Here’s How You Can Minimize The Cost Of Downtime

 In Blog

Technology is the backbone of your business, so downtime can dramatically damage the bottom line. According to a 2016 ITIC survey, one hour of downtime can cost you more than $100,000. The longer it takes to get your system back up, the scarier the numbers get.

There are steps you can start taking today to prepare your systems before you find yourself staring IT downtime in the eye again

  1. Prioritize Process Efficiency
  2. It’s pretty simple. The more efficient your processes run, the less downtime you experience. Investing your time and effort into streamlining processes will go a long way when it comes to reducing the loss of productivity your employees’ experience when hardware crashes and their workday is interrupted.

  3. Have a Business Continuity Plan in Place
  4. No one likes to think that a cyber attack, natural disaster or even a simple accident could happen to them, but it’s a reality that you’re better off being prepared for. A business continuity plan ensures that your business can continue to operate even after a major incident brings all your systems down.

  5. Outsource What You Can’t Handle
  6. If you don’t have the time, resources or tech proficiency to monitor your system, outsourcing your IT to a managed services provider (MSP) is the simplest way to minimize system downtime impact. An MSP will monitor and maintain your vital systems to pinpoint red flags and eliminate vulnerabilities.
