3 Reasons Unreliable, Stagnant Technology is a Dice Roll

3 Reasons Unreliable, Stagnant Technology is a Dice Roll

Take a moment and think about the most important day in your business. Was it your launch day? The day you revealed a new product? The day your manufacturing line got a new machine? The day that you closed a huge new account? What would happen if during your biggest day of your business, your IT systems completely failed you? I’m not talking like - yeah, some things aren’t working. I’m talking catastrophic data loss, complete system lock down and lack of access. What would you do if that happened?

Going Beyond Good IT: What Makes Great Business Technology?

We have a lot of worthy competitors in the markets we serve. They provide really good IT services. Some of them are even Managed Services companies, and those companies are perfectly fine. But what does it take to stand out in a sea of competition with Managed Services companies? How can one company take “good” IT to the next level? I sat in a prospect meeting recently and discussed this with a company. They were signed up with what I believe to be one of our most worthy competitors, but what I heard surprised me. They told me that their IT provider, while perfectly fine, wasn’t giving them what they needed. Here are a few things that prospect distinguished between a great business technology provider and one that’s just good enough…
