Should Break-fix Customers Change their Expectations for IT Services in Los Angeles?
I was surprised the other day when I spoke with a local business that was experiencing downtime as a result of server failure. I assumed that I had a hot prospect on my hands that would be disgruntled by having to lose business while waiting for their IT Services provider to come to the rescue of their Los Angeles based business. However, I was surprised when the business owner told me that they were perfectly happy with their current IT company. It took a minute for me to realize that this business owner was still in the custom of waiting for their computer systems to experience a problem and then wait for their break-fix IT company to save the day. This entrepreneur was used to waiting and thought it was just part of normal business routine.
This experience caused me to wonder how many other companies still believe that it’s normal to experience downtime when their network malfunctions and are all too happy to wait for a tech to show up and save the day.
The truth is that today with the current RMM (remote management monitoring) tools the idea of experiencing run-of-the-mill IT outages is a thing of the past. Every aspect of a computer network and in particular endpoints can be monitored and can trigger an alarm when possible threats are detected. When leading indicator problems are detected they can be proactively corrected before triggering a major server failure.
No business should be waiting for their computer equipment to breakdown before calling a repair man, as this concept is antiquated. If your business in Los Angeles is still operating with the break-fix model then it’s time to make a change.
