Businesses, especially small ones can benefit from technology use in many ways. But, too much technology can lead to rise in costs, when businesses not only bring in solutions they need but also others that they simply want. Today, we’re going to look at how you can implement technology in a way that brings a good return on investment and doesn’t waste your technology budget.

Managed IT Services

Managed IT is a great choice for small and medium-sized businesses looking for the best value. Also known as MSPs, managed server providers are usually charged on a predictable and scaled monthly fee. They also offer access to vendors and make sure that your technology solutions are functioning correctly before any issues can arise.

With an MSP, technicians can have their hands on your technology on-site and remotely. With all of the downfalls, an MSP can help you avoid, the return on investment will be almost immediate. They will help you avoid money-wasting downtime and help you avoid big threats that would cost your company way more money than you are spending on their services. 

Hybrid Cloud

For businesses with specific security and accessibility needs, hybrid cloud platforms are great for leverage. While having a private cloud can be very costly, hybrid clouds are the perfect in-between. A hybrid cloud solution offers privacy with accessibility and will help your productivity soar, increasing profit and revenue. 

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

While you will have a network set up in your office, your employees might be connected to it with their personal devices. You will need a solution to ensure security is still high and ready to go, even with different devices all mingling together on your network connection. A BYOD policy can make sure your employees are not putting your network at risk and will cut your security costs because threats will have a harder time getting in in the first place. With customers using your network as well, you should have permissions and access control set up so they can’t get into any sensitive data and can only use your network as a Wi-Fi connection as it is meant to be used. 

New technology can have hefty expenses, but not when they are done right. MyTek is here to walk you through the best IT solutions for small businesses that will save your money and will have the best return of investment for your specific company with specific needs and wants.
