IT Services for Accounting Firms
Outsourcing Your IT Department Saves Money
Firms that have already outsourced their IT department know that outsourcing saves money. For those that are still employing an internal IT department and are considering outsourcing, the general rule is that a company saves about 50% by outsourcing IT, as compared to employing internal IT staff. The reduction is from three main areas:
- Savings from not paying employment benefits of your full-time internal IT staff;
- Savings from not double paying for internal IT staff and additional consultants that your internal IT staff must hire when they do not have the knowledge or experience to solve more complex problems (our IT staff has expertise in almost all areas of IT); and
- Savings from paying for IT services only as needed, rather than pay IT staff when they are idle.
