Outsourcing Your IT Department

Updated: May 27, 2022

There are many factors to consider when running a small to medium sized business, including how to handle the ever changing IT needs of the company. If you have an IT department, is it able to keep up with changes and demands? Do you feel that you are getting a good enough return for your IT investment? Do you find the IT department personnel difficult to manage? Are you worried about updating or transferring legacy systems to newer applications or cloud services? All of these questions and more can be addressed by outsourcing your IT department to SquareCubed, where the professional resources and expertise can be allocated directly to the specific needs of your business.

Employing even one full-time individual can be expensive, and it’s difficult to be sure that they have the knowledge and expertise which will enable business growth whilst also keeping pace with technological change? Some companies have discovered service gaps on the return to normality following the pandemic and haven’t the available resource to fill them. If you are located in South and West Yorkshire or Lancashire, the simple solution to solving these problems is to outsource your IT department to SquareCubed.

Which parts of your IT can be outsourced?

SquareCubed delivers managed IT services to a wide range of businesses. Our mission is to ensure your IT systems are available and effective all of the time. We are not just here for support when something goes wrong. We get to know your business so we can provide the service you need to function now and to grow in the future. We cover all the main functions of an IT department:

  • Helpdesk

  • Hardware (new equipment advice, purchase and installation)

  • Licensing

  • Domains

  • Email

  • Infrastructure – servers

  • Software and applications

  • Cloud computing

So, how can SquareCubed help your business? Call us today to discuss your IT support requirements, and we will explain the benefits to your business of working with our experienced team of specialists.

Business processes

If you already have a subscription to Office 365, you are paying for more than just Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Office 365 comes with many features that most businesses don’t realise exist or have no idea how to use! SquareCubed can help you to understand how to harness the power of Office 365 to streamline and automate your business processes for maximum efficiency.

Communications systems

Do you have employees working from home? Have you changed your employment practices to allow hybrid working? When your team is not sitting in the same office together, they need a simple and effective way of talking to one another. We can advise on how to utilise Microsoft Teams to improve communications. We can also show you how to take advantage of the Office 365 Phone System to merge your telephone system.

Disaster recovery

Many companies lose valuable downtime through system breakdowns or security breaches. But effective planning can secure your data and reduce downtime significantly. At SquareCubed, we provide advice to our SME clients about back-ups and disaster recovery. We help to develop systems that will allow your company to operate from anywhere, reducing your dependence on one physical location.

Secure cloud solutions

Free your business to grow, adapt and evolve securely. We can show you the opportunities Azure from Microsoft can offer your business in flexibility, security, and mobility.

Managed IT support

It is important that businesses can keep working. With decades of combined support experience in both corporate and SME environments, you can rely on SquareCubed to fix your IT problems. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call our IT Helpdesk service!

IT project management

From Office 365 provision to full cloud migration, if you are physically moving your business into new premises, or if you need to revisit your whole IT provision, we can help design, plan, and deliver your IT project. SquareCubed has delivered IT projects for many corporate and SMEs, so you can rely on our expert knowledge and IT project management skills.

Whether providing an IT Helpdesk service or secure cloud solutions to the provision of hardware and IT project management, outsourcing your IT department to SquareCubed means you can concentrate on growing your business in the way you want. We work with many businesses in South and West Yorkshire and Lancashire, so call us today to find out how we can help you.

The benefits of outsourcing your IT department

There are many advantages to outsourcing your IT department either wholly or partly, meaning you can concentrate your resources on where they are needed most.

Specialist skills

Businesses may not have the knowledge, experience, or expertise in-house. Or there may not be a sufficient breadth of knowledge to tackle every IT issue that crops up. At SquareCubed, we are the experts in our field, so have the skills and experience to handle even the most complicated and, what may seem daunting, IT issues.

Cloud migration

Although migrating to the cloud will make your business more efficient and secure, the process may not be easy or straight forward. We can show you how cloud computing can benefit your business and implement any necessary changes, so you have minimal downtime, if any!

Control/Reduce costs

It is not easy for small or medium-sized businesses to recruit and train IT staff, and it can be very expensive. When you outsource your IT department to us, you set up a contract and pay a monthly fee. You know from the start which IT functions are covered and with SquareCubed you know you have an IT team who is always up-to-date with the latest developments and one which is available to you when you need them.

Up-to-date technology

At SquareCubed, we provide our clients with advice for planning a long-term ICT strategy. IT changes continually, and at a rapid pace, so we are constantly evaluating emerging technologies to see which ones will benefit our customers – so you don’t have to think about it! We will show you how to streamline your processes to make your company more efficient and productive, meaning you can free-up resources to concentrate on growing your business.

For your peace of mind, we don’t wait for a contract renewal before suggesting new products and services that would benefit your business.

We bring everything that is good about perfectly planned, perfectly delivered, and perfectly controlled systems into the SME market, for the benefit of our clients. We know from first-hand experience what IT best practices can do for businesses like yours. If your SME is located in South or West Yorkshire, or Lancashire, don’t let your business IT support drive you to distraction, call us today to find out how you can reap the rewards of outsourcing your IT department to SquareCubed.
