How Many IT Professionals Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?
One of course!! But before it is installed he or she will consult with you to discuss your needs and determine what you want to achieve from this light bulb. They will also advise on the purchase of the light bulb, making sure it’s the right bulb for the job, and in some cases will purchase it for you because they often have great relationships with light bulb suppliers and can purchase at a lower cost. He or she will also have a whole team of experts to help with the process.
Once installed, this team will monitor your light bulb 24/7 to make sure it is optimised for performance allowing you to work in the perfect light. They will also put steps in place to protect your light bulb from all the light criminals out there and even back up your light so that in the event of a sudden darkness disaster they can provide you with your light, so you aren't working in the dark and your business can continue to function.
Of course, I'm not talking about light bulbs. It’s just a silly analogy but it highlights just how much you can simplify your life and eliminate problems by outsourcing your IT to a quality IT support company. A quality IT support company will offer you sound advice about a whole range of things from system design, procurement, security, licensing, scalability and future proofing. They will also remotely monitor devices and support your staff to minimise downtime and keep your business operating efficiently. They will also monitor from a security perspective and perform regular backups of your critical data, and much more.
But beware when choosing an IT support provider, you can buy problems. Do your research and due diligence and it could turn out to be some of the best money your business ever spends and leads to a smarter enterprise.
