Outsourcing IT: Trust
Outsourcing IT is more than just hiring a company with technical expertise to manage your technology. It’s about forming a mutually beneficial partnership built on respect and trust. Trust is something that is earned over time through interactions between people and organizations.
If you’ve never worked with a company, how do you know they are trustworthy?

References. Happy customers who are willing to provide a reference indicates that the company is doing a phenomenal job and has done their part to build a solid relationship.
Company Website. A well designed and informative website indicates the company has invested time into projecting a professional image to the world.
Trust your Gut. Chances are you are successful in business because you’ve learned to trust your instincts. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
