Getting That PC in Shape for the New Year

Picture the New Year. Time to get in shape. Eat clean. Take your vitamins. Work out. And think of the way it will feel when your body is functioning ideally and every task in your life seems to flourish because of it; and then consider how your healthy body will positively affect nearly every aspect of your life and enhance your daily productivity.

Doesn’t it feel good to be a fine-tuned machine? Well your computer thinks so, too.

We all know the importance of physical fitness and most of us have a decent understanding of what it generally takes to get us there. But computers, like humans and our health, are prone to failure due to inattentiveness, procrastination and a perceived general lack urgency. Even though incredibly effective solutions are just a phone call and few hours of work away, many individuals and businesses sit idle up until the moment they are forced to hit the IT panic button. Tough lesson; but guess what. Systems and processes simply don’t fix themselves and the neglect of even a single office computer can threaten their security and take down the entire network. I have seen it time and time again.

Hiring an expert technician to whip your IT systems into shape is like employing Jillian Michaels to oversee your personal fitness regimen, giving you a head start and an edge over your competition. And a talented tech’s results require virtually no effort on your part, are almost immediate and are much more sustainable, even for very complex organizational needs.

This stuff isn’t radical or out of left field. Research suggests that nearly every business today would gain an advantage by fortifying its technology. Streamlined systems and enhanced physical health are the gifts that keep on giving; yielding speedy processes, improved production and increased profit margins. The modest initial investment can yield massive results.
