Cut Costs with Managed IT Services

Outdated Business Technology

Replacing Your Outdated Business Technology Helps You Cut Costs

Companies looking for ways to cut costs frequently leave one stone unturned. Surprisingly, there are many costs that can be avoided by investing in modern technology. How can managed IT services enable your company to avoid the mounting costs of relying on old technology? Here are 3 overlooked cost-cutting measures you can enact with a Managed IT services partner.

How a Few Minutes Add Up to Big Losses

If an employee missed 24 days of work, you would probably take note. This is the reality for a lot of companies that require their teams to utilize outdated and disconnected technology. But they hardly ever realize it because the time leaks are happening in minute increments. It’s harder to notice when an employee loses 46 minutes per day (according to one study), 30 seconds at a time waiting for an application to launch, for files to save or open, or sending emails to manage business processes.

Time is inarguably one of the most precious resources a company has to manage. Consider that when unrecoverable minutes or hours are lost to preventable occurrences such as an old computer refusing to start up. Those are dollars going up in smoke that you’ll never get back.

Unforeseen Costs to Personnel

Beyond the financial implications of tech problems is the detrimental impact it can have on your employees. The frustration, disappointment, and dread of a computer freezing mid-task is a huge drag on their job satisfaction. In the worst case scenarios, they’ve lost hours of work that now requires them to work overtime or weekends to recreate. According to a survey, employees carry their pressure and workload into their off time, with 28% stating they regularly work overtime to make up for the time lost due to outdated technology.
That’s not the only way outdated technology can destroy employee productivity, morale, and retention. In one study, nearly half of respondents stated slow technology hindered their productivity. As well, 20% stated it makes them lose their focus which costs more time to get back into. In extreme cases, 10% stated that frustrations and setbacks caused by old technology had them looking for a new job.
