Information Technology and the way we use it is changing. For years, SMEs have seen IT as an overhead and a cost to the business and complained when they had to buy something new! Thankfully this is no longer the case, and in fact without IT and IT services 99% of businesses would cease to exist.
The traditional model has always been to have IT systems and try to make them work for your business. The modern way of doing things is to let IT drive the business and get a genuine “Return on Investment.” This model, of course, needs a little bit more thought and planning but if done correctly, can see you through the next five years.
IT is a cost that every business has to bear and unless budgeted, it always comes as a shock when things need replaced or upgraded. What you have to do as a business is work out your cost per user per month and budget that over the next five years. That way you can have a rolling replacement of all IT hardware and licenses. Furthermore, it allows you to align your IT systems with your business strategy, with the end goal to make your business more productive and more profitable.
At Unleashed, we are doing this for quite a few of our customers and it does involve asking some difficult questions. However, at the end of the process you have a report that you can give to any IT company to implement, or choose to use us.
So, for a taster of the difficult questions we will ask you: can you afford not to carry out an IT Strategy Report? The first discussion is always free of charge, you can contact us on 0333 240 0565 or you can book an appointment by contacting us below.
