IT for small businesses
If you are the owner of a small business you will be faced with many demands on your time and resources and for you IT is likely to be a necessary evil to run your operations but not a key aspect of what your business does.
Typically small businesses use desktops and laptops to access email, documents and spreadsheets. They may have a local server to share files with colleagues, or may have moved this online, and they perhaps have a venerable printer churning out letters, reports and invoices.
What happens when things go wrong?
The risk to your business is of course when these things start to fail and as a business owner you may not have the expertise to either anticipate the potential problems or fix them when they do occur.
Blue Cow provides an IT management and support service that can help. We'll do an IT Audit of your infrastructure to determine where the risks are and put in place a plan to minimize or remove them.

Once we've completed an audit we'll work with you to develop an IT Strategy for your business. This will include a plan to tackle any potential problems we've uncovered and include actions to mitigate them such as replacing aging equipment, obtaining software licenses, improving security or upgrading software. With your involvement we can tailor this to suit your budget and business priorities.
Your IT strategy does not just cover business risk and we will also look to include opportunities to improve your IT set-up such as upgrading systems, training staff or improving processes to make them run smoother.
