managed services agreementNobody likes to pay for a service only to be told they owe extra. Hidden fees are not only aggravating, but they’re also dishonest. Here are five ways to avoid paying more than the original agreement.

Research first 

Become knowledgeable in the information technology world before your IT Consultant tries to use jargon or tricks to have you believe every word they say. You will pay less money overall, if you know what’s going on.

Set a price

You and your IT consultant should discuss your goals and how much you are willing to spend to achieve them. Don’t hire a consultant unless they are confident they can meet your desired goals at your set price. 

Sign a contract

Sign a managed services contract specifying the costs and the duties of each party. Having a contract will prove which services you are paying for. A written document will clarify what you are paying for so you can avoid added fees.

Be Specific

If your IT Consultant proposes a plan that will increase profits and ensure thousands of people will see your company, then make sure you see how exactly they plan on achieving those goals. You don’t want to spend money on a consultant who will waste time working towards a goal that takes years to achieve.

Avoid added expenses

Don’t let your business IT consultant spend your money on something unrelated to the job you hired them to do. If they want to add expenses to your chequebook, then ask for statistics that prove the results are worth the price.

To avoid hidden fees, choose an honest consultant that will give you fewer headaches and more profits. Call our IT consulting team or drop us an email. We are here to help you avoid hidden fees from other managed IT services companies.
