“The investment in a business' technology upgrade not only increases productivity but also decreases costs.”
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 28, 2012
SA IT Services, a recognized leader in outsourced IT support and services, today released their latest white paper entitled, “Top 4 Reasons to Consider a Technology Upgrade for Your Business.” The report compiles recent research on the advantages, disadvantages and cost implications for companies considering upgrading their office technology.
“Top 4 Reasons to Consider a Technology Upgrade for Your Business,” highlights the fact that most companies operate with outdated office technology. Research shows that companies typically believe that their existing technology is adequate. However, studies show that most company’s office technology is outdated and upgrading would create significant productivity gains. According to research by Intel, office computers older than four years create twice the number of help desk calls and twice as much downtime as computers three years old or less. The research concludes that adhering to a three-year technology upgrade cycle provides the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO).
“The research confirms what we see every day through our clients,” says SA IT Services Chief Operating Officer, Chris Combs. “The investment in a business' technology upgrade not only increases productivity but also decreases costs.”
However, often great cost savings can be realized by not upgrading technology but by better aligning IT goals with the broader goals of the organization. The Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) and Cisco Systems studied companies who actively aligned their IT and business goals. 43% of companies reported they recognized cost savings even before implementing new technology.
“Goal alignment is not easy,” says SA IT Services Chief Information Officer, Robert Hosea. “IT often has different priorities than other areas of the organization. Yet herein lies the opportunity. Identifying the misalignments and creating a cohesive strategy around technology is the place to start before investing in equipment and software.”
