Economic Contractions and Technology in Small Business – an Onsite Observation

July 10, 2008

Today a prospective Onsite client inquired about repair of his Microsoft Windows 2000 Desktop – the PC endlessly reboots.  The prospective client continued our discussion proclaiming a $250 limit to fix the problem, although in the next sentence Mr. Client announced his eight year-old hard drive is full and contains applications and data that are irreplaceable.  Does this situation sound familiar? 

As the economy continues to contract and business slows in an uncertain economy, consumers stop spending.  Small businesses especially watch expenses and PC maintenance is generally reduced or neglected.  If your business uses computers, backup to reliable media (i.e. tape, off-site, USB external hard drive) of important data and applications is essential – especially if your systems are older than three years. 

Hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan failure are common and relatively inexpensive to maintain; however a failure of any of the above can be quite costly.  When the economy contracts, most watch their expenditures and it is easy to neglect maintenance.  Don’t be “… penny wise and dollar foolish!” where your data is concerned.  Call Onsite for an assessment and maintenance of your systems before you lose data and productivity to system crashes.
