Why Upgrading Your Technology This Year Makes Good Business Sense.

There are many reasons why a technology upgrade makes good sense; but this year, it's more important than ever. Read on and don't miss Reason number 1 — it's the best one by far — in fact, twice as good as last year.

Number 5: Help Retain Employees

Are your employees still working on old, slow computers that are prone to freezing up or crashing? That's not only hard for your business, it's hard on the employees who use them day in and day out. If you'd like to retain your best employees, give them fast, new computers with improved technology and see how they reward you with increased work output.

Number 4: Increase Employee Productivity & Security

Are you tired of watching your employees wait for minutes on end for their computers to boot up, a few minutes to edit or print large documents, and a few more minutes to restart their computer in the middle of the day because it got bogged down and started running slow? Do they sometimes have to wait hours or days because their computer needs more serious repair? All those minutes, hours and days can really add up. What's more — downtime can be minimized or even avoided with proper technology — and now is the perfect time to upgrade. And we all know the security risks inherent with running old software such as Windows XP or other versions no longer supported.

Number 3: Take Advantage of Slow Holiday Time

Does your office, practice or factory look a little sparse between the holidays in November and December? Of course it does. You already know it's the most popular time for employee days off and vacations. Even if your team is in, they are likely decorating the office, planning the holiday party or perhaps even doing a bit of online shopping during work hours. So why not take advantage of this slow time by evaluating and upgrading your computers and network infrastructure?

Number 2: Start 2019 Off Right with New Computers

There's nothing like starting the New Year off right. When the holidays are over and it's time to refocus on work, you want 110% from everything in your business — your employees, your hardware, your software — everything. The last thing you want is put the brakes on this progress just to upgrade your computer network. That's exactly why you need to upgrade it now.

Number 1: Get a Large Tax Deduction*

Now for the most important reason to upgrade your technology THIS year — you can get a very large tax write off. As you may have heard from your tax consultant, the Section 179 deduction for tax year 2018 has nearly doubled over last year and is now an impressive $1 million. This deduction is good on new and used qualifying equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for this tax year, the equipment must be financed or purchased and put into service by December 31, 2018. If you have never taken advantage of this deduction before, here are the basic facts. As outlined on, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income.

Remember, to take advantage of this tax benefit*, equipment must be purchased and in operation by December 31, 2018 so get started now. Call 281-403-9561 to set up your appointment or email us today Our work calendar DOES fill up. Don't wait.
