What to look for when choosing your IT Support company…… Is a one man band right for you?

We see it again and again, businesses tire of the poor levels of support provided by “one man bands”.
As a business dependant on your computer systems, you need to ensure that your IT Services provider will be there when you need them. They must respond quickly to your support needs, they must have the broad range of skills needed to support your systems, they should have the resources available to carry out installation and project work within a reasonable time frame; and they should have the skills to advise you on the latest technologies to help you drive your business forward.

So What Should I Do?

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to spot a one man band until it is too late. It is very easy these days to create a professional slick website and set up business social media accounts. By referring to yourself as “we”, rather than “I” and by using a telephone answering service, it is very easy for one man bands to pass themselves off as a much larger company.

Fortunately by exercising a little diligence when choosing your next IT Service Provider you can make sure that you do not fall foul of these problems.

  • Look for their contact details and location, check it out on Google Maps; is it an office building, or are they working out of their house?
  • A quick company check http://companycheck.co.uk/ on the owner or director may reveal any previous businesses which may have failed or been wound up.
  • Ask them how many engineers they employ, ask to visit their offices. A good IT Service Provider will be more than happy to show you around their offices and introduce you to their engineers and consultants.
  • Are they using a virtual office or a hot desk facility? Many one man bands use these low cost services when actually working from home.
  • One man bands are often short lived, unable to earn enough to survive, they “get a job”, or unable to sustain a good reputation will change company details every few years.
  • Ask to speak to current clients, any reputable IT Service Provider will not only have written references, but will also have current clients who are happy to speak to you about the services which they use.
