Seems a bit odd but let me explain! I bought my 2005 Chevy Suburban used back in 2013 but it had 100,000 miles on it. Practically brand new. It was the biggest vehicle I ever owned and I had always wanted one. It had all the bells and whistles that you could want for a young family and it made us feel safe.
We went everywhere with the Truck. The first year we bought it we went to Mount Rushmore. The next year we went to Disney. We took it to North Carolina, Missouri, Washington DC, New York and so much more. I also used it as my work vehicle and for its age and size, it did pretty good on gas being mostly highway.
For the first few years, it was great hardly any issues outside of maintenance. Then about 4 years ago it began to misfire, burn oil and the gas mileage was starting to go down. Also had issues with the heater blower and my driver’s side windows was stuck!
Even still we ignored the “cracks” because it was still a dependable vehicle we can take on trips. Some of the things like the misfires, heater blower, and window were fixable. They just needed some attention.
The repairs bills started going higher but we lived with it. Why? Because we had no loan payment, the cost to repair was cheaper than a down payment and it was still somewhat reliable.
As it started to approach 300,000 miles – it was burning more oil, misfiring more often, and was harder to maintain.
Finally I took a step back and realized there were way more “cracks” then I wanted to admit. I added up all the non-maintenance and non-wear and tear repairs. The total cost of ownership of that vehicle just to keep it operating cost way more than if I had bought a new car.
Your IT Service Provider may be great people to work with and, they may have been with you forever. Things are breaking but they are on top of it. Or when you call them they come. But they may be costing you more money just to keep operating the same way.

 

 

If your I.T. Service Provider isn’t doing the following
1. Challenging You to make changes
2. Performing Quarterly Business Reviews. That make sure your business stays in alignment with Best Practices and Standards
3. Isn’t finding ways to use technology to minimize your risks
Then they may be like my 2005 Chevy Suburban. A great comfortable provider that kept you safe at first. But hasn’t kept up. They seemingly don’t cost you a lot of money. But if you take a step back you will see the true cost of technology. Because of that is putting you and your business at Risk.
So, What happened to my Chevy Suburban? Even though I had a lot of fond memories with it. It was time to put it to rest and make a change! It was scary and sad but I am so glad I did it. My kids have grown and we are making new memories with a new vehicle. I have lowered my risk because I am not afraid to go on long trips again. I save a bit of money because the new vehicle is better on gas.

We found it very easy to work with Carmine. He gave a very clear and professional quote, he has been promptly responsive in all communications, and the network is working great. I feel very good about using his company for any future IT needs for our business.

Pam Watkins, Forks Bistro

Barton Heights had a very successful computer upgrade due to Carmine.  I met with him 2-3 months before the project and he gave us an estimate of the entire upgrade process involving 31 computers and a server.  He advised us and placed the order.  He also worked with us and ended up revising the estimate twice to completely satisfy our computer upgrade needs.  He added true value to his service as he was willing to perform the upgrade in the evening when we were closed to minimize our down time as we are a paperless business and rely 100% on our computers.  Carmine stepped up and took care of those problems as well, even though that was not his responsibility.  He always responds quickly to any issue that occurs.  I would highly recommend him to anyone!

12 years in business and I have been there and done that with other IT / Computer biz, and finally found one that listens, asks questions, and comes up with a plan.

There are some others that are good, but I cannot express the difference enough – they actually get it! Every business IS different with different needs and processes, and they take the time to find what is best for you instead of what they think is best for you!

Thank you, Carmine J. Corridore, for allowing me to have a stress free vacation this year! I look forward to working with you in the near future for some serious upgrades!
