BLOCKBUSTER TO NETFLIX: I.T. IS NEXT
Once upon a time there was a magical kingdom called Blockbuster, the biggest in all the land. No other kingdom in the land surpassed Blockbuster, not even Family Video. This kingdom thrived during a time when people ventured out of their home to find the perfect video to pop into the VCR on a Friday night. As time passed and technology evolved, the people in the land wanted something different. They wanted to watch movies faster, cheaper, and without leaving their homes. Netflix heard the wishes of the people and a new era began. An era of streaming and set monthly payments. The people rejoiced and Netflix continued to grow and live happily ever after.

Much like the story of Blockbuster and Netflix, I.T. also has its own tale to tell. Your office is like your kingdom. Your kingdom should run smoothly and without interruptions as you carry out important matters of business. But what happens when there’s a disturbance in the land and you need some help with your computer, a program, or even getting rid of a virus? No problem, right? You make a call to your I.T. department and eventually comes a knight with a handy iPad and trusted screwdriver. Well, just like Netflix and Blockbuster, people want something faster, cheaper, and without needing to leave their desk.

Like Netflix, I.T. heard the wishes of the people and provided a solution. Outsourcing I.T. will save the company money, create solutions faster, and fix your problems without you having to get up from your desk. Your kingdom will run smoothly with a professional managed service provider serving you from across the land with a simple phone call or email. Or send a raven with a handwritten letter if that's your thing. Netflix and Outsourced I.T have a lot in common in their own ways.
Long gone are the days of leaving the comforts of home to find a movie or getting up from your desk to get your computer fixed. Blockbuster made the people very happy, but eventually its time ran out and Netflix became king. Now, its I.T.’s turn to step into the light and make the switch. You’ve already got the Netflix subscription for home, so why not step into the future even further to managed I.T. services for the office?
