What you don’t know could be costing you BIG time!
At BBTech we get it—we know what it’s like to build a company from ground up. And when your main focus is growing and operating your business, it’s easy to let the “out-of-sight” operations like IT services fall under the radar. Unfortunately, this is the one department that is costing most people the heaviest, both directly and indirectly. Here are the four most common costly mistakes we see.
1: The “IT guy” who’s not really a certified IT technician
Ah…the jack of all trades… He may be great for building your new deck—but not keeping your network operating smoothly. Technology changes day-to-day and most of these guys don’t really have the time or motivation to stay on top of the latest IT trends, and that can be a recipe for disaster.
2: Using a part-time person (that’s working a full-time job somewhere else)
There’s just no way that a part-time person is monitoring and documenting your network as it should be, and most likely, they won’t be readily accessible or available when a crisis does occur. In this scenario, the part-time “tech” usually views the client as additional revenue stream, not a long-term partner, which ends up costing you more than you bargained for.
3: On premise, full-time system administrator
Technology has changed so much recently there is just no need to keep a full-time IT person on staff. Nowadays it is much more economical and efficient to outsource IT vs. keeping it in-house.
4: Outsourcing to the wrong company
O.k., yes, we did just suggest you outsource your IT services, but not to just anyone. While there are plenty of reputable companies, there are just as many shady ones out there as well. If you don’t feel like your provider is consistently reliable, honest and cost effective, then it’s time to find someone you can trust.
Most business owners fear losing all their data to a security breach, disaster, theft etc., as well as the cost of downtime if their computer system fails. At BBTech Solutions we use a forward thinking approach, and that’s why as part of our S.W.A.R.M. Managed Services plan, we perform routine, proactive maintenance procedures to seek out potential problems and resolve them before they become an expensive crisis to your business. With several plans available, we can find the right fit for you, based on the size and complexity of your network.
