PERTH, AUSTRALIA, October 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For most companies, choosing between managed IT services and in-house IT can be daunting. In our latest blog post, we have tried clarifying the difference between the two, and showing pros and cons of both. Don't hesitate to call us before making the final decision, we can help you find the best possible solution.
Advantages and disadvantages of In-House IT
Having an in-house IT team or a person is a great asset. You have a professional or a team working with your staff, allowing them to have a better understanding of your business and therefore identify possible issues that may arise throughout time. Having someone immediately respond to the issues helps in overall operations. Insights that someone within the team can gain by being on the spot are also of value since it can be tough to translate them to an outsourced partner.
As for the disadvantages, there are several when having your own IT team. The cost of an in-house IT department can be steep: latest technology, constant training, tools, salaries, as well as unexpected technical issues. Other than that, IT staff usually works during the usual business hours so any additional engagement can ramp up the cost and not be as efficient.
Advantages and disadvantages of Managed IT Services
Whether you're looking for simple tech support or complex IT projects, the advantages of having a good managed IT services partner are numerous. Even though it may seem that the cost for having an outsourced partner may be high, the long-term investment is worth it. A reliable managed IT services company already has the know-how, latest technology, and tools needed for proper maintenance and 24/7 service to your company, they become your trusted partner. A managed IT services company has a team of professionals to assist in any project. Constant training keeps them up to date with latest industry developments and a fresh pair of eyes may just be what you need to boost your business.
When it comes to downsides of having managed IT services, there aren't as many. One may be physical presence, but even that will not pose a problem if you find a company to suit your needs. Additionally, these services do come at a higher price, but, as we've already mentioned, they are less expensive than an in-house department in the long run.
