When considering your IT service options, it can be difficult to know whether to use your own in-house IT team or outsource your IT services.

Here are some of the benefits of outsourcing your IT to a certified Microsoft Gold Partner.

Technical expertise 

By outsourcing your IT to a Microsoft Gold Partner, you gain expertise and knowledge on how best to utilise cloud technology. Digital Transformation initiatives and best practice improve security and remote working through fully implemented solutions such as Azure, Office 365, Teams and SharePoint.

Finding the right IT staff

Outsourcing your IT means that you do not have to go through the ordeal of recruiting one or more people to manage your IT and paying expensive recruitment fees.  No need to worry about covering for sickness, holiday cover or other staff expenses.

Security protection 

When outsourcing your IT, you are less likely to be a victim of cyber-attacks and threats. Most security threats happen from a lack of knowledge, expertise or proactive planning with regards to cybersecurity. By working with a Microsoft Gold Partner, you have a team of IT experts working with you and advising on best practice so that your networks can be secured from cyber-attacks. Utilising the latest security solutions and cloud technologies, such as Azure and Office 365, with best practices, like two-factor authentication, proactive staff training and compliance, will ensure your business’ reliability and continuous protection.

Reliable and secure backup and disaster recovery solutions

Having a DR (Disaster Recovery) plan, daily backups and checks in place to ensure the business systems are robustly backed up and recoverable is critical to the modern business. When outsourcing your IT to an expert company, they will work with you to understand your risks. This results in you having a robust BC (Business Continuity) and Data Integrity plan in place. Many businesses have suffered downtime or even data loss which affects staff productivity and sales.

Increased productivity 

By outsourcing IT support to a Microsoft Gold Partner, it frees up time within your organisation. This enables productivity to increase. A well protected and supported system equals a more reliable network, ensuring your staff can deliver what is important for your business instead of waiting for systems to load.
