When systems crash or networks go down, business owners are left counting the cost. In fact, UK business misses out on an estimated £2 billion of revenue each year because of IT downtime.
No manager wants to see:
• Employees twiddling their thumbs, unable to work
• Important data lost
• Customers frustrated – and going off to competitors
• Communications with suppliers disrupted
Many companies will now be starting to gear up for the Christmas period – imagine the chaos of repeated network outages or system failures during one of the busiest times of the year. How many customers will give you a second chance after being let down once?
And don’t forget that there are security implications as well. When secure systems go down, resourceful employees often turn to everyday file-sharing solutions such as Dropbox to get the job done. These are fine for backing up holiday photos, but not for commercially sensitive information.
When systems go wrong, you need it fixed fast. When you’re losing money and customer goodwill by the hour, you can’t afford to have your IT support provider dragging its feet. This is why it makes sense to have a dedicated IT firm in place to respond quickly and efficiently to IT problems.
