Have you ever thought of hiring an in-house IT technician? Maybe you have worked with a 3rd party individual to support your network for years but now you feel like you aren’t getting the customer support you need. Your company is growing fast and you feel like you have outgrown your IT partners ability to support your team. You sometimes go for days and even weeks at a time waiting for a return call or email just to get a simple problem resolved. This is a common growing pain that many of our clients have experienced in the past.
It may seem like having a dedicated in-house IT technician is the best way to go. Maybe you have another position such as marketing to fill and you hope that you can hire a marketing professional that also knows enough about technology to help you bridge that gap. While hiring additional dedicated staff would most likely do the trick, they are usually left twiddling their thumbs because there isn’t enough work to keep one person busy. On the other hand, you can hire a marketing professional who has IT smarts, but they most likely do not have enough time to do both jobs well. Going down this road, you will also find that you are limited to the knowledge base of one individual and that is reflected in the quality of the solutions available to you.
