If there is one thing most business owners and executives will tell you about technology, it’s that maintaining computers, software, mobile devices, and communications systems is too expensive. Even worse, a lot of these same men and women would tell you they don’t always understand where their inflated IT budgets are going.
Our firm was built on the belief that good technology support should be fast, friendly, and affordable. We think that’s why we are one of the fastest-growing companies in Southern California.
In today’s post, we want to outline four simple ways we are able to cut IT costs for our clients…
#1 Reduced Service Costs
The first way we lower IT bills is by simply charging less. This might seem like an obvious point, but it’s an important one. When you have a well-managed business with established procedures it’s a simple matter to lower your overhead. Plus, the size of our technical staff means we can spread administrative costs over many different projects.
In other words, because we’ve scaled our business the right way, we are able to pass savings on to the people we work with.
#2 Increased Productivity
One of the promises we make to all new clients is that we’ll work harder to keep them working harder. In other words, we approach IT proactively, solving problems before they affect a client’s ability to carry out business. That means they don’t have to deal with unexpected outages or downtimes, allowing them to be more productive and profitable.
The biggest technology cost most businesses face has to do with unplanned disruptions. We do everything we can to take those away.
#3 Predictable Monthly Billing
Sometimes it’s not the amount you spend for technology support over the course of a year that’s hard to deal with, but the fact that the amounts jump up and down from one month to the next. That kind of billing can put a huge strain on a company’s cash flow and bottom line.
By using smart managed services agreements and planning ahead with our clients, we are able to provide them with consistent billing from one quarter to the next.
#4 Disaster Recovery and Aversion
There are few things as devastating to a business as running into unplanned tech emergencies. They can require an enormous hardware replacement cost, emergency IT support, and unplanned downtime all in one. In some cases, a small fire or electrical surge can actually put an entire firm out of business altogether.
This is another area where smart planning makes all the difference in the world. We make sure our clients are ready for the unforeseen, so that if it happens, we can get them back on track quickly.
