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 organsations 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.

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.

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? The below are theoretical costs:

£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.
