Why Plan for Technology
The false economies of poor planning
Too many businesses take a short-term approach to technology and use bandaids to fix problems. With systems barely limping along, the inefficiencies and hidden costs of lost productivity and lowered staff morale are enormous.
Implemented properly, technology is a source of competitive advantage. Ignored or poorly executed, and it’s a business weakness waiting to be exploited.
The need to align technology to your business
Businesses have become increasingly reliant on technology-enabled systems. The rise of the Internet also requires that these systems work more closely with those of suppliers and clients.
As technology is becoming more and more complex, selecting the best solution is now more difficult than ever.
To see substantial benefits, technology planning needs to be elevated to management’s agenda. A technology plan linked to your business objectives is essential.
Seven Reasons Why...
It's the best investment your company could ever make.
1. A Backup You Can Rely On
Just because you have a backup system in place doesn't mean it's always working. Did you know that nearly 8% of backup systems fail? Travlea Support will regularly conduct test restores from your backup to ensure it's not affected by corrupt data, incorrect settings, transportation, or off-site storage.
2. Protection from Viruses
Having the latest antivirus software will not prevent viruses from infecting your network and potentially destroying months of valuable data. Every day new viruses are being designed to target and disable antivirus software. For complete protection we’ll regularly check your antivirus software and ensure it’s working correctly and using the latest virus definitions.
3. Security Against Hackers
Every week hackers manage to find new ways to exploit software in order to infiltrate company networks, access data, deface websites, or utilise internet connections for their own purposes. Software companies like Microsoft release security patches each week, and when installed correctly, these vulnerabilities are closed, making your systems secure.
4. Faster, More Stable Computers
Our consultants will regularly defragment or reformat your hard disks, clear temporary files, install software updates to patch bugs, and check hardware (such as cooling fans). These activities will ensure your computers run faster and more smoothly, and can even delay the need to upgrade computers by a year or more.
5. Better Use of Existing IT Systems
Most companies only use about 20% of their system’s capabilities. With a Travlea Support consultant regularly on-site, we’ll show you how to maximise your system, use more features, and demonstrate many useful tips and tricks.
6. Less Hardware Failures
Hard disks spin at over 7,200 revolutions per minute. If not regularly monitored by an experienced consultant , these will eventually fail, causing loss of data and crisis situations. Having a Travlea Support consultant regularly checking your system allows us to predict hard disk failures and address these in a planned and non-disruptive manner.
7. The Complete Resources of an IT Department
Under a Travlea Support Plan you’ll have designated consultants who will know your systems intimately. But as no individual can know everything, they’ll draw expertise from our team of professionals. You will also have access to our Helpdesk service (including after-hours and on weekends), network design consultants, and product specialists. With the size of our team, you can rest assured you’ll get the fastest and best support available.
