We deleted our Blog, over the years we added post upon post in an effort to get content on our website for potential clients to find and in the end we found we had a mess of blog posts that wasn’t easy to read or inviting in the slightest.
So we made the decision to start a fresh, only adding posts we genuinely believe to be of use to customers and prospects. We want to create a sensible space for information about IT, IT Services and how your business can benefit from investment in your office IT.
We know you’re probably not enthralled by the IT in your office, it’s probably a necessary evil, you’re probably more interested in the phone you pull from your pocket as most of us are, but there is a importance on not just what our IT says about us but also how it makes our lives easier and deliveres us the success we require.
There’s no getting away from it, the IT in your organisation is paramount to your success in business, and you should over look it at your peril.
“You are heavily dependent on IT and without it you’d really struggle to run your business.”
The above might seem at first glance to be a bit of an overstatement, after all “you and your people are the business”, now I don’t dispute that but do me a favor please turn off all the devices in your business and then go about your day with them remaining off. You can switch them back on tomorrow and resume activities as per usual.
Great thanks, now OK on this occasion we voluntarily switched everything off and switched back on as needed (I’m going to assume you humored me) but what if we involuntarily lost the IT systems in our businesses?
What redundancy’s do you have? This morning a new prospect contacted us and mentioned the reason for their call was their IT support open after them and when the 23 staff got in first thing the server was down, it was 2 hours before they could report it and a further 5 hours before they could work, 7 hours of downtime for this company cost them £4,000 in lost revenue and £3,450 in staff wages.
Opps! That’s just 7 hours, imagine if there was prolonged downtime, sometimes downtime is inevitable a telecoms engineer unplugs the wrong port at the exchange or a burst pipe wipes out the comms room (I wouldn’t put pipes in the Comms room) but response is key, we pride ourselves on our communication and response to client requests. Have a free 30 minute chat to see how we can support your continued business success.
The largest Taxi Company in the World don’t own any vehicles and the largest Hotelier in the World doesn’t own any Hotels.
If that fact doesn’t prick your ears up then I sincerely don’t think anything will.
IT is disrupting pretty much every industry and it’s only going to get worse, you might be forgiven for thinking you better get an App for your company quick but in all honesty that’s most likely a waste of money for two reasons.
- You shouldn’t ever do anything that requires significant investment “quick”
- A business App won’t work for most people
The true trend here is about convenience, if you can provide what you do through an app then great, but your company and it’s products are probably about nuance and that is pretty hard to convey via an App. The real importance here is to align yourself with an IT Support company that works with you to deliver results and understands your needs (We both know who that is).
If you should like to speak to us about the IT in your business please book now.
You’ve probably heard us mention that we’re a new type of IT company. We say this because a few years ago a client said to us.
“People just want a IT company to support their business that, answers the phone when you call, responds in a positive and timely manner and works as hard as they do in their business to fix issues”
We decided that we needed to embrace this in our corporate values and build the services we offer around the thoughts and views of our customers, see it’s not really about IT, well it is but it’s also about communication, respect, speed of response and relationship building. And we are the best at it.
Don’t get us wrong we drop the ball sometimes but so does “Manuel Neuer” (Football Reference) but we pick it up again and crack on.
That is why we are a new type of IT company
