Business owners are always counting the pennies and balancing budgets—every cent counts when you’re staying competitive. This kind of careful attention to a budget can sometimes steer professionals away from much-needed services, however. Take, for instance, the return on investment on managed IT services.
Many companies choose to manage their IT infrastructure in-house in an effort to save money. What they’re missing in the equation is that this forces their IT department to run on a break-fix model of network management rather than preventative, opening them up to disaster.
The Return on Investment of Disaster Recovery
Disasters happen—more often than we realize. Whether it’s a catastrophic data loss due to hackers, malware, or a natural disaster, these events can put companies out of business fast. Research shows that around a quarter of all small businesses hit with a major disaster never reopen, and if they do, they’re left with rebuilding their data from scratch.
If a hurricane, tornado, fire, or flood came through your office right now, how much information would be lost that’s stored only on a few computers? How many client files, employee documents, and proprietary information would be lost forever?
The solution is managed IT services, your backup plan for when disaster strikes. The disaster recovery made available through managed IT services can shore up your business from devastating data and profit loss, making your survival sure. Rather than wondering whether you can afford managed IT services, it’s more accurate to ask whether you can afford to operate without it.
If you’re unsure whether managed IT is right for your company, give us a call. We’d be happy to assess your current situation and make recommendations to improve your overall security and backups.
