How often do you find yourself in this situation? You are typing away on your computer pushing through your day-to-day tasks, scratching items off your to-do list, and communicating with your employees when suddenly, your computer freezes up. You’re then forced to perform a hard reset just to get your computer responsive again.
Obviously, this is a problem, and one that can be incredibly disruptive to your productivity. When your technology breaks down, you experience what is called downtime, i.e. time when your organization’s operations are affected in a negative way. Many variables can impact your organization’s operations in this way, but technology is a major culprit and one that you have a surprising amount of control over.
Small issues like the above example are easy to overlook and dismiss if they are not too disruptive too often. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that issues that get overlooked in this way can develop into major problems. If you let something like a frozen computer become a recurring issue over time, then you might be risking something serious like hardware failure, which creates significantly more downtime and costs associated with it.
Next, let’s examine the same scenario in which you experience the frozen computer, but you actually do something about it. Let’s say that you report this problem to your IT department or technician. They immediately deploy a technician to investigate the root cause of the issue. Once it’s addressed, the issue no longer appears, and you can go about your day-to-day responsibilities unimpeded.
Managed IT services and proactive computer maintenance can remove the need for computer repair in most circumstances. If you are taking care of your technology and treating it like an investment rather than a liability, you will find that you spend less on repairs in general because there is less need for it to occur.
