Get a Grip on Your IT Budget

Oct 26, 2017 | blog

Maybe you don’t know it yet, but your IT budget is out of control. You discover this at inconvenient times, and when you’re slammed with an extravagant invoice, it all becomes clear. That’s because you’re in break-fix mode. This is reactive IT. And it’s a losing game.

What we want to show you is that it’s possible to get a grip on your IT budget. And like any other kind of budget, the key is to think ahead.

Reactive Thinking

Most businesses chase their problems. Imagine a scenario where you gain a new employee. You need to set her up with a workstation, give her access to software and hardware, ensure proper cabling and so on. The question becomes, what’s the real cost of hiring your stellar new team member?

Here’s another. Say you keep getting notifications that your server is running low on disk space. The problem is, you still haven’t paid it off? Do you have $3,000 that can be expensed to bigger hard drives or a new server? Do you throw it on your company credit card? Are you guessing how much space you need?

Budgeting for technology and growth, for most companies, is a guessing game. And leaning heavily on this method of IT budgeting is a little like playing the wishing game.

Proactive Thinking

There’s a way to flatline your IT budget. To change from reacting to technical issues to thinking proactively about how technology can help your business grow is the essence of managed IT services. And it can reinvigorate how your business operates and how you set your goals.

All for one flat, monthly rate.
