Crashed Computers Are More Disruptive Than Absent Employees
Posted Monday, May 20, 2013 by Ryan Lew
Technology is becoming more prominent among businesses and also increasingly integrated. This has become so true that the fourth annual Brother Small Business Survey showed that 75 percent of small business owners felt that a crashed computer was more disruptive than an absent employee.*
While advances in technology are supposed to help office productivity, 86 percent of small business owners admitted to suffering productivity due to broken technology. Another issue that owners are facing is the vast array of technological options available to them. Sixty-six percent found themselves overwhelmed by the sheer amount of technology.
One of the reasons a computer crash is so disruptive is because of the dependent relationship workers have with technology. When a computer goes down, employees can no longer do work. At least if the employee is out sick, somebody else can cover for them. Another problem occurs when businesses do not have backup for their technology.
One of the ways to counter a potential crash is to invest in information technology support. A dedicated IT employee can help monitor and take care of the technology. Often, problems are caused by lack of maintenance.
