Can you remember when paying for a cell phone plan was not a part of your family’s business technology? Now it’s not even a question of “if” your kids will have cell phones but “when” they are ready to have one responsibly. As that cell plan adds new lines, you adjust your monthly budget accordingly, right? And we all learned to think ahead to upgrade costs for all electronic devices necessary in our lives now, like smartphones, tablets and computers for school. All of these now-can’t-live-without expenses are a fairly recent budgetary phenomenon.
It’s the same for your growing business. In the early days of business technology it was enough to know someone you could call if your computers started acting weird. Then the need for technology skills grew to become a paid position on staff and it usually included company perks and benefits. Technological advances required continuing education for that staff person. Simultaneously the array of choices for vendors and hardware also expanded quite quickly. Business owners now have to spend time learning about all that and on assessing the need to upgrade tyour on-staff IT person.
To the rescue: outsourced IT management services.
You as a business owner will find a company who can address all your business technology needs and, just like your family’s cell phone plan, you incorporate that expense into your annual budget. Also like your family cell phone plan, you should expect some accountability from the recipient of this monthly payment.

We learn how you want to grow, then we outline what technology you may need to get there based on what you already have in place.
