Help Desk Outsourcing Benefits
1. Save Money on IT Support
Outsourcing your help desk support is one of the best ways to save money on these services. Unlike internal hires, which in addition to salary come with overhead expenses like training, benefits, and equipment, your outsourced support comes at a much lower cost.
Help desks also tend to have high turnover rates. For an internal team, that can mean perpetually spending money on recruitment and hiring. When you outsource these services, however, you’ll always have expert support at your fingertips.
2. Greater Efficiency
Your internal IT staff probably wears many hats. Some days they’re taking support tickets, while others they’re trying to manage new software or product rollouts. Unfortunately, this creates a situation where nothing gets their full attention and in turn slows everything down.
When you outsource your IT help desk services, you get a team that’s fully dedicated to providing support. It also frees up the rest of your internal team to focus on strategic initiatives without the distraction of providing user support.
3. Support for Hybrid and Remote Workers
These days, companies are more flexible than ever before, offering employees the option of hybrid or fully remote work. While these options are great for your people, they also come with a whole host of unique challenges that require support.
Rather than reduce your employees’ working options, you can outsource your help desk services to ensure everyone gets the help that they need. The results are happier workers and better productivity for your business.
4. Relief for Your IT Experts
One of the best ways to provide them relief is to outsource your help desk services. This allows your internal team to get back to what they’re best at and to stay aligned to your top business priorities. Let your experts be experts, and leave the help desk services to your outsourced support.
Get the Network Reliability Your Business Needs
We take a comprehensive approach to help businesses monitor networks and mitigate threats. We start with proactive monitoring and troubleshooting, which helps us discover potential issues at an early stage so we can minimize their impact. By identifying trends in your network, we can spot patterns that might indicate an upcoming network problem.
Between lost sales and missed customer service queries, downtime can cost you money. We thwart downtime by analyzing data to discover patterns and indicators of potential problems. We also help prevent downtime by scheduling routine patches and system updates at convenient times, so you can update your systems without losing out on business.
Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy when you outsource network monitoring to FastRope.
Downtime can have a significant impact on your business. Not only does downtime cause you to lose out on potential sales, but you also must spend valuable time trying to get your network back online and fixing any problems that result from downtime. Outsourcing network security monitoring services means you always have somebody keeping an eye on your network and working to prevent downtime. FastRope can help you keep your network and systems up to date without updating during crucial business hours.
Blocking Security Breaches
Security is essential when you run a business, especially if you’re dealing with sensitive data from customers. Protection from security breaches is one of the biggest benefits of outsourcing remote network management and monitoring. With FastRope you get a team of experts keeping constant watch over your network, so you don’t have to worry about breaches going undetected. If there’s a network breach, our experts will respond to it as soon as possible to lock down your network and prevent further issues.
Preventing security breaches is essential for several reasons. Security breaches can cost you a lot of money, and the cost of those breaches increases with each passing year. Customer trust is also important, and a security breach can make customers think twice about trusting you with personal information or a credit card number. With constant monitoring as well as forecasts that help predict problems, outsourcing to a top network monitoring company is a smart choice.
Improving IT Team Productivity
24×7 network monitoring is a top reason to consider outsourcing remote network monitoring. The role of remote monitoring in network management can’t be understated, and it’s tough to put together an in-house IT team that can provide continuous monitoring. You need your IT team to focus on other tasks, and that’s easy when you have 24×7 network monitoring from FastRope. Outsourcing network monitoring and management services means you have experts always keeping an eye on your network, which is crucial because downtime and security breaches can happen at any time. As soon as there’s a perceived threat or network issue, FastRope can begin taking steps to mitigate that issue and prevent downtime.
Every time your network goes down, it costs you money. Downtime prevents you from making sales, responding to customer service inquiries, and handling all of the day-to-day operations that keep your business afloat. When you outsource your IT monitoring to FastRope, we work to prevent downtime by analyzing data to discover patterns and identify issues before they occur. With 24×7 network monitoring, you also get the benefit of fast response times in the event of a security breach or a network issue. Preventing outages saves you money and keeps your customers satisfied, which are two of the most important things to focus on when you’re running a business.
Most users have never received any formal training on how to use Microsoft Office software applications or the Windows operating system that powers desktop and laptops.
Training is divided into three different categories:
- Quick Bites are short videos typically 2-5 minutes in length that fully explain specific features. For example: How to set up Microsoft 365 Notifications.
- Skill Ups are longer, more detailed video series that typically take 20-40 minutes to complete. You can think of a Skill Up as a combination of different Quick Bites that will fully educate you on a larger topic. For example: Microsoft 365 Groups and Team Sites.
- Belts are the longest and most detailed offering. Belts are great for learning everything there is to know about a specific Microsoft 365 application or feature. Belts are incredibly helpful for educating users on all aspects of a new application that you may have just rolled out at your company. Belts are typically comprised of different Skill Ups and Quick Bites. For example, our Microsoft Teams: Essentials Belt will educate viewers on everything they need to know about Teams.
As users complete training videos, their profile is updated to reflect their recent achievements and updates are sent to administrators within your business so they can see which users are watching which videos.
We will train your team on the full suite of Microsoft software including but not limited to Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, Windows, Office for Mac’s and Dynamics CRM.
Our experience is that employees crave learning how to use these new technologies, and once you have given your company the tools and training, they can drive the innovation and improvements you are looking for. Also, your company will stand out amongst your peers as most companies do not provide any official training to their team.
