The debate between in-house and outsourced IT is eternal, and we sit a little biased on the side of outsourced, being a Managed Services Provider. But from a logistics and cost perspective, outsourced almost always wins. We’ve written a lot of blogs arguing outsourced over in-house. If you’re holding onto your in-house staff because you’re afraid of change, because they hold your keys or because you feel bad making a switch, it’s time to delve a little further into the actual numbers surrounding in-house IT support. Let’s break down the unseen expenses that businesses have with in-house IT departments:
Don’t go it alone in your recruitment of an internal IT department who you may struggle to hire and determine appropriate skill set. Engage an outsourced IT provider to help you either form your in-house team properly (which typically comes at a sizable initial investment) or determine an appropriate outsourced strategy for your organization. What some organizations don’t realize is that hybrid solutions where the the in-house technician is employed by an outsourced provider can be an extremely successful way to still get the management tools and help desk resources, but have an onsite resource for employee setup and peace of mind.
The reality is that in-house IT is significantly more costly from almost every angle than outsourcing. Consider the true costs and then look at finding the right partner to outsource to.
