7 Benefits of Outsourcing IT Support for Small Businesses

August 24, 2020

What if you found out you were wasting money from your business's budget while a wealth of IT knowledge lay within reach?

Outsourcing IT support is a popular solution for small businesses that want to save money while guaranteeing data security and first-class maintenance.

Read on to find out how a Managed Services Provider (MSP) can assist with different business objectives.

Why Is Outsourcing IT Support Beneficial for Businesses?

There are many advantages for entrusting an MSP with your IT needs. Let's explore seven reasons why small businesses are opting to outsource their IT support.

1. Significant Financial Savings

In-house IT technicians cost a lot of money. The expenses associated with hiring and training an internal tech department are huge.

For small and medium businesses, it is far more profitable to enlist an external team to manage your requirements. 

What's more, you can manage your IT support budget and foresee all expenditures with a monthly flat-fee rate.

2. No Distractions

Time spent puzzling over complex IT issues is time taken away from providing excellent customer service and growing your business. By allowing a team of experts to handle problems ranging from networks to servers, you can focus on what's really important. 

3. Protection Against Data Loss

With external IT support, you can rest easy knowing your data is protected against malware infections. At Alura Business Solutions, we implement sophisticated digital security strategies to safeguard your data.

Disaster Recovery is one of our many areas of expertise, which means we can help get you back on track in a worst-case scenario.

4. Expertise at Your Fingertips

With technology advancing rapidly, it's becoming harder and harder to stay on top of it. Small businesses can utilize remote assistance from IT specialists who offer sophisticated solutions.

By entrusting an MSP to handle your IT needs, you're giving your business access to an abundance of experience and knowledge. We're on hand to fix any problems and collaborate on solutions for virtually any system—day and night.

5. Scalability

As your business grows, so will your IT needs. MSPs can provide solutions as and when required. It's essential that technology keeps up with a rapidly growing business, and outsourcing is a surefire way to keep up efficiency and eradicate downtime

6. Ensure Compliance Standards

Sufficient data protection is paramount in this day and age. Staying on top of regulatory changes is hard enough without the additional burden of data security and malware threats. 

You can remove all IT-related anxiety by delegating these issues to an external team.

7. Tailored Service 

An outsourced IT support team has a wealth of experience and can adjust its services to fit your needs. Here at Alura, we have a range of services and solutions to fit all small businesses.

From Project Management to Infrastructure Design, we're here to help small businesses achieve their goals.
