Don’t Pay for IT Services You Don’t Need

When it comes to Information Technology (IT) services, many business owners feel like they must sign up for a monthly service plan to get the support they need. However, at 208Geek, we believe that prepaying for actual hours worked the most cost-effective option.

Drawbacks to Blanket Fees

One of the main reasons why paying a monthly fee for miscellaneous IT services is that this service is usually not specific. In other words, people pay it without understanding what they are paying for. Some companies charge for services such as hardware and software maintenance, virus protection, and data backups. However, if you only need a few of these services, you are essentially paying for things you don’t use. This can result in wasted money and resources.

Our Plans

At 208Geek, we offer a different type of plan. It allows customers to pay only for the services they need. In our pricing structure, you prepay for a certain number of hours of priority support. This means there are no hidden fees. When your computers require service, we show up on time, do our job, clean up after ourselves, and then apply the charge against your prepaid credit. This gives you the flexibility to scale your IT support up or down as your needs change.

Set-Fee Drawbacks

Another reason why paying a monthly fee for IT services may not be the best option is that it can be difficult to predict your IT needs in advance. If you sign up for a monthly plan, you are forced to estimate how much support you'll need each month. And most tech companies tend to over-recommend service coverage. However, your needs may fluctuate depending on factors such as the size of your business, the number of employees, and the amount of data you generate. This can result in paying for services you don’t need or not having enough support when you do need it most.
