With great advances in computer technology come even greater headaches. As a society, we have come to rely 100% on our ability to quickly and effectively connect with others – especially when it comes to business processes. Any glitch in the process, no matter how minor it may seem, will result in lost productivity and potentially lost revenue.
The IT Struggle is Real
Think about the frustrations you’ve experienced in the past at work with computer crashes, slow internet connectivity, computer viruses, lost data and other technical difficulties. We’ve all been there. You can equate the feeling of helplessness like that of being stranded on the side of the road with car trouble. The goals you were trying to achieve with your work are suddenly shut down and you have to figure out what to do next.
The Call for Help
In larger organizations, there is typically an IT department specifically trained and ready to handle these types of situations. If you are lucky, there will be a resource at your beck and call in moments, prepared to swiftly fix the problem. However, IT staff is often stretched so thin that a quick response time is out of the question. In smaller organizations, even if your single IT employee can provide a timelier response, that single person may not have the full breadth of knowledge to correct the problem and sending this one person to continual trainings cuts into any budget.
The truth is that some of the IT solutions provided by your internal team may only serve as a Band-aid and provide a temporary fix. Without analysis of the root cause of the problem, your team may encounter similar issues over and over.
The IT Frustration Solution
Many companies have turned to an IT consultant to identify methods to improve efficiencies, safeguard their data and place more focus on their core business, rather than spending time worrying about IT issues. The 6 benefits of IT consulting include:
- More comprehensive knowledge about effective solutions
- Improved productivity because your computer network remains functional
- Streamlined operations
- Recommendations for system improvements
- Improved system security
- Outsider perspective on ways to improve your current processes
After discussing your internal IT issues with a consultant, you may determine that outsourcing part or all of your IT responsibilities will provide a quicker response time to your IT problems. This can ultimately be very effective and cost-efficient if you hire the right company. Not all IT services companies are created equal: it’s important to do your research to ensure the company you choose has a strong track record of success solving the issues facing your company.
