Are you a small business owner in Philadelphia or southern New Jersey? How would you like to cut IT costs by 40% and increase security at the same time? If you think cybersecurity is something only large corporations have to deal with, think again. Since 2018, small businesses have seen a 424% increase in security breaches. If you're one of the 8 in 10 small businesses that don't have a contingency plan for security threats, you may be interested in learning about managed IT service providers (MSP). For the best in Philadelphia IT services, go with the pros at PICS ITech.
Read on to discover how PICS ITech can help your business.
1. Saves You Time
Did you know, on average, it takes a small business between one and four months to fill a new position? That wastes time and resources.
In the time it would take your HR staff to create a help-wanted advertisement, you could already be on your way to hiring an experienced team of professionals to keep your business free from cyber threats.
With PICS ITech cloud service, your company saves time on:
- Researching new investments in infrastructure
- Researching licensing software
- Training your team
Our dedicated team of experts will take care of your technology, software, and applications making managing and updating your IT more straightforward than ever. That leaves you time to focus on what matters—growing your business.
2. Saves You Money
You could put an advertisement on all of the hiring platforms. Then interview a lot of amazing talent. After months of searching, you could find your white whale.
You could feel proud of finding the perfect candidate for the office. Maybe they check all the boxes.
Maybe they have tons of experience. Perhaps they come at a lower cost than their worth for other reasons.
However, there's still a problem. Let's call Mr. Wonderful, Greg. Greg is an IT rockstar. He's got a pleasing personality. He's a team player, but he has a problem.
Greg comes cheap, but not MSP cheap. Not only that, but Greg has also only committed to work during office hours. Even with all his experience, he still doesn't know it all!
There are some other problems with Greg:
- As an employee, he earns just under $100,000 a year, cheap for all his experience
- Not only that, but he also has a family and has taken a family plan on your medical, costing your business another $20,000 a year
- As an employee, Greg receives sick days, paid holidays, and vacation time each year
On the cheap end, you could say that Greg costs your small business $120,000 a year. BUT he brings SO much to the table, you say! True.
Now let's take a look at the other side of the coin.
With an MSP service like PICS ITech, you could outsource your IT to a team of experts that have all the experience you could need. This team can manage your IT issues 24 hours a day.
Here are some other benefits with outsourcing your Philadelphia IT services to PICS ITech:
- You don't have to pay a salary, just a flat monthly fee
- You don't have to pay for medical coverage
- You don't have to provide sick days, paid holidays, or vacation time
Why? Because they aren't employees. Greg is great, but is he $120,000 a year great?
The average cost for an MSP service can run $125 - $150 per user, per month, and let's say you have six users in the office. At the top end, you would pay around $1,000 a month.
For a team of people who work 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, don't collect benefits and secure your networks better than Greg, you'll pay 12,000 a year!
That's 10% of the money you were ready to pay, Greg! That's a savings of $108,000 per year!
If you're looking for Philadelphia IT services, you can save a ton with PICS ITech and have a premium service with greater protection.
