IT department outsourcing, why do it?

There is a lot to think about when it comes to outsourcing the IT function of your business. Some weigh the options of keeping everything in house by hiring someone themselves. Others, don’t want the stress and financial burdens of a full-time employee so they look to outsourcing. Whether you’re looking or not, know the rewards of IT department outsourcing can give you good insight on if it’s a good fit for your business or not.


Take a look at the following rewards you can expect from IT outsourcing.


The Rewards


Cost savings

With IT outsourcing, you can see cost savings such as, leaner overhead, bulk pricing for hardware and software, software licensing discounts, as well as government regulation compliance. Station 28 is your one stop IT shop, consolidating your recurring bills to just one provider. 

Knowledgeable staff

When you choose to outsource, companies (like Station 28) provide you with the most experience technician for the job at hand. With insourcing, you may not know what to look for, so you may hire the wrong person for the job.

Why Should You Outsource Your IT

Access to top resources and technology 

Technology and software is ever-changing, meaning you have to stay on top of it all to be successful. You can’t possibly stay on top of all the new releases in tech and software as one person in a company, so why not outsource? If you outsource with us, you’ll have the technological support of more than just one person. This means that with our advice and care, your IT dollars will be spent wisely.


If you’re looking to just hire an IT professional for 20 hours a week, outsourcing is the way to go. Along with saving money, outsourcing gives you the control over how many hours a week you need a technician for a specific job. This flexibility allows you to outsource for the job at hand, no matter the size.

Current employee satisfaction 

With outsourcing, your current employees don’t have to worry about their job’s security. It also reduces employee burnout from those that were tasked with the overflow of IT work because “someone needs to do it”. Your current employees will be satisfied to go back to the job they were hired to do, leading to a hire retention rate.


Now that you checked out some of the rewards of IT department outsourcing, there’s a ton to think about. What do you do next? Well, you can still choose to hire internally OR you can build a relationship with a qualified IT outsourcing company (like Station 28).
