1- Focus on your core functions.
The time and effort spent on figuring out Information Technology have a very real opportunity cost. Researching solutions, implementing new technology and fixing IT-related problems are extremely inefficient for non-IT professionals.
By using a professional technology services provider, internal staff is free to spend time focusing on revenue generating opportunities and the business of the business.
2- Avoid downtime.
Even a few minutes of systems downtime carry enormous business costs. Maximizing uptime must be a high priority. Small businesses can longer afford issues with internet connectivity, email communications, corrupt data or systems failure – the cost of reacting to these events is just too high. Professional technology services providers offer planned, measured approaches to pro-active systems maintenance, security, backup and disaster recovery. When providers couple this with remote systems monitoring and 24/7 response capabilities they reduce and often totally eliminate costly downtime.
3- Reduce cost.
Predictable IT costs. The business value of technology services providers go well beyond the cost reduction of their efficiencies and result in very hard dollar savings. In almost all cases, small businesses will spend 25% to 50% less than the cost of even one mid-level IT professional.
Additional cost savings are realized since recruiting, training, vacation, sick days, turnover and other management issues are all taken out of the equation. When utilizing a professional technology services provider, costs are budgeted, planned and controlled.
