In a bind? Need a new server before your current one goes kaput? Check out or tips for paying for the technology that keeps your business in motion. With budgets growing ever smaller and technology needs rising, how do you purchase needed equipment and service without breaking the bank? Think smart.

  • Most larger hardware purchases can be purchased with a lease, giving you a flat monthly payment instead of a large bill, upfront.
  • Have your technician evaluate your network. What do you absolutely need at the moment, and what can wait for better cash flow?
  • Always keep up with repairs and upgrades. Broken or problem equipment only leads to less productivity from your employees. Staying up-to-date with maintenance and repairs avoids that downtime.
  • Purchasing tech time up-front. Some companies offer the option of purchasing “block time” in lieu of the usual break-fix scenario. By purchasing hours in bulk, you can receive discounts off of the hourly rate. Travel fees are usually not charged when you sign up for block time.
