2018 Annual Session Conference

How to Avoid Getting Ripped Off with your IT Expenses

May 8, 2018 8:00am ‐ May 8, 2018 8:45am


Description

Computers are part of most every modern Practice, and unfortunately so are the inevitable IT expenses. As an industry insider I am asked all the time to evaluate “Am I paying too much?” and “What should my expenses be?”. Many Practices forge their own way doing their own IT in an attempt to ‘minimize’ costs (and maximize suffering). Others throw themselves to the wolves and just tell their IT company to “take care of it”. During this session I want to discuss some of the common approaches, and how an IT person could take advantage of you. By throwing some light on how it works from the inside, I hope you will be better prepared to make the best IT solution choices for your Practice. I promise to limit the ‘Geek Speak’ and discuss the issues in a way we can all understand. I’d love you to bring your own horror stories to share.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the differences between Managed IT services and Pay as You Go.
  • Better evaluate how an IT person can take advantage of your trust.
  • Select the IT services you need for your Practice considering the best overall value.
