Some companies think that investing in an IT solutions company just isn’t worth the hassle. It’s an extra expense that you may never need, after all. When things go wrong with your IT equipment, you might be able to fix it yourself. Or maybe you know a guy who would be cheaper.
If this is your line of thinking, you’re probably unaware of how much an IT support company could help you with. Businesses these days rely completely on technology, so how would you cope with a server failure or a power outage? Here are a few areas which IT experts such as Pink Chalk could help you with:
- IT and data security
- Server installations
- Email systems
- Data storage
An IT support team is a complete package, and they have years of experience in technology failings and how to fix them. This means any failures are fixed as soon as possible, so you can get back to running your business.
IT Support = Insurance
Back to the investment reasoning. SMEs have to think carefully about their budgets and where they can afford to spend. Investing in IT solutions could be deemed unnecessary, as it is an ongoing cost. However, you probably pay for various insurance premiums which you also may never need – but you know you need it, just in case. Think of IT support as a form of insurance; it insures you against any technology failures, which can happen at any time. An IT solutions company can also help you when you need to move office, expand or set up a new software system.
Still not convinced? Think about what would happen to your business if you didn’t have any form of IT support, and all of the computers crashed all at once. How would you staff do their jobs? How would you be able to take payments? How would customers know there was a problem? Finally ask yourself – how much would this cost the business?
The answer is probably not as much as a professional IT support team in London! It gives peace of mind to know you have a team of specialists on hand 24/7, in case you ever need them. Plus, here at Pink Chalk we have various payment options which means you don’t always have to sign a contract or pay upfront fees before you need our help.
So, take a look at your in-house IT resources and ask yourself – is IT support worth the small investment?
