Why A Long Term IT Strategy Is Less Expensive Than A Cheap And Cheerful Fix
Looking for quick fixes when it comes to your IT strategy or can you see the advantages of a long term approach?
Simply fixing IT problems as they occur in the short term is a false economy and MORE EXPENSIVE in the long term!
A good IT services provider can review your business’s requirements and create a long term IT strategy
A long term IT strategy not only creates a bespoke solution now but is also flexible to meet your needs into the futureThere are also some real alternatives when it comes to paying for long term IT solutions including attractive lease options.
Consider this, if your marketing strategy pays off and your sales increase - will your IT infrastructure manage? What happens if you need to take on more staff, move to bigger premises or need better systems for managing more sales? Simply fixing IT problems as they occur in the short term is a false economy and MORE EXPENSIVE in the long term! For example, if you have a computer that is 3 or 4 years old and not performing as it should would you be better advised to spend £100 to mend it and get perhaps another 6 months or a year out of it or to invest in a new machine that will last another 3 or 4 years?
Of course it is more complex than that and a good IT services provider can review your business’s requirements and create a long term IT strategy that not only creates a tailored solution now but is also flexible to meet your needs into the future – however your business develops.
While an investment may be required now that costs more than the ‘quick fix’ option, in the long term the savings that can be made from a proactive approach rather than a reactive one are considerable and that doesn’t even include the disruption to business costs that IT problems can cause.
There are also some real alternatives when it comes to paying for long term IT solutions including attractive lease options. These can help spread the cost of IT without a big capital investment. For a fixed monthly fee, you can take advantage of a continuous replacement programme over 5 years meaning that you always have the best IT solution for your needs at a cost that you can budget for without any nasty surprises.
