Choose carefully as you would a
Banker, Accountant, or Attorney
We recommend using the same level of care when choosing a Technology Partner as you would in choosing a bank, insurance company, accountant, or attorney, given the mission-critical nature your data.
Many start-ups use the "do-it-yourself" approach but quickly find that valuable time needed to advance business objectives is wasted on computer repairs and service. The "resident guru" can no-longer accomplish their "real job" tasks in a timely manner and may lack appropriate skills. And the "good buddy next door" may not be there when needed. Besides, there is a major difference between home computing and business processes. And what if there is a mistake? Choose a Technology Partner you can trust.
Also to be considered is the difference between home computers / networks and business systems. Business systems should use more resilient memory, drives, and components to meet mission-critical demands. You should find more consistency in Business system as they are manufactured and packaged to a higher standard. Use your trusted Technology Partner to assist in recommending hardware, software, peripherals, and their suppliers.
