Why Local IT Support in Seattle Should Be Part of Your Business Strategy

Hooray! It’s here! One of the best seasons of the year! You probably love the same end-of-the-year things we do: an entire season filled with delicious food and great wine, warm sweaters, cozy fireplaces, and quality time spent with friends and family.

However, as a business owner, you know those are only half the things to love about the end of the year. In your position, this is also a great time to think deeply about your business and strategize for even better outcomes next year.

Think about it. Right now, all of 2019 is ahead of you. All the customers you’re soon to meet, all the contracts you’re soon to sign, all the fascinating twists and turns, and unexpected opportunities are ahead of you – in short, all the things that make running a business a constant adventure are coming up soon.

Which is great… except when it isn’t.

After all, true adventures contain conflict and business conflict is a drag, at best, and a disaster, at worst.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to set yourself up for less conflict and more success in the new year: hire local IT support in Seattle.


IT Problems Are Big Problems

We run a small business ourselves, so we’re not going to pretend that everything in the business world is wonderful all the time. Sometimes you run into clients who are a pain in the neck and sometimes everything goes sideways all at once and you find yourself working around the clock just to keep things moving. These things are temporary hassles and they do pass, thankfully.

However, there is one thing that doesn’t necessarily pass: IT issues. If you experience a malfunctioning server that corrupts your files, network access that cuts in and out, or a cyberattack, your business may lose critical data, be unable to meet deadlines, or be on the hook for non-compliance fines from regulatory agencies.

IT problems are big problems.

Unfortunately, they’re problems we need to deal with because, these days, you can’t run a business without highly functioning technology.


How to Fix IT Problems, Big and Small

Think of a few of the tech issues you faced in 2018. Perhaps your email refused to refresh for a few days on a specific computer. Perhaps your computer crashed late at night and lost the massive proposal you were working on last minute. Maybe you simply clicked a link in a weird-looking email and immediately thought, Did I just download ransomware?

In each of these cases, it would have helped to have someone you could call. Someone who would come right over to your offices, fix your computer, and find your files. Maybe you had someone you could call, like a nephew, an in-law, or a tiny break/fix IT support team, but people like that have limited availability. They often can’t come when you need them to, and they certainly can’t fix anything instantly and remotely.

For those types of services, you need local IT support in Seattle.


IT Support That’s Hands-On or Hands-Off, It’s Entirely Your Call

Your business strategy is entirely unique and could be based on a range of objectives.

  • If you’re looking for an outsourced IT helping hand on demand, you’ll want to work with a proven, local company that treats your business like their own and who will roll up their sleeves and get to work on solving your IT issues.
  • If you don’t have the money to hire an IT department (or even a full-time IT tech), yet you want to work with someone who takes the time to learn all the ins and outs of your systems, you’ll want to make sure your money gets the very best service from an internationally recognized, award-winning IT support provider.
  • If you already have an IT department(or at least one IT person), you’ll already have some of your IT tasks taken care of. In that case, you’ll want to work with a company that will come and assist your IT person on-site when needed, and quietly protect your network security the rest of the time by installing updates and patches, and monitoring security while your IT person sleeps.

When you work with Interplay, the longest-standing local IT support in Seattle, you’ll get exactly the amount of IT attention you want because you know that your IT partner will always be watching out for you in the background and will be ready to reach out and help whenever you like.
