IT solutions can be a service that may be performed onsite with an in-house team or remotely through an outsourced vendor. As the cloud has expanded and many businesses have shifted services to remote providers, the conversion to offsite resources has become more viable, more cost-effective, and more attractive than hiring in-house staff. In many instances, the quality of service is better, and your company can save on overhead expenses while tapping into a greater knowledge base.
When considering remote versus onsite support, assess what your business must do to initiate and implement an onsite IT team:
- Identify, hire and maintain qualified employees
- Pay wages, payroll taxes, and benefits
- Train and certify IT staff
- Create a physical workspace
- Purchase and install the required equipment
- Cover additional telecommunication expenses such as in-coming toll-free calls
Remote Versus Onsite Support
Shifting to remote services is less expensive overall than hiring and maintaining a professional, full-time staff. In the outsourced model, many of the associated costs are spread across multiple clients. Also, your company will avoid the ongoing expenses associated with professional training and certification of IT staff.
Moreover, outsourced groups utilize sophisticated monitoring and exception reporting systems to be able to be quickly notified of problems and begin problem resolution. Network components can be proactively monitored for server health, computer health, data
This is critical in the competitive, global marketplace. One disruption can negatively impact your business.
Remote Saves on Overhead
Choosing remote versus onsite support helps you avoid other expenses such as upfront or hidden costs. Hiring an onsite IT team means investments in computers, office space, desks, telephone extensions, payroll taxes, workmen’s comp, insurance, vacation, and other benefits. For many companies, maintaining a full-time IT staff with salaried professionals is significantly cost-prohibitive and not a viable option.
