In the business world there are often situations where you have to settle, but in regards to selecting an IT support service, it’s imperative that you consider how much that settling could cost.
If your company relies on technology, even just one hour of downtime could cost you heavily, so you need to ask yourself if having a cheaper provider is worth the risk. Having service that is only “good enough” could increase your chance of IT outages which can lead to:
• Lost revenue
• Compliance failure
• Damage to your brand
• Lowered stock price
• Mitigation costs
• Lost productivity
• Career/Retention negatively impacted
• Business failure
This list may spark some concern for just how much downtime could cost you, so we created an infographic (posted below) which provides a simple calculation method to get an idea of what that cost could be.
Although it would be nice to have it all and get superior service for a low price, that’s just not how the world works. You must decide which factor is most important for you. Is the price of a “good enough” provider worth it? Or does your business need the reliability of top-level service?
