Is Your Business Outgrowing Its IT Department?

Is Your Business Outgrowing Its IT Department?

I want you to do something different for a moment: I want you to put yourself in the shoes of a member of your IT team, and walk through their day—just to gain some perspective. With so much riding on your technology, it’s important that you can identify when their requirements are outpacing the time they have to fulfill them.

So, let’s consider what your IT team is responsible for.

Chances Are, Your IT Team is Plenty Busy

So, as your IT person, you arrive at work in the morning with a hefty list of tasks left over from the day before… with more line items and tasks coming in all the time. Not only are there new technologies to adopt and implement, as well as vendors and their relationships to manage, but there are also all the support requests that are sure to start flowing in as soon as the day begins.

Tack the responsibility for backup maintenance, general IT maintenance, and compliance management onto all of this, and that’s a lot for your IT to manage. Just consider how many support calls you could receive on any given day (again, putting you in your IT’s shoes) and remember that these calls are just a part of your responsibilities—there’s all the other stuff to take care of as well.

Feeling stressed yet? Chances are, your IT team does.

Business Size Doesn’t Matter… IT is a Challenging Job

There are plenty of challenges that IT always has to consider, in businesses of any size. This is especially the case with remote work practices adding another layer of difficulty to the updates, security processes, and user error mitigation that the IT department is responsible for.

However, we can help your business make these considerations and meet these challenges, partnering with your existing team members to take a bit of the pressure off.

Not to replace them, mind you, but to support them and enable them to accomplish more. We aren’t out to take over for your internal IT team… or any of your employees, for that matter. Our goal has always been to support the businesses we work with in any way we can.

Need help with keeping your IT in working order day-to-day? We’re on it. Need a specific project completed? Leave it to our team. Regardless of how complicated your IT environment is, our technicians will relish the opportunity. Our prerogative is to prevent your staff from becoming overwhelmed without you having to hire new employees… and, when you work with us, we’ll keep detailed documentation so your IT team will have all the resources they need to manage your tech for themselves—of course, they can always reach out to us for any help as needed.

Reach out to us to find out about our services.

We’ll be happy to talk to you about what we can do for you to assist your IT staff. Give us a call at (774) 213-9701 to learn more.
