Outsourcing Your Technology Needs – We Care Your Needs!
Outsourcing technology, for every company, is different. Some businesses have in-house staff to handle daily activities, but may need outside help to undertake new projects that don’t warrant another full-time employee. When you and your current employees are unable to manage the day-to-day business of your company and build the business satisfactorily, it may be time to consider outsourcing your technology.
With outsourced technology, you can transform most aspects of your organization into an “as a service” offering, allowing you to not only remove the burden of managing technology off of your team’s shoulders but also allowing for immediate cost savings. Are you having a hard time with server management, email hosting, cloud and virtualization services, or in-house phone systems? All of this can be done “as a service,” which helps your business remain competitive and flexible.
Outsourcing doesn’t mean having to move all of your business technology out to a vendor. Ideally, the first thing you should do is identify the strengths and weaknesses of your business in its ability to deliver quality business technology. Once this is established and you have a better idea of what you want (and what you don’t need), you’re in a position to choose the right supplier to add value. Outsourcing anything, whether email, servers, or phone system, takes the same type of thought process for small business owners. While price is a consideration for you, there are many other items to think about when outsourcing part of your business.
However, not every area of the business should be outsourced. Handing off the wrong tasks to a third party can hurt your business more than it can help. Here are some tech tasks which we think its right to outsource.
Along with building a well-crafted site in the first place, it’s important that businesses keep up with their websites, too, which can be an entirely different job. There’s a lot to monitor to ensure that your site stays up to date with the latest tech trends and changes, so outsourcing these tasks can help you maintain a strong Web presence without getting in the way of other important tasks you need to complete.
IT service providers will usually tell you that your data is safe, but businesses should also outsource additional cybersecurity. It’s smarter for businesses to outsource cybersecurity experts than to rely on IT vendors’ guarantees, because no single company can truly guarantee data safety. Simply put, there are IT vendors that provide services, and then there are cybersecurity experts who specialize in anticipating and mitigating threats. Although IT vendors have tight security measures in place, cybersecurity experts provide an extra layer of protection that can prevent disasters and quickly resolve security issues.
Two-factor authentication is a type of security that requires users to have two forms of identification in order to access data, bank accounts and other confidential information. Typically, it’s in the form of physical identification and a security code, or a combination of two completely separate security codes, such as a password only you know and an access code given to you.
We recommend that anyone who deals with sensitive data, such as bank accounts or patent-able technologies, implement two-factor authentication to help IT providers govern access and keep their systems better protected.
When your team is spending all of its time developing products and apps, it can be tedious to test every little aspect to make sure it’s perfect. Outsourcing is a great way to keep your products and apps the best they can be without burning out your developers. Test cases may not be the most desirable tasks, but they’re vital in ensuring your product works.
A business owner takes on a lot of roles in order to keep the company afloat, but there are cases where outsourcing is easy, efficient and inexpensive. As you look ahead to your goals, consider delegating some of these tasks to other professionals. It will give you the freedom and flexibility to commit to other aspects of your business and will streamline your business operations. By expanding the network of professionals associated with your small business, your overall influence and reach will grow.
