Smart Steps When Working From HomeRead more
Don’t let downtime keep you from moving products according to schedule – work with TNN to keep your operations running.
If you work in distribution and logistics, you rely on technology to collaborate and communicate with manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers. You must gather and share information in real-time, including shipping schedules and inventory levels. IT uptime is essential.
Downtime can result in significant damage to your bottom line — every minute that your operations are down means that you’re losing productivity and revenue.
When it comes to your logistics firm, it’s important that you find innovative and cost-effective ways to bring your goods to market quickly and efficiently. At the same time, it’s also important to reduce inventory and supply chain costs to achieve the highest level of profitability.
With the right IT support, balancing these two fundamental goals becomes a simple process.
The key priority for your firm’s IT support is to keep everything running on time – are you struggling with downtime?
Downtime is bad for business. Whether you agree or not, it’s a fact – just a couple years ago, small businesses with up to 50 million dollars in annual revenue reported that just a single hour of downtime cost them $8,600.
The main cost of downtime is not the fix itself, it’s the halt in your firm’s productivity. If an IT-related or natural disaster occurs and takes critical systems offline, employees will be unable to complete their tasks, yet your normal business expenses will carry on.
During that time, you incur all the expenses of running a business without the revenue you would usually generate. Even if downtime does not grind everything to a halt, some of your staff will have to divert themselves from their normal work to mitigate the problem – again reducing productivity. Furthermore, while your systems are down, you can’t move product according to the schedules you planned.
Downtime is often the result of poorly supported IT. The best way to approach downtime prevention is proactively – you need to keep an eye out for system issues that can spiral into total stoppages. You need to implement backup technologies and best practices to prevent outages. You need to enhance your cybersecurity to protect against cybercrime.
That’s what TNN will do for you.
You can’t settle for generic IT support – you need an IT company like TNN that will keep you running around the clock.
