Apart from the cost savings outsourcing can provide, other benefits include:
Professional and specialist IT staff are in high demand and usually command a high price. Social costs and annual leave mean looking at outsourced remote staff becomes a desirable proposition.
You only pay for what you use.
IT departments often have to juggle many different projects. Multiple projects increase the risk of costs running out of control or over time. Outsourcing provides a fixed budget and allows team members to focus on their main tasks.
An added benefit is that team members and managers who see projects handled by outsourced staff can concentrate on reducing cost.
Specialist skills requirements can be outsourced: From software and app development, server migration and ERP integration. Outsourcing with SIGAM brings better-managed resources to your organisation. Your team is assigned a native English-speaking project manager, ensuring your exact needs are met.
Focus on core activities
During periods of change and growth, outsourcing can help your company make the transition smoothly. IT departments are often overloaded with requests for modifications to existing architecture and other support issues. Outsourcing routine and mundane tasks in turbulent times means your organisation can focus on its goals and meet its customer requirements.
Many organisations are continuously training staff to meet CPD goals. Holidays and maternity leave can mean your employees are not always available when most needed. Outsourced IT staff are available for tasks such as monitoring your existing infrastructure. Adding this flexibility means you will not be delayed in meeting your organisation's most urgent requirements.
HR management becomes easy, as our professional project managers oversee your outsourced staff. There are no extra social or administrative costs to consider. Times of high staff turnover can be managed using outsourced skills.
Continuity and risk management.
Viruses, ransomware and other cyber-threats pose a genuine risk to your organisation. Outsourcing the administration of core functions means your organisation is up-to-date on the latest anti-virus software. Options include ensuring your data is backed up, migrating to a hosted Exchange and 24/7 remote monitoring of vital functions. Remote system and network monitoring is a viable method of highlighting potential threats and acting on them to ensure your business continuity.
