In house IT services can be costly and inefficient. To make life easier for your business, it is worthwhile to consider outsourcing your company IT management through external managed IT services. Here are our top 10 benefits of outsourcing your business IT needs. 
 
  1. Reduction of Labour Costs.
New staff are expensive. You may need to train them and sometimes new employees don’t live up to the required expectations of the role. By outsourcing your IT work, it allows your business to focus its existing resources where they need to be the most. 
 
  1. Reduction and control of IT Costs.
Outsourcing services allow you to change fixed costs (such as the salary of an IT manager) to variable costs, which provides you more flexibility and means you only pay for what you use and when you need it.  
 
  1. Qualified and Certified.
If you’re about to hire someone and you are not IT trained - there is a higher risk that your potential hire may not be qualified to the level you require. Outsourcing puts the responsibility of your IT network in the hands of qualified professionals who know what they're doing.
 
  1. Qualified doesn't mean experience.
A new University graduate may have a lot of theoretical knowledge but may be limited in terms of his or her practical experience. For established industry professionals, with a wide variety of professional experience, we are in a much better position to handle the variety of IT related issues you may experience. 
 
  1. Increase Efficiency.
Staying up to date with the ever changing IT world takes time. Researching and developing your IT team not only costs money but also takes time. Time, that you can save by outsourcing.
 
  1. Fast implementation of New Technology.
At Qbit, we have all the resources available to allow you to launch new projects right away. Handling new projects in house could potentially take a significant amount of time depending on your staffing resources and capability.
 
  1. Stay focused on your Business Needs.
Every employee in a business has a limited amount of time and attention they can put to each task. Outsourcing your IT needs ensures your staff to optimize their output for the given roles and not be concerned about the company's IT network and security.
 
  1. Risk Reduction
Every investment comes with a certain level of risk. Things change very quickly in the rapidly developing IT field so by outsourcing your IT needs to specialists, it minimizes the amount of business risk you place upon your company by placing it in the hands of industry experts. 
 
  1. Level off the Playing Field.
Small Businesses can potentially be limited by limited resources especially when compared to larger corporations that can handle more resources in house. Outsourcing your IT services to an IT specialist company gives small to medium enterprises businesses access to high quality and reliable and reputable IT support.
 
  1. Security and Compliance.
If you take online payments, security and compliance is crucial to protect your clients information. You also need to constantly be on top of all aspects of your IT security from firewalls, server updates and audits. By outsourcing to Qbit, you’re ensuring that your company is minimizing the amount of risk you take on by better securing yours and your clients personal and sensitive information.
