Avoid Employee Downtime


As a construction company, you know that deadlines are important. To stay on schedule it's important to avoid as much downtime as possible. Things like slow communication with an IT company, old hardware, and unreliable backups devices can lead to long downtimes. It's best to have an IT company that can focus on your computer devices and the best procedures checklist so that you can do what you do best: construction.

Downtime doesn't just mean that deadlines need to be extended, it also means you are paying for employees to wait around. If your employee needs help with their computer but it takes a technician hours to get to it, then you are paying your employee to sit around until the problem is fixed. These unexpected costs can be avoided with a Managed Service Provider.

Best IT Practices for Construction


In a recent analysis by the 2014 Gartner's Analysis, downtime can cost companies $5,600 per minute and up to $300,000 per hour in web application downtime. These costly incidents seem to be on the rise, but there are some precautions you can take to safeguard your data:

  • Work with an outsourced IT company that has experience working with construction companies.
  • Upgrade hardware with quality products that are strong and last long. Even if it is more expensive.
  • Update software and hardware when available and have regular backups.
  • Establish a system technology security maintenance and protocol.
  • Procedures for backup and disaster recovery.
  • A true business continuity solution will protect data on-premises and in the cloud.
