Small Business Tips
Create a master plan for technology, just as you would draw up a business plan, a budget or a marketing plan.
Design the plan so that it supports your business strategy and goals. Use it to guide technology buying decisions.
Think of technology purchases as investments, not costs. And, remember, when you have an overall plan, your company avoids wasting money on unnecessary purchases or quick fixes.
Start by determining your company’s needs. Look at what problems need to be solved and how technology can help.
Get expert help to guide you. Check your Yellow Pages under “Computers-System Designers & Consultants,” or ask your local chamber of commerce. As always, get references.
