The secret to saving money on IT headaches and costs

Compass Cloud Hosted SolutionsInformation Technology, all businesses need it, but if you’re a small to medium sized business can you manage this cost effectively in-house?

There’s a common misconception that its cheaper to do it yourself, but how many businesses have sat down and added up what it costs to run their IT systems every year?

A rough example of the costs

You need an IT engineer with SBS knowledge to start with who easily commands an average salary of approx. $60 k per year plus related expenses such as a work mobile to be on call and training when new technology arrives. Of course you’ll need to factor in cover when they are sick or on holiday.

Then you have to account for software licence and upgrade costs plus purchase and house your expensive server and related hardware in an air conditioned, secure environment. You’ll need to back up all your business information too.

Sounds expensive right?

The secret is to get the experts to manage your IT network. Like us!
