The Real Cost of Internet Outages
We understand that business owners and managers are always looking to reduce costs. It’s smart business. However, today almost every business is dependent on the Internet, so we are baffled when a company tries to save $50 a month on internet and telephone services and then has to deal with Internet outages on a monthly or sometimes weekly basis.
According to Gartner, during network downtime, it’s estimated that a business loses hundreds or even thousands of dollars every minute. A significant toll on any business.
During periods of IT downtime, employees are unable to perform their tasks or it forces employees to spend valuable time redoing their work.
Customers expect results quickly, and if they can’t connect with you, they will move on with one click.
Recovery costs to fix downtime issues are expensive, especially the hefty fees for recovering lost data.
Intangible costs can damage a business the most in the long run, and they occur when a business’ reputation is damaged by downtime.
So, the bottom line is spending an extra $50 or even $100 a month is an excellent investment in securing your company’s functionality and reputation.
