What’s Your Real Profit?
Managed services in Tulsa cut down infrastructural operations and can increase your profit on an annual basis. If the increase margin is high enough, you’ll actually see profit after the cost of a given managed service provider (MSP). What you’ve got to do is factor in the real costs of operation.
For example, if your business pulled in $100,000 in a month, did you make $100,000 in profit? No. You had to pay taxes, rent, production, and marketing expenses. Then you had to pay your employees. If you can get all that taken care of and still have $50,000 left, you’re doing great. That said, there are other infrastructural costs you must take into account.
If you’ve got an on-site data center, you’ll have to update, troubleshoot, acquire, install, and back up that technology. One of the most costly aspects of using such a solution is associated repairs. These can add up very quickly. You may end up paying as much as $5,000 monthly, which is $60k a year. As a matter of fact, this is likely a low estimate– many companies spend $80,000+ annually on technology fixes. Your $50,000 monthly profit just dropped to between $43,000 and $45,000 and you still haven’t paid yourself or allocated any funds to scalable expansion.
Recouping Tech Maintenance Costs
Managed services in Tulsa can institute new tech solutions which severely minimize the cost of maintenance, repair, installation, and upgrades. You can even reduce personnel expenses through downsizing newly redundant departments. That which provides such value can be divided up several ways:
- Cloud Computing
- IoT Innovation
- Remote Operations
Between cloud computing and big data, you can really optimize your business. You’ll probably want to do it incrementally for the greatest cost-effectiveness. Start with something manageable like payroll. Install a cloud-computing application which surrogates the payroll department. Now employees clock in with their smartphone, and you’ve got greater accuracy and tracking ability as pertains to them. If that works out well enough, then maybe you’ll want to look into some big data applications that help you identify trends, encouraging the profitable ones and discouraging the costly ones. With the added savings, you can look into DaaS or Desktop as a Service. You can eventually outsource your entire internal data center to a cloud solution.
Through the Internet of Things, continuous information collection and cataloging can happen in essentially real time. Manufacturing, distribution, and infrastructural operations can all be cost-effectively optimized in a way which enhances your ability to compete in the marketplace.
Using a “floated” DaaS solution in conjunction with cloud apps and IoT will allow you to roll out a BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, campaign. Employees not needed at the office can clock in at home, do their work, and then clock out. They’ll cost less in terms of tech, likely be more productive, and expedite operations.
