We’ve all learned from conducting business that cutting costs is a priority for successful business operation. While there are plenty of products available that promise to save your business money, perhaps the easiest and most effective way is to outsource IT. Gartner Inc. reports that you can eliminate a quarter of your IT expenses by simplifying your IT network.
Without a clearly mapped out IT game plan from the beginning, your company can easily end up with an overly complex IT infrastructure that costs more money to maintain than it should. This disorganized network can take on several different life forms. Does your network infrastructure look something like this?
- Your network connection cables look like a birds nest
- Your company lacks a clearly defined IT plan
- Every network user has their own local printer.
- Your network devices were carelessly installed.
- Your file paths are do not have a clearly defined nomenclature.
If you can identify with any of these points, your business’ IT system is costing you more to operate than it has to. In this case, an estimated 25% of your budgeted IT dollars are being spent on purchasing longer cables, installing more unnecessary connections, and servicing your equipment. Your company is investing unnecessary time and money into purchasing and maintaining IT infrastructure. Now, let’s look at how to save your company some IT dollars.
