When setting up a small business, it’s essential that you are aware of what departments you need. You will 100% need a finance/admin team, marketing and sales team and depending what industry you’re in the guys who are doing the upfront work. For example, as an IT Support company our priority and main team is the helpdesk who look after all our customers IT needs and issues.
Large organisations will have a larger budget than what smaller businesses would, so they have the money to recruit large teams and have many different departments. You must go with your business budget rather than thinking about the things that would be good to have for the business.
Today’s blog will give you and understanding as to why outsourcing is a fantastic and cost effective idea in a small-medium business.
In business time is money. Do you really have the budget, capability and time recruiting a team that you don’t really need? Outsourcing a department can be cost effective for a business because of a number of reasons.
Firstly, you don’t have to spend money on advertising jobs and paying recruitment agencies to help you recruit a team.
Secondly, it’s a few less staff members to pay for as opposed to outsourcing. It can be more expensive.
And finally, your budget can be put in to other teams and resources that will mostly benefit the business.
Another team in the business means more time that is needed to make sure everything is running as smoothly as possible. There are many industries out there that can assist you without the need for you to spend so much time stressing over.
For instance, we as a computer support business takes the stress out of employees, managers, directors and business owners by providing full
support cover. Customers will log calls with us to make sure that their IT problems are fixed and if any new equipment is needed then we can make the best recommendations for them based on their business and networking structure.
The same thing will apply in other sectors such as marketing, IT, software etc.
Rather than focusing on the elements of the business that you could easily outsource, you can focus on the growth of your business. As a business owner of course you need to make sure everything is running as it seems, but you don’t want to lose yourself and have too much pressure put on you.
When outsourcing, the pressure is less because when you outsource your business and receive services from a company who specialize in a particular area they can be left to it. It’s like having your own in house team but in a different building.
We have been supporting SMEs across the North West for almost 16 years, growing more and more each year. It’s been beneficial as our customers don’t feel the pressure internally with regards to their IT and know they can always rely to solve their issues as soon as we can.
