3 Reasons to Update Your Tech Hardware - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

3 Reasons to Update Your Tech Hardware

Think about this scenario. You're sitting at your work computer, waiting for something to go through, and the server crashes. You have to call IT to come and fix it. The IT personnel inform you that most of your business cannot be conducted without that server. Now, your business is shut down, and most of your employees cannot do their job. On top of this, the IT guy is telling you that you'll be down for a few days because your server is too old; he can't find the parts. You're probably going to need to buy a new one. 

Unfortunately, this has happened to people before. While many IT professionals want to keep hardware up-to-date, it doesn't always happen because it isn't in a business' budget. That said, there are times when a company has to spring for new hardware. Here are three reasons you should consider updating your tech hardware as soon as possible. 

  1. Age

When working with older equipment, you may have a breakdown and find that you need to update your hardware because either you can't find replacement parts or it is the cheaper option. When you can't find the replacement parts, you'll have to work with a quick, temporary hack, or you'll need to shut down temporarily until you can get new equipment. That costs you productivity time, which means money. 

Rather than being left with temporary DIY hemp processing equipment until you find something newer, replace your hardware when it starts showing its age for better results. As soon as something is outdated, it's best to get the modern model. Then, you will not only be less prone to breakdowns but also enjoy the new features that come with modern technology. 

  1. Warranties

Have you ever noticed that your equipment will break the month after the warranty is up? There's a reason for that. Companies warranty their products for exactly how long they are designed to last. Once your free repairs expire, your equipment is outdated. Plus, your maintenance is no longer covered by the company, and commercial-grade equipment is expensive to fix. So when the warranty is up, you need to consider replacing your hardware, so you don't end up with repair bills that are so extensive that you have to wonder if it would have been cheaper to buy a new order management system when the warranty expired on the last one. 

When choosing new equipment, be sure to consider warranties. Not all of your warranties will be the same length, so it is essential to note the moment they expire. Equipment with more extended warranties should rank higher on the list of your potential purchases. That will put off your maintenance costs longer and require that you don't replace your equipment as frequently. 

  1. Tech-Grading

Many businesses believe they can use consumer-grade equipment to run their business. However, consumer-grade hardware doesn't come with good warranties, will not last as long, and cannot undergo the same abuse and troubleshooting that commercial-grade equipment withstands. If you choose to go with under-graded hardware, you'll find yourself recycling it after a short period. 

At first, this doesn't seem like a big deal because consumer-grade equipment is cheaper. However, in the big picture, you'll spend more on tech updates because you'll have to replace your hardware more frequently. You'll also experience more downtime, which will cost you productivity and income. Therefore, it's better to update your hardware if you have consumer-grade equipment. 

As you can see, avoiding replacing your hardware can result in extra expenses and cost your company money. Additionally, it can result in breakdowns that can cost you time and money. Instead, you should update your tech hardware to commercial-grade equipment with a good warranty. That can reduce the amount of downtime your business experiences. While you'll have to spend more on hardware upfront, you'll save and make more money in the long haul.
