Currently, there is a boom in virtual IT services. As the cloud gains popularity and apps become commonplace, more and more companies are opening up shop all over the US. While that gives consumers increased access to IT strategies and companies, a few issues have arisen. Newbies and inexperienced companies infiltrate the market and overwhelm companies with products and services, but they cannot provide confidence or a track record. Preferred Technology is different because it has been around longer and has plans to stay.
Statistics about Outsourcing IT
The term ‘outsourcing’ comes with a sense of resentment. Why wouldn’t it? In 2014, US News and World Report reported that outsourcing to China “cost Americans 3.2 million jobs between 2001 and 2013.” Prior to 2014, the value of outsourcing deals was $145.5 billion. In 2014, the value shrank to $120.4 billion. The good news is that IT is coming back to the US. CIO reports an upswing in “insourcing,” with 20 to 30% of services going “in-house.” Preferred Technology has been here the entire time and offers more benefits and services than the competition.
How is Preferred Technology Different?
Preferred Technology can say with confidence that it IS different from the others, and here is why:
- We have staying power
As more IT companies pop up, more go belly-up. Not Preferred Technology. The company has no plans to move operations overseas. We have years of experience under our belts and have been in business far longer than the competition. Preferred Technology has been in business for 21 years and has deep roots in our community.
- We are not a one-trick pony
As more companies open their doors, they focus on one aspect of IT. This can become costly as your company tries to piece together services to provide what it thinks is the best protection. You may have a cloud provider, an IT consultant, a security partner, and your own IT company to handle failure and glitches. This is not how Preferred Technology approaches your company’s IT needs. Preferred delivers comprehensive attention and services to provide your company with the upmost efficiency, service, protection, and support. From the initial consultation to the long-term monitoring and software management needs, we do it all. Preferred Technology knows your company inside and out, just as an in-house IT department does, but without the costs and office space.
- We work with all your devices
We look at more than your computers; we look at your company’s entire IT real-estate. This includes mobile devices, wireless connectivity, security solutions, mobile devices, laptops, phones, and printers. We help establish and maintain a cohesive IT environment that provides the best service and protection.
- We actually hang out with our clients
Yes, we actually think of you as people as well. Outsourced IT gets a bad rap for impersonal communications, so we want you to meet us and get to know the experts who have your back. Throughout the year we host events for our employees and clients. How many virtual IT companies can say that?
- You decide how to use us
We give you the space and option to use our services as you see fit for your budget, operations, and long-term goals. You can implement our services over time, choose to utilize our services in conjunction with your current IT staff, or jump all in and outsource your IT completely.
The initial phone call to Preferred Technology will prove just how different we are and give you a reason to make the shift to our services. We have your success in mind.
