In sales, price-point and cost-related concerns area always a major factor when it comes to decision making. IT Services and Technology Services in general are one of the more difficult items or services to sell in general, and this can be true for a variety of reasons. When it comes to price surrounding IT Services and IT Support services, it can be sometimes difficult to associate a tangible and /or identifiable value from the service itself. When technical understanding and comprehension is limited, it becomes even more difficult to place a value on the service- because you don’t know it!
Sometimes bad spending habits surrounding technology products and services are on account throwing good money after bad. An example of this would be a company who spent money on “IT Service Time” to remedy user-issues such as viruses or slow pc’s.
Issues like this are oftentimes due to ineffective technical process management at the macro-level in your organization. In the case of computer viruses on a user pc, this kind of issue could have been prevented if user policy access control settings were configured appropriately on your business network or domain.
This issue could have been prevented if the proper actions were taken in the first place, when the network was set up. Tech Team Members should be working in alignment with the C-Level personnel within the business. This is the reason why large enterprises have a “C” Level for IT related concerns.-Information, “C” Level for Technology and Security as well. (CTO, CISO AND CTO). There are numerous examples of other issues in tech which could have been prevented if they were configured appropriately in the first place. Business data would be much more secure with an appropriate configuration. Additionally, the business in question would meet mandatory compliance regulations.
It is important to find a service provider that you can rely on, to build a relationship over time. This service provider may need to perform additional services later. While costs should be a factor in a customer decision on choice of service providers, the lower price option will usually prove to be less-than-reliable for long term needs.
Many clients have complained about pesky hourly fees. Such as the computer consultant who will try to spend that extra 15-30 minutes onsite, just to charge an extra fee. Independent contractors may charge reasonable hourly rates in some cases. When they rely on service-hours to make a living, their goal is to bill as many as possible.
In the case of independent IT contractors, many of these technicians take as much work as they can possibly get. They may not have a specialized technical category of focus, they become a Jack-of-All-Tech-Trades and a Master of None. The result is- it may take significantly longer to fix the same type of issue that a specialized technician would.
