Your IT Guy Quit - Now What?

What Is The Fastest Way To Find A Fantastic New IT Support Replacement?

You need to replace your in-house IT resource with a new hire, but there’s a lot of pressure with this decision. You’re undoubtedly asking a lot of questions, like:

  • What skills and qualifications should you focus your search on?
  • Have your needs changed?
  • Will one person be able to handle your current requirements?

There are so many factors to consider. Where do you start?

You need to find someone that you can trust with your daily IT operations, someone who you can count on to immediately address any issues that pop up, and someone who is able to be proactive and outline a strategic IT plan to support business growth.

Before all this pressure becomes overwhelming, consider if the traditional route is the best plan for you. Traditional IT methods of a time-and-materials tech (or team) that mainly focuses on response to problems aren’t sufficient for many businesses anymore.

Was the IT guy that resigned able to manage your business’s entire IT infrastructure throughout the evolution of your company and still look to the future for planning?

Now is the time to learn from your past, and fast forward to your future. You need an IT support resource that can continuously maintain and support your IT infrastructure while planning with you toward organizational objectives. One internal IT employee resource may no longer be the answer. More companies are turning to managed IT services providers to outsource IT oversight in a more cost-effective and efficient manner.

How Are Managed Services The Better Choice?

You need experienced IT help that can handle the extreme variety of technology issues facing your industry today, and you need resources that can respond in a timely manner – within your budget. Expecting all of this in one person is both unrealistic and expensive, and you can’t afford to make concessions.

How do you decide which part would you leave out if costs prevented you from getting the total package?

  • Security
  • Training
  • Forecasting
  • Management
  • Consulting
  • Maintenance

Ignoring any one of these aspects could spell disaster. A holistic, proactive approach is key to the secure, stable function of business technology.
