We are a small business ourselves and one thing I hear from potential customers, or friends and family is:
Can we afford good IT? Isn’t it expensive to hire an IT person?
The reality is that it’s not as cost prohibitive as you would think. Especially, when the work being done is enhancing the performance of your network, extending the lifespan of your PC’s, server and any other office equipment. The main costs accrued come from the initial purchase of all hardware/software necessary to run a successful business of any size. Once you’ve purchased those devices either through Sierra Computer Group, or from an outside source, then you’ll want to make sure it is all configured correctly. Depending on your company’s line of business applications, and who governs your business then protections are put in place to assure you are meeting any overseeing agency’s requirements, i.e. HIPAA, SEC, PCI compliance.
Now here’s the part that is going to save you money: maintenance! Just like with the expensive company vehicles you purchased need to be maintained with oil changes, brakes, etc. Its a safety issue to as well, you want to keep your employees safe in that vehicle. IT maintenance is equally important! If you have a brief visit once a month to provide updates to pc’s, patches to your server, and any other networked devices, you’ll not only extend the lifespan of the expensive office machines you’ve invested in. You’ll also be protecting your sensitive data and keeping your business reputation as one that cares for its customers intact.
Here at Sierra Computer Group we want all our customers no matter how large or small to be successful and secure. Please give us a call and let us show you just how affordable IT maintenance can be for your company, plus all the other benefits that come from being a proactive business owner!
