Managed IT services, our definitive guide to less stress and more success.
Is your working week peppered with IT obstacles that get in your way?
Take a moment to reflect, your typical working day can be littered with frequent minutes of this incomprehensible world we’ve just described. All of them preventing you from actually doing what you do best, running your business.
What about the time when Brenda’s PC on reception froze or the printer jammed? Can you recall when Tommy was working from home and he needed to access a file before a client meeting, but he couldn’t remember his password and the system locked him out? Remember when Kirsty forgot to renew the company website domain, or when Adrian failed to sign out of the customer relationship management (CRM) system and left his laptop on the train! Need we go on?
Names have been changed to protect the team and some of the above issues are simple, but the facts remain – technology is complex, not everybody gets it and it can hinder your business if it’s not managed well. And, even if Danny is a proficient gamer at the weekend, it doesn’t mean he’s the ideal person to look after your company IT.
” The biggest difference is the continued innovation and forward thinking, I think that’s really important for any business that wants to use technology to improve performance and efficiency.”
Vanessa Fuller – Premier Tax Limited, Stoke on Trent.
Are you fed up of technology issues wasting valuable time and money?
Technology can help us achieve some truly amazing things. When your IT system just works, business is fantastic. Orders are received and processed without a glitch and communication flows. But when technology gets out of bed on the wrong side, everyone suffers – patience is tested, emotions run high among staff, customers and suppliers, and operations (can) grind to a halt. The entire supply chain takes the hit.
People tend to think that if they leave pressing the update button they won’t break anything or if they ignore the reminder request or process because they’re too busy it’ll be OK until next month. But that also means that essential updates don’t happen, systems get clogged and vulnerabilities appear. It’s exactly like the uncared for garden that becomes overgrown with weeds or a car that never gets serviced. Things can quickly start to slow down, get attacked by foreign bodies and will eventually stop working.
