Why keeping that 3 year old PC gets costly!

Author , Posted In Posted in: IT Consulting, Microsoft

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.
