualified tech company that is familiar with Healthcare Compliance standards, you can rest assured that your company is minimizing the security risks associated with maintaining patient data, payment information, sensitive health information, and more.

2. Control IT Costs
Outsourcing transforms fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you to budget effectively. In other words, only pay for what you use when you need it.

3. Increase Competitiveness and Efficiency
Organizations that try to do all IT Services in-house themselves can have much higher research, development, and implementation time, all of which increase costs and are ultimately passed on to customers.

4. Level the Playing Field
Outsourcing can help companies act “big” by giving them access to the similar technology and expertise that large companies enjoy. An independent third-party managed cost structure and economy of scale can give your company a competitive advantage.

5. Qualified doesn’t Equal Experienced
Few problems are new for leading IT service companies, which see related issues multiple times. An in-house IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they train. We’d all rather be an experienced doctors; the same is true for IT.

6. Quickly Implement New Technology
A quality outsourced IT service organization will have the resources to start new projects immediately. Handling the same project in-house might involve weeks or months to hire the right people, train them, and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will bring years of experience, in the beginning, saving time and money.

7. Reduce Labor Costs
Hiring and training an IT staff can be very expensive, and temporary employees don’t always meet your expectations. We let you focus your human resources where you need them most.

8. Reduce risk
Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions, and technologies change quickly. Outsourcing providers assume and manage much of this risk for you, with specific industry knowledge, especially security and compliance issues. We, generally, are much better at deciding how to reduce risk in our areas of expertise.

9. Stay Focused on Your Core Business
Businesses have limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing can help your business stay focused on your core business and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.

10. Trained, Experienced, Qualified, Certified
If you’re not an IT expert, how do you assure an employee is qualified? Certifications like Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) are vital, but so is experience.
