We know what you’re thinking; hiring a family friend or kid from the neighborhood to deal with your IT support sounds like a good idea.
It’s cheap, for one thing, and you probably feel like you’re helping a friend out. But getting inferior service means putting your entire business at risk, settling for less and getting ineffective and potentially disastrous results.
When it comes to your business IT you can’t afford to make the wrong decision. Here are 5 reasons why you can’t just hire family to take care of your technology.
- You’re Selling Yourself Short
How highly do you think of your business? You need support that matches that, and hiring family or a friend won’t cut it. The most expensive IT isn’t always the best, but you really do get what you pay for. Getting proper support ensures you get the absolute best return on your IT investment, and isn’t that what matters more than shelling out a smaller amount upfront?
- You’ll Be Plagued by IT Issues
When you’re not getting the best support, your IT suffers. You’ll waste time wrestling with technology and trying to answer questions that a knowledgeable IT team would have taken care of right away.
- Your Output Will Suffer
Not only will you struggle to get work done, but the quality will take a dive. Technology is there to streamline your work and improve its effectiveness, but when you’re not getting the right tools and support that’s simply impossible. Your productivity and work quality will both suffer.
- Protection Needs to Be Taken Seriously
Your cousin may know a lot about computers, but it’s unlikely that they have what it takes to truly get you setup and protected. That means installing proper firewalls, spam protection, mobile solutions, and setting up a business continuity plan. They also need to ensure you’re always compliant with industry-set regulations.
- You’ll End Up Back at Square One
When you’re getting one-and-done service from unexperienced support, you end up back where you started in no time. We’re not just thinking of right now; our goal is to improve your IT and then keep you protected going forward so you never have to worry about IT or security.
