If the main profile of your company is very far from technology, if it is impractical to keep your computer specialist, then you can conclude a service contract with a specialized company. However, if you have a local area network, but there is no corresponding specialist, it is advisable to conclude such an agreement regardless of the principles of building this network. By the way, most often this is cheaper than the content of your specialist.
