Small Business vs Information Technology

One of the biggest headaches of any small business owner is having to deal with information technology.  Face it, we rely more on our computers both personally and in our business operations than ever before and there are no signs of this slowing down.  So inherently, all the wonder and benefits of IT also come with the downtime sides of IT and the problems which will eventually occur.

The problem for small businesses is the cost associated with employing an IT staff, so as a result many choose to simply ride their technology till it breaks.  For many businesses, this is a completely acceptable approach to IT, however it will eventually break so an IT consultant should be readily prepared to lend a hand.  By having a reputable computer repair and IT guru in your vendor list, you can minimize the cost of system failures.

Until a company reaches significant size where IT problems and input is needed on a fairly regular basis, an IT consultant will fit the bill at a minimum cost.  When that business crosses the 20 – 30 person head count, IT will begin to strain but even at this level, a well planned IT environment can maintain itself for very long periods of time.  The biggest cause of IT failures in a well engineered environment begins as systems age a couple years.  This moment will present the beginning of intermittent failures and IT troubles where systems will require more regular maintenance to run efficiently and with minimal downtime.

As you can see, small businesses don’t need to fear IT problems, they can get by with a credible IT consultant company for quite a long time before requiring their own in-house IT staff.  Here at Help Me IT Guy, we try and provide just that type of service to every small business when they need it so you can focus on what matters most, your business.
