When it comes to protecting your business and your network, leaving your computers in the hands of amateur may save you money today but cripple you in the future. Since these freelancers offer no ongoing support contracts, you are left to figure your own way out of the mess.
On the other hand, there are many professional IT companies who offer ongoing support contracts. They come in and fix your computers almost immediately. (right after they show the credentials to back up their claims). And, if there is a future problem, your support contract covers your company so that you can get back to work as quickly as possible.
When choosing a professional IT firm, do some investigation. Check their track record with other companies and find out whether they leave their customers satisfied with protected networks. To learn more about making this important choice, read the full article, IT Support Contracts Are a Great Fallback Position for Business (link above).
