Worldwide IT spending is predicted to reach almost $3.5 trillion for 2017, but that doesn't mean you have to spend that much on an out-of-house IT team. Instead of spending unnecessary money on IT services here and there, you should consider investing in a supplemental IT service contract. Here's why:
When you have a service contract and something goes wrong, your IT team will be there and ready to handle it. Instead of having to scour the Internet for an IT company who can service you within the next day or so, you'll have a team of professionals on-hand who can immediately address any IT issues you might be having. In addition, your IT team will already have all of the knowledge they need to complete repairs. Rather than spending hours searching for serial numbers and data, all of those things will already be logged.
An IT service contract is an investment, but the long-term cost is far lower than if you simply called a non-contracted business IT support agency every time you ran into an issue. A service contract allows you to forecast the amount of money you'll spend on business IT consulting services annually, which in turn helps your business stick to a cost-effective IT support model.
Trusted Service Provider
When you have technical issues, you should be able to turn to a reliable business IT support organization for everything. Under a service contract, you're able to do exactly that. Whether you need network computer support for computer network security or one of your printers is down, being able to trust a single provider with all of your IT needs is ideal.
A big part of the battle with tech is preventing issues before they happen. If you invest in a service contract, you'll be able to ensure preventative maintenance for all of the technology you use in your business. This service is crucial to extending the life of your technology.
Whether you're working with a lot of tech or you're running with the basics, the benefits of an IT service contract are plain to see. What are you waiting for? It's time to start saving your business time and money. (read more)
