As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization I am always looking for the best value when it comes to equipment and service. Often it is a struggle to find that one company that can give you both at a level our organization can afford. I am proud to say that for the past 4 years we have been very pleased with Yuma Office Equipment. They worked within our budget, pairing us with the best copying and fax equipment, along with a comprehensive maintenance agreement. Offering same day assistance if something goes wrong, and knowing that their technicians are right here in town has added to my belief that they offer the best value. We appreciate everything that Craig Crossland and his staff do for Hospice of Yuma and recommend Yuma Office Equipment to any business looking to add new copying and faxing equipment.

Avoid Pain Points by Outsourcing Your IT

Posted Aug 1, 2017

As organizations become increasingly more reliant on technology for their day-to-day business operations, IT is a critical area for businesses both large and small. Managing your IT infrastructure is a complex, demanding, and fluid endeavor. It is a task that most companies simply aren’t capable of adequately tackling themselves due to lack of time and resources. Today's IT-driven work environment presents your team with a number of pain points that will inevitably arise.

By outsourcing IT services to a Managed Services vendor, you can alleviate a number of pain points associated with an in-house approach to IT including:

Expectations to do more with less – As technology advances exponentially and IT responsibilities grow, team size and company resources remain stagnant. As IT expectations increase and pressure builds, it is nearly impossible to keep up with demand in-house. However, an outsourced IT vendor can stay ahead of your IT needs at a standardized rate.

No room for amateurs – An IT environment is an extremely complicated arena, one that requires skilled, knowledgeable, and well-trained professionals. You need more than someone who knows how to set up their own computer to keep your network and systems up and running. An outsourced partner invests in the continued education of their team of pros so you don't have to.

Remote workers make security more challenging – As technology makes it possible for employees to work and collaborate smoothly from anywhere, people working outside of the office is now the norm. These remote workstations, along with more mobile devices accessing your files, make your IT infrastructure vulnerable to attacks. An outsourced IT vendor secures your environment, allowing for this new flexible style of work while protecting your data.

Turnover and new users are a huge headache – Employee turnover seems to be at an all time high, as the era of ‘employment for life’ is behind us. This influx of new users puts an increased burden on IT staff to quickly and accurately set up new accounts, while ensuring former employees can no longer access company files. An outsourced IT vendor makes your office's transitions easy and secure.

Working with a Managed IT Services provider will help you avoid the pain points that pop up in today's IT environments. Contact us to learn more about how our YOE Connext services can help your business today.
