The amount of bad tech that I see out there is staggering.
I get a sick feeling in my stomach when I walk into a potential client's computer room work and see things that well - really shouldn't be there.
At the same time - It's staggering when you review the dollars spent on bad tech.
I literally I see companies paying double and triple over MSRP for equipment they’ve purchased. The amount of highway robbery that is going on is very disheartening.
Not only are companies not getting the correct tech they need - they are also being overcharged - and that’s just plain wrong!
If your company has been hit by an opportunistic IT company. I feel for you. I really do.
I understand why you might feel gun shy about spending money to replace something you bought that you didn’t need.
This is something I deal with on a very regular basis with new clients. In many cases we just identify the pain and make a plan to replace it in the future.
I guess the main point of this all is that I just want you to know that it's going to be okay.
I don't want you think that all tech is bad and I don't want you to be shell-shocked about the dollars you may be called upon to spend on your tech.
That's why it's really important to partner with the right IT company.
If you feel you're in this place. Where you have been taken advantage of by opportunistic IT.
It may be time to audit the guys you've got. Many companies can provide an audit of your environment and let you know if you have the correct equipment and it's configured correctly.
You don't have to buy any other services from them. The goal is know what you have and what you're dealing with.
And again. I feel bad if this has happened to you. Shoot me an email if you need some help or want to run something by me. I'm always here to help.
