When many business people look at whether to outsource IT or hire someone in-house, they typically compare the monthly cost of the IT service provider versus the salary and benefits of an employee. Of course this is a good place to start, but it overlooks one of the hidden benefits of a high-quality service provider: experience.
Yes, you can hire an experienced IT person; however, they rarely have the experience of a team at an IT services provider. For example, our team has done 5 email migrations (moving email to cloud providers) in the last 3 months. We have a documented process to make sure the technical aspects go smoothly as well as the end-user experience. In most cases, end users do not even realize there was a migration.
An experienced team can often get a project done in one-third or less time than an inexperienced IT professional, because they have first-hand experience with what works and what does not work. They combine technical expertise with project management skills to make sure things go smoothly. And when specific team members specialize in different technical areas, you always have an expert working on your project.
So if you are considering whether an outsourced IT team or an in-house employee is a better fit for your organization, remember that IT services providers can typically finish projects faster and more efficiently because of their experience.
