With the end of financial year coming up – it is a good time to reflect on how much downtime you have had over the past 12 months. A lot of people don’t take into account the total cost.
How much has it cost you and your business in;
- lost sales,
- wages (people standing around waiting for things to be fixed) and
- mental health
– SO COUNT THE ENTIRE COST OF DOWNTIME! This includes your time!
While it can’t be totally eliminated a wise investment in IT, not just hardware and software but in services also, can dramatically reduce downtime and the total costs involved.
I read the following today –
“IT is a core competency, not an expense to be minimised”
IT is definitely a core competency in most businesses today and it usually is false economy to minimise expenses in this area. Business owners need to see spending in IT as a wise investment and not just a cost of doing business.
