Many small to medium-sized businesses have technology needs that quickly become overwhelming. Most business owners find themselves in a tough position trying to run their company while doing their best to keep a handle on the nuances of technology. It is very common to fall into one of the following categories:
- Delegation to the Tech Savvy Employee: The task of “IT guy” is delegated to the unlucky employee who is not a technology professional, but just happens to be the tech-savviest person around. Unfortunately, this means someone on your staff is spending a large amount of time addressing IT problems rather than being productive at their actual job. That person also does not have the time or knowledge to plan for technology within the business, dooming them to a continually reactive cycle that never prepares you for future growth, challenges, or demands.
- Call a service contractor: There’s also the occasional contractor, or collection of contractors, that end up providing “break/fix” service and will continue to “band-aid” the problems. This approach leads to confusion, poor implementation, and dependency on imperfect solutions.
- Hire an IT staff member: Hiring another staff member to do onsite IT work means paying another full-time salary for someone who is only utilized for a specialty that has nothing to do with your business. IT professionals aren’t exactly cheap, either; 5-7 years of experience may be worth $50-70K+ a year. That salary only gets you one person, not a team of professionals with expertise, knowledge, and discipline. There are also challenges scheduling around vacation, training, illness, etc.
