It’s Not Like It Used To Be 

It’s pretty clear that our world is getting more digital by the day, and as businesses embrace the new world of technology, there’s an increased need for good IT support. Whether its keeping things running smoothly or ensuring clear communication without any hiccups, businesses lean hard on IT services to keep the ball rolling. 

However, with increased need comes a glaring problem – the depersonalisation of support. At Compex IT, we’re regularly hearing from new clients who say IT support is just “not like it used to be”. Instead, they’re left frustrated with the lack of care, and feeling like they’re just another number in the system. 

So, what’s the root cause of this? And more importantly, how can your business avoid this?  

Why is it ‘not like it used to be’? 

You’re grappling with an IT issue that’s messing with your main operations, you reach out to your IT provider just to be greeted with crickets… alright maybe not crickets but an automated message which we’d argue is probably worse. It’s an issue many businesses will know well, in fact just thinking about it will probably make your stomach sink a little bit. 

Lots of businesses these days feel like they’re just another name on a long list of clients for big, impersonal IT companies. They miss the good old days when IT companies actually knew their name and understood their business. What once felt like a relationship now feels like a quick transaction with businesses left feeling like they’re not getting the attention they deserve. 

So, why is this happening? Well, many businesses often opt to use larger IT companies as they believe that the bigger, they are, the more resources they have. Whilst this can be true, it can also mean you’re much more likely to get lost within the numbers. If you didn’t do this and went with a smaller company but you’re suddenly having issues, your IT provider may have been part of a merger or acquisition.  

When small companies merge with bigger ones, they often lose that close connection they had with their clients. Instead of focusing on keeping their customers happy, these big companies care more about making money. So, what you’re left with after all these mergers are these huge, impersonal behemoths that care more about profits than pleasing their customers. 

Why choose personalised IT support? 

“How do I avoid the above?” we hear you cry! Well, the obvious solution is to go for a local IT company wherever possible
