Have you been thinking about getting some help with your company’s IT strategy, or maybe engaging the services of a trained technology support partner? If so, this might be the perfect time to take action.
Although a lot of business owners and executives don’t realize it, summer can be the ideal time to onboard an outsourced IT vendor or make the change to working with a new partner. Let’s look at a few of the reasons why you shouldn’t wait…
Many Businesses Are Slower during the Summer
If you are like a lot of the clients we work with, you could be in the middle of a slow season within your business. That’s perfect for getting a new IT partner up-and-running at full speed without having to suffer any disruptions during your busiest times of the year.
Although most of our clients see immediate productivity gains when we start working with them, it’s always better if we can have a couple of weeks to learn about their company before things get too hectic.
Your Hardware Needs to Be Protected
The summer can be a dangerous time for business technology, particularly in Southern California. Not only does the heat bring on storms, but large-scale air conditioning use sometimes leads to blackouts and power surges throughout the state.
That makes the summer a good time to think about the data backup and disaster recovery plans you have in place. If you worry they wouldn’t protect you in the event you suddenly lost access to servers and hard drives, for example, this is a good time to start fixing the problem.
There Are Some Great Deals Out There
Because summer is a slow time for new hardware and software releases, you might be able to get some really great deals if you have upgrades to make in your business. In fact, you could easily save thousands of dollars on things like workstations, devices, and apps.
Of course, a good IT partner will help you to evaluate your business goals and find the products that best meet your needs and ensure you don’t pay more than you should. But, those savings could disappear shortly so you don’t want to wait too long.
You Won’t Be Overwhelmed
Probably the best reason to look at making some changes to your IT strategy during the summer is that it might be the point in the calendar where you have the most freedom in your schedule. In other words, any time you can meet with vendors and take action is good. So, if your chance to do so is while others are taking vacations, then you shouldn’t miss out on your opportunity.
We constantly hear from business people who meant to address their IT problems before it was too late but felt like they were continually too overwhelmed to take the first step. This is your chance to avoid that mistake.
