PC Repairs Meath: Embracing Information Technology – the Key to Small Business Success

business computing

A well maintained PC can have a long life.

While many entrepreneurs and small business managers are highly-skilled in a certain field, a perceived lack of skills in computing may mean they baulk at using information technology as a tool to drive their business.

A professional online presence—be that a good website, a facebook campaign, or an online shop—will drive customers to your door in increasing numbers. It will change your business, and for the better. But what if you’re afraid of change, of using technology to grow your business?

Fear of the unknown, of not being in complete control, can be very powerful in holding entrepreneurs back from hardware and software solutions that could make their lives easier and their work much more efficient.

However, what with the explosion of social networking in recent years, and apps that allow you to do everything from managing your to-do list right up to relieving stress with simulated bubble-wrap that ‘pops’ when you press it (yes, that is weird), it’s easy to feel ‘behind the times’.

Don’t fall into that trap: freer-spending young people (and despite emigration, Ireland has one of the youngest populations in Europe) are growing up in a world where it is completely normal to use the internet to search for products and services, enquire about them / access independent word-of-mouth-type opinions about them, and to purchase them online. For them, if you’re not online, you don’t exist. In today’s world, every company is an online company.

So think strategically: start today to make information technology the engine that powers your business. Surveys have shown that in the vast majority of successful companies, management regards IT as being of strategic importance for their business.

Think of it as being like a car or truck: you don’t need to know how it works to drive the thing, or to make it work for you. Likewise with IT systems and strategies—get some sound advice before you buy, and figure out the running costs (in terms of cash and man-hours) before jumping in. Building up a good working relationship with a straight-up IT services company is half the battle.

Your IT services provider should be able to advise you on what you need (and what fits your budget!) that allows you to grow, ensuring you don’t have some obsolete hunk-of-junk on your desk in two years time. Service is the key: can you rely on your IT provider to sort out any issues that arise? They need to work alongside you so you can concentrate on growing your business—with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that everything is under control.
