Why Does Your Business Need A Computer Support Company?

If you have ever watched  television sitcom, you would have learned that most people, men or women, make such a tangle out of plumbing, carpentry or electrical work the tradesman actually have to charge them more to fix what the homeowner tried to do in the first place. It’s no different in the tech industry.

I had a client ask me the other day, what is the most challenging thing about running an IT Support company. There are many challenges, and they are different depending upon which day you ask me, but the overall most difficult challenge is when clients try to do things themselves.

We offer computers and VoIp systems for sale, but we have clients who run out to the nearest big box store and grab the first computer they see off the shelf. It may not be powerful enough to run their proprietary software. It doesn’t come with Office, or an antivirus software which is compatable with their network. There are no printer drivers, the network and internet are not configured for their system. I can almost guarantee if they had called us in the first place we could have saved all of us a big bundle of aggravation and stress, not to mention that we probably could also have save them money.

Another is this. Configuring an entire network is not as easy as plugging in a couple of wires, clicking a few software choices and you’re off the to races. Configuring and efficient, high speed network is something we do day in and day out. We don’t have to guess where to plug what, and which software options to choose. Most of that is almost muscle memory for us by now. What could take someone without our training days to puzzle out, could literally take us hours. And it will be done properly.

One of the most important reasons to hire UTS is this. It could earn you money. You heard me right. If you  or your staff are working on installing a new computer system, you are not working on building, marketing or selling your products or services. When you aren’t selling, you aren’t bringing in revenue. It’s as simple as that.

It’s Important To Have a Tech Plan For Your Buisness

on September 18, 2018 No comments

Do you have a tech plan for your business?  At Unified Technology Solutions we are happy,make that eager, to assist growing companies, or startup companies or companies of any shape and size, to create a workable, scalable technology plan. If you have ever read our blog or taken a look at our Facebook page, you already know that we advocate for working with IT professionals to configure your network, phone system, servers before you spend thousands of dollars on systems that may not be right for your computing needs.

We also help companies with Cloud Migration, anti virus software, security and mail servers. I think you probably get the idea by now, but some of you may still be skeptical. To help convince you, I would like to share an article I came across:

David Rabin, guest writer for entrepreneur.com

“1. Make a plan and map your milestones.

Startups and SMBs celebrate the drama of the business plan but can turn a blind eye to its corollary, the technology plan. Every good business plan needs a tech plan, too.

The best way to plan office technology is around business milestones. What infrastructure will you need when you reach 10 employees, or 100? Ten million in revenues, or $100 million? Technology use tracks closely with headcount and revenue generation. Both of these indices are a starting point to help project your future tech needs….

2. Recognize the strategic value.

Startups and small businesses generally focus on investors, customers and cash flow, and can often treat office tech as an afterthought, or simply an expense.

That won’t cut it in today’s hiring environment. More than half of millennials say office technology is important in deciding where they’ll work, according to a recent PwC study. In their personal lives, they’re used to investing their own money on really good tech — the latest phone, tablet or TV — so understandably they expect the same from their employers.

Office tech is a key strategic investment. It goes beyond functionality, as important as that is, and increasingly reflects the caliber of your brand, the appeal of your workplace, and whether your business is truly future-facing.

3. Benchmark against your physical space.

Real estate is usually a company’s greatest expense. The kind of space you have and how your people interact with it is the biggest factor in how you’ll be using technology both this week and next year.  Real estate is also more fluid today than ever, constantly transforming, with more variants than ever – everything from open floor plans, to telecommuting, to hoteling, which eliminates assigned seating and lets everyone just perch where they want.

Making a precise, in-depth inventory of your real estate needs is key. Does your floor plan have offices with doors? Is it mostly unassigned workstations? How many of your people telecommute? Whatever your footprint, you’ll need the right technology tools to deliver what your people actually use. Balancing real estate with IT is a tough trick, but the time spent cracking this part of the code will pay major dividends down the road.

4. Set some rules and follow them.

These days, most everyone is a technology expert, at least in terms of what they know and like. Every company has one person or more who can’t live without their personal laptop and expect the company’s network to configure around it. There’s a fine line, however, between flexibility and dysfunction.

Big companies have IT standards for a reason – it’s unmanageable without them. Small companies that delay implementing standards run the risk of becoming franken-techs. The monitors bought on eBay, the laptop on sale at Best Buy, may make sense at the time but can add up to compromised performance. When it’s time to scale, you’ll likely have to rip out the gear that once seemed such a good value and start over…”
