Does Your Business Need A Tech Health Check-Up? | Abbotsford Tech Support
Business Tech Health Check-Up Time
Health is often high on the priority list for people at New Year. Whether it is recovery from the overindulgence or the festive season, or just a rethink of priorities, many try some kind of health resolution. (Pre-pandemic, gyms would always see that glorious spike in membership. Plus, that’s when we seem to be bombarded with Weightwatchers or Peloton ads!). But what about business tech health? For business owners, it’s also good time for reflection and planning. A time to look at the previous years’ successes and failures, and a time for planning the year ahead. Just like humans, businesses should get a regular Business Tech health check-up!
If employees are the heart of a business, then technology has increasingly become the central nervous system! Or maybe the pulmonary system…. I’m not a human health professional, but I’m sure you get what I mean. In other words, it is pretty vital to keep everything going!
Planning an annual business tech health check helps you pre-empt problems before they happen. Not only that, it could also help you find ways to streamline operations better, increase efficiency and ultimately increase profit!
So, where do you start?
That’s a good question. But, for every business, it is going to have a different answer. It all depends on your size and structure. However, to give you a starting point, we have added a free downloadable checklist on our website! This free pdf is a basic assessment list of the most common questions you need to ask, when performing a business tech health check-up. We have even added a points system to help you measure that assessment.
Of course, this list is just a starting point. A chance to open up the conversation. However, not all businesses are equal. Technology needs and structures are unique to every business. So, your business tech health needs may be more complex… and potentially have additional vulnerabilities not included on this list. For that reason, we highly recommend that every business, no matter the size, schedule an annual appointment with a local IT professional, who can go into more depth.
If you are in the BC Fraser Valley, we can perform that assessment for you! Our team of experts can give your business a more thorough assessment, including evaluating the projected lifespan of your systems, potential flaws and ways technology can help your business’ efficiency (and ultimately your profit!).
