How to Choose an IT Support Company
When searching for a new IT support services company in Surrey you should always consider the following:
- In the event of an emergency (server or internet down), will there be someone to answer your call and take immediate action?
- Are on-site visits included? Most work can be done remotely, however, having a professional available to go on-site when needed can be essential.
- Are there any hidden costs? All expenditures should be clear from the start.
- Is the helpdesk local? This will ensure action can be taken immediately.
- Will the IT support company assist with third party suppliers in order to get you up and running again?
- Do they offer support & configuration for all mobile devices? Eg. iPhone, Android, etc.
- Will they proactively monitor your important devices to ensure potential problems are fixed before they cause you downtime?

1. Control IT Costs
Outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you budget effectively. In other words, only pay for what you use when you need it.
2. Reduce Labor Costs
Hiring and training an IT staff can be very expensive, and temporary employees don’t always live up to your expectations. Outsourcing lets you focus your human resources where you need them most.
3. Trained, Experienced, Qualified, Certified
If you’re not IT trained, how do you assure an employee is qualified? Certifications like Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) are important, but so is experience.
4. Qualified doesn’t Equal Experienced
Few problems are new for leading IT service companies, which see related problems multiple times. An in-house IT employee leads an isolated existence no matter how much they train. We’d all rather an experienced doctor; the same is true for IT.
5. Increase Efficiency and Competitiveness
Organisations that try to do all IT Services in-house themselves can have much higher research, development, and implementation time, all of which increase costs and are ultimately passed on to customers.
6. Quickly Implement New Technology
A quality outsourced IT service organisation will have the resources to start new projects right away. Handling the same project in-house might involve weeks or months to hire the right people, train them, and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will bring years of experience in the beginning saving time and money.
7. Stay Focused on Your Core Business
Businesses have limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing can help your business stay focused on your core business and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.
8. Reduce risk
Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions, and technologies all change very quickly. Outsourcing providers assume and manage much of this risk for you, with specific industry knowledge, especially security and compliance issues. They generally are much better at deciding how to avoid risk in their areas of expertise.
9. Level the Playing Field
Most small businesses can’t afford to match the in-house support services that larger companies maintain. Outsourcing can help small companies act “big” by giving them access to the similar technology, and expertise that large companies enjoy. An independent third party managed cost structure and economy of scale can give your company a competitive advantage.
10. Compliance and Security
Is your firewall up to date? Do you have a DMZ installed? Do you audit your Workstations and Servers? Has your company implemented PCI security standards and work to maintain those standards? For example, Businesses have more ways than ever to prosper by taking many forms of payments such as Credit and Debit Cards to name a few, but with these forms of transacting also comes the need for due diligence. By outsourcing a qualified Managed IT Services company who is familiar with PCI Compliance standards you can be rest assured that your company is minimising the risks associated with maintaining client data, credit card numbers, sensitive competitive information and more.
