As we head into the New Year, businesses across the world are wrapping up their budgets, finalizing their business plans, and getting ready to start a brand-new decade off right. A lot has changed in the past ten years, especially when it comes to technology.
The use of mobile devices has exploded, becoming the dominate way that many people utilize technology and access online information. Early in the decade, being mobile friendly was an added bonus. Now, it is a necessity.
Not only does your website need to work with smartphones and tablets, but so do your sales tools, software systems, and more. All of this creates a greater need for security and system monitoring as more and more devices are interacting with your systems.
It’s not just smartphones, but smart devices, ranging from printers to coffee makers. All of these devices create what’s known as the Internet of Things, and while their automation and remote-controllability is highly intuitive, it also creates more ways into your system.
Businesses small and large are more exposed to threats than ever. To stay safe, you need on-going maintenance and monitoring. This will keep your systems up-to-date with the latest security patches, while also notifying you if anything goes wrong.
Even businesses that have IT staff can struggle to keep up with everything. That’s why we’ve also seen managed IT services grow over the past decade. Managed IT services provide a level of support and professional knowledge that was once out of reach for small to mid-sized businesses.
The need for dependable, on-going IT services is only going to grow over this next decade. That’s why we offer affordable, scalable solutions that grow with your needs. For a flat monthly fee, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re backed by a full staff of IT experts. We call it Stress Free IT®.
