We combine both price and quality into an unbeatable 1-2 knockout punch to all your IT woes.
I am writing this for the company who isn’t thrilled about their current IT Provider; but is locked into a contract with them. I am here to provide some strategies to wiggle out of a bad IT Contract and switch to a GREAT Los Angeles IT Provider like TRA Consulting Inc.
Term – In our industry, Managed IT Services contracts generally tend to last 1-3 years. A well written, but fair contract should have an escape or termination clause for not delivering a proper level of quality IT services. The contract should have a definition for what would be considered breach of contract by the IT Services Provider. But it also may not. The contract may have a clause for mediation of a dispute, it may not. Get a copy of your contract, read and understand your rights. Also, take note of the auto-renewal date if your contract does auto-renew. You need to know this when it is time to make the switch.
Interview other IT Providers – early and often. Want to know what a GREAT Modern IT Provider should be doing for you? Ask, get quotes, check prices; and interview for a good fit well before your term for renewal is up. There is one thing you do not want to do when choosing a GREAT Los Angeles IT Company to serve your IT Needs…you don’t want to rush it. Have a plan. Switching IT Providers is a delicate juggling act as services are migrated and old connections are terminated. You want to have your new Managed IT Provider selected and have your exit strategy planned well before you switch.
Talk to your old IT provider – If these strategies for exiting aren’t working for you, communication might be key to ending a bad relationship…or even improving it. If you aren’t happy with IT, be upfront about your needs. You might be able to come to a compromise, or at least an exit strategy that works for all parties.
