Every business has some sort of management tasks that requires foresight, and staying up on them can keep headache-inducing situations from constantly causing downtime and costing you time; and, make no mistake, time is money. Being more proactive not only provides sound strategies, it can really mitigate the amount of problems you have to deal with. As we describe what it means to be proactive, and how that strategy will almost always help you save money, consider how you are implementing a proactive approach to your business.
When your business’ profitability is tied to its efficient and effective use of technology, it’s critically important to keep those systems running properly. The best way to achieve this is to be as proactive as possible in the management of your central information systems, networks, and end points. With all this technology that needs to be constantly maintained, reacting to every problem becomes very costly in terms of time and materials.
Think about it this way: You are still going to be paying for everything you normally would be paying for when your IT is down, which essentially means you are paying for nothing. Say your router stops working. You don’t have a spare. You have to get another router immediately, but it takes an hour or longer to get the new router, change it out, and begin to configure it. That’s hours of downtime for an integral, but inexpensive, part of your business’ computing network. Imagine if your server becomes corrupted or fails? That’s a complete game changer.
