How to Avoid Frustration with your IT
With technology rapidly changing, small and medium sized business find it difficult and expensive to keep up with the latest technology.
However, keeping PCs and laptops for too long can actually cost more money because of the IT security risks, the need for higher management or repairs and the detrimental effect on staff morale and productivity.
We at Think Technology Australia recommend businesses should plan to replace their computers at least every three to four years.
A computer that saves one employee 10 minutes a day from booting-up, logging in, and through response times of different applications equals about 40 hours a year in increased productivity.
Cost savings of $10,000 in improved productivity for just one individual office worker using an up-to-date PC has been identified by an American research company, AJ Gold and Associates over a two-year period.
And according to the research, the savings increase depending on the type of work being undertaken by employees.
Whether computers begin to operate slower over time, have constant issues that require troubleshooting or simply refuse to boot up at all, every piece of IT hardware in your office will eventually fail and need to be replaced.
Planning for this “end of life” cycle is the best approach to minimise the damage from failures. Many companies factor in the cost of computer maintenance and repairs, but fail to plan for replacement.
Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) is a cost-effective way to ensure your IT hardware doesn’t cause unexpected or costly repairs, lead to continual disruptions or ongoing complaints from employees about losing valuable time.
Think Technology Australia enables small and mid-sized business to lease the equipment they need, instead of purchasing IT hardware, which can significantly impact cashflow and tie up valuable capital resources.
Any maintenance issues are also eliminated as the leased equipment is fully guaranteed.
We have partnered with a world renown leasing company, Grenke which also offers finance subscriptions to services such as Microsoft Office 365.
Any size business has the predictability of the leasing cost, the flexibility of software options and the reliability of backup and support.
