Why You Should Outsource Your I.T. Support
In a business world that fully relies on its systems and network to be fully functioning, having "onsite I.T. support" is critical to the productivity and efficiency of every business. And while it is nice to have a tech guy down the hall who can fix your issues at the snap of a finger, having an in-house tech can be expensive for any Small or Medium Business owner.
The Cost of an In-House Tech
According to PayScale.com, the national median income for an in-house IT tech is currently running at a bit over $40,000 per year, with the upper end of that range reaching nearly $60,000 annually. For more experienced technicians, the median pay rate is above $46,000 annually, with the upper range much closer to $65,000 yearly. These pay ranges include salary, bonuses, and profit sharing for in-house employees, but do not include benefits, such as health insurance.
If we choose a salary of $45,000 for the purpose of this comparison, we must then add benefits, sick pay, vacation time, and your annual payroll tax. These will total approximately $13,000 a year. Purchasing an IT Management System application could easily set you back by $1000, plus training in the new application, which would likely cost about $2500 per user. The total for one-time expenses will range from $3500 to $10,000, depending on the number of user desktops involved. Total cost of salary and benefits for your new IT specialist would be about $58,000 per year, though it could be more.
Why Outsourcing Your I.T. Saves You Money
While outsourcing your I.T. support needs may seem extravagant due to the hourly rate that such companies charge, this type of support can be extremely cost-effective because of the expertise being purchased, the experience the techs who visit are able to offer, and the backup provided by the team that supports them. Further, as a small business owner, you should easily be able to budget for the monthly expense, based on the system evaluation and recommendations of the company you employ as your IT support team. And instead of paying almost $60,000 in salaries and benefits for an in-house tech, the average monthly costs for Small or Medium Businesses to oursource their I.T. support needs is between $1,000 and $2,500, which is anywhere from $12,000 to $30,000 annually.
Trading "Good" for "Great"
So to recap, instead of paying at least $60,000 in salaries and benefits for an in-house tech, you could be paying $30,000 or less for an entire company to handle your I.T. support. And not only would you be saving over 50% on your I.T. expenses, you'd would be gaining better service by using that I.T. company. So in reality, you would be trading a good thing for a great one.
