Invisible IT that just works
For most companies, you have to upgrade your entire system at least once every 3-5 years and the cost of technology just keeps on growing. This constant upgrading is just not sustainable for small-medium size organisations.
It is also far too expensive to upgrade or replace traditional systems while trying to keep ahead of rising standards for quality ICT products. There is a way to to reduce technology costs it’s called cloud computing with Google Apps for Business.
"Access previously unheard of flexibility to communicate and collaborate from anywhere in the world, from any device."
These indirect services make up the other 80% of the costs of owning a computer. Unfortunately, the average SMB pays out 6.4% of its annual revenue on IT expenses the equates to approximately $700 per user per month. Even worse, is the decrease in productivity due to employees losing 30 minutes per week trying to fix their own or a co-worker’s PC problems.
Here’s a game changing concept that is cost effective and just works. Try subscribing to a hosted service and use low-cost, easy to use personal computing devices, leave all the operational complexities, updates and upgrades to a service provider. You will uncomplicate your IT infrastructure and administration processes by incorporating procedures to improve end-user operations. This will ultimately decrease downtime and significantly reduce technology costs.
"Spend less time managing your IT infrastructure. Your employees always have access to the latest software, including the newest features and security updates. You don't need to buy or maintain servers and everything can be managed from a single interface."
In just 24 hours your business can be up and running on Google Apps, with customised email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org). All you need to use and keep Google Apps up to date is an Internet browser, as it updates automatically, every time you log in. Better yet, as your business grows, you can add new users with just a few clicks. No need to buy or maintain your own servers or client software, everything can be managed from a single interface.
This renders huge cuts in the cost of technology. As well as, exponentially improving productivity and efficiency, as your employees will always have access to the latest software, including the newest features and security updates, with no more specialised hardware or client software to install and maintain.
Google Apps is truly a dynamic way to employ affordable simple technology and the benefits keep racking up;
"When you plug in an electrical appliance you expect electricity to flow to power the appliance. You see a plug and a socket and behind that is a vast invisible infrastructure to generate and distribute electricity but that does not concern you and why should it. You are a consumer and pay for the electricity you consume ‘as a service’." (Frank and Chadha, Thinking of...Going Google Apps? Ask the Smart Questions)
"Subsequently, research highlights, that a well-maintained computer is 37% less expensive than one that isn’t, often saving several thousand pounds per PC, per year."
Google Apps is truly simple technology that just works.
