IT Outsourcing, how do we make it friendly?
A few months on the school run I got three miles up the road when my daughter cries out;
“My phone, I’ve forgot my phone, turn around!”
My first thoughts were that she really didn’t need that phone, but she kicked up such a fuss telling me how she couldn’t go about her day without it, so I turned the car around.
I spent too much time later that day thinking how ridiculously my daughter had behaved about her phone.
I told myself that it wasn’t that long ago that none of us used mobile or had internet and how I could go without technology, no problem.
Then it happened…
I few weeks later I did the same thing and it hit me how much I thought I needed that phone and turned the car around again!
The point here is that you will miss it when IT’s gone. I’m not just talking about your mobile, I’m talking about your business applications, email, documents, etc.
I’m still shocked that a high number of small to medium businesses put little or very low priority on their IT systems.
I get the impression from some business owners that technology feels like a necessary evil and a costly pain which needn’t be the case.
IT Outsourcing is important, It’s no mistake that some of our most success clients prioritise technology at a much higher level.
Investing properly into technology has a number of benefits especially when things go wrong, and inevitably they will.
Having a strong focus and understanding of your technology, business critical applications and such, means that we can get you back on track faster and this is made easier if technology is up to date.
Avoiding technology will not make it go away.
Some of the biggest complaints is that IT is boring, unfriendly, geek-ish, complicated, the list goes on.
That doesn’t have to be the case anymore the IT technician is changing.
We find more and more quality people with the right technical skills, soft skills and empathy.
Just like the most successful companies investing in the quality of technology we invest heavily in our people to ensure our clients get the best out of IT Outsourcing.
