Tip of the Week: 3 Strategies That Will Save You Money on Your Technology

Tip of the Week: 3 Strategies That Will Save You Money on Your Technology

Technology can get costly, especially if you are looking to integrate new tools into your business’ existing infrastructure. Since this technology is going to play a major role in how your business performs, you need to be vigilant about making the right investments. This week, we thought we’d help by providing three strategies that you should consider when spending on technology. 

What’s Practical Isn’t Always What’s Cool

One of the main problems with buying technology is that it can be super cool and you want the best. A lot of businesses have a tendency to spend much more than they need to with the fatuous notion that the organization will grow into it. Awesome technology can help, but it can also really harm your business. Software can be too complicated and expensive for your business’ needs, and hardware costs can skyrocket and be completely wasted over time as you fail to use the resources your business has purchased. 

Your best bet is to address the pain points of your business, but do it in a way that makes sense for your bottom line. Using cloud-based platforms like Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or getting workstations that fit the needs of your workers are two really good suggestions to cut your overall technology costs.

Consider Bulk Purchases

Speaking of workstations, when your company is doing a refresh and you are searching for multiple workstations for your staff, it may be a good idea to try and buy technology in bulk as it can come with some hefty cost savings. Most technology vendors will cut you a deal if you purchase a lot of workstations at once, and even in a day of SaaS-dominated work software, if you host your own software, you may be able to get a break from the software vendor if you pay your cards right. 

Outsource Your IT Support

Hiring an IT administrator can be really costly. That’s not to say you shouldn’t do it if you can afford to, but if your business is like many other SMBs, finding the expertise and support your IT demands is essential to keeping your business running efficiently. This can be done for less through the use of managed IT services. Not only do you get comprehensive IT support for your team, you also get proactive monitoring and management services, backup and disaster recovery, vendor and patch management, and more. These services are designed specifically to keep your business’ IT up and running and to protect your business against the myriad of threats lurking around.
