Why It’s Time To Fire Your IT Guy

Looking for a way to save your business money? Start by rethinking your approach to IT.

In this day and age, a full IT department isn’t a necessary business expense. This is especially true for businesses with only a handful of employees. It’s much more efficient and budget-friendly to invest in IT services that support your business, rather than the salary and overhead that come with a full-time employee.

If you recognize the arguments below from your latest team meeting, it’s time to talk. Give us a call at (904) 606-6011 or email to learn more about meeting your IT needs with a top-quality managed service provider!

Reason #1: Your business is mostly or fully remote.

 Especially in the era of COVID-19, more and more businesses are eschewing the office in favor of 100% remote work environments. With these kinds of policies in place, it becomes even more important to have flexibility when it comes to your business technology.

A managed service provider (or MSP) like Grand Technology Solutions is not limited by geography or driving distance. We can help your team get up and running at the drop of a hat, from anywhere in the world.

 Reason #2: Your business is “too small” for an IT department.

 When you run a small business, you try to save money every way you can. One of the best ways to stretch your budget is to invest in a low-cost service that offers the same benefits without the cost of a full-time employee.

This is particularly true for small teams. It’s hard to justify the cost of someone to take care of your technology needs when you only have a handful of employees. Instead, consider an MSP that provides everything an IT department would—on-call service, technology and software support, etc.—for a fraction of the cost.

 Reason #3: Your day-to-day business changes rapidly.

We get it—2020 has been a crazy year! Businesses around the world have been forced to adapt to rapidly changing scenarios and work environments. Small businesses that already face a ton of day-to-day changes have been hit the hardest by these daily fluctuations. If one day you need to work in your home office, but have to give a virtual client presentation across town the next, you need an IT provider who can work around your schedule and your needs.

A remote managed service provider like GTS is the best choice for businesses that deal with a lot of moving pieces. Where large-scale corporate IT departments suffer from a lack of personal connection, GTS gets to know you and your business inside and out. We do this so that we can predict your needs before they change, and help you find real, immediate solutions to your technology troubles. The best way to keep IT troubles from impacting your business is to address them before they wreak havoc. And at GTS, you’ve got a team in your corner 24/7/365.

 Reason #4: Your business handles frequent onboarding, training, and employee changes.

Are you hiring remotely? Does your team experience a lot of changeover? Do you work with an army of contractors? Teams with lots of fluctuation have unique needs when it comes to IT, from hardware provisions to software support and everything in between. If your company employs a bring-your-own-device policy, there’s also the issue of mobile device management.

How do you keep track of all the moving pieces and lock down your company’s security when your team is scattered to the winds, and everyone has their work email available on their smartphones?

The answer is to call GTS. We can fully support your team from anywhere in the world, whether they’re located in our hometown of Jacksonville, Florida or as far off as Timbuktu. We’ve got you covered!
