For those of us outside the IT department walls, it’s easy to imagine our hardworking IT co-workers as those who come to the rescue when your computer crashes or your phones stop working. However, poke your head inside the office of your IT department and your perception will quickly change as you come to realize just how much more this department handles.

Your IT department is filled with some of the most important employees at your company. They are responsible for not only implementing technology initiatives drive daily efficiencies, but they are also tasked with identifying cost savings opportunities through equipment selection. It goes without saying that without your IT department, your enterprise wouldn’t run as smoothly as it does, nor would it be as successful as it is.

However, IT practitioners are just like you and I at the end of the day—and don’t possess fail proof super powers. Sometimes they even need a little outside help. Hiring a trusted third-party IT vendor is a great way to scale up your department when initiatives require more resources, however, selecting a superior vendor isn’t as easy as picking up a gallon of milk on your way home from work.

There are a number of important factors to consider when outsourcing work to a third-party. You’ll want to take into account the types of outsourcing services that are available, cost comparisons and contract essentials among a number of other elements.

So where do you get started?

To help, AAJ Technologies has invited our VP of Mobility and Enterprise Solutions Alex Barenboim to speak during our upcoming June 9 webinar. The 1:30 p.m. EST presentation titled “10 Things to Consider When Hiring an IT Vendor” will give you the resources you need to confidently choose who to outsource to.
