Prior IT Planning Prevents Poor Performance
Businesses that utilize a break/fix solution for their IT often do so in an attempt to save money. Often times, the perception is that by only paying for things when they are broken, you’re saving money, as long as things are “working.” What if we told you this way of thinking actually costs more money?
When you first get your business going with just a few employees and computers, managing your own IT doesn’t seem like an unreasonable thing to do. However, as your business evolves and your staff grows, you will need the technology to support more confidential documents throughout your organization. With the proper IT services, these documents will remain protected and backed up at all times.
For businesses with a DIY or poorly planned IT network, you will quickly find that your setup becomes a huge, problematic mess. Other networks that are more established may take a slightly longer period of time before becoming problematic, but in the end,it will cost big bucks to repair.
Regardless of how well your initial IT setup is, it WILL begin to suffer from poor performance, becoming less reliable and efficient without the necessary DAILY maintenance. Eventually and often without warning, part of the network will fail due to a lack of maintenance. This can cause business disruption, large unexpected expense, loss of your companies’ data, or worse…theft of your companies’ data. Not to mention the big expense it will cost to fix these problems.
To better understand the importance of Network Maintenance, here in an analogy that may help:
Let’s say your business is a trucking company with a 10-truck network. Your trucks run 24/7 and each truck drives several 100,000 miles per year. Do you regularly maintain your trucks by changing the engine fluids, filters, brakes, tires, and everything else necessary to keep them running and reliable?
Do you use a “break/fix solution” where you only pay to repair a truck when it breaks down? For example, on the way to a delivery, the truck’s engine bursts into flames due to lack of oil. As a result, you are now forced to buy a new truck for your business, which causes a big unexpected expense.
So, just like truck maintenance every day, IT maintenance is an expense, but with it you are not just gaining service and improving your business, you are saving money with prior planning.
