Managed Help Desk or New Hire: Which is the Right Fit for You?

Employees are seeking greater and greater flexibility, both in terms of where they can work from and the devices they can use to do their jobs. In many cases, supporting these transitions has stretched traditional Help Desk environments to the breaking point.

Consider these points:

  • Spiking interest in mobility: The number of employees who regularly work from home has increased by a staggering 103% since 2005, according to research by GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics
  • Tough-to-fill positions: Indeed found that 88% of open tech positions remain open for at least 60 days before they can be filled 
  • Increasing burnout risk: The average workweek for IT pros clocks in at roughly 52 hours, according to a Spiceworks study

Whether staffers are working longer hours because a project demands it, or because the team is short-staffed, either way, the potential for mistakes and burnout is dangerously high. Businesses in need of help on the Help Desks needn’t run that risk. One option they have is increasing the size of the existing Help Desk.

Another option? Managed Help Desk from Arraya Solutions.

Our Managed Help Desk service links existing Help Desk teams with our award-winning Managed Services team. Our team expands upon the experience, skillsets, or simply the number of free hands those teams need to better serve end users.

So what’s the best option for your team? New hire or Managed Help Desk? Here’s a closer look at what each of these options means for businesses:
