Repair Or Replace
This year, your business needs to get value for money from EVERYTHING it does
Last year was a year for the books.
And… er… this year has started off in a… less than positive way
Although we’re hopeful for a change in fortune – at least towards the summer – we’re still a long way off things being back to good old “2019 normal”.
Add to that the Great Recession that we’re expecting. And it’s clear to any good business owner that we all really need to spend our budgets wisely.
Every pound spent should bring value for money. It’s vital that we see the return on investment from absolutely everything we do.
And that, of course, includes your IT spend.
Sometimes though, not spending on IT can cost more in the long run
While it’s tempting to save money and stretch your budget, one area that you can’t afford to scrimp on is your IT support.
You should already know the value of working with an IT support partner who maintains and monitors your whole IT infrastructure while keeping your data secure.
But what about your business’s spend on devices?
Good maintenance can only stretch a device’s lifespan so far. And if your PCs or laptops are more than 3 years old, it’s likely they’re costing you more to run than the cash cost of a new device.
FACT: A 5 year old PC costs twice as much to run as a new one
That means constant repairs and upgrades are not bringing you the savings you’d expect. And it’s likely productivity will be taking a big hit as well, as devices slow down and degrade over time.
In fact, you could be making a very expensive mistake using old equipment.
Here’s how I know this to be true
My name is Sam James and I own and run IT support and data security business Fresh Tech. My team and I spend a lot of time recommending the best course of action when it comes to ageing equipment.
We’re firm believers that you don’t need to spend a small fortune on your devices. We never suggest trading in older models when a newer one is released. And we certainly would never encourage our clients to spend their budget where it’s not necessary.
However, sometimes it is simply more cost effective to replace devices rather than attempting another repair or upgrade. The tricky part is knowing when the real cost of repair outweighs the cost and benefits of a new device.
We’re currently offering local businesses a device health check, to help you to determine if you could be making more long-term savings.
My team of experts will talk to you about your business, the devices that you use, and any issues that you’ve been facing with them (or repairs/upgrades that you’ve already made).
There’s no cost to this check.
Before we go ahead, we’ll need to have a quick video call (no more than 15 minutes) to discuss your business, and answer your questions.
It’s really easy to arrange this. My live calendar is below. Take a look and select the appointment date and time that suits you best.
There’s no obligation to go ahead with the check after we talk. And certainly no obligation to buy anything, ever.
