Overlooked and Often Unnecessary Expenses

Let’s be honest – there are a million items that pull at your technology budget. Some of them you buy and use, but never think about again… Power strips are a great example. The only time you think about power strips is when you need one and can’t find one! So when was the last time you had to buy a power strip for your business? How do you choose one? Some of them are $5, some of them are $60 – there are even some that are over $200! Each of them has the same output, the same wattage, the same ability to give power to your devices. But what makes them different? Why are some so expensive? Are they really better?

When running a business, you need to review your technology expenses and planned equipment purchases, and that should even includes power strips. So, how do you manage these items? What makes one a good choice and another an unnecessary expense? Have you ever even thought about this basic but useful item? Misinformation regarding simple things can lead to unnecessary overhead, and nobody wants that…

While there are a few things that differentiate them, most cost influence comes from the level of insurance associated with a power strip – that can adjust the cost dramatically! Other than that, power strips are all very similar and are just convenient ways to organize your technology to maintain safety and organization within your office. Spending unnecessarily on a “fancier” model is not financially beneficial (considering how many power strips a company might need). Since most power protection is handled by UPS devices and storing data in the cloud, there is no reason to spend heavily on something as simple as a power strip…

With that thought in mind, there are so many other small expenses that can add up for your business. Can you think of other items your company uses that have options that may cost more but don’t show much benefit for the cost?
