LAPTOP UPGRADES?

One of the main complaints from computer users is that their computer or laptop is slow. Over the years it was common to replace equipment when it was slow, but now there is another option. Solid State Drives and Memory upgrades in computers and laptops make a huge improvement on performance and will often out perform new machines.

TO UPGRADE OR REFRESH?

 Your computers and servers are some of the most important equipment in your business. They hold important data and manage your day to day services. This is why it’s important to keep your machines in top condition. An IT Refresh is usually scheduled at pre-determined dates from when the equipment was originally purchased. Typically, corporate organisations replace computers every 3 / 4 years and server equipment every 5 – 6 years. Experience has shown that small business’s prefer to maintain their equipment until hardware failure or updated software is sluggish.

ARE SLOW COMPUTERS IMPACTING YOUR BUSINESS?

 Staff that rely on their computers to do their work will always benefit by having devices that are reasonably well spec’ed. We have found that a lot of SME’s will generally look at the cost of equipment above anything else, they might not see the benefit of spending an extra £100 on a system to increase speeds.

At Flyford Connect we understand costs are important, but lets think about it another way. How much money can be saved by spending a little more on equipment or replacing older hardware?

Here are some theoretical costs to demonstrate just how much outdated equipment could be costing your business:

£8.20 Per Hour to pay staff member
260 Days per year working

We all know how frustrating it is to have a slower computer, a few seconds waiting for the computer here and there all add up

5 minutes per day wasted – Compared to a faster machine

So using this theory, the slower computer is costing £176.80 per year when compared to a faster / new machine.

Working out the cost of slower computers will be different in your business, but its good to look at buying equipment from a different perspective.

MINTUES WASTED PER YEAR

What Our Customer's Say

We contacted Phil at Flyford Connect when we were experiencing major problems with our network system.

His response and efficient manner of dealing with the issues was first class. Based on this, we have contracted Flyford Connect to manage all our IT requirements. We are already 5 months into our first years contract and the service and customer-focused delivery is excellent.

The best part for me is that the continual problems we had with our system have gone and what was once a problem constantly raised at our weekly meetings, very rarely gets a mention now.

Phil was our main point of contact at Flyford Connect who we contacted when we were experiencing problems with our backup servers.

He is very professional and obviously knowledgeable in this specialist field, as he was able to diagnose the situation and suggest a workable solution almost immediately. Since helping us we haven’t had a single issue with our backup servers, therefore I would highly recommend Flyford Connect.
