What is IT-outsourcing and why do you need it?

Everyone knows that the narrower specialization is, the more the company is competent in it, and professionalism is not in doubt.


Every business consists of a much larger number of processes than it may seem to an outside observer. Even if you have a firm with a staff of several employees, in addition to the main goals of the business, you will have to support a number of non-basic but mandatory processes.

Henry Ford was one of the first who realized that no one company can be self-sufficient. The head of the automotive company wanted to personally monitor all stages of production, but soon he was faced with exorbitant costs spent on the service of all activities of the company. He asked for help from independent companies that took on some of the tasks. 

Now the Ford Motor Company independently produces only 30 % of components, other production was transferred to outsourcing.

Outsourcing means the transfer of non-business-critical functions or parts of the company's business processes to a third-party contractor, that specializes in the provision of such services. As a rule, outsourcing belongs to the category of strategic decisions.

It is necessary to distinguish between the concepts of one-time support and outsourcing. Unlike services and support that have one-time or episodic character, you conclude a contract with outsourcing company for a certain period of time.

What is IT outsourcing?

Over the past few years, IT outsourcing has firmly established in the economic life of society and relationships in business. The use of third-party services to solve problems in a wide range of information technologies can be called a trend of our time.

IT outsourcing involves the transfer of information systems to service a third-party company. In most cases, it is programming, website creation, software, development and maintenance, maintenance of equipment etc. 

In the 21st century, the efficiency of every company depends on its IT infrastructure. Without the professional support of computer equipment and software used, there are inevitable problems in the work. They can cause simple corruption and even data loss.

Under 70% of IT-structure expenses are spent for maintaining operations.

Benefits of IT outsourcing:

  • Cost reduction
    You do not have to contain an additional structure and expand the staff. Transaction costs can also be reduced. Some fixed costs can be transformed into variables depending on the needs of the firm over a specific period of time. You only pay for the work performed, rather than monthly, as is in the case of staff.
  • High level of professionalism
    Our employees are regular participants of seminars, conferences and courses, where they face the latest developments in the IT sphere. They constantly improve their knowledge and improve their skills.
  • The possibility of focusing on core activities

  • Round-the-clock support
    You no longer depend on the fact that someone is not in the workplace. We carry out work qualitatively and quickly.
  • Guarantees
    We have clear financial obligations, which are fixed in the contract for the provision of outsourcing services and meet its reputation.

Turning to our company, you will not only significantly reduce the company's monthly expenses. Now you can be sure of the efficiency of the carried-out works, their quality and reliability!

P.S. Most likely you have asked yourself: "So many advantages, then why the practice of hiring outsourcers has not been widely used yet?”

There are several reasons for this:

  • the main reason is fear - fear of loss of control, fear of trusting a stranger to trade secrets or just fear of change;
  • in second place - the lack of general knowledge about the principles of outsourcing business development processes. 

 Ð¡onquering your fears, you make the step forward to success!
