Outsourced IT Support & Management

We know how critical IT is to keeping your business running smoothly

Why Use Outsourced IT Support.

Many people decide to have their own IT team and this is for very good reasons. You get immediate response, dedicated knowledge and flexibility. However you may also get the disadvantages of salary cost, holiday cover, training and retention.

Training

Professional staff, including IT experts all need constant training to hone their skills. If you don’t invest in training your network will become out dated and not allow your business to grow. This is a costly mistake.
If you don’t provide training then retention can become a problem.
Yet how do you cope with the cost and also the time when staff are attending training courses?

Immediate response or Firefighting?

Although not all IT departments are guilty, fast response often means that problems are being covered up with a sticking plaster approach. Regular problems indicate that there is something underlying. If they are fixed quickly it probably means it’s a regular problem. So immediate response isn’t always the best thing. It can indicate the lack of strategy.

Dedicated Knowledge or tight to the chest?

Documentation and procedures are the things that make a business strong. Unfortunately IT staff are not always good at documenting and sharing information. They often remember passwords by setting everyone to the same. This increases risk of infection and data loss.

So internal IT teams can be very strong but only if there is constant investment just like any other key item in a company. The very benefits can be disadvantages unless they are carefully managed. As an alternative consider partnering with a 3rd party company who will build a relationship with you. This will mean carefully choosing an IT company who has existed long enough to build up a good reputation and a knowledge bank. They will also be sized so that they are large enough to give reasonable response times yet not no large that you are a small fish to them.

Make sure that they have a training ethos for their staff and that they are happy to work alongside your own IT team if required. This way you can have the best of both worlds by making a composite IT team with holidays and training covered by the 3rd party yet having the speed of an internal team.

What Our Customers Say

  • Andisa have just completed a design and build project to give us a new network capable of expanding to man racks so that we can expand our streaming monitoring business.

    All I can say about the router they sent us is: it was the smoothest transition I've ever had!

    I have been involved in many upgrades over the years but this build and swap out was faultless. Andisa visited for twice. Once to audit / research and once to install the new kit. They agreed the outcomes at the start of the project, reviewed each day and ultimately delivered exactly what they promised. And as I said, it was the smoothest transition I have ever had!

  • Hi, I just wanted to say a big thankyou to the Andisa team.
    From the moment we told you we were moving office Andisa just helped. Every question got right to the issue and it all meant that the move itself was smooth.

    Once we were moved, Paolo and Tim went round every desk and checked with our team to make sure they were fully operational. Phones, PC's Wifi, Laptops and printers were all 100%. Even the photocopier and franking machine was back on line.

    We cant thank you guys enough.

    Pippa Fisher
  • I asked Andisa for a new Mac because mine was too slow. When they checked the spec they advised that the only difference compared to a new machine was an SSD hard disk thingy.
    Instead of spending £2500 I spent £650 and the machine is like new.
    I wish more companies were as honest.

    Claire Wearmouth
  • Andisa recently supplied a new laptop. The life changing thing was their advice to use the TV as a screen. Now when Zooming my family I can see everyone and they are large!
    I wish I had heard this advice before - what understanding team. Their advice sorted my frustrations so easily! Andisa really understand what we need!

    Pat Kerr
  • We have dealt with Andisa for over 10 years, initially asking them to provide IT Support to our clients, they have since installed and provide full management of our IT infrastructure including a 1G/b Wi-Fi network throughout the building and install and management of the VoIP telephone system.
    Their service is always friendly and professional and the work is carried out to a very high standard.
