Setting Up IT for Your Small (and Growing) Business
Whether in the midst of reopening and have come to terms with the fact that it’s time to tighten up the ship with respect to tech, or you’re starting a new business altogether, you are tasked with establishing your IT infrastructure. As a small business you have a lot to focus on when it comes to managing your product offering, customer service, marketing, and more. The last thing you want to concentrate on is IT – something that is likely out of your realm. Fret not, because SAV Technology will get you up and running to ensure a secure, efficient, and scalable tech environment.
5 Ways SAV Technology Will Set Up More Efficient IT Infrastructure for Your Business
1. We Will Set Up Your Office, Shop, or Workspace
As a part of our IT project services we will dive into infrastructure planning and ensure it works with your physical environment. We will integrate hardware into your establishment including on-premesis servers, staff computers (workstations, laptops, and tablets) and web-enabled phone systems in addition to the provision of internet-of-things (IoT) devices to help operations run more smoothly. From cables, cords, and surge protectors to networking components and racking we cover all bases.
2. We Will Set Up Your Productivity Software
Choosing the right Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for your business needs is critical to productivity. We have partnerships with Microsoft (MS Office 365) and Google (G-Suite) but have vast expertise with numerous business applications and can work with practically any other SaaS you are familiar with.
3. We Will Set Up Your Cloud Infrastructure
This carries over from the productivity solutions addressed above. Even if you plan on maintaining an on-premesis server you need to hedge all forms of risk (more on this below) to your operations by leveraging cloud computing capabilities. Cloud computing provides for cost-efficient and effective data backup and disaster recovery, remote working capability, and scalability that traditional IT on-premesis models could never achieve.
4. We Will Secure Your Business Environment from Top to Bottom
Cyber security is the top IT concern in 2020 for SMBs and large enterprises alike, but it’s small businesses that need to be especially mindful. CNBC reports that 43% of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses. More concerning, is that only 14% are prepared to defend themselves against advanced forms of malware and phishing campaigns. The cost of falling victim to a cyberattack averages $200,000. Can you afford that kind of loss? Certainly not, which is why approximately 60% of small businesses go out of business within 6-months of being hacked. As you can see, security is the most critical step in setting up IT infrastructure. The good news, is the IT security is the foundation of SAV Technology’s Managed Services. Not only do we provide for advanced threat (malware, phishing schemes, etc.) prevention and aforementioned data backup and disaster recovery, we will train your staff on how to be more self-sufficient when it comes to identifying potential attacks. In addition, we will help you abide by data privacy compliance mandates as dictated by PIPEDA (Canada), GDPR (EU), and state by state legislation (USA). No security stone goes unturned when working with SAV Technology.
5. We Will Prepare You to Grow
You may be setting up or running a small business but you have big goals which means you need IT infrastructure for today and tomorrow. It must be scalable, which is where once again we draw your attention to our cloud services. Through the cloud you gain the only truly scalable small business productivity solution that grows as you need it. SAV Technology will set up the IT infrastructure required to quickly expand capacity exactly when you need in the most cost efficient manner possible.
