Is Outsourcing For You? Considerations On The Benefits Of Outsourcing For Small Businesses

Share Article

Emil Isanov, CEO of Etech7 Inc, announces free advice on the misconceptions behind the concept of IT outsourcing.

In the business world, large or small, “outsourcing” is a scary word, carrying with it connotations of foreign country based support, lost local jobs, and an overall detriment to the American economy. But such is not the case with all outsourcing, especially not the kind Etech7 provides.

“The problem we typically encounter when we explain what it is that we do, is that the moment we say ‘outsourcing’, all of the employees get this kind of scared look on their faces,” Emil Isanov, CEO of Etech 7, states. “They think we mean cutting all their existing IT Support positions and they conjure up these crazy ideas of our replacing them with employees located offshore in places like India and China. That’s not what we stand for, and that’s not what we do.”

The key to proper outsourcing of IT support, Mr. Isanov states, lies not in replacement of existing employees as much as it does in supplementing those employees with additional ones.

“One of the main advantages to the way Etech 7 is set up as a company is that all of our employees are located directly in the New York City area, which means even though we technically exist as outsourced IT support, we’re still very much a local business, and rather than have to conduct all of our relations over phone and e-mail, we have the unique advantage of being able to meet with our clients face to face.”

Yet keeping outsourcing local is only one half of the equation to successful IT support.

“Etech 7 is not a tool to eradicate existing jobs,” says Mr. Isanov. “In the case of small business IT outsourcing, yes, Etech 7 can function for you in lieu of a full technical support team. But that said, we also possess the capacity to work as a buffer and to assist your existing team, in scenarios where a company may only be able to afford, say, one technical service employee versus a dedicated team. Bottom line: outsourcing for us is not about making local jobs foreign. It’s about flexibility, productivity, and keeping jobs local, and it can apply to tasks as small as basic troubleshooting and as large as online backup services, and as any business owner knows, backup is essential to any business.”
