Can you imagine how much easier it would be to manage your IT problems if you had a dedicated support team who you could always count on to receive calls and answer any questions your team has? This would technically qualify as an internal help desk, and they could potentially save you a ton of money and time in the long run. Why? Because your team wouldn’t have to waste time digging through complicated systems to find answers to their dilemmas.
All companies have different needs for support, so it’s tricky at best to place a particular cost for help desk support. However, the value that it offers for your organization is unquestionable. For instance, consider the amount of cash your business could save if your team didn’t have to struggle against spam all of the time. Every year, approximately $712 is lost per employee due to having to sort out spam email; a problem that they shouldn’t have to deal with in the first place.
Waste due to technology problems can quickly become an overwhelming crutch that is completely unnecessary. Think of how much time you could save if your team didn’t need to deal with any of the following problems:
Calling hardware/software vendors to resolve an issue
Diagnosing computer problems
Manually installing updates and patches and handling the general upkeep of their computer
Simply suffering with computer issues without having ANY action taken.
Adding up all of these figures is sure to display a pretty serious number that your business simply can’t afford to deal with if it can help it. As it turns out, there’s an IT solution available that’s designed to help your organization deal with this exact problem. It’s called implementing a single point of contact for all of your technology troubles, but it’s often easier said than done. The skills required and the additional costs on the payroll might be enough to dissuade you from onboarding a full-time help desk employee.
