COULD YOUR CORPORATE PAYMENTS TEAM BE SITTING ON $10 MILLION IN BASIC SAVINGS?

However, IT departments are challenged with trying to find and keep skilled staff who not only understand the business but also can support the system. At a time when there is pressure to reduce costs, IT executives have to defend headcount, hardware, upgrade and maintenance expenses for all of their business systems. Knowledgeable IT professionals are expensive and hard to find. Increasingly, companies are choosing to outsource their IT system support to a managed service provider. Customers need to see value quickly, reduce upfront costs and minimize their overhead. They are in the business of running their business, not running software. To adapt, technology vendors must shift from a transactional support min
