IT Downtime

What is IT downtime? Why is it important?

IT downtime doesn’t just mean a full system outage, such as a power cut or a broken down server.

Downtime can be due to a smaller incident that will ultimately impact your business. These can affect your overall profit and productivity. For example, slow websites and online tools can reduce the effectiveness of our service long term, for both your customers and employees.

Downtime can also occur due to:

  • Overloaded servers due to high traffic
  • Your team being tied up on IT issues rather than completing their work
  • Data breaches and data losses

Cost of downtime

Unplanned IT problems are very common, with Forbes (2022) reporting that “82% of companies have experienced at least one unplanned downtime incident over the past three years.” Of these companies, many have experienced two or more downtime incidents.

When these problems strike, your overall profits can decrease. Unplanned downtime can increase costs as productivity within your team grinds to a halt. This can go on indefinitely until the problem is fixed, and can effect your ability to make more sales and provide services.

Keep costs low with managed IT support

Forbes (2022) reported that “predictive and preventative methods are better at boosting uptime and keeping production running.”

You can’t know what a downtime incident will actually cost you until it happens. By outsourcing your IT support to a team of specialists you can be sure your business is supported 24 hours a day. Productivity will be maintained. Your team can stay on task, instead of sorting out IT problems. Their expertise can be put to better use to improve your company.

With a managed IT infrastructure you can also plan ahead and budget to cover the monthly subscription or usage fees, to ensure low costs.

The benefits of outsourcing your IT support

2022 is the year for growth, and what better way to help with scaling your business than outsourced IT support!

Your business could be in need of a managed IT service this year. Look to outsource all or part of your IT support, in order to increase productivity, connectivity, and scalability.

Here are 5 benefits of outsourcing your IT to a managed service provider.

1. Saving time.

The time you and the leadership team will save alone from NVOY handling device deployments, day-to-day IT support, user admin issues, etc, would cover the cost of the service several times over.

2. Improved productivity.

Instead of getting existing employees to help navigate IT issues, outsourcing can help your staff focus on their core roles. NVOY can give you reliable expertise to get problems fixed quickly.

3. Decreasing the overall IT infrastructure costs.

Housing your own IT team can be expensive, with lots of different costs associated such as salary, price of recruitment, company benefits, insurance, training, and taxes. Most fast-growing businesses cannot afford what comes with in-house teams, so that’s where outsourcing matters. By outsourcing your IT support needs, you pay for only the services you need, helping to keep running costs low.

4. A 24-hour fully staffed IT department at a fraction of the cost.

You will have access to a team of experts 24 hours a day, five days a week. This means IT problems can be fixed quickly, even out of office hours, which can decrease downtime and keep running costs low.

5. Peace of mind!

By outsourcing, you will have peace of mind that the IT infrastructure of your company is taken care of. With a team of IT experts who specialize in different areas, you can be sure they will be there for all your IT needs and will remove the pain of IT. This means you and your team will be able to put more time and energy into running your business.
