There’s no avoiding it. Managing your IT can sometimes be a pain.
Few businesses can manage without some IT, even if it’s just dealing with the accounts, email, and a simple website. But, at the same time, it usually requires skills that are not part of your core business, and that means you need to find them elsewhere.
Making sure your systems are running effectively and efficiently will require specialist support. And then, if you need to make changes, such as migrating your systems or expanding your business, it’s likely you need even more support. The problem is most businesses cannot justify the costs of the IT team they really need.
Supplementary IT — the solution to your problems
As the name suggests, supplementary IT adds to your existing IT support. Giving you exactly the level of IT that you need, just when you need it.
It means that rather than having to hire a full IT team, you can buy precisely what you need, exactly when you need it. You can use supplementary IT flexibly, so whether it’s help with seasonal peaks in demand, planned projects that need a little extra resources, or someone who can help address an unexpected problem, supplementary IT is the perfect way to make sure your IT provision continues to support your business, rather than giving you a headache.
Why supplementary IT works so well
Supplementary IT works by plugging the gaps in your existing IT support when you need it, and only when you need it. IT is a diverse field, and while you might already have someone who manages your day-to-day running, they might not have the capacity to handle increased demand, or the knowledge and experience to manage specific projects.
Anyone who has used a computer will know how they absorb time and resources when they aren’t performing well. Using supplementary IT means that you have specialists available to take care of that, it means that your staff can, instead, focus on your core business. It can increase your productivity and, because you only pay for what you need, keep your costs low.
And, above all, it can give you peace of mind knowing that your IT needs can always be met and that your systems are working to support your business.

Supplementary IT for security

Most people aren’t IT specialists, that is why you need an IT team. From getting people started, to trouble-shooting issues, modern work means everyone has some contact with IT.
