3 Ways to Reduce Your IT Costs

Are you looking for ways to reduce your IT costs?

Here are three proven strategies to make your company more efficient, profitable, and innovative:

IT Resourcing

In today’s market, it’s hard to find qualified professionals with the skills you need the most. The reality is that several companies struggle to find and hire IT professionals because of the fierce industry competition. Even when they finally find someone that is the right fit for the position, they have to spend a lot of time and money on training.

That’s why outsourcing can help companies scale and reduce costs. Instead of creating multiple internal teams to tackle different tasks, your company can transfer part of the responsibility to an IT solutions provider like MicroAge . By doing so, organizations can eliminate costs, fine-tune their IT department, and focus on their core business.   

Managed Print Services

In times when people are more worried about sustainability, it’s always a great idea to reduce your company’s paper use.  When your employees start using emails and digitized documents more often, you can say farewell to your printer.

Think about how much your company spends on printing. You can help the environment and lower your costs by using managed print services to print only the essentials. If you have a help desk team, chances are they’ll thank you for this—on average, 20% of all help desk service requests are related to printers.  

Cloud Solutions

If your company is trying to streamline operations and reduce costs, moving to a cloud infrastructure can be a great option. According to a study conducted by IDG Communications, 73% of the 550 surveyed organizations have at least one application running on a cloud infrastructure.
