4 Ways Business IT Support Can Save You Money and Power Your Growth

No matter what type of business you have, technology is going to be major playing in keeping it running smoothly. From computers to software to cloud systems, how well your tech runs can have a profound impact on your bottom line.

When computers aren’t running as efficiently as they can, that means your office isn’t either. If you experience a major data loss incident due to server crash or security compromise, you could end up never fully recovering (many small businesses don’t!).

Cloud technology solutions decrease workloads by at least 42% for small businesses.

Some business owners think they’re saving money by trying to do their IT themselves, but it’s actually costing them in a number of ways when they don’t have a pro handling their managed IT needs.

These include:

  • Costly downtime
  • Expensive emergency repairs
  • Computers running inefficiently
  • Missed IT opportunities that could improve productivity
  • A technology infrastructure that doesn’t last as long as it should

No matter what size business you have, business IT support can help you grow faster, reduce costs, and gain a competitive edge over your competition.

Why You Need Business IT Services

Offices used to consist of typewriters, faxes, and paper-filled filing cabinets, now they have digital files needing network protection and an army of computers that require regular monitoring and updating.

One misstep when it comes to your tech can mean devastating consequences, such as a data security breach or total file loss in the case of a ransomware attack.

Here’s how Unbound Digital helps companies in the Tri-Cities area get the most out of their technology while also saving money.

Protection from Breaches and Malware Infections

If your server or website is hacked, it’s usually all hands on deck at an office until they get the problem solved. One staff member might be searching online for answers while another is calling any IT professional they can find that can give immediate assistance.

What this means is that your office is basically “closed for business” while everyone is putting out the fire.

Having a Managed IT Services plan can keep you protected from breaches and infections by keeping a watchful eye on your network as well as employing several safeguards. We offer:

  • Enterprise-level managed antivirus and anti-malware
  • Web protection and filtering of suspicious sites
  • Exchange Server Antispam that protects your users from phishing attacks
  • Firewall maintenance and testing
  • Mobile device management to ensure mobile security
  • Application of security patches and updates

Reduces Downtime

Downtime can cost a business more than $10,000 per hour. Unmonitored equipment can go down without warning leaving your office unconnected and unable to operate as usual.

With managed IT services, you greatly reduce your downtime and the associated costs. You’re provided peace of mind knowing that your network is being monitored 24/7 for any signs of a problem.

Your equipment is also being checked regularly so you’ll know well ahead of time if a part needs to be replaced before it fails. We get a report every hour from each computer and server about the state of its health.

Unbound Digital’s guaranteed response time also ensures any issues are dealt with quickly so you can get back to work at full speed.

Ensures Your Files are Secure

Many companies suffer from data loss due to either not backing up all their files or not regularly checking a backup for any problems. The average backup failure rate for backing up all data is an astonishing 75%. Much of the reason is that backups go unmanaged, so when they’re finally needed, issues like software conflicts and storage shortages are found.

What a managed backup does is ensure your backup system is being monitored regularly to guarantee all files are being backed up properly and there are no problems that can cause data loss.

Improves Office Productivity

Sluggish computer syndrome can sneak up on you over the years. At first, everything’s running smoothly with your new computers, then as they age, they can get slow and kill your staff’s productivity.

We do regular check-ups of PCs to remove unnecessary files, run system scans, and update registries for speed and performance when needed. This helps your technology keep up with the speed of your team so they fly instead of faulter.
