But, is it really that hard to switch IT companies? Is it worth the risk? Which one is better; between staying with an incompetent IT supplier that limits your growth and risking to transition to better service provision? Of course, you must be thinking, “what if the new support firm turns out to be even worse.”
Here is the thing: switching IT companies can be tricky, but it can also be easier than you think.
The trick lies in identifying the potential threats as you transition and proactively preparing to avert them. We are going to look at some of the major risks, and guide you on how well to stave them off. At the end of the read, you will understand that migrating from one IT company to the other is not as hard as you’ve been made to believe.
Veltec Networks is the leading provider of IT support in The Bay Area. We have specialized in hyper-professional complete IT management around San Jose since 2007.
Here are some common threats that you are likely to encounter during the transition…
Ending Up With The Wrong Service Provider
It can be daunting to weather the risks of transitioning only to end up with a support company whose performance is even more miserable. Although this is not a common phenomenon, it could result from failure to do proper background checks on the prospects.
You May Experience Loss Of Data
This is one of the greatest fears for most business owners or leaders. Data has grown over the years to become every organization’s most valuable asset. Aside from accidental deletions, your files are vulnerable to external interference as you are transitioning. If you are not hacked, it may be one transfiguration error that locks you out of your networks.
Creepy Former Service Providers
Again, this is not prevalent, but you cannot miss a few support companies that would want to frustrate you. There have been extreme circumstances where rogue suppliers withhold or completely obliterate pieces of information to distract clients from switching. Another infamous tactic is invoking stern exit clauses, such as demanding you to settle hefty breaking fees.
Extended Network Downtime
The metrics for measuring productivity have been leaning more on the amount of production time, in the recent past. Almost every firm has the latest technology and knowledgeable technicians. What gives you a competitive edge is the time you spend in actual production. Besides, downtimes are very costly. The Ponomon Institute quantifies an average damage cost of $7900/minute of network downtime.
It is for these reasons that executives are wary of even the slightest snarl-up in operations. If not well planned and precisely executed, switching of IT companies can breed unnecessary protected downtimes.
