7 Warning Signs That You Are Settling for Mediocre IT Service

No one wakes up and seeks out mediocre IT service.

You buy into the promises of a service provider and expect that they’ll deliver. And on the surface, it probably seems as if all is well.

Mediocre IT persists quietly in the background of your business. If you’re not attuned to the warning signs, you could go months or even years without realizing you’re being shortchanged.

Step back for a moment and think about whether or not you’re getting the service your business needs.

You might be dealing with mediocre IT if:

  • You find yourself more involved in IT than you want (or expected) to be
  • You’re not always confident that your business technology works the way you expect it to
  • Your IT provider only reacts to a problem when you alert them to it
  • Even your simplest questions go unanswered for extended periods of time
  • You’ve ever taken care of an IT task yourself because it was faster than contacting your provider
  • Anyone working for your IT provider has taken a combative, condescending, or otherwise unhelpful tone when answering your questions
  • There’s no familiar point of contact for your communications with the provider

This is by no means an exhaustive list of warning signs, but you get the idea. Your IT performance is too important to leave to a partner that won’t go above and beyond your expectations.
