‘IT’s Only Everything’

Persistent Pain

It’s a story we see over and over. A computer breaks, a virus infects the server, the network goes down. And if that weren’t anxiety-inducing enough, the next thought is inevitably, “Who gets tasked with fixing the issue?” Typically, organizations grab the first available body who’s ever plugged in a computer. It could be a nephew or family friend providing basic break / fix. Maybe it’s an employee who has a bit of background in IT. Perhaps it’s you? And how much is you or your resource’s time worth per hour: $50? $100? $300? $500+? Every time your technology does so much as make an undesired peep, you’re losing money… serious money. Safe to say you or your employee’s time is FAR better spent on their core responsibilities?

Additionally, what is the cascading impact of down technology that prevents teams responsible for thousands of dollars a day in revenue generation from doing their jobs? You could literally lose $40 grand because a software patch failed to install properly and brought down a production line! Wouldn’t you rather your team’s focus be on what they should really be doing— their jobs— as opposed to waiting for something simple that could have been avoided to now be fixed?

And at a deeper, systemic level, who designed the foundation of your software, hardware, network, phones and security to begin with? Further, is anyone watching or is it just plug-n-pray until something breaks? Even if it’s working, do you truly feel it’s load bearing for the kind of growth and momentum you want your organization to experience?

One Solution

You don’t build a power plant and electrical grid to get your electricity. You don’t build a water treatment plant and system of plumbing just so you can get drinking water. If it’s not your core competency, why should you have to attempt to cobble together a highly nuanced system of hardware, software, networking, security, VoIP and monitoring systems? IT is literally its own field of specialization: The time for bringing in a niece, family friend or technology-adjacent employee to fix items when they break is over. There was a time when an office had one disconnected computer and you could do it yourself. That time has passed.

Your business is NOT technology, it’s building products, delivering services and above all, delighting your customers.

A self-healing system to provide a true technological foundation for your organization. Let US do what we delight and excel in, IT, so you can do what YOU love, building your business.

No more thinking about hardware and software at all for that matter, except for fun thoughts like “How will I use this computer to make more money today?” Now when you look at your screen you’ll experience a sense of peaceful control knowing it’s going to work as intended, a former source of anxiety has become an ally.
