Managed Services, it’s that phrase again: pondered curiously by business owners and feared by IT departments. Why are there so much negative connotations attached to the thought of Managed Services? And why are so many people in the web/IT industry unsure of what it actually means? Here at LIMA, we want to clear up the myths surrounding outsourcing, and show you the real potential and possibilities behind it.
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
This is why many businesses, bursting at the seams with a heavy workload day in, day out, consider outsourcing all the backed-up, resource-swallowing work. Time is precious for businesses in 2015, more so than ever, and too many are snowed under with menial tasks, but the reality is that outsourcing has become unmentionable in business, because the question on the IT department’s lips is: what about my job? CEO’s are cautious of talking about it and technical teams are worrying about it. It’s time to bust the myth of teams losing their jobs and start to look at the positive reality of Managed Services.
Find Your Innovators, Allow Your Team to Step up
Much like when you take a break from work, and the cloudy haze of daily to-do lists settles, leaving you free to think of your next big creative idea; your IT team can find a new lease of life when the workload is taken off their shoulders. Do you have a team member who’s been swotting up on his app building knowledge? Is there another member who’s always pitching new projects to you, only to be turned down because of time constraints? And what about the powerhouses, the workhorses, the true team players that really should be using their skillset for more advanced tasks? This is the reality of modern business life, and it’s these sorts of situations that make Managed Services so effective for new business growth.
Once you turn the tables you can see what outsourcing means for your business, and more importantly, for your employees: their wellbeing and personal career goals can benefit and flourish.
