The Fresh Managed IT team works with owners and managers of small businesses to help mitigate technology threats and reduce overall downtime.
Ultimately, our managed IT services help hardworking small business owners like you protect your bottom line.
Common IT Problems that Small Businesses Face
Many potential IT issues can threaten small businesses. With the rapid rate of technology growth, this list of threats grows longer almost daily. Most small businesses simply cannot accommodate an in-house IT department, and that’s where an MSP like Fresh Managed IT can help.
We familiarize ourselves with the common issues small businesses face and have the tools and experience to help your business thrive, even when IT issues arise. Below, we list some of the most common issues and threats we see in small businesses.
Small businesses are susceptible to hacking, viruses, and other cybersecurity threats. This could result from a lack of funding for IT security or a lack of awareness on effective IT procedures.
Lack of Strategic Planning
It is common for small businesses to lack IT strategy in their business plans. But when business booms and IT infrastructure hasn’t grown alongside it, that’s when problems tend to occur.
You might lose files because of accidental deletion, server crashes, or a power outage. Whatever the cause of your lost data, you need to have a backup and disaster recovery solution in place. Unfortunately, many small businesses don’t have these strategies in place. Fresh Managed can help your business prepare for these critical events with backups and contingency plans.
Every small business should invest in their technology. Yet many business owners view technology as an expense rather than an investment, and in the long run, this mistake can cost even more. Not upgrading hardware when it becomes outdated can lead to server crashes, integration issues, frustrated employees, and lost data.
