In this economy, it is crucial to be innovative and to stay on top of the latest information so your business (whether small or big) can emerge from the recession as a strong competitor. Businesses are beginning to realize the importance of IT, and it is gradually becoming a priority. Don’t let your PC impact the success of your company.
If you own a small business, you probably already realize the PC is the centerpiece for employees and business productivity. Because of the poor economy, in an attempt to cut costs, businesses have a tendency to cut back on investing in new computers, which results in about 70% of PCs being older than 3 years. Many of these are even operating on a system like Windows XP which gradually breaks down over time (we recommend a repair install every 4 years) and is due for end of life in 2014. While putting off this cost seems like a budget saver, it can seriously impact the productivity of your business and add long term costs.
How an older PC can affect your business:
• Lack of security
• Slower productivity
• Cost of maintenance
• Newer applications are unavailable or unsupported
Modern PC’s running Windows 7 or Windows 8 offer many innovative and useful tools, as well as a growth in productivity, which even price conscious businesses can benefit from. Be one step ahead of other companies and replace all computers 3 years, or older…today.
