Why you should outsource your IT in 2021
Posted 8th December 2020
We can all safely say that the last year has led to many businesses having to grapple with embracing areas of IT that they may never have considered before. From upgrading wireless network security allowing the compliant deployment of payment card readers, to embracing remote working using Cloud technology, businesses have had to adopt rapid changes in technology. For many SME owners staying abreast with updates and IT management can be time consuming and, sometimes, confusing, which is why it is worth considering outsourcing some or all of your IT to a Managed Service Provider.
LP Networks provide a variety of outsourcing options which can be tailored to the size, operations, and requirements of the business we are partnering with. For companies with an existing IT department we can provide team extensions, allowing inhouse IT staff to focus on a particular project while we run the day-to-day IT operations that you need to keep your business running. Aside from reducing stress levels, our service can also reduce staff costs and the need to hire temporary team members for short term projects. Alternatively, we also offer a Consultancy and VCIO service, providing advice and expert opinions on the best strategy, required resources, and recommended upgrades to ensure that your IT is currently fit for purpose and futureproofed for further technological advancements.
As a full-service MSP (Managed Service Provider), our team of experts can also design, develop, and deliver your required IT solution whilst also maintaining it. This includes regular security updates, daily back-ups, disaster recovery services, and a Service Desk which is open and available when you’re working.
Using a trusted and established IT partner also has the additional benefit that should the worst happen, and we can’t resolve the problem remotely, one of our engineers can visit you on site to get your business up and running again.
Above everything, outsourcing your IT to a company like LP Networks, gives you the peace of mind that your business is compliant to latest industry security standards, reducing the risks of breaches by implementing a multi-layered approach.
As a certified partner to a variety of technology providers, there is the benefit of having the latest technology solutions available, as well as advanced access to knowledge and upcoming technologies and risks.
