Here is an interesting question that comes our way once in a while, in one form or another: Do you really need an outsourced IT provider if you have great computer and communications equipment? After all, if you spend big money on top-of-the-line technology, shouldn’t that equipment take care of you?
While it’s certainly good to buy quality technology components, spending a lot of your systems doesn’t remove the need for a quality outsourced IT team.
For one thing, even the best hardware can fail and give you problems. And for another, you can’t get the most out of your equipment if you aren’t using it properly. That means having someone with the right expertise and certifications installing and configuring it, performing regular maintenance, and making sure that the pieces all work together as they should (even with the best technology, compatibility can be a major issue).
Perhaps bigger than all of these issues, however, is the money that it takes to get great hardware for your company in the first place. If you’re going to make that kind of investment, then doesn’t it make sense to hire a good outsourced IT provider to make sure it lasts, and that you’re getting all of the bottom-line benefits from it that you should be?
