Specialist SME IT support service encourages all SME’s to be prepared
With cyber-attacks dominating the headlines this week, worldwide IT support and technology services specialists A&O IT Group www.aoitgroup.co.uk, is encouraging all businesses to consider the impact of overlooking their IT support.
The recently launched specialist SME and small business IT support service – A&O IT for Small Business – allows SME’s the opportunity to access the world-class expertise, skill and experience of A&O IT engineers that big businesses have come to rely on around the world. This includes a complete managed IT service through to crisis recovery, cyber security, remote data back-up, annual IT reviews, hardware management and cloud services.
Recent research from the company revealed that over half (54 per percent) of SME’s across the UK don’t have annual IT check-ups that could identify and prevent potential system issues despite over two-fifths of them (42 per cent) admitting that they’ve lost income due to IT issues.
Rod Moore, chairman, A&O IT said:
“Whilst we take it for granted that technological improvements are making our working lives simpler, it’s all too easy for IT to fall to the bottom of a company’s priority list. For many SMEs, outdated technology and lack of regular attention can negatively impact productivity as well as profit. Reducing the risk of spam, phishing emails, ransomware and cyberattacks has to be front of mind for small businesses that are more likely to be targeted due to their lack of adequate security systems.”
“Finding the right supplier to outsource these functions can be a great way to free up internal resources and reduce overheads. Our customers have the security of knowing their IT is being managed and maintained around the clock with annual reviews pre-empting problems.”
