Manage to reduce computer support? (3,2)


I believe the answer is:

cut it

'manage' is the definition.
(to 'cut it' is to manage or cope in a situation)

'reduce computer support?' is the wordplay.
'reduce' becomes 'cut' (synonyms).
'computer support?' becomes 'IT' (IT support).
'cut'+'it'='CUT IT'

'to' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for cut it that I've seen before include "downsizing computer department?" , "manage" , "Meet standards" , "Succeed" , "met requirements" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
