Three Things You Might Fear as a Business Owner
What Happens If My System Crashes?
All mechanical devices will eventually fail, but there is no way to tell exactly when that might happen. Unfortunately, these things tend to happen when you or your company can least afford the time or cost. If your company’s PCs or system crashes, your business can grind to a halt, losing you time and money. Issues like this can even put your company’s future at risk!
PC or system failure can be caused by many different issues. These include hardware failure, file corruption, operating system failure, accidental deletion by a user, or loss due to theft or destruction of your equipment. Regaining data from a failed hard drive is a long and costly process, particularly when compared to simply pulling that data from a back-up. Data recovery firms can charge over $100 per hour. Unfortunately, these expensive data recovery efforts don’t cannot guarantee that you will be able to recover all or any of your data.
Viruses are often the culprit in crashes. Each week new viruses spread by email attachments (such as the Melissa virus) threaten to corrupt their unsuspecting victims’ files or reformat their hard drives.
At the same time, normal operation of your computer can make it susceptible to crashes. Registry errors and other redundant entries created by the Windows OS or other software can accumulate and cause big problems as time goes on. The Windows operating system communicates with its registry dozens of times every second and broken registry keys can noticeably slow your computers. Deleted programs often leave Windows registry keys and files behind. These are all potential problems blocking your computers from running in top form! Request a quote online today!
If one key computer crashes, or worse yet, your whole system crashes, you need to it back and in good form quickly. However, do you know how to fix it? Do you know who would fix it? Do you know when they could fix it? Do you know how much it would cost?

What If I Lose All of My Data and Cannot Recover It?
If your data is gone how will you replace it? Do you have copies of all of your important files? What if your business’s data was on a laptop and it was lost or stolen? Unfortunately, if any of these things happen and your business is not prepared ahead of time you might just be out of luck.

Could These Problems Force Me to Close Up My Business?
The loss of data can interrupt the flow of your company and how you conduct your business. The loss of a document is an inconvenience and will result in lost productivity. However, if you lose something as important as your entire customer database your entire business’s well being could be in serious jeopardy!
For many businesses there is a liability associated with downtime. This is addition to potential lost sales and lowered employee productivity. Important client information such as contacts, preferences and orders can be lost completely. How would you explain to your customers that you lost their information and can not recover it? In the end, customers do not care how or why such a thing might have happened. They just care that it did happen and will hold you and your company responsible.
Estimates suggest that 80% of small businesses that suffer a serious computer failure cease running within two years. Don’t let yours be one of them! Request a quote online today!
Controlling Your IT Costs
Most data back-ups use a tape drive to store important data. Unfortunately, such products and services cost a fortune! An alternative is to store your data backup on another computer on your network or backing it up on a CD, DVD or portable disk. However, that’s more work for another employee to be responsible for at your company
Many companies have their own IT departments, but very few small to mid-sized businesses can afford the luxury of hiring, training, supervising and paying IT personnel. In some cases, this may be a problem even if a single additional person is necessary. Unfortunately, if you have just a one person IT department it is impossible for he or she to be available around the clock!
Using outside professionals can be expensive no matter what method you utilize. You could:
- Have a representative come to your place of business
- Bring your computer to a repair facility
- Speak with a representative to fix your system over the phone
With these methods repair costs can run over hundreds of dollars for each computer. However, with CherryOne Tech Support, a comprably small monthly fee can protect your company’s PCs and system! 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
