Outsourcing IT has many benefits and can ease the pressure when managing properties/buildings. Let’s take a look at the advantages of outsourcing your IT needs:
Myth: Outsourcing IT is not a long-term solution
Truth: In this digital era, businesses are constantly changing the way they work, from new technologies as well as general business growth.
By getting to know your current strategies, goals and visions, this will enable your service provider to then tailor solutions to suit your current goals as well as helping to adapt with your future visions. This is just one of the reasons that outsourcing IT is the perfect solution for building managers as a long-term solution.
Myth: Outsourcing IT will mean loss of control
Truth: Outsourcing your IT doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing deal. Businesses and buildings have their own set of IT requirements therefore, utilising an external service provider like Total IT is beneficial as we are able to tailor our solutions to suit your specific needs, whether you need backup solutions, cyber security or compatible hardware.
Working with external providers will also allow you to have a better insight into the functioning of your IT systems and it can actually increase your control to a certain degree, whilst also allowing you to focus on your core building operations.
Myth: Outsourcing IT will create security risks
Truth: Managed service providers tend to have a dedicated security team who will provide proactive approaches to cyber security, using advanced training and tools. This includes proactive reviewing of security tools, approaches, protocols and practices for stopping any attempted attacks. IT providers are also able install intelligent tools that can analyse servers and networks in real-time, allowing immediate responses to any threats that may arise.
With enhanced security teams having a proactive approach to security and providing innovative and automated security tools, this leads to a high level of productivity and a trusting relationship between client and IT Partner.
