IT Outsourcing, how do we make it friendly?

A few months on the school run I got three miles up the road when my daughter cries out;

“My phone, I’ve forgot my phone, turn around!”

My first thoughts were that she really didn’t need that phone, but she kicked up such a fuss telling me how she couldn’t go about her day without it, so I turned the car around.

I spent too much time later that day thinking how ridiculously my daughter had behaved about her phone.

I told myself that it wasn’t that long ago that none of us used mobile or had internet and how I could go without technology, no problem.

Then it happened…

I few weeks later I did the same thing and it hit me how much I thought I needed that phone and turned the car around again!

The point here is that you will miss it when IT’s gone. I’m not just talking about your mobile, I’m talking about your business applications, email, documents, etc.

I’m still shocked that a high number of small to medium businesses put little or very low priority on their IT systems.

I get the impression from some business owners that technology feels like a necessary evil and a costly pain which needn’t be the case.

IT Outsourcing is important, It’s no mistake that some of our most success clients prioritise technology at a much higher level.

Investing properly into technology has a number of benefits especially when things go wrong, and inevitably they will.

Having a strong focus and understanding of your technology, business critical applications and such, means that we can get you back on track faster and this is made easier if technology is up to date.

Avoiding technology will not make it go away.

Some of the biggest complaints is that IT is boring, unfriendly, geek-ish, complicated, the list goes on.


That doesn’t have to be the case anymore the IT technician is changing.

We find more and more quality people with the right technical skills, soft skills and empathy.

Just like the most successful companies investing in the quality of technology we invest heavily in our people to ensure our clients get the best out of IT Outsourcing.

Outsourced IT, what does that mean?

Outsourced IT

Outsourced IT, what does that mean?

Good Question!

When we talk about outsourcing here at Select Technology we are not referring to offshore outside of UK outsourcing.

We are referring to tailored outsourcing services utilising our very own service desk and our own employees all managed from our service desk here in Tonbridge, Kent.

Whether in part or in full, IT outsourcing requires a flexible and skilled service provider. Whatever your reasons for outsourcing, we provide a tailored service to meet your organisations unique requirements.

Remote IT Support

Some organisations outsource elements that are expensive and ineffective to run in-house, up to an including their entire Helpdesk function. With our extensive experience of common infrastructure technologies we are often better placed to deal with common tasks such as Microsoft infrastructure support. Our remote services can provide all Helpdesk functions, including 24×7 support if required.

Onsite Support

In other scenarios we provide dedicated technical staff onsite, integrated with your existing team. They’ll bring extensive and varied experience to the table, and will stay with you as long as required. And as Select Technology team members, they’re 100% committed to delivering a superior service.

Our outsourcing agreements can also include protection against traditional staff challenges such as unplanned absences, providing an essential continuity of service. We’ll tailor our service to meet your unique needs.

The Perfect Fit

Full or partial outsourced IT expertise for Helpdesk, skills infill and knowledge gaps. companies of 25 – 250+ would benefit from these services. We also have some example clients where Select Technology have 2-3 staff complimenting the in-house IT team, fully integrating in all areas.

This means that our client benefits from specific skill sets, has flexible bespoke services and burst capacity for their in-house team. Also we completely take the pain away from our clients when it comes to the recruitment process which in itself can be very time consuming.
