Spiralling IT costs – and how to avoid them

avoid spiralling IT costs

With technology playing an increasing part in business life, most of us need some help from time to time. We’ve seen many cases of of spiralling IT costs, with customers paying high prices for what seem on the face of it relatively straightforward IT installations and maintenance.

It’s not uncommon to see small companies paying for help to set up new software for example, and then having to pay again to have that new software work the way their business needs it to. Bills rise as technicians make multiple visits to complete work and resolve issues that had been expected to be covered in the original setup. Companies often end up paying double or even triple the expected costs.

When you’re paying for IT Services by the hour (plus travel time), you will always have the dilemma of deciding when “enough is enough”. If you rely on a local IT support guy, you may also have to wait until they can fit you in around other clients. Our customers, on the other hand, receive a full year of help and support for what is often the price charged for a single call-out.

For just £22 per workstation per month, our Help & Support includes:

Voice and Video
