Why SEO companies need IT support

As a company that obviously works with computers all day long, we know how important it is that everything works smoothly. We posted recently about our troubles with our VoIP phone system, and we wouldn’t want the same issues with our internet, hardware or software. We spent all day on the internet conducting research and working on websites for our clients, so to lose access to everything would be a disaster!

That’s why we think it is so important to get yourself acquainted with an IT support company such as our friends at Pronetic who will be able to look after your computer-related matters, meaning you can concentrate on making your own business a success. Even though most of us are pretty techy at Artemis (it goes with the territory of the job), there are still things that even we don’t know, so a little help can go a long way. Pronetic can help businesses out with everything from cloud storage to internet connections and anti-virus software for a comprehensive service which will cover all aspects of your company’s technology needs.

Even if you consider yourself relatively computer-savvy, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to fix everything that happens. Even if you know how, you’ll still have other work to get on with, so it can be easier to leave this to someone else who can get it sorted quickly. That, or while you may know what the problem is, you might not know exactly how to fix it, and your attempts to put it right could end up making the problem worse.

On the other end of the scale, there are those who would admit that they are total technological beginners. There is no shame in that at all, but it does mean that computer issues can seriously slow down the way your business operates. If it is going to take you half a day to set up a working internet connection or an hour to install a piece of software, you might be better off getting your IT support team to help you out.

One other area in which companies like Pronetic can be a godsend is in the small matter of backing up everything you do. As we know only too well at Artemis, we probably have millions of pieces of data that are meticulously recorded and stored on our system, and these are essential so that we know what we’re doing and have previously done for all of our clients. The vast majority of other businesses will have huge amounts of data in their systems, and this should be backed up regularly to make sure you always have a copy if anything goes wrong. If that seems too daunting, again, leave it to your IT support company.

No matter how reliable you believe your computer network to be, you can’t take anything for granted in the world of technology, so having an expert on hand at all times can be reassuring when a technological disaster seems to be looming.
