Importance of Maintenance
Whether it’s ignoring our doctor’s recommendations for a yearly checkup, or turning a blind eye to the sticker on our windshield with the mileage mark that signifies the next servicing, we all have a tendency to ignore regular maintenance. This in spite of the fact that almost everyone has had a time where doing so caused a minor problem to turn far bigger and more costly.
Maintenance of computer systems fall into that same category. While not all outages can be prevented, proactive maintenance can mitigate the risks. Reudincg both the frequency and severity of outages. The average business experiences at least 6 IT outages a year, equaling an approximate 14 hours of downtime. While that may not seem like a tonne of time over the course of a year, that downtime is lost revenue for your business, to the tune of an estimated $137 per minute.
Our maintenance solutions are specifically tailored to your unique computer network, but they will always include two areas that we consider the most important, and most often neglected
Data loss is the #1 cause of downtime. There is no greater waste of time than an employee redoing work because a file was overwritten, deleted, or just misplaced.
By keeping backup system software up to date and backup logs monitored we help increase the likelihood that, when the need arises, the backup will be able to recover that file.
Keeping software updated allows it to operate at peak performance, with bugs fixed before they become problematic. And with computer security concerns at an all-time high, making sure that antivirus software is always current will help keep your files safer and your systems running.Collapse ↑
