Bralin was founded in 1994 as a one-man break/fix operation in founder Brad Kowerchuk’s basement.
We’re not in a basement anymore, and we don’t focus on break/fix anymore, either. To stay in business for over 20 years you have learn how to adapt.
And adapt we have. Bralin Technology Solutions started out with a reactive approach like most other computer companies in the mid-90’s, repairing computers whenever our clients had a problem.
The mid-90’s was decades ago, and yet lot of our competitors are still stuck in that break/fix mindset. Sure, it’s a great way to rack up profits, but those profits come at the expense of the clients. We realized that ongoing, preventative maintenance would save our clients a lot of money, so that’s the direction we took Bralin Technology Solutions.
Of course, we shouldn’t act too humble, as there’s something in it for us, too: proactive solutions save our clients money and that keeps them happy. Happy clients are more likely to stay our clients rather than leaving us for a competitor. If they’re happy enough they’ might even recommend us to others and help us expand… so the affordability of proactive solutions is truly a win-win for both us and our clients.
Better than Break/Fix: Proactive Solutions Provide Less Downtime, More Revenue
How exactly does preventative maintenance save our clients so much money?
Well, you have to consider the consequences of not investing in ongoing support.
Neglect to look after your equipment and eventually something will fail on you, and hardware failure will burden your business with productivity-killing downtime.
We’ll keep track of hardware and upgrade or replace outdated equipment it before it fails, so you won’t have to deal with near as much downtime. With less downtime your employees will have more time to get work done, and more productive employees means you’ll have an easier time meeting and exceeding your revenue goals.
Also, neglecting to properly secure your network will lead to disaster. A malware infection could really disrupt your operations, and if data loss is involved, it’ll really cost you. Also, there were over 300 million pieces of malware created in 2014 and that rate is only expected to grow in the coming years, so this is a problem worth worrying about.
It takes an average of $150 per compromised file to recover from data loss, and with thousands of files compromised in the average security breach, you’re looking at taking a six or even seven figure hit to recover from just a single incident.
We’ve obtained the CompTia Security Trustmark certification, which lets you know that we know how to assess your network to find vulnerabilities and fix them before they’re taken advantage of by cybercriminals. We’ll actively protect your data so you can avoid the budget-busting financial consequences of an online security breach.
You Don’t Have to Invest $150,000/Year in an In-house CIO
So, we’ll secure your network, maintain your equipment, backup your data, help you migrate to the cloud, everything you’d get from a handful of average IT workers (who make an average salary of $60,000 each).
For expert advice that helps you make smart investments in technology and see how it all fits into the big picture, you’d have to hire a CIO, who average $150,000/year. At least, that’s the investment you’d have to make if you went the in-house route.
Bralin Technology Solutions knows how to move from the server room to the boardroom. We’ll drop all the jargon and needless technical explanations and get right down to business value. We know how to explain what we can do for you in terms a C-level exec with little to no experience in IT can understand and get excited about.
So, let’s sit down and discuss your future. What are your long-term goals? We want to sit down with your leadership and show you how technology can be used to help you reach those long-term goals.
With Bralin Technology Solutions you get access to a full-time dedicated team of IT experts that can handle the responsibilities of a few in-house IT workers and a CIO, all for less than the wages and benefits you’d have to invest in a single full-time in-house employee.
