5 Technology Pain Points You’ll Need to Confront

5 Technology Pain Points You’ll Need to Confront

Business doesn’t always go the way you want it to, so many will turn to technology. Unfortunately, without the right strategies in place, organizations can run into problems integrating the right technology. This month, we take a look at some of the biggest IT pain points your business can face. 

Lack of Available Capital for IT 

One major problem that organizations frequently run into is having a lack of available capital to make positive changes to their business. With IT being relatively expensive, small businesses can have problems keeping up with larger companies. If you don’t prioritize frequent IT improvements, you could run into situations where you are significantly lagging behind. 

Holes in Your IT Support

Smaller businesses may lack the dedicated IT support needed to quickly manage IT problems. This can result in increased downtime that isn’t good for any organization. What’s more, some organizations leave it to untrained and unskilled employees to troubleshoot technology problems, further taking away their focus from the goals of the business. 

Issues with Security and Privacy of Data

Hackers don’t care what size your business is. Small businesses are increasingly being attacked because scammers and hackers find them to be low-hanging fruit to pick from. Data breaches, malware, and other IT problems don’t just hinder productivity, they can carry a vast array of problematic situations for your business. 

Inefficient and Disconnected Systems

Another issue that small businesses often run into is that they don’t have much in the way of integration between their mission critical applications. This can lead to inefficiency and redundancy of tasks, which is a major problem for your business’ bottom line. 

Employees Don’t Have the Technology They Need

Finally, businesses need to be able to scale as needed. Some projects require new tools and if you can’t get your employees the tools they need to be successful, they will take more time and can even become disgruntled. It’s important that your organization has the technology your employees need to remain productive and keep your business running efficiently.

Technology is a huge benefit to businesses, but it can come with some major pain points. One great solution for this problem is getting the experienced perspective of IT professionals. At Preferred, our technicians work day in and day out with businesses to find them the specific tools and support they need to be able to shift focus onto revenue growth.
