Many businesses and other organizations spend a lot of money setting up and maintaining their computer systems and business networks. Spending large amounts of money on such infrastructure can sometimes have a huge negative impact on the amount of capital they have available to spend on other areas of their organization.

But did you know that you could save a whole bunch of cash on your companyâs IT by following some simple top tips? Hereâs how!


Itâs OK to future-proof your IT, but donât go overboard


The first thing you should do is determine how many people are going to need a computer, or access to your network.


Many companies needlessly overspend thousands of dollars on bespoke network and IT infrastructure in general which could support thousands of users, yet in reality they only have about 10 users and those users donât really do much apart from using online software.


Keep it simple


Following on from the above point, you should stick to simple solutions for your companyâs IT equipment and infrastructure in general.


If you only have a small number of staff but you want them to be able to save and retrieve files locally from a central location, consider investing in a large-capacity NAS (Network Attached Storage) device which might only cost you a couple of hundred bucks, rather than a dedicated Windows Small Business Server costing you several thousand dollars!


There are also a number of affordable (and often free) cloud-based storage solutions which can enable remote workers to be able to access important documents and files, regardless of whether they are at work, at home, or on-site visiting a client.


The beauty about cloud-based storage solutions is that you can sync your files up from any computer that you use regularly, so if you make changes to some files on Monday evening at home, for example, your PC at work will sync those changes on Tuesday morning when you are next there.


Assign systems to users based on their requirements


Although it can be easier to simply give everyone the same specification of computer, the truth is all of your users will have different requirements based on their day-to-day work. For example, some users might only need to run some basic office software, while others might require a mid-range system to run some image editing software.


By assigning systems to users based on their needs, you will find that you spend considerably less money on your companyâs IT; computer systems are one of the biggest expenses when it comes to IT expenditure.


Outsource your IT support


Finally, instead of having your own dedicated IT support team in-house, you should outsource your IT support requirements. Why? Because companies that offer this service can provide the same (if not better) level of support for your users for a fraction of the cost!


When it comes to managing your business IT network, outsourced IT support companies will have no trouble being your go-to guys when you need âem, and many can even provide 24/7 support.
