As a small business, how can you save money when I.T. can seem so expensive?

It seems like every company is now moving towards a subscription based system.  I’ll admit, when it first started happening, even I was a bit skeptical. But there are some really good products with really good savings out there that small to medium businesses are just missing out on. Microsoft alone has several different subscription based services SaaS (software as a service), and IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) are two growing segments in the I.T. world and they are saving companies thousands of dollars per year. SaaS (such as Office 365 for Business) can save your business money, and time. When you purchase, for instance, Office 365 for Business, you have a dedicated support team to help you with any issues. Instead of paying a company (such as Canton Computers) to constantly come out for support, or having your I.T. team support these issues when it can be handled remotely can save a lot of time, resources & money.  Most I.T. personnel feel that they are overworked as it is, and more duties are constantly being added onto their plates. SaaS & IaaS are just two examples of ways you can free up your I.T. staff & save money while doing it.

For IaaS, which is a type of cloud computing service which offers essential compute, storage, and networking resources on-demand. This is on a pay-as-you-go basis. If you need a server to run a website, IaaS can do it for cheaper and more redundant than purchasing your own server as you are really only paying for the contents of the server that you will need. There is no wasted cpu performance, hard drive space, etc. wasted. It is ran and managed by Microsoft (Azure), or Amazon (AWS), etc.

There are hundreds of examples of cost savings when going with this newer style of platform, especially for medium to small businesses. So how do you know if this is something that your business should move towards?  The easiest way is to sit down with an I.T. professional (such as the experts at Canton Computers) to go over your current IT Infrastructure, as well as any expansion or ideas you have moving forward. From there, Canton Computers can show you how we can save you money, electricity, resources, and time going with these types of services. Give us a call today! 734-838-9700
