Escape the Dreaded ‘IT Money Pit’
Information Technology is the backbone of modern business – it is the infrastructure on which businesses run and employees work. It is the wheel that keeps everything rolling smoothly. As such, it makes perfect sense our IT should be reliable and contribute to solid ROI.
Problems arise when a business does not put care or priority into effectively managing their technology systems, and instead falls into the “IT Money Pit,” a very deep, VERY expensive hole that can be difficult to climb out of. The last thing any business owner wants to do is spend countless hours and dollars fixing broken systems (which will probably break again shortly after – whoops!), exhaustively trying to determine why things aren’t working properly, and just generally cursing at a blank computer screen.
We’ve all been there, many times, and it seriously stinks! It’s expensive, it’s frustrating, it’s downright Hellish dealing with an IT nightmare.
It doesn’t have to be that way! We’re here to help you see the light!
Let your Business Technology “Give Back,” Rather than Take
With the right tools and know-how, IT will not only be reliable, but will contribute to greater business output and more $$$.
Yes, that’s right – more dollars, cash money, dinero, mullah. Who doesn’t want more of that?
With the right business technology systems and management, you will have more money in your pocket at the end of the year than would ever be possible in that icky money pit alternative, AND you will see increased overall workplace productivity at the same time.
How’s that for a sweet double whammy.
The Critical first step to Achieving High-ROI Information Technology
The absolute most critical first step on your quest for high-ROI IT nirvana is to find an experienced IT Advisor. We repeat – find an IT Advisor!
And we’re not talking about any old computer geek – you need a strategic and experienced IT professional who not only understands computers, but who understands business, well. An IT professional who actually wants to save you money long term by developing more effectual and reliable systems. A true business partner.
This person or team should have extensive experience within your industry and intimately understand your greatest concerns and goals, not only from an IT standpoint, but from a business perspective as well.
People, NOT products, are the key to high-ROI Information Technology.
Think of an IT Advisor like a Financial or Investment Advisor. These two roles have many similarities. Unless a person is fully confident in her ability to manage her money and investments on a regular basis, she prefers to entrust her assets to the guidance and support of an expert advisor. The Investment Advisor requires an initial investment on the client’s part for his time and services, but can (hopefully) deliver greater return on the client’s investments than would have been possible otherwise.
An IT Advisor operates in much the same way: An IT Advisor knows how to manage IT for the greatest reliability and overall return on its initial investment. The IT Advisor is a master at effectively planning for the future and avoiding money pits that may be looming down the road (which in turn saves you money).
And the IT Advisor can expertly strategize how to better leverage your IT to get the most from your company’s most important investment – its people.
As with anything else, if you’re not an IT expert and don’t feel confident managing the many facets of your company’s IT systems, stop spinning your wheels.
