For many businesses, the term ‘IT support’ traditionally conjures up images of helplines, password resets, and hardware fixes. These are important aspects to it, but in a world that is increasingly digital and integrated, the scope of IT Support solutions is expanding like never before, offering new opportunities and depths of value.
There are providers that are helping businesses to achieve profitable growth, by helping them to adopt new technologies, streamline and automate processes, and integrate technologies together. IT support can no longer be about responding to tech hitches and optimising IT environments on a day-to-day basis, but also, should be strategic, forward-looking, and commercially savvy.
In this piece, we outline how businesses can achieve more profitable growth by working with this new generation of IT Support provider.
Redefining the Meaning of IT Support
The digital age has broadened the horizons of IT support. No longer is it just about troubleshooting; it’s about paving the way for businesses to exploit the digital frontier. Here’s how IT support providers are adding value to businesses of all sizes:
Strategic Technology Partners: A strategic partner will be a proactive collaborator, a trusted thought partner, and bring a commercial and outcome-focused mindset to help your business. They work closely with clients to harmonise their current and potentially useful technology with their strategic goals. To do this, they need to truly understand your business, and deliver tailored solutions.
Empowering Digital Transformation: The buzzword ‘Digital Transformation’ is often bandied about, but with the right IT support, it moves from being a concept to a tangible reality. Whether it’s migrating to the cloud, integrating AI solutions, or simply streamlining and upgrading digital infrastructure, more IT support providers are able to empower digital transformation today.
Systematic Solutions: Through automating workflows and integrating datasets, applications and workflows together, businesses can become more efficient, scalable, and deliver more value to their customers, unlocking profitable growth. With the right IT support provider, your business can transform how it operates, and embrace the digital future.
How IT Support Providers Can Help Businesses to Achieve Profitable Growth
For each business, paving a path to profitable growth will be a unique process that involves different specific technologies, but there are some general solutions that the new generation of IT support providers can offer to empower profitable growth. Here are a few:
Business Process Automation
Time is money, and automation is the linchpin of efficiency. By automating repetitive tasks, businesses can reallocate their resources to more strategic initiatives that sharpen their competitive edge. Data entry, processing information, and routine tasks are all low-hanging fruit for businesses. The benefits are vast, tasks can be completed more quickly and accurately, costs can be reduced, and there is more scalability.
Enhanced Cyber Security
Although many businesses do not see cyber security as an essential priority, for sustaining profitable growth, it’s crucial. With poor cyber security, data breaches and attacks on a business’s IT environment can inflict long-standing and potentially fatal financial, reputational and legal damage. IT support providers can provide a robust digital shield with robust cybersecurity measures that give peace of mind and a sustained focus on what your business does best.
Cloud Solutions for Scalability
The cloud is not just a digital space for file storage, it’s a highly scalable, cost-effective and high-performance solution for hosting and delivering your services to your market. Cloud hosting and remote working solutions can enable your business to lower costs, increase the flexibility of its operations, and deliver services efficiency and at scale, without needing to make large upfront investments. Cloud solutions are also like an elastic band, they can expand and contract with your needs in real time with a flexible ‘pay for what you use’ model.
With the right IT support provider, your business can select and implement a cloud model that is a best fit with your needs and goals, as well as enhance your network services’ performance, scalability and security.
