Running I.T. Shouldn’t Leave You Running For Cover

When information technology fails, it can fail stupendously. We’ve all heard stories of public and private companies that have experienced a colossal collapse of a billing system or accidental release of massive private information.

These situations are harmful in the short term, and the long term. They cost the company in dollars, erode confidence, and make lives miserable for everyone involved.

The fact that these occurrences take place is the result of a truth easily overlooked. I.T. has the power to undermine or undo the success of your business at virtually every turn.

No wonder—I.T. is everywhere. It’s your ERP system, your data storage, your security system, and your CRM. It’s the engine that runs your entire business machine, and if it’s not working smoothly and efficiently – or when you don’t have the right people in place – it can sink you.

YOU NEED THE RIGHT PEOPLE WHO SPEAK THE I.T. LANGUAGE

Expertise is the most critical factor when it comes to managing I.T.today. And while English has emerged as the universal language of business, the number of “languages” required to successfully operate a multitude of platforms is unwieldy at best. Businesses are tempted to simplify, in part because hiring “partial people” isn’t an option.

There’s a solution: switching to a Managed I.T. Services model gives you all the expertise you need, in the languages that matter today, at significantly lower cost than managing in-house. According to a recent study from CompTIA (Computing Technology Industry Association), I.T. managed services will reduce risk, and increase productivity and security, while providing you with an average savings of 25%.

Opting to work with a managed services provider allows you to focus on your business, while leaving any or all of the technical details to the skilled and highly-trained individuals at BDO, a company known for providing trustworthy service to Canadians for decades.

MAINTAIN EXCELLENCE WITH MANAGED I.T. SERVICES

We all like to think that our I.T. services will run at optimum capacity from the date of purchase. As time marches on, things change. While your teenager might be tempted to avoid car maintenance, and first-time homeowners might argue they can forgo factoring in the cost of home repairs, business owners regard their I.T. structure the same—at their peril. Your level of usage, your data consumption, your storage needs – all these things combined will change the nature of your system and even move it prematurely to beyond its “best before” date.

LET BDO TAKE CARE OF YOUR I.T. SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO

It’s the commitment to maintenance that secures the investment – and getting the right provider to take care of your I.T. services ensures that work is done to your specifications, the first time, at far less cost down the road.

With BDO’s Managed I.T. Services your organization achieves the return on its I.T. investment through regular maintenance which means your employees are more knowledgeable and willing to use the system. In other words – you ensure you get the efficiencies you paid for. This extends the lifespan of your investment, and keeps users on target.

  • Licensing
  • Hardware
  • Products & Applications

LET BDO MANAGE YOUR I.T. CONNECTIONS – SO YOU CAN MAKE BUSINESS ONES

OUR MANAGED I.T. SERVICES EXPERT CAN HELP

Mid-sized companies today can spend as much as $400,000 a year on in-house IT. They’re paying extra hours in labour to make up for lack of skills, paying for training, or shuffling critical I.T.tasks to those willing to tackle the issue on the side of their desk. The result: wasted resources, lost hours, less time spent on your core business.

One bad day can create headlines you never want to see. Let BDO act as an extension to your team taking care of your I.T. business, and energize your business the right way.

Make the switch. Get in touch with BDO today.
