When you are operating a small business, whether it’s a fledgling organization or one that’s been in operation for decades, it is tempting to try to do everything yourself. From payroll to stocking paper products, every task completed feels like money in the bank. But when it comes to IT, there are good reasons to consider staff augmentation:
Outsourcing Gives You Access to Experts
There are many areas you can handle yourself as a business owner. Still, when it comes to IT, staff augmentation can make a big difference in areas like productivity, cost savings, customer experience, and more. A network specialist can make changes that allow for better connectivity and performance, speeding up business processes and improving the user experience for both your employees and your customers. That’s just one example.
When it’s time to implement an upgrade or open up a new location, IT staff augmentation is ideal. You can shorten your timeline, stick to your budget and eliminate obstacles before they occur when you have a seasoned IT project manager overseeing the process.
You Get More Time For Your Business
No business owner wants to spend time trying to troubleshoot a network outage or try to understand whether a phishing email caused significant damage when they could be taking a potential customer to lunch. You need to focus on what you are good at and your business focus while allowing someone else to handle IT.
Staff Augmentation Trims Your Budget
You could hire an in-house tech specialist, but knowing enough about IT yourself may be challenging to ensure you’re getting the right fit. Then there’s the salary and benefits. With outsourcing, you can access a wide range of expertise, not just one programmer or one network engineer. You can bring in the expert you need for the project you’re prioritizing and pay for exactly the tasks you need them to complete.
You Have New Potential for Growth
Sometimes it is challenging to identify the elements that may be preventing you from your growth potential. Is a slow-loading website causing visitors to click away? Maybe it’s time to upgrade your communications technology because you didn’t realize it’s ineffective in connecting customers to the right person. There is a lot of benefit in bringing in a tech expert that may help you transition to a new phase of exciting growth for your company.
Your In-House IT Team Needs Staff Augmentation
Maybe you have an in-house IT specialist or a full IT team, but you realize you need specific skills or expertise for an upcoming project. Staff augmentation may be the answer. It prevents you from overburdening your in-house team and allows them to remain focused on their priorities.
