FREE Webcast: SMB Technical Support Services
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there are more than 11 million small and medium business (SMB) enterprises in the United States (businesses employing between 1-99 employees). According to Parks Associates recently-completed U.S. small business survey (SMB Demand for Technical Support Services, December 2010), 44% of SMBs deal with computer troubleshooting issues on at least a monthly basis. Furthermore, about one-half deal with Internet access issues, 31% troubleshoot networking issues, and 27% deal with server problems. In total, SMBs lose dozens of hours a month in lost productivity dealing with technology troubleshooting.
With often very heterogeneous technology environments, the growing use of server technology, critical needs for data backup, and unique needs for IT support and management, the SMB market has significant demand for one-stop premium technical support services.Presenters include:
