"Why should I outsource this stuff to you?"

These tasks are nothing new in the world of IT. Larger businesses can afford their own in-house IT department to perform these tasks to keep them up to date, secure, and minimize downtime. However, with average salaries for a Microsoft Certified System Administrator in the ballpark of $65,000/year plus benefits, taxes, overhead, etc, the total cost of approximately $7,000/month is out of reach for most small businesses with less than 75 people. Even User/Desktop Support Technicians average $50,000/year (plus benefits, taxes, overhead, etc) and extra help would still need to be brought in to manage the servers and network. Even a "cheaper" Desktop Support Tech is out of reach for many small businesses.

Traditionally, small businesses would only call in help when they have a dire problem, and tolerate the annoyances of slow performance that is a drain on employee productivity. Most Computer Repair companies charge by the hour to solve problems, so they have no incentive to prevent problems or to resolve it as quickly as possible, because if they do they don't make money! Even the few out there that do offer preventative mainteance still charge by the hour, usually in the form of blocks of time that you commit to each month or pre-pay; but because of the time it takes to manage networks, these tasks are usually only delivered once a month in order to keep it affordable. Hackers, cyber criminals, viruses, spyware, adware, etc don't work only one day a month, and neither should your maintenance and security.

For a fraction of the cost of an internal System Administrator, BTG becomes your IT department for you. You'll have virtually the same attention and responsiveness of your own in-house staff, and the same goals as you of proactively managing system to prevent failure and downtime from ever occuring... Two things you'll never get from a "by-the-hour" computer repairman. And just like a salary is a fixed expense you can budget for, so are our maintenance and support services.

Call us today to find out how we can help you get the same benefits of a full-time IT department that much bigger companies get, at a fraction of the cost.
