For small and medium businesses, attempting to fix your own computer issues can do more harm than good. It may seem like having to pay for IT services is an unnecessary expense, especially when you have a somewhat tech savvy employee who seems to know what they are doing. It may be an expense now, but it will save you thousands of dollars in time and money in the long run.
For example, one member of an accounting firm works on an average of 5 accounts in a day. Clients are billed at $300.00/hr. This includes time and materials. At a total of 8 billable hours, this firm generates $2,400.00 per employee. As an accounting firm, they rely heavily on computers. There is accounting software, intra-office communication, e-mails with clients, legal documents and more. If any part of the computer network is down, so is productivity.
Just as your company is focused on being the best in the field, PACE Technical Services is driven to provide the very best practices and bring value to your business through IT. By attempting to fix computer errors without the proper training, there is a risk that a simple issue may escalate to a pricey, time-consuming one. Small and medium businesses cannot afford to lose a day or more’s worth of business, especially on something that could have been repaired quickly.
By having a technician from an IT provider like PACE Technical Services available to contact in the event of a computer-related problem, all focus can remain on your business, where it belongs.
