If you own a small business, you’re probably used to doing everything yourself. You have to wear many hats including designer, project manager, coffee maker, accountant, sales person and boss. Adding IT support to that list is fine if you are one but could cost you dear if you’re not.
Contracting an external company to manage your IT is a cost but it could save you a lot of money in the long run. Here’s how:
Experts on call
How much time do you typically lose when your computer or network goes down? How much does that downtime cost you? Chances are that it costs more than it should and impacts the rest of your day. This can have a knock on effect on productivity, reputation, delivery and so much more.
Having experts on call that know your systems, know your network and can diagnose and fix any issues much faster than you likely can is why outsourcing is still so popular.
Security and compliance
Every business has responsibility for securing data. Whether that’s financial, medial, product or service or just emails and contact details. Breaches of data regulations can work out very expensive both in terms of fines and reputational damage.
If you don’t know how to fully protect your network or configure defense in depth then perhaps you need to work with someone who does. The cost of a breach can be painful in every meaning of the word!
Prevention is better than cure
Small business IT support is about handling issues as they arise as well as preventing them happening in the first place. A competent IT support company will schedule preventative maintenance, backups and a program of steady, affordable replacement for your hardware and software.
Prevention is better than cure in every walk of life but none more so than running a business.
How much more could you earn if your systems worked better or your network faster? This is possible when your systems are optimized and managed effectively. A secure system is an efficient system and alongside a preventative maintenance schedule can ensure your IT is always ready and willing when you need it.
From optimizing your broadband to patching your desktops, there is a lot we can do to help you increase productivity and maintain integrity.
