It’s nearly impossible to run a business today without making use of some computer systems, smartphones and other such IT components. Few years from now, even street hawkers and others in a seemingly unorganized sector may start making extensive use of Point-of-Sale systems, have electronic payment facilities and store all of their data on the Cloud.
Yes, given the pace at which the Web and now smartphone revolution is moving forward, it’s not a farfetched possibility. It’s likely to come true and it might happen sooner than we think it would!
Growing reliance on Information Technology systems and its many benefits is what compels most small business enterprises to make use of dedicated third party IT services for the latter too have gotten better over the years.
Quick and high-end IT support, for example, is now made available remotely. Several IT service companies in Singapore have dedicated experts for each area such as data backup, IT security, cloud solutions, high availability systems, office IT setup etc.
For an individual business entity, it’s next to impossible to be able to afford all of these experts without of course having to jiggle between multiple freelance experts or companies. That’s expensive and troublesome both.
Also, IT service companies in Singapore are now adopting a consultative approach to their work. They do not just provide a flat fee service (in contrast to an old model of per-hour price), but also offer consultation to their clients.
