IT consultancy in London: we can help your business
Why is IT consultancy so important?
Technology is such an essential part of every modern business that it is difficult to imagine most workplaces without the presence of computer equipment.
Even a company which is not primarily focused on digital, such as a retailer, is still dependent on computers to carry out a range of different jobs in the workplace, from administration tasks such as scheduling to the storing and processing of clients’ data to taking stock.
Despite the omnipresence of computers in the workplace, it is often difficult to know how you can best use technology to achieve your business objectives with the budget at your disposal. This is especially true if:
- Your business is an SME
- The focus of your business is not related to technology
If your business falls into both of the above categories, it is unlikely that you employ a full time IT professional, and doing so may seem like an expense that you can’t justify and that your company simply cannot afford.
Nonetheless, running dated computer hardware without sufficient virus or malware protection is extremely unwise, as the delays this causes end up ultimately costing your company money. In the event of a security breach by a hacker or virus, your business could even be legally compromised.
Don’t let this happen to your company. Consider outsourcing your IT support.
IT consultancy services: the essentials
Here are some IT consultancy essentials to safeguard your business’s technology:
- Consider investing in a proactive IT support service to keep your systems running smoothly. This involves 24/7 monitoring of your systems by experts for any malware, completing any necessary software updates and checking for hardware aging and wear and tear. Prevention is better than cure – for a fixed fee, you can guarantee streamlined system function
- Ensure that your business has up to date anti spam filters and antivirus software in place to guard against cyber attacks that may cripple your system, severely hindering your productivity and costing money
- If you store customer and employee data, it is vital that you are GDPR compliant. Businesses that take liberties with personal data face high penalties, with an upper limit of 4% of your annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher. Consider becoming Cyber Essentials accredited to obtain a government official certification proving your compliance
