Going green is big. Companies that adopt environmentally conscious culture help the Earth, improve their brand reputation, gain tax credits, and attract new green-minded customers. If you’re considering going green, one of the easiest places to start is with your technology.
Obviously, there are many ways to impress the community with your green campaign. For example, you could host a trash cleanup day and give out t-shirts with your company logo. But there are better and more meaningful ways to help the environment by using remote technology (without getting your hands dirty).
Traditional break-fix IT support is not environmentally friendly. Computers break, IT technicians load their gear into a van, drive to the site, fix the issue, and drive back to their office. Gallons of gas get used every time the break-fix techs go on a call.
Alternatively, Quikteks’s IT support service can handle most IT problems remotely. Obviously, remote support won’t be able to handle every fix, but our remote monitoring and maintenance service typically detects and takes care of issues before it gets to that. This ensures that your technology runs efficiently and requires fewer on-site tech calls.
You can also take advantage of that same remote technology by allowing your employees to work from home. The average commute to work in the U.S. is 25 minutes each way. If you crunch the numbers, the miles your staff is driving per week really add up. Why not reduce your company’s carbon footprint through the use of flex days and working from home?
Any time that you’re able to avoid driving, you’re helping the earth. Setting up remote IT solutions from Quikteks would be a perfect way to kick off your company’s green campaign. To learn more about how technology can aid your green campaign, give Quikteks a call at (973) 882-4644.
