How can IT outsourcing services help your law firm?
Outsourced IT offers tailored solutions and customised IT support for law firms
What is outsourced IT?
Within the law industry, outsourcing has long been used to improve access to high-quality and consistent services that can’t be cost-effectively recreated inhouse. HR, administration, security and accounting are common examples of essential tasks being passed on to external specialists.
The same logic applies to outsourcing your IT to a provider that specialises in providing IT support for law firms. Outsourced IT lets an external team of experts look after your IT systems so your internal team can focus more on law with fewer interruptions.
Why outsource your IT?
You choose a lawyer based on their speciality knowledge, why wouldn’t you do the same for IT?
IT is a highly specialised and technical service. Outsourcing your IT services to a team of professionals who specialise in the IT needs of law firms over an internal IT hire can benefit your firm by:
By outsourcing your IT, you can get access to an entire team of specialists, often for the same cost of one or two internal roles.
Receive higher quality service
Get access to a breadth of knowledge and expertise through an entire team of specialists, rather than relying on the knowledge of a single IT employee.
Access the best
More IT talent is deciding to stay within IT businesses, rather than work in IT roles in other industries. By outsourcing, you won’t have to compete for the leading IT talent.
Improve your data security
Outsourced providers can implement strict security measures and data back up processes, backed by the best data centres in the country. They also have the people power to monitor IT security on a regular basis, ensuring they are proactive and not reactive.
Outsourced IT can ensure your IT flexes with your needs. Changes in the way you work (e.g. remote working) or changes in your business size or needs won’t affect the effectiveness or usability of your IT.
Receive consistent service delivery
Services delivered by a single internal IT employee is limited by their workload and availability. An outsourced IT team can provide quick and consistent service, even when there are multiple tasks or issues.
Change focus of your in-house team
Free up employees time to focus on client and billable work by eliminating the need to manage, hire, and maintain IT operations in-house.
Access the latest
You’ll get immediate and easy access to the latest applications, and have easy implementation across your entire firm.
