Reviewing expenditure and setting budgets is good business practice for organisations of all sizes. But when it comes to your IT systems, are potential upgrades an expense to be postponed or an investment that will generate returns?
Any thoughts about upgrading your IT systems and hardware should be carefully considered to ensure you are selecting something that will enhance your business operations. We are always happy to listen to your concerns and recommend solutions that will aid your business.
So assuming you are considering whether to invest now or later in appropriate system upgrades, here are 4 reasons why you should do it sooner rather than later.
Reason #1 – Improve customer service and generate faster sales
If you haven’t embraced remote access for your sales and customer service teams then you should do so now. Providing your sales and service team with the right remote access tools means they can check stock levels, evaluate delivery times and place orders while they’re on the road or working off-site.
For your customers, that’s an impressive level of service and it will help them stay loyal to your business. To learn more about one of the solutions we provide, see our blog on cloud-based phone systems here.
Reason #2 – Maintenance costs and downtime
Older systems, software and hardware are unreliable, unstable and slower. This causes higher maintenance costs, possible emergency call-outs and potential disruptions to your business operations. Older systems are also less secure and therefore more vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Reason #3 – Power savings
Did you know, newer computers and servers generally use less power than older models? With soaring power costs, investing in new hardware or cloud-based servers may help to contain your business power bill.
Reason #4 – You can outgrow your IT systems
Good IT systems are designed to grow with your needs but there are limits. So if your current system wasn’t well designed or your business has grown since your system was installed, it’s time you investigate options to support your business now and in the future.
