Hoboken, NJ and New York City, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
How many staff hours would a business reclaim by outsourcing computer network management and IT support? A new article from eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support and computer consultant in the Hoboken, NJ and NYC areas, spells out the savings of outside IT support. The article is entitled: “How to Get More Hours in Your Day: Managed IT Services.”
“Many companies are surprised by the amount of money that can be saved by outsourcing IT support,” notes Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “A simple survey can help quantify costs and assist management in making an informed decision while significantly reducing management involvement.”

Cutting IT Equipment, Labor Costs and Management Time
Though a business may prefer an in-house IT department, the costs for doing so can be shocking. For example, the capital expense for a management system could easily be $50,000 to $250,000 just for the software and servers that provide continual monitoring, updates and backups.
In addition, the annual labor costs for IT expertise is of no small concern. For example, the starting salary, taxes and benefits for ONE network administrator are at least $75,000, not including the expenses to recruit, hire and move along with regularly funded new skills and certifications. The total could easily exceed $300,000 the first year.
“One option to an in-house IT department is just using any outside IT source to fix things as they break,” said Mazzanti. “However, this break-fix approach leaves most businesses frustrated as its very hard for the external IT expert to really know and understand the business. They also may simply not be available when needed as they have other priorities and on-going clients.”
“Also, with a break-fix approach to IT, management will find themselves constantly drawn into putting out IT fires,” continues Mazzanti. “A well-thought-out external IT solution will nearly eliminate management involvement in IT emergencies.”
One of the best IT support models Mazzanti Technologies has seen is to engage an IT expert on a fixed-cost basis, monitoring a businesses’ network 24x7 while solving problems before they become major network issues.
