The average annual salary of an in-house IT Manager can be anywhere between £30,000 to £40,000 per annum. Added to this are costs for recruitment, additional company benefits and on-going training to keep their skills up to date. It can also be really difficult to find the right people!
For most smaller businesses, an in-house IT specialist is a luxury that they simply cannot afford. However, they are still left with a large potential cost to their business in periods of downtime resulting in loss of productivity and staff spending their valuable time trying to solve problems that are out of their remit!
You may base your current IT strategy on a ‘break/fix’ scenario which we see as very reactive as opposed to proactive. This means that by the time you know there is a problem, your business and staff’s productivity has already been affected and you typically experience prolonged periods downtime which cost your business.
