If your business is still relying on in-house IT specialists to manage its various devices, networks, and servers, you are potentially risking losses in revenue while absorbing avoidable overheads.
By contrast, using a dedicated third-party IT support company can reap considerable benefits for your company, including increased efficiency and productivity.
Here are the three main advantages when outsourcing IT support services for your Liverpool company.
1. You Save on IT-Related Costs
With more traditional hardware systems, Liverpool businesses often experience digital lag since system upgrades require significant investments of both time and money. An IT support provider such as Corp Networking can help reduce these costs by using cloud-hosted, virtualised environments that utilise the latest technologies and provide 99.99% uptime.
The added advantage is that, when configured in this manner, your company only pays for the IT resources it consumes, and upgrades are cheaper and easier to carry out since you’ll be less reliant on legacy hardware-based systems.
Getting IT support for your Liverpool business gives operational staff the chance to focus on their core duties and frees up extra resources to put towards growing the business instead of investing in new IT infrastructure.
2. Information Security is Improved
The move into the digital age brought the need for a whole new range of security measures. According to recent data, businesses in the UK face an average of 38 ransomware attacks per day. Businesses can be crippled by a successful ransomware attack, as the data in your IT systems is encrypted until you pay a hefty ransom.
Having IT support in place ensures your computer systems are secure from such attacks. Your IT support provider can set up a combination of antivirus programs to thoroughly protect your devices. They will also monitor your network, keep your systems updated, and conduct frequent end-point scans to ensure your network is safe.
There’s no need to rely upon employees to stay one step ahead of the latest threats since your IT support provider will be up-to-date with any viruses, malware, or ransomware tactics and attempted entry points.
The security of your business data is crucial to the running of your company. It’s vital to keep your clients’ information secure. Regulations such as GDPR are in place to protect customer information, and your business needs to comply with these rules and ensure you don’t end up receiving a sizeable fine.
Corp Networking ensures you comply with all regulations regarding data security and protection, meaning you don’t need to dedicate your employees’ time to IT compliance issues.
3. Better Business Continuity and Data Recovery
A system failure is never welcome in any business. When the network or key devices fails, productivity plunges, and your business is left playing catch up once IT experts resolve the issue. Data loss can also result in enormous costs for your business, which is why excellent data backup and disaster recovery protocols are vital.
By paying for dedicated IT support services, you can access 24/7 remote support or on-site emergency recovery teams to keep downtime to a minimum. When working in a virtualised environment, IT specialists can even “go back in time” to recover individual files. Our technicians are trained to provide long term strategies for your IT infrastructure, and we keep your business protected against the latest threats.
Outsourcing IT support not only means your office can return to normal much faster, but you also reduce the likelihood of losing data permanently.
