Every business will need to reach out to vendors and establish partnerships that will improve your productivity. Many times, outsourcing various areas of a business will make the most sense in terms of cost and efficiency. Hiring experts, even if it seems like more money upfront, will be much more beneficial to your business than doing it on your own. IT plays a huge part in the success of your business and is also the one area that most businesses lack expertise. Managed IT services will put experts in charge of your IT so you can relax and concentrate on your business.
Every business relies on IT
IT failure can be detrimental, especially for a startup or small business. When you are the new business on the block, you can’t make any mistakes. Your IT needs to be working optimally at all times. You rely on IT to communicate with customers, partners, and employees. IT solutions help you store and share data securely, as well as provide you with tools to increase productivity. Because IT plays such a vital role in running a successful business, there can be no room for errors, glitches, breaches, or interruptions. Managed IT services can help you stay one step ahead of problems.
Cost of downtime
When you get a headache, most of us know that we need to take an aspirin, and the headache will be gone in about 20-40 minutes. While you wait for the aspirin to kick in, you are sluggish, distracted, and less focused, which can affect your work and productivity. One headache may not set you back or cost you much in time and money, but if the problems keep persisting, all that time adds up. What would be much more efficient is being proactive to avoid getting a headache in the first place, like reminding yourself to drink more water throughout the day.
Now imagine if your internet, software, hardware, etc. was sluggish or offline for 20-40 minutes a day. That would be catastrophic. When your IT fails, it’s not like one person getting a headache. It’s like everyone getting a headache and having to lay down in a dark room, all at the same time. And, because you’re no IT expert, you won’t know how to correct the problem and get your business up and running again. There’s no magic pill for IT problems.
Downtime is incredibly costly to a business. The highest cost of downtime is the trust that you lose. If glitches compromise security or make it difficult for customers to get in contact with you, they will quickly flee, and regaining their trust is almost impossible. The price of downtime is often too high for a small business or startup to pay.
Proactive IT support
No small business or startup can afford to go dark for any amount of time. Managed IT service is providing proactive IT support to ensure that your network and everything connected to your network never suffers a “headache.” Proactive IT support is an invaluable asset to a small business. You can have peace of mind knowing that you’ve placed your IT in the hands of experts. They work hard to solve IT problems before they arise so that you never suffer any downtime, glitches, or breaches.
