It happens very frequently. We give a client a new estimate for a server change-out or workstation refresh and their eyebrows go up. They wonder – why exactly am I paying $700-$1000 for a workstation when I can walk into Best Buy and purchase a computer that will run the same applications for $399? Business class technology equipment, including workstations, routers and firewalls, costs more for a reason. Here are the reasons behind the cost of business-class technology equipment that might help you understand the reason for the expense.
What are you really paying for when you decide to choose the inexpensive route? There are always hidden costs. There’s a value to every service and piece of equipment that you purchase. Make sure that you’re maximizing yours and have a true understanding of where you’re losing or gaining that value. Purchasing business class equipment as a business isn’t an option. You owe it to your customers and employees to have high quality equipment that will help them to be productive and deliver the experience that they’re expecting when interacting with your business. Never forget that you get what you pay for. Invest your technology budget wisely from the start.
