Have IT Questions?
In the IT Industry, we call the Pay-By-The-Hour Computer Company the 'break-fix' practice. This type of company relies on the majority of its income on your technology breaking.
These companies usually charge per hour for support, or perhaps may offer blocks of prepaid time at a discount. When you call into these companies, they send out their on-site technicians to come to your office to solve your specific computer issue. These technicians must fulfill the amount of billable time required of them. It is standard practice for the technician to manage their own time, and to be responsible for producing their own billing to customers.
This Pay-By-The Hour method works for residential users with computer troubles, but is not recommended for businesses.
The second main type of IT Company is the “Preventative” Maintenance computer company. These companies schedule on-site visits on specific dates and times to provide regular preventative maintenance on your IT. Each technician works within a block of time that’s allotted to your company to complete a series of proactive maintenance tasks.
This preventative maintenance approach takes advantage of the customer by doing less, but charging more. Beware and avoid companies who follow this model.
