You outsource services in your business every single day. Are you shaking your head “no”? Do you think you have in-house employees doing everything for your organization? Think again. If you turn the lights on when you arrive in your office each morning, you’ve outsourced your electricity needs to your power company – unless of course, you generate your own power. When you bring your trash and recycling out to the dumpsters, you’re outsourcing your waste management needs to the garbage company or county waste remove services.
You probably don’t consider these services as “outsourcing”, but whenever you enlist the services of an outside agency rather than have your business handle it yourself – you’re outsourcing. You could run your business off the grid, generating solar power or using one of those stationary bikes that can generate electricity when you pedal. But let’s face it: if you’re generating your own electricity, you’re not focused on running your business and increasing revenue.
Outsourcing your IT needs is the same thing. You get someone like NSA to handle your IT needs, while you spend your time focused on running the daily operations of your business and making more money. Outsourcing IT is simply smarter – just like outsourcing your electric needs and your recycling and trash.
You need technology to operate. Just like you need electricity. Waste removal. The post office. Payroll and accounting services. When your technology doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to, you lose potential revenue, experience serious losses in productivity, and have to spend time and resources trying to fix the problem. Putting systems in place to fix technology problems and restore deleted or lost files are just some of the benefits of outsourcing IT.
Outsourced IT Benefits
Think about the electric company again. They provide your office or organization with power at a lower cost than what it would take to set up a battery and on-site generator or some other form of alternative energy for your building. This is the cost benefits of scale. Outsourcing IT offers the same cost benefits of scale you’ll gain the support of a professional technology company that makes it their business to fully understand and support hundreds or thousands of systems at a lower cost than your on-site staff could provide the same level of service.
Outsourcing IT provides the benefit of time savings. When you outsource your disaster recovery, data backup, and ongoing monitoring needs to NSA, your team can use the time they used to spend on these tasks on more productive activities that could generate more revenue for the company.
Also, and perhaps most importantly, outsourcing IT to a managed services provider such as NSA gives you access to experience. Over 30 years of experience, to be exact! Your accounting service has to stay up to date with all of the latest tax laws, and they make it their business to do just that.
