Why Outsource IT for Financial Services?

There are many benefits to outsourcing IT services for firms in the financial industry, including:

  • Highly skilled professionals: GDC’s team actively engages in ongoing learning opportunities to bring our clients the best expertise in the industry. You always have access to our knowledge base and experience.
  • Regulatory compliance specialists: Our well-trained representatives understand the highly regulated environment of financial services and keep you compliant with the laws. We’ll ensure your processes and practices — like business continuity plans — meet standards for FINRA and more.
  • Robust data security protocols: We employ sophisticated technology tools to safeguard sensitive financial data and prevent unauthorized disclosure or security breaches. Our services help you stay compliant with Sarbanes-Oxley and Gramm-Leach-Bliley requirements for data protection.

Benefits of Outsourcing Your Help Desk

Financial services firms have unique help desk needs because both in-house staff and clients may require assistance. The numerous platforms involved in completing everyday tasks add to your challenges as well. 

GDC’s 100% U.S.-owned and -based Technical Service Desk is your answer. Our flagship offering sets the standard for high-quality IT support for financial services. We provide three separate tiers of care with many benefits, including:

  • A single point of contact: Get full-service support for all incoming IT requests. Our representatives handle each end-user call, from back-office staff to clients.
  • Extended-hours coverage: Allow us to provide supplemental coverage when your IT staff is off-duty. GDC offers around-the-clock support to give your clients the assistance they need during evenings, weekends, and holidays.
  • Overflow support: Keep up with periods of high support demand following infrastructure or website changes. Our team of skilled agents takes the extra calls coming in when your IT professionals are serving other customers.
  • Scalability: Add support when you need it without delay. GDC’s flexible help desk options mean you can grow your business and provide end-user assistance without a time-consuming recruiting, hiring, and training process.
  • Service level agreements: Define what successful help desk performance means to you. We partner with our customers to create the service level agreement that works best and identify the most meaningful tracking metrics.
  • Improved productivity: Leverage in-house IT staff for more revenue- or growth-oriented projects. Our agents quickly resolve level-one calls like password resets and program navigation questions from our U.S.-based call centers.

Benefits of Managed IT for Financial Services

Managed IT services help financial firms of all sizes better use, control, and take advantage of their technology. In addition to scalability and access to expertise, financial services companies benefit from:

  • Predictable fees: When your revenue depends on commissions or performance, a set monthly fee helps you budget for expenses.
  • Reliability: GDC partners with industry-leading providers to bring you solutions synonymous with dependability and quality.
  • Lower labor costs: Using an experienced provider like GDC eliminates the need to hire additional in-house staff.
  • Meeting client expectations: Managed IT services provide you with the latest technology, allowing you to meet client demands for convenient ways to track and manage their money.
  • Integration: Our team uses your existing IT assets to build a seamless solution for your practice or firm.
  • Proactive system monitoring: GDC experts watch over your network and its infrastructure to spot and resolve issues before they result in downtime and lost productivity.
  • Operational efficiency: Our team uses the right mix of tools and applications to manage your critical programs and infrastructure, allowing you and your team to focus on serving client needs with the best possible technology.
