Whether you run a small retail business, a mid-sized professional services firm or a national manufacturing enterprise, it’s likely that you rely very heavily on your information technology (IT) systems.
From a desktop computer to complex industry software, IT provides the foundation from which your business is able to run and serve its customers.
In recent years, IT use in businesses has grown exponentially to include:
- collaborative virtual workspaces
- video conferencing solutions
- purpose-built applications
- data centres
- cloud storage
- and much more
Most modern businesses could not survive an hour without their IT systems…let alone having to endure an outage lasting a day or more!
Complexity demands expertise
IT is complex by nature. It speaks its own language, and can sometimes act in ways that baffle even the most tech-oriented minds.
Attempting to deal with IT without understanding it is sort of like trying to service your car when you’ve never looked under the hood before. While you may get some things right, you could end up causing other issues that have serious consequences.
No matter how user friendly new software and applications claim to be, the ability for these to run depends entirely on the capabilities of your underlying IT system. In today’s day and age, hackers will also seek to exploit any possible vulnerabilities. This means that a simple oversight or mistake when installing or maintaining software could leave your entire IT environment open to an attack.
For these and many other reasons, it’s worth prioritising IT professionals as a critical source of support for your business.
How IT professionals support your business
Some IT businesses focus on specific areas of IT. They may only provide a narrow service such as basic IT support, or cybersecurity, or networking expertise.
While we did start small at Empreus IT, our reputation for outstanding service saw us grow organically and very quickly as our valued clients began requesting any and all IT services from us. They didn’t want to rely on multiple providers for internet, hardware and software, data centre management, communications, and so on. They wanted us to manage it all.
So, we do! We are home to a highly qualified team of IT experts who provide 100% local and end-to-end IT services including:
- Managed IT services
- Your IT as-a-service
- IT security
- Cloud services
- Data centre services
- Communication (internet, VoIP, video conferencing)
- Earth-friendly IT disposal
Our services span installations through to 24/7 monitoring, upgrades and patching, backup and disaster recovery, and more.
Partnering with Empreus IT
The first thing our clients say they love about working with us is peace of mind. They can focus on their business while we consistently monitor their systems, and we’re only ever a phone call away if an IT issue arises in their office or remotely.
The second is convenience. With all the IT services they need bundled into a simple monthly payment, they can easily budget for IT and save admin time by not having to pay multiple providers (including software providers where the licensing costs are added to our managed services agreement).
Lastly, our clients enjoy the advantages of our “always proactive” approach to IT – keeping them up to date with the latest knowledge and advice to maximise efficiency and security across their IT environment.
