Managed IT: Is In-House IT Really Your Friend?


We’ve all had a “fake friend” or two, but you probably don’t expect one to be lurking right inside your business. Today, we’ll take a look at in-house IT and decide whether you can count on it when the going gets tough, or if you’d be better off with a friend like managed IT services.

The Truth

Many companies are loyal to the idea of in-house IT because it’s safe, familiar, and–at least at first glance–passably efficient. However, the truth is that in-house IT might not really be your friend. Let’s look at the facts!

#1: It’s expensive.

In-house IT means you’re paying full-time employees–plus you’re directly responsible for repairs, maintenance, supplies, and more.

#2: It’s frustrating.

As great as your in-house tech team might be, the chances are that they don’t have all the answers–and probably not the right tools, either.

#3: It’s not all that efficient.

Sure, in-house IT masquerades as an efficient solution because you’re doing it yourself, but the truth is that it wastes time, money, and energy. On top of that, you might be missing out on all kinds of great tech solutions, not to mention some pretty important advances in security.

The good news is that, if you’re sick of in-house IT being a “fake friend” to your business, you have another option: managed IT services. By outsourcing your IT needs, you’ll have a tech partner you can count on–not to mention all the answers, resources, and support you could ever hope for, without breaking the bank.

Managed IT allows you to put experts on the job, which, in turn, frees you up to take care of your own tasks and responsibilities–all with the peace of mind that comes from reliable, secure tech.
