Small-Business Technology Investments

Your business can have the right technology
at the right price. Here's how to get it.


  • Small business owner invests in PCs, printer, server, network
  • Avoids cost of maintenance, upgrades, security, technology plan
  • Inadvertently places vital data, and the business, at risk


  • Why are owners of small businesses reluctant to spend on new technology?


Interesting feedback on that question comes from a Comdex Research Panel, as reported by BusinessWeek in its Small Biz edition.

  • 17% lack employees with necessary info-tech skills
  • 14% say just running the business leaves little time for IT upgrades
  • 13% don't know how to apply technology effectively to their own company
  • 8% can't justify the expense with a clear return on investment


  • Usual answer is a service firm that does "break-fix" repairs
  • Need remains for senior-level judgment: best choices for your issues
  • Trend now is to use technology consultant for analysis and plan
  • That firm then provides proper level of hands-on for each task
  • Result: small business, like big one, gets best fit for its needs
