As a small business, having in-house IT personnel can be costly. With consistent changes in technology, it may beneficial to consider outsourcing this function. Although when most people think of outsourcing, they envision job loss. This isn’t always the case. Many small businesses already outsource a number of functions, which includes using contractors or freelancers. There are three main benefits of outsourcing: expertise, cost and efficiency.
Technology companies have dominated the industry for the last ten years, offering solutions that cater to specific customers. This was previously seen as a benefit, as companies could purchase niche software that worked as a viable business solution. As software solutions evolve, they are not as conducive to specializations like they once were. This is due to designers having broad-based experience, and not enough industry specific background to create solutions that will work best within niche companies. Many people wonder whether or not specialized software exists anymore, and is it better than using off-the-shelf software that says it is designed to work with your industry needs.
75% of employers rate both teamwork and collaboration is "very important" qualities that directly contribute to the ongoing success of an organization. Likewise, 86% of people say that a lack of genuine collaboration was one of the key contributing factors to nearly all workplace failures. Because of statistics like these, many businesses are regularly searching for online tools designed to increase collaboration between departments, groups or even entire companies. These tools are also the perfect way to assist with tasks like project management, as they allow companies to break down data silos and freely share information in a way that allows everyone involved to work harder, faster and better than ever before.
