There are a few things you might want to consider when evaluating your IT support solution in ’09:
1. Outsourced, contracted IT Support can greatly reduce the expense associated with an “In-house” IT department. Even if you’re not considering doing away with your IT department, you can add additional support, thru contracted service, at the fraction of a new technician’s salary.
AktiveNet™ is a contracted service agreement offered by Kyvon that can fully support your IT needs, or partially support your current IT department. It is customizable to meet your specific needs!
2. Co-location at a data center can insure proper backup and necessary security to your network and data.
Mark Locheed, Kyvon’s President and Head Technician, understands the need for 100% “uptime”. He is renowned for despising “downtime” and works incessantly to insure intricate networks at his data center remain “up and running” for his clients.
3. Websites are quickly becoming the premier method for marketing a business. The days of Yellow Page ads absorbing 80% of your advertising budget are nearing their end.
The initial upfront cost for designing a website is easily recouped in the following months by lower hosting rates of just dollars per month, and the added benefit of e-commerce (actually getting your customers to take action at the point of advertisement) makes web hosting a more economical choice when promoting your business. With fuel prices in constant flux it is reassuring your client can not only find your business from home, but also purchase thru the website!
Not to mention, web advertising is quickly establishing itself as the most “traceable” form of advertising. Determining not only number of impressions, click and visits, but also determining consumer’s behaviors is putting web ads far above radio, TV and billboards. You can begin to study behaviors and trends thru traceable actions taken by your visitors helping to determine where best to spend advertising dollars!
