As a business owner, you know the expense that malfunctioning technology can cause. When an employee reports a I.T. problem, dollar signs and lost time start running through your mind. Your first response, of course, is to call a local I.T. company to request a service technician. Yet, we know that often times the problem can grow from there with unreliable technicians. Too often, local I.T. service companies give the entire industry a bad reputation when their technicians are unpredictable, late, and unprofessional.
Calculating the Cost of Downtime
I.T. and infrastructure issues only become exacerbated when support services are not on time, efficient, and effective. Have you ever considered the cost of downtime for your business? A simple formula can help you calculate the cost of downtime:
(number of employees impacted) x (productivity impact factor) x (average hourly salary) + (missed revenue) = cost of 1 hour of downtime
You start by determining the number of employees impacted due to an I.T. issue, then you determine what percentage of their productivity is impacted, and you determine the average hourly salary. Once you multiply those three numbers together, you then add the amount of revenue that is missed due to your productivity being hindered.
(100 employees impacted) x (75% productivity impacted) x ($25 average hourly salary) + ($5,000 of missed revenue) = $6,875 cost for 1 hour of downtime
Costs only increase as time passes, therefore, it can be detrimental when a technician is late or is not equipped to fix the problem.
