As buyers, we like to know the cost of something before we start to buy it.
Usually, that information is readily available, and we know what that cost means. By understanding that cost, we can make an informed decision.
But for a buyer, it's hard to know what a reasonable cost of IT support should be because there isn't the information available to help you make an informed decision.
Technology has become vital to a small business. 44% of businesses consider online services as a core part of their business offer and 85% of businesses now have a blog or a website. So, technology is important to a small business but there are dangers that can target technology.

There’s no denying that there is a lot to do in a business environment, and some things take longer than others...or at least they should. Is your business investing enough time into its network management, and all the tasks, processes, and responsibilities that it involves?
When you experience troubles with your technology, you don’t have time to just sit around and wait for the problem to resolve itself. You need someone by your side to assist with the problem. Yet, many small businesses don’t have the luxury of an in-house IT department that can help its employees resolve problems quickly and efficiently. How can you avoid this common issue and keep downtime to a minimum in the process?
A business without its own IT department will expend vast amounts of time and resources to manage its technology. Tasks like managing your email solution, upgrading or managing your desktop infrastructure, or securing your network from threats, can be draining. If you don’t have time to perform these tasks, then it’s worth it to invest in an outsourced IT provider for your technology needs.
It’s inevitable that your business will face some hard decisions, but no choice is as painful as pulling the plug on the one thing that you’ve dumped your heart and soul into; your business. There is a plethora of problems that could cause a business to consider shutting its doors, but often there is a solution. If technology-related costs and downtime are your main problems, managed IT support can help.
