Business Technology, The Right Way
The first step toward properly running a business is realizing that you aren’t the average consumer. You don’t spend half an hour a day writing checks to pay for your bills – in fact, some of your employees probably do just that all day. The truth of the matter is that everything to a business owner is on a much larger scale than the average consumer – that includes purchasing your technology.
One of the most important parts of running a business is deciding what kinds of technology you’ll be using. In most cases, this means that you’ll be purchasing new computers, and in some cases, mobile devices. The regular consumer would go down to the local electronics store or purchase a computer online in order to find the PC that is picture-perfect for their needs. They might also spend a ton of time researching the latest industry trends in order to make the most intelligent purchase they can.
PCs vs Workstations
You’re not the average Joe, though. You, as a business owner, take a much different approach to things. Rather than purchasing a PC, or personal computer, most business owners would rather purchase what is known as a workstation. Compared to a regular PC, a workstation has more memory, more CPU slots, and much more power. Workstations are designed to take the abuse that the office will exert on it with heavy computing requirements, and their networking capabilities are optimized. The regular consumer rarely needs the advanced capabilities of a workstation when looking for their next home PC, but your business might.
Go Big or Go Home
When it comes to purchasing computers for your business, it might be best to purchase them in bulk. There are several advantages to doing so. You can plan on upgrading and cycling out your old workstations all at once, and you can take advantage of the retailer’s bulk pricing. The discounts of buying in bulk also apply to software in addition to hardware. However, no matter how you look at it, it is still a major expense, and one that could affect your company’s future. Most businesses will plan this expense out carefully by using what is called a technology roadmap, detailing their tech expenses and making sure it fits their budget. It just so happens that making technology roadmaps is just the sort of thing that Protek can help you with, too!
