How much does IT support cost for a small business?
IT support can quickly add up to a major expense for small businesses. Investing in IT infrastructure, security, and hiring a knowledgeable team of IT employees can be costly to a small business’s initial overhead.
The salary for an IT specialist ranges from $58,000 - $66,000 per year in addition to other expenses a business may accrue such as hiring, job training, healthcare coverage, life insurance, etc. In many companies, software and hardware specialists differ resulting in building additional departments and hiring more employees – adding to the overhead costs. Outsourced IT companies often have monthly plans and service-based options available based on common small business needs.
On average, third-party IT services offer a wide range of support services for a fraction of the cost ranging from $1,000 - $2,500 a month depending on the exact services. Pay-per-service options are also commonly available and may help to reduce costs.
