Many companies are turning to outsourcing different aspects of their business as a way of reducing cost, but there is always a fear that in some cases outsourcing can lead to a reduction in service level.

However when you look to outsourcing your businesses IT support, the the benefits are enormous.

So why is this the case?

Most small to medium size businesses may rely on a few limited IT support resources. The costs associated with providing these resources can be considerable.

To quantify the true cost of your IT department all aspects need to be taken into account including salary, employee NI contributions, company cars, sick pay, agency fees to find the true cost of providing these resources to your business. There is also the human resources element to consider if your IT manager was to leave, who within your organisation would be qualified to find and appoint a suitable replacement.

The internal support department may be doing a reasonable job, they are available during office hours however usually one of the team is a key member and has greater knowledge to support the rest of the team. What happens if this key member of the team finds another job or has to take extended leave, how will the rest of the team cope in their absence? Are you confident that if the key member of the team left, the remainder of the team can step up and fill his or her shoes? Is the team underutilised on a daily basis, do you need that many people in the team only to fill when people are on leave or off sick rather than on a daily basis.
